Girl

In a small floating world lives an unusual little girl who has a secret: She can change into Koobus, her mechanical alter ego. Cubus can lift and carry large objects and can do amazing things like lift wooden planks to use as a bridge or pull and throw large pipes.

The couple spends their days in the comfort of their home, until one day a strange, dark creature crushes the Sacred Machine, the heart of the planet. All the creatures of the planets are now in great danger, and the brave girl must find a way to get to her junk. I hope Juncle can provide the necessary tools to fix the frightened engine. However, the plot of the game doesn’t quite go as planned, as Jenkle has gone a little crazy!

Cubus Alter Ego

You control the little girl and her Cubus alter-ego by pointing and clicking on living scenes full of strange and surprising things, movements and interactions with the environment. If you need a girl to use her gifts and turn into a Cubus, she can turn into a Cubus-like robot with the push of a button.

The little girl, as she calls herself, can jump and is light, while Cubus is heavy and bulky, but compensates for that with the ability to lift heavy objects. You go from one to another to solve all the puzzles in the game.

Puzzles make the game

It is in quality puzzles that La TOHU really shines. You collect objects that you can use, push on objects and turn on switches. Everything is in the usual style for a game of points and clicks, but each puzzle is different, feels unique and integrates best with its surroundings. The puzzles are difficult, and some can be a little confusing and frustrating to complete, but they all give a great sense of accomplishment when you complete them!

Occupied World

The story of the games is told through large text or thought balloons. The girl and Koobus don’t say a word. They both make noise and shake their heads when you click on something that can’t immediately be used for a puzzle.

Because the game environment is a bit busy, it’s sometimes hard to know exactly what to do. You can click on the clipboard next to the menu icon in the top right corner of the screen to view your goals, so you always know what your next step should be.

Tooltip system

In addition, there is a sort of clue system that helps you, even though it is the puzzle itself that unlocks the clue. This is a time lock where you must press a button at the right time to decipher a clue that takes the form of a dark image. However, the instructions are given entirely without words, making it a little difficult for you to understand the meaning of the pictures before solving the puzzles.

Visual aids and controls

La TOHU’s visuals are beautiful and whimsical, as you can see from the photos. I love the look of the game, with everything that happens in each scene. There are things you can interact with, strange and wonderful creatures and outlines you can click on to provoke a reaction in certain scenes.

For anyone who has ever played a point-and-click game, the controls are a standard question. Click on a specific area for a little girl or a cube to go to that specific place. Sometimes I had the impression that the controls were a bit blocked, otherwise I would lose the needle in the frantic scenes. But that didn’t distract me from the game or keep me from enjoying it.

Music and sounds

The game’s startup screen recommends the use of a headset during the game. And I agree with this recommendation, because it is fun, with all the sounds and little noises around. The music is by Christopher Larkin, the same composer responsible for the soundtrack to Hollow Knight, needless to say!

Completion

If you’re looking for a solid and fun point-and-click title, look no further, because that’s exactly what point-and-click fans will find in La TOHU!

La TOHU is a great adventure that captivates you from the start, with classic game mechanics. And a beautiful soundtrack that adds detail to the quirky world with its music and sound effects, with satisfying puzzles that require your thinking skills.

Final Verdict: I like loose.
