Tappingo 2 isn’t very deep. There aren’t any unlockables, no stats to raise or levels to gain. It’s just a simple puzzle game that gets more difficult, bit by bit, as you progress. And it’s unnaturally fun.

Your objective in Tappingo 2, exactly like its predecessor, is to fill in various pixel art with your stylus. Imagine Picross, except that when you drag your stylus, your line doesn’t stop until it hits something. At a basic level, that may seem… boring. But for some reason, Tappingo 2 has its own way of keeping you playing. Maybe it’s the minimal amount of time you can spend playing. Maybe it’s catering to the “completionist” lifestyle. In any case, finishing puzzles just feels good, and that’s the best thing Tappingo 2 has going for itself.

Having made its début on Nintendo DS in 2011, the Inazuma Eleven series has become something of a surprise hit in Europe – spawning two sequels and even a Wii spin-off.

Hello, and welcome to the final day here on Destiny Island. We’ve had a look at a few things the game has to offer, but what we haven’t seen a lot of is the emotions that Tomodachis feel after and during certain events. First, we’ll look at what happens when residents fall out with each other. Fall outs come in two forms, minor arguments and massive fights, although neither seems to affect their mood towards each other after. If two residents have a minor argument you’ll be able to tell as they’ll be giving off steam and have a mean look. Things can be sorted out rather easily by just talking to the resident and telling them to make up or apologise.
