Hoshi Saga Ringohime
Hoshi Saga Ringohime is the latest installment of the popular and revered Hoshi Saga series by Yoshio Ishii, and it's in full, glorious full color as all the "Ringo" versions of the series have been. There are 25 new stages to clear, so don't just sit there, click and play! :)
For anyone uninitiated to Hoshi Saga, there is but one objective: find the star in each stage. How you go about doing that will be different with each new stage you come to, so you'll have to use your imagination to find it. The artwork is gorgeous with its soft and striking watercolor hues and textured backgrounds. So beautiful, in fact, that you won't mind just staring at it for a while as you work through what to do.
Ringohime continues the relatively light difficulty of puzzles as with the rest of the Ringo series, and some of the more hardcore puzzlers out there have complained about this. However, when you consider the fact that the series enjoys an enormous fan-base, it's also not difficult to understand why the games have drifted into light and casual territory.
Play the entire Hoshi Saga Series:
Ringohime is believed to the be last installment in the "Ringo" set of games with this one ending at level 100, just as the first 3 Hoshi Saga games came to a conclusion before Ringo. Considering the popularity of the series, I am sure we can expect more Hoshi Saga in the future as this has become a tremendously successful puzzle series for its author. Hoshi Saga Next, please, and be quick about it.
