Haiku Rescue

Review by jroatch all reviews by jroatch

A short game of clicking on paper fragments containing haiku.
While much of the UI and ground debris implies that it was intended to be a deeper survival crafting game, but in it's current form it has been simplified to 4 rounds of gathering paper.

Overall fairly playable.
Artistically set in snowy field with OK looking chunky graphics.
Technically simplistic path finding with straightforward use of UTF-8 for the haiku. To be fair, fully automatic path finding would remove all the challenge.
and passable genre of craftsmanship when paper fragments automatically combine into full haiku.

Scores: Overall 3 Artistical 3 Technical 3 Genre 2

Command your wizard to fight against the monsters in turn based tactics game.

Overall it is a bit difficult to play the game.
The title screen has some well done pixel art. The game's ground is snow, and you can make rhyming sentences for magic spells.
Technical aspects include A* path finding for movement and usage of UTF-8 text beyond ASCII.
While you do have to craft spells from words with a lot of trial and error, the true genre of the game seems to be a turn based tactics game.

Scores: Overall 2 Artistical 4 Technical 5 Genre 4
