24 April 2014
Excerpt: When developer Two Tribes released Toki Tori on WiiWare back in 2008, it was one of the finest puzzle adventures on the platform. The game was well received due to its interesting mechanics, fun items, and charming style.
Summary: The original Toki Tori was a very unassuming little Game Boy Color game that took the indie world by storm. Featuring an adorable little bird named Toki Tori on his quest to save his siblings, the puzzle-platforming gameplay was the perfect example of a solid portable adventure.
