The Game Hoard (Apr 26, 2019)
There was a lot of potential for this to be a cute game that used its level-specific power challenges to gradually go from good fun to engaging challenges, but a lot of the design is undercut by the simple failure of the jumping momentum. It’s a game that can still be played through and enjoyed well enough, but the awkward nature of the slippery movement will lead to mistakes and restarts in a game that really wants to push you to remain extremely accurate in your movements. Having the powers be both important for battle and for level navigation makes them a good fit for adding variety to the play, but even this is let down a little by stages that don’t communicate what is needed well or provide powers in missable ways. Many of the problems can be pushed through with persistence to get to a decent and challenging experience, but the momentum mechanics and level design don't quite gel with each other as is.

Tobari and the Night of the Curious Moon offers cute anime characters, magic and adequate platforming in a serviceable package.Even with a few high points, however, there’s not much reason for 2D platforming fans to give this one a look. There are all sorts of platformers available for the same price or cheaper which offer greater value (in regards to length, challenge, creativity, or all of the above). Mostly, this is a purchase for those who are willing to show their support for doujin creators. Tobari and the Night of the Curious Moon is a mouthful of a title that isn’t as magical as desired.
