It may be simple by today's standards, it may not tickle the fancy of the Doom generation, but it's got a kicking soundtrack, it's more addictive than cocaine and it's the best argument for having Windows 95 I've seen.

Despite these porting problems, however, BAKU BAKU remains a challenging puzzle and an enjoyable distraction that stretches from five minutes during your lunch hour to “just one more game” well after midnight.

Da grabschen sich die Sega-Leute die uralte Spielidee vom Sortieren herabfallender Symbole und erfinden ein Regeldetail dazu. Das Resultat: Fesselnd!

In the end though, it's not graphics or sound that matter in a puzzle game. Baku Baku is quick, competitive (the game includes modem play), and addictive, and that's all that really matters. If you've been waiting for a puzzle game with a little bite (sorry, I just had to say it), this is one of this year's best.

So, if you're feeling a little depressed because your life seems devoid of a good Tetris clone, then by all means seek this game out (or therapy).

Insofern unterscheidet sich Baku Baku vom Tetris-Original, weil es in erster Linie darum geht, dem Gegner eins auszuwischen. Allerdings wirkt die Präsentation des Spielchens nett und gefällig aber höchst durchschnittlich, ist eher auf kindliche Bedürfnisse zugeschnitten und bietet keinerlei neue Ideen. Da ich keine Tetris-Kopien mehr sehen kann, halte ich den Preis von rund 70 Mark trotz des unverändert hohen Suchtfaktors für viel zu hoch.

Baku Baku Animal nimmt zwar auf der "Nettigkeitsskala" einen der ersten Plätze ein, neue spielerische Elemente sind jedoch nicht zu finden. Wer schon die eine oder anderen Tetris-Variante gespielt hat, wird bei Baku Baku nichts Neues entdecken können. Vielleicht ist es endlich an der Zeit, Tetris in den längst verdienten Software-Ruhestand zu schicken.
