Billions Of Stars: Hoshi Saga 6

Gosh, can it really be over a year since I posted a Nekogames Hoshi Saga game? I do not understand the passing of time. Fortunately I do understand how to find stars in 25 simple but lovely microgames. I mean, I should, I'd already completed 125 of them. Bringing it up to 150 is Hoshi Saga Ringeon, and it's as worth playing as all previously.…

Star Plucker: Hoshi Saga 5

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.

Stars In My Eyes: Hoshi Saga 4

Oh my goodness, there's a new Hoshi Saga game. And it's in colour. But let me explain. If you've been following carefully you'll have noticed that every now and then I remember to check the site of Yoshio Ishii, NekoGames, to see if anything new has appeared. Because when something has, it's always worth a look. And this time: a fourth Hoshi Saga, the blissfully…

Seeing Stars: Another Trip To Nekogames

Every few months I sit up with a start and think to myself, "I haven't checked Nekogames for ages!" The obscure Japanese site, in a muddle of Japanese and English, is most known for the splendid Cursor*10 - a puzzle game that has inspired many others since. Then there's my absolute favourites, the Hoshi Saga games asking you to hunt down a star in dozens…

Star Search: Hoshi Saga 3

While it appeared a couple of weeks ago, I've only just noticed the latest Hoshi Saga game has been released. Yoshio Ishii is a wonderfully inventive man, his tiny, simple Flash games stacked with gorgeous ideas. And the Hoshi Saga are best of all, each comprising of 30 minuscule gaming morsels where you must aim to find a star. You can find part one here,…

Who On Earth Is Yoshio Ishii?

After playing both of the really lovely Hoshi Saga games (and then annoying my sister by not helping her when she gets stuck), I realised that they came from the same person who wrote the completely stunning Cursor*10, Yoshio Ishii. I then realised I don't have the faintest idea who Yoshio Ishii is, and wanted to find out. It's not immediately clear. For someone who's…

Hoshi Saga – Puzzle Loveliness

Don't thank me, thank friend-of-RPS Sam C, for today's wonderful puzzle game. And you will thank her, because this is joyful. Hoshi Saga is by Japanese developers Nekogames, it's a series of completely charming puzzles based around finding the star. Little more needs to be said - just go play. And then come back here to thank Sam, and then yell at her because you're…

Cursor * 10

Here's your Friday challenge, internet children: It's Cursor * 10. It's a simple enough affair - you click on the stairs to climb a level, hold down switches to reveal new stairways, or click on the boxes/pyramids to reveal other secrets. Thing is, you need more than one cursor to make it through. In fact, you need ten. Play through once, reach as far as…
