Tama: Adventurous Ball in Giddy Labyrinth (Sega Saturn review)

Developer: Time Warner Interactive
Publisher: Time Warner Interactive
Released: 1994

Tama: Adventurous Ball in Giddy Labyrinth is a ball rolling game that was only released in Japan.

+ The overhead map that's displayed prior to each level commencing is a good idea to help plan your route.

+ Some of the later levels feature nice puzzle elements that feature environmental interaction.

+ The music is charming and each track does a great job of encapsulating the mood of the themed worlds.

- The physics are incredibly floaty (making precision a challenge) and the camera angles never give you an ideal view. 

- The action is slow and it often feels like your ball is moving through treacle, even at its fastest speed.

- Only includes 30 levels, so unless you're interested in improving your stage times there's nothing else to do.

- The 3D polygons feature rudimentary textures and are sometimes missing them entirely.
