Plättchen: Twist 'n' Paint - WiiWare World review

A portion of a WiiWare World review of Plättchen: Twist 'n' Paint...

Plättchen: Twist 'n Paint is the videogame equivalent of trying to pat your head and rub your stomach at the same time; there are too many elements to consider in tandem for this to be considered to be much fun. You not only have to pay attention to the playing field but also gravity; your FantasyME, obstacles and items - all while you try to coordinate twisting your wrist to select a colour to paint with from the wheel. This convoluted game mechanic is then further complicated by a series of additional game modes designed to extend the longevity of this sub-par game.

The price tag of 1500 Wii points is extortionate taking all this into account; it would have been far preferable to have had a much shorter game which offered a more refined and focused experience. Considering that WiiWare already has several far more accomplished puzzlers on offer at a lower price this really is one to avoid. We applaud Bplus for trying to bring something new to the table but they have succeeded only in overcomplicating what otherwise could have been a decent game.
