I've been in this weird mode where I'm having trouble focusing on a game right now. I started Trials Of Mana, got distracted and started playing Final Fantasy Adventure instead. Both games were games I was into. Yet. I don't know. I couldn't stick with them right now. I THINK it's because I've been watching Splatoon 2 videos lately and in the mood to play that again, but I had to order a copy since I couldn't find any local so I'm just waiting on that to arrive.
In the meantime, I started ANOTHER game. I figured something light to just mess around with. So... I downloaded Toki Tori on 3DS. I remember this game from my hardcore GBC collecting days. But I don't remember spending much time with it. Go figure.
Anyway, in the years since GBC, Toki Tori has been remade on all kinds of hardware. I was going to grab it on the Switch eShop, but it was only $2 on the 3DS eShop. I had some eShop credit to burn, and let's be honest, I get bored of puzzle platformers fairly quickly, so why spend more than I have to?
So Toki Tori is a puzzle-platform thing. You're a little bird and you have to go around and collect all the eggs in each level. You're given some items to use, but they have limited uses. So there's a right way and wrong way to complete a level, and you can easily screw yourself over. For instance, you might have three bridges and one warp. If you use the warp in the wrong place, you're stuck. Luckily there's a rewind feature that I'm using a lot.
So far I'm into the third world, which means I've beaten 24 levels. It's pretty fun. More fun that Trine 4, although certainly not as good looking. More fun than Boxboy + Boxgirl... so far. We'll see. Like I said, I LIKE puzzle-platform games, but I don't love them, and I tend to burn out quick. Why do I do this to myself?
