We’ve already gone over how you play and win in Nyoki Nyoki Tabidachi Hen. It’s a game that requires you to collect Nyoki Nyoki of various colors, line up combos, destroy them when you feel the time is right and send accrued garbage Nyoki Nyoki whenever you want to bury your opponents. But, we haven’t gone over why Compile Maru’s puzzle game works so well. It allows people to win using whatever strategy best suits them.
None of the great puzzle games lock you into a particular style. Classics like Tetris and Puyo Puyo succeed because you can win in many ways. People who can speed through such puzzles could steamroll their way through, while people with great spatial reasoning might set up incredible chains. Nyoki Nyoki Tabidachi Hen lets you go with either way in your quest to win. There’s no right answer, thanks to the degree of control you have over your Nyoki Nyoki.
It makes Nyoki Nyoki Tabidachi Hen wonderfully inclusive. When it comes to puzzle games, I’m a speedy sort. My strength comes from quickly and efficiently placing pieces in puzzle games. While this serves me well in Tetris, it doesn’t help so much in Puyo Puyo. People with better spatial reasoning can easily overwhelm me. With Nyoki Nyoki Tabidachi Hen, I can swiftly sort Nyoki Nyoki into their proper groups and start accumulating garbage within moments. If I see my opponent gathering together terrifying combos, I can start deploying the trash to prevent their plots.
This doesn’t mean that speed is the only way to succeed. Strategy works just as well, perhaps even more-so. Since Nyoki Nyoki fall in pairs, you can start properly grouping them for optimal combos. You can make arrangements to ensure they’ll detonate in groups once you start setting them off. Plus, the slight delay in left behind pieces means someone who really plots things out and keeps an eye on upcoming pieces could clear their screen in a minimal amount of moves. No degree of speed could set back someone so focused.
The control Nyoki Nyoki Tabidachi Hen affords a player is comforting. It ensures your chosen technique will always work for you. Sure, you’ll need to spend time facing off against fake and real opponents to get the right amount of experience in, but there are multiple roads to success in this puzzle game. It makes for quite an accommodating experience.
