Yosumin is a very Japanese game, from the hyper happy voices that cheer you on to the spritely tunes that could have been ripped from the 16-bit glory days. The Yosumin game pieces have been caricatured into cute little faces that inhabit the game board. You won't be blown away by the visuals but the presentation is clean and simple. It's hip to be square. Gameplay is an exercise in pattern recognition. Players must create rectangular shapes on the screen by connecting four corners of same-colored pieces. The bigger the box you make, the more points you are awarded. If you manage to make one giant square over the entire screen you'll create a "Yosumin." Over time new game mechanics are introduced such as winged blocks that can be swapped with another piece on the field. Finding possible shapes in all the clutter can be difficult, and time is ticking. If you don't meet your quota before time runs out, it's game over. The PC version presents a story mode where players must locate the many shards of a shattered stained glass window. This is a very welcome addition, but it's sad to see the fun multiplayer mode axed.
I did not expect this much from Yosumin. The graphics style is really nice, the whole game looks really cute. The music is really relaxing and Japanese-sounding, I loved it. The presentation is nice, but how about the gameplay? The gameplay consists of you making rectangles with the same types of yosumins(the blocky things). It may sound like Bejeweled, but it's not. The gameplay is really addictive and you are constantly getting rewards and new features while playing. So why are you still reading this? The game is beautiful, has nice gameplay and music and is only 10 dollars!
