While the gameplay is centered around the seemingly monotonous task of fulfilling villager requests from stage to stage, Bob Help Them is an oddly laidback game that is an enjoyable experience, albeit a pretty short one.

Bob Help Them! is a little game, with a lot of potential. I really liked the concept and feel of the game, it just didn't have enough going on to keep me interested and it felt very repetitive.

Bob Help Them is essentially a simpler, single-player equivalent to Overcooked. The specific tasks one must do are extremely simple, but a harsh time limit creates an engaging challenge that requires genuine concentration and strategy. This title could really use a bit more polish and refinement when it comes to visuals, controls, and quality-of-life features, but those looking for a fun and frantic strategy puzzler will still have a good time with it nonetheless.

Bob Help Them may not have much lasting appeal but helping folks as efficiently and thoroughly as possible is certainly a fun challenge.
