Review: Ohno Odyssey (3DS)

One of the joys of writing game reviews is that sometimes it’s the least expected games that surprises you. When Big John Games’ Ohno Odyssey came across my desk, the thought that came to mind was: “Oh no!” Yet, this charming little alien filled physics-based puzzle game proved my initial reactions wrong and put a smile on my face each and every time one of the little aliens cried “Oh no!”, as they approached their inevitable demise.

If you’ve played a physics-based puzzle game, the basic gameplay formula is in play here. Without directly controlling your character on a 2D plane, you’ll need to make proper use of a multitude of items such as ramps, springs and balloons to devise a path to get your alien to the level’s end, which is, of course, a UFO. Yet, it’s the little alien, an Ohno, that you guide that’s so charming. The way its circular form rolls around is charming and its large mouth and eyes are largely hypnotic. To Big John Games, all I have to say is, “Oh no you didn’t!” [Review Score: 3.5/5 Stars]
