Jolly Mouse's newest title, Wanna Oranges?, is a heartbreaking tale of one man's quest to survive in a world ravaged by plague. Just kidding. There's a cute panda and you have to feed it oranges. Do pandas eat oranges? Who cares! This physics puzzle is all about what's wholesome and fun. Click the floating ice blocks to destroy them, setting your Rube Goldbergian plan in motion, guiding the orange past spikes and platforms. Timing is key. There's stars to collect on the way, some of which expire after a few seconds. You've got to plan your path quickly if you want to keep your little endangered bear friend from crying. Don't let the kid-friendly aesthetic fool you. Wanna Oranges? has plenty of brain-scratching puzzles to keep you motivated.
The latter half in particular offers some especially devious levels, but the physics are especially worthy of note. They're crisp and quick, with not a floaty object nor clipping issue to be seen. Everything falls right where it's supposed to and it does so with speed and precision, making each orange live and die by your skills. It's reminiscent of physics puzzlers like Wake the Royalty and maybe Cover Orange (what is it with physics games and oranges, anyway?). There are a few puzzles halfway through that feel a bit out of place, some slightly easier than expected and a few where the solution isn't totally clear even after you've beat the level, but the vast majority are pure physics fun. Add a sugary sweet art style and you've got a real winner. Wanna Oranges? might not be grammatically correct, or provide accurate dietary recommendations for raising a panda, but it's got charm oozing out of every pore and puzzle challenge to match. Check it out. That panda's getting hungry.
