Star Plucker: Hoshi Saga 5

I'm so running out of star-based headlines for these games.

Crikey, a new one already! I do so love the Hoshi Saga series from Nekogames, as I was saying but only the other day. Part five is available now, and it’s fantastic. Once more there’s twenty-five micro-challenges asking you to find a star within an inventive, cute way. And unlike part four, this time there’s toughies amongst the delightfully simple.

Which is how I like to think of myself amongst the RPS team. I know I’ve said it before, but the reason these games are so compelling is not just that they’re beautiful (once again part five is in colour, with a lovely pastel, almost crayon-coloured theme), nor that each is yet another smart idea that could be fleshed out into its own Flash game, but that I play them with a broad smile on my face. Even those half-star difficulty levels (out of five stars) still make me beam as their easily, but wonderfully, completed.

You'd never have thought of this puzzle! Never!

People should care about these games as much as I do. Because I’m right. Play these. If you’ve never played any, there’s 125 levels waiting for you! What a treat!
