Gurumin is an action RPG so deliciously cute and energetic, and delivered with such spunky confidence, that playing it is like nibbling on a strawberry shortcake while chasing around an enthusiastic puppy. Sometimes you’ll be giggling at how much fun you’re having, other times you’ll be delighted at how adorable everything is, and the entire time, you’ll be thinking how good it tastes.
The art style is one thing that makes the game so delightful. Imagine characters with small bodies and large, prominent eyes who like to exaggerate their expressions. Now, add in some vivid colors, strangely proportioned structures, and scrumptious-looking sweets. Finally, throw in a dash of wacky personality traits - such as a cheerful monster who dances to restore morale or another who adopts the cultural traits of whatever sombrero, beret, or hat he dons - and you’ve begun to understand Gurumin’s charm.
