Bliss Island review

Mediocre

AT A GLANCE
  • Nonsensical charm
  • Enough minigames to tide you over
  • Better than changing your desktop
  • Not much fun
  • Few good minigames
  • Quantity doesn't equal good

Bliss Island delivers on two levels: nonsense and quantity. The nonsense is generated by basing the game on the exploits of Hoshi the Zwooph, a ball of blue fluff that can blow air out of his trunk. The quantity bit comes from the 80-plus games Hoshi and his freaky friends appear in. There’s an air-blowing target game, a racing one, others based on football and Breakout, and so on.



While 80 mini-games is an impressive figure it has to be pointed out that few are included on grounds of must-play quality. Rather, Codemasters has carpet-bombed Bliss Island in the hope something will strike a chord with someone. Unfortunately there’s not much that does, as even though this is bursting with kooky cuteness and quirky ideas, it’s low on vital ingredients like real fun.

The fact that all these minigames were designed for people at work and/or the terminally bored give you a clue about their quality. Basically they’re slightly more entertaining than changing your desktop or idly looking out the window. Not great.
