Cookie's Bustle [J] Rodik 1999

You play as a 5-year old girl who imagines herself as a teddy bear. It can be said that the attraction of this game is in its twisted world view. Contrary to the colorful and cute impression received from graphics, the world weaved with poisonous humor and refracted characters is rather oriented towards adults, and that theme often also has a speculative element. However, it is not an extreme kind of thing that definitely restricts users, it is made with a wide range of layers from the adults to the children in view, and it is of a level that you can play with peace of mind. Supporting that view of the world is a graphic colored with delicate CG and pop color sense, animation is basically made in a bird's-eye view at the same time while being carefully made in some scenes, sticking to everywhere I feel it. Music also originally produced by musicians, and they showed extraordinary commitment, and a lot of BGMs which were covered mostly by live music are very high standards. Also, while listening to the pleasures of speech, voice actors also have real strengths and match without incompatibility. However, technically it is fixed at 640 × 480 resolution and does not correspond even to full screen, the sound does not correspond to hardware, and there is no setting with options at all, so dissatisfaction still remains. The content is an adventure which collects items as mentioned above and advances while solving mysteries by repeatedly talking with various people, but a mini game for getting medals is inserted in it. In addition, Cookie's physical condition management is important in this game, not only neglecting ability in the competition will fail, but also beyond limit will be dead and the game will be over, so it is necessary to always be careful. Mystery solving is not a crazy thing, but it is not necessarily a necessity, there are cases that need to take a certain step, items are difficult to find, it is somewhat difficult without a hint at all. Regardless of the important part, in fact it is drawing attention or hints are hidden in the conversation with the characters. However, if you carelessly miss this hint, there is also the possibility that it will become clear as there are no functions such as notes and files. Especially at the final stage you may need to play while taking notes. One thing is that save games can only use the same slot. There are two kinds of endings, Good and Bad, but eventually you will have to start over from the beginning if you want to see both. Certainly there is a branch point, so it can not be very good to finish with a no-saving ahead. If you only clear the play time, it will be possible if it is 3 to 4 hours. However, this game is quite enjoyable, such as an event unrelated to clearing, and it is made too much for such things so it is not too bad if you skipped them. Therefore, wandering around this world slowly and chillingly is probably the way to enjoy it.
