3 Pandas in Japan
If you've ever unwittingly come upon ninjas while shooting picturesque photos on vacation, only to have your camera stolen because you may have inadvertently taken a photo or two of said ninjas, then you can relate to the plight of 3 Pandas in Japan, a charming point-and-click puzzle game by FlashTeam. And despite the unwritten rule that you should never ever try to take on a ninja, the panda friends are determined to get their camera back by working together to figure out what order to click things in order to reach the exit on each screen.
Click to make the pandas walk, and watch for clues on the screen indicating places where they can climb or jump. Each panda has a unique ability which may be used to help the group advance in the level. When you click an individual panda to access this ability, a bubble will appear over its head. This mechanic is a little clunky, and while it's fun to figure out puzzles this way, I wanted to be even more integrated into the gameplay. What 3 Pandas lacks in difficulty it more than makes up for in way of cuteness. The pandas are just plain adorable, and the fact that they want to help everyone they meet despite being on a mission to get their camera back makes them all the more endearing. The addition of some mini games is a nice way to mix things up. The artwork just pops with color and that along with the fun characters you meet along the way give the game great personality. So if you've ever wondering if a pack of pandas can take on a pack of ninjas, look no further.
