Joining Hands Review
by on January 13, 2012
Joining Hands has to be one of the most uneven games we’ve ever played. We sped through the first couple of level sets before the videogame equivalent of a stepped-on-rake rudely smashed us in the face, presenting a complex, tough puzzle. The remainder of the game was similar: lots of simple levels occasionally punctuated by one to make your brain fry. The thing is, none of this matters, because Joining Hands is lovely and will raise a smile on even the grumpiest visage.
The basic premise is that cute Peablins like holding hands, because then the Bogeyman won’t take them, and so you drag the multi-armed creatures about until they’re all linked. (Ironically, at level’s end, they all unlink and jump for joy, presumably then being taken off-screen by the Bogeyman they’d feared.) Later levels add complexity with new characters (including amusingly emo Poeglins who just want to be alone, man), and star awards add longevity, also showcasing that each level has multiple solutions.
