Angry Birds Seasons Cherry Blossom

Today, I played "Angry Birds Seasons - Cherry Blossom". It was very interesting! I enjoyed it!

 This is Angry Birds's first Japanese theme. Japanese custom called "Hanami" is designed.

 When overseas games takes in Japan in a design, it is usually strange and funny. Unfortunately, as for them, China, Korea and Japan were mixed and confused.

However, Angry Birds Seasons Cherry Blossom is natural. In an initial design of Rovio, there were the bird which dressed a Chonmage, the bird which did Kabuki make-up, a bird in judo wear, the bird which wore a protective gear of the kendo, the bird dressed in clothes of the ninja. However, there are not them in a game.
There were Mt. Fuji, Torii, cherry blossom, Norimaki(Kind of the sushi), Rice ball(Onigiri), Rice cake(Dango), Teapot(kyuusu) and wooden bowl(Owan) in a game. And Pigs wear a twisted Hachimaki.

The game is difficult, and it is hard to get three star. There are three bonus stages.

Japanese geolocation game company Colopl develops various game application

Colopl is representative Japanese geolocation game company for futurephone. However, they develop the various game application for smartphones. Besides, they are 3D. This is one of them "Rhythm coin!".

 A bear of 2D(in the geolocation game)  becomes 3D and dances. Cute!

"Rhythm coin!" is simple coin pusher game. It is full 3DCG and physical operation is also included.

This is different from the geolocation game that they usually run. It seems that they are putting not only a geolocation game but all games into the view.
