A totally great platformer with tons of cute girls!
Who likes Jump ‘n’ Runs, Metroidvania is not averse, never wants to go Game Over along with super designed levels and great music MUST grab!
One of the best games in this category!
Honestly, I picked up this game as a joke for stream expecting it to be a terrible fanservice mess… but it’s actually really good. I mean, it is definitely a bundle of fanservice, but the gameplay gets better and better as it progresses. The game has good replayability, all of boss fights are solid, and the abilities you unlock make the game more and more fun. I also think the ‘Magic Mode’ would make for amazing speedruns. Definitely a good game for the price point and I hope to see a sequel, or see the game grow in the future.

| Byte sized review | Lost and found |
| Graphics | 3/5 - I am generally not a huge fan of anime, especially when it’s hypersexualized as most often than not seems to be the case to the uneducated (in the art form) like myself. As a kid growing up I always thought of it as too raw and too ugly for my tastes much preferring the style of western cartoons, but over the years I have gradually come to enjoy some of Studio Ghibli’s output (that is about as far as my anime adventurousness extends as I have never had any desire to seek out other studios output). Forgotton Anne visually reminds me of Studio Ghibli’s output and that is the highest praise I could possibly reap upon it. While I would have much preferred a more traditional western cartoon animation style, and that is just my personal taste, it works here and continues to help me broaden my horizons which is only a good thing. |
So that’s where my socks go. Well, I hope they had a nice life.
We all lost something. Whether it be that jacket that you forgot to take with you or an important paper that you misplaced. Or perhaps you forgot you had something as years pass. If you’re lucky, you would be able to find it again, if not, it’s a mystery where it ended up. However, what if a whole other universe houses these items and gives them life?
Anne lives in such a world, along with another human named Bonku. Anne is the Enforcer, which requires her to keep the order and make sure those not following the rules gets repercussions. But why should Forgotlings (lost and forgotten things) listen? Well, Anne and Bonku both wield the Arca which can give or take away Anima, their power source and their life energy. If a Forgotling’s Anima is taken, or distilled, they will just be a regular old item again. However, rebels have risen up despite the threat of being distilled and has threatened the near completion of the Ether Bridge as well as everyone to go back to their owner. Things have gotten too far out of hand, it’s time for the Enforcer to step in.

Lovely little platformer in the spirit of Celeste, Super Meat Boy and Kaizo Mario Romhacks, super charming and original.
Each level is a one screen precision platforming challenges to rescue the kitty (Save the Animals!). Beautiful artwork and the soundtrack is a banger.
The difficulty is a little all over the place. Hard levels are followed by easy ones and vice verse. But the game never became repetitive thanks to a wide variety of obstacles. I hope to see more!
Sure at first look it reminds you of Celeste, but don’t get fooled, it’s entirely its own thing. The level mechanics and physics makes it feel unique. I’m loving the art style and music, will definitely finish it!
Just 100%ed the game. What an experience! The last episodes are a thrill. So satisfactory. If you’re a platformer fan do yourself a favor and play it!

Nice and cute game, and I hope you get updates and more improvements in personal expressions.
Tobari 2: Dream Ocean
I played the first game and loved it, and so far I’m loving the second game.
Nice platforming. The videos don’t indicate how difficult it can be to get some of the stars. Completing a level is easy, but if you want to collect the 3 stars hidden in each level you have to be prepared to redo a section over and over until you land it right.
What is nice about this game is it lets you choose the difficulty and how much you get out of the game is up to you. It also has a nice setting, and the ability set can be interesting and with fun puzzles that also require reflexes.
Definitely easier than the first one, though the post-story challenge levels are still tricky for those that like it difficult. Each level has 3 star fragments to collect instead of the one moon shard in the first Tobari, which offers a bit more variety and less grinding in one spot. Features an updated outfit for the hero, new magic types and a fun beach/sea theme. Otherwise, its fairly similar to the original, both of which are fun little platformers.
