Teddy wants to propose to his girlfriend, and she has no use for diamonds. What's a bear to do about it? Why, collect hearts to show her how much he cares! It'll be a grizzly affair! Muahahaha!... oh, wait? What's this called again? Para Cute? Hmmm. Sounds like we won't be needing that pun and maniacal laughter after all. Or the alibi. *sigh* I guess playing an adorable game of avoidance is okay, too.
Para Cute, from Donut Games has you guide your intrepid teddy through a series of caverns using his parachute. Teddy follows your cursor, so make sure you lead the way around the rocks and point him towards the hearts along the way. Small ones are worth less than the large ones, but the large hearts are often trickier to get to. If you happen to venture too close to the rocks, teddy's parachute will burst and your reflexes will be tested as he plummets through the twists and turns. Aim for the pillow at the end of the level for a safe landing, or teddy's dreams will be crushed and the game will end. You don't want to be responsible for destroying a teddy bear's dreams, do you? That's worse than making a kitten cry!
At only six levels, you can probably complete Para Cute in, well, the amount of time it takes to eat a donut. But with sweet, sharp graphics and simple to master casual gameplay, it's surprisingly addictive. Later levels feature warp holes that will spit you out in different locations, letting you collect even more hearts or just plot a different course. Adding in power ups or different obstacles would have served to spice up the game, but as it stands, Para Cute is a fun little game for all ages. Shoot for the high score and bring two love-bears together! Just don't forget to give your special teddy a squeeze every once in a while.
