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.
With tons of alternate routes, charming, if unimpressive graphics, and a unique physics engine that rewards skillful play over anything else, Umihara Kawase is a great title that's far more addictive than its simple premise has any right to be. The learning curve serves as a giant hurdle, but should you brave the jump, you'll find a diamond in the rough.
