The game, available on the Nintendo Switch, is full of bright colours and iconic Disney characters like Mickey Mouse and Goofy.
Tsum Tsum, the digital equivalent of popping bubble wrap, was a free-to-play game on mobile devices before moving to Nintendo’s family-friendly console.
Ten games come wrapped up in candy-coated graphics and brighter colours than a disco in 1985. A rhythm dance game doesn’t really work, but stuff like Ice Cream Stacker, in which disembodied Tsum heads fall from the sky as you stack them up, will have you gurning until dawn. Tsums, for the uninitiated, are collectible stuffed toys from Japan. Despite the presence of iconic American characters – Mickey Mouse, Goofy, etc – the escapade feels more Japanese than karaoke at a sushi bar.
Mini-games such as Tsum Chase, a Pac-Man clone, will appeal to retro fans, and Lost Treasure Push, a coin-collection arcade affair, will appeal to everyone’s inner gambler. On the whole, this mini-game collection is best suited for mini-gamers (aged 12 or under).
