Kami Retro feels like an old school arcade app that has been modernized for tap and swipe play. Navigate your little guy from point A to point B by hopping platforms and collecting stars (points) while avoiding falling into the water. There is a puzzle element to this game where you have to figure out how to get to your destination.
The first 12 levels is called “Countryside” and there is a tutorial at level 4 for the Springboard. The animation shows a circle around the springboard and your finger dragging it into position. I tried a few times to drag the springboard but couldn’t get it to move, so I had my husband watch the tutorial with me, and he got it on the first try. Basically you have to tap the springboard to activate it, THEN drag it into position.
The second set of 12 levels is called “Funfair” and the extra feature here is the fan. You need to place the fan in a location where you need the assistance of the wind blowing and jumping alone won’t quite get you to the next platform. It is also activated with a tap and then moved by dragging.
I tested the HD version of Kami Retro. The graphics are colorful and the gameplay is original, Kami Retro has me hooked.
