    This is a fun little game with an original approach. The fact that it is also cute and somewhat child-like works fine for me – so long as there’s no one to laugh at me!

    The gameplay is straightforward but much harder than it first seems. Peabins are little round blob creatures with varying numbers of arms. It is important for their happiness that all their hands are held by someone else. So, on a grid of hexagons, you must place them all so that their hands join.

    So if I have a peabin with 2 arms and 2 others with 1 arm, the 2 armed one will be in the middle, a one armed peabin on either side. It starts from there and gets more complex as each new level is beaten. There are obstacles around which peabins must connect, stars for bonuses, peabin relatives whose beliefs mean they have different hand holding traditions, etc.

    The graphics and animations are both simple and good, the voices cute, music upbeat. There are ten chapters with up to 18 episodes in each, and you can replay any episode. (Each episode was still taking me less than a minute at chapter 3, but I was definitely slowing down.

    This is a good game to play with the kids, no doubt about it, and it is also a nice little game for when you want to lose yourself for a while.

    And it has the advantage of being different for those of us with misspent youths (not to mention middle age!), playing pc games all the time.

    I Recommend This Game!
