Ubooly and Friends
It's hide-and-puzzle time with Ubooly and Friends! All twelve of Ubooly's friends are hiding somewhere on the nine-screen map, and the only way to reveal them is to point and click around and solve puzzles relating to the clues they give. Pick up or interact with items with the mouse, and navigate by clicking the blue arrows on the edges of the screen. Where inventory items are concerned, click on the magnifier in the corner of an item to hear Ubooly's comments on it, or drag the item out of its card if you think you know where it goes; if your inventory gets crowded, click the arrow button to scroll through it. If you get stuck, click the fortune-telling platypus in the upper left corner of the map and he'll supply you with a hint.
If the premise sounds familiar, it should. Its author, BenRadish of BeardShaker Games, was also the one behind Tanooky Tracks, which is very similar both in art style and in gameplay, and there's no reason to complain about that. The puzzles are logical and well-designed, the tropical environment is well implemented, and the graphics and audio have a charm all their own. Ubooly's comments on everything can get a little annoying, but as cute and full of personality as he is (to say nothing of his friends as they all appear) that's hard not to forgive. Also, the game's apparently an ad for some sort of iTunes stuffed animal, but here on Cas-Ga we judge the game, not the merchandise behind it... and this time around, the game definitely passes judgment.
