Video Game Den
Umihara Kawase is brilliant and is the perfect example of a game that's more that the sum of its parts. I really recommended it - It may not look that sophisticated at first glance but you will get hooked to it (sorry for the pun, I couldn't pass this one up).

All in all Umihara Kawase is a fun and different game of great quality. I was surprised to find something as innovative as this on the SNES. Play this game! There is a successor available for the PlayStation that has slightly better graphics so you might like to check that one out too.
