anika’s odyssey: land of the taniwha
Developer: Tricky Sheep Games
Notes: Play as Anika Greenfield, a young girl who strives to save her toy rabbit from certain doom. This is the first game I reviewed which feels like it is intentionally set in Aotearoa - ponga trees, Haast’s Eagles, and all. However, the game also has an odd Alice-in-Wonderland vibe, which doesn’t quite gel with the bird calls and the use of a Taniwha. Was it necessary, or is this truly a cute homage?
Overall Rating: Free to play online - give it a go?
