Most point and click adventures have a purpose that grounds them. In Chuchel, you will be solving puzzles and interacting with the characters just like a normal game—but it doesn’t have the same logic or a theme that grounds it like most games. Instead, you’ll be treated to an adventure that it is fun for the sake of the game itself. You can truly relax and simply click for the purpose of exploration, enjoying the hilarity that ensues each time you try something new.
A new kind of adventure
Chuchel is unique in many different ways. The most obvious of these is that you don’t control Chuchel directly, but rather influence him through the items on the page. Click on an alarm clock for example, and the alarm clock will chime until Chuchel throws something at it.
By controlling the various items in a room, you can influence Chuchel to behave in a certain way. What happens when you click is usually funny, and can result in surprising actions or even a mini-game. The game follows the quest of Chuchel, a cute little ball of black fluff that desperately wants to eat a cherry. Every time he gets close to acquiring his precious cherry however, something happens to knock it away from him. This could be a huge hand, a bowl full of gelatin, or an angry robot, but the cherry is nonetheless out of reach again. You can help Chuchel in his goal, and laugh at the slapstick style humor as poor Chuchel works to get his cherry.
The goal of Chuchel is to simply have fun, enjoy the little animations, and relax as you explore the puzzles. Some of these puzzles involve clicking on the items in a certain order, or other mild puzzles like these. Although most of them are easy to solve, if you do get stuck, there’s an option to click for hints so you never miss an animation. The whole goal of the game is to be simple, light entertainment, and they go out of their way to make sure this happens.
A hilarious game
There’s not much to dislike about Chuchel. The plot boils down to the fact that Chuchel is not the brightest character, and his arch-enemy is only slightly brighter. The game is full of gags, hilarious animations, and artwork similar to that in Botanicula. Botanicula is about the only game that comes close to the style of this unique and refreshing game. If you’ve ever played it and liked it, Chuchel will be right up your alley.
This game is a great example of what a point-and-click adventure can be. It defies the stereotypes, and reimagines a point-and-click in a whole new way. This is hard to do, but Chuchel manages it while also being funny, silly, and refreshingly unique. If you’ve been looking for a relaxed game that will let you play frustration free, this is it.
