Critic Reviews for Aka

In Aka, you get to be a cute hero in a pretty landscape, taking naps and strolling through trees. So dreamy! It's just a shame the game has launched with this many bugs. The frequent stalling of progression and basic tasks is a little wearisome and players need a little more paw-holding to grasp the objectives. At this stage we'd recommend waiting for a few more patches, then playing the game in all its fluffy glory. That way, you get to soak up a red panda's life of luxury. Who wouldn't want that?

Overall, Aka is a solid attempt at the life sims genre, with it truly hitting the mark of being casual and cozy rather than being like the others within the same genre that are more-so grindy time and resource management games.

Aka is a thrilling yet simple game that will have you asking yourself about the choices you have made in life, and if they may have impacted others without you realizing it. Though there isn't a great deal of challenging content, it is refreshing and just overall a lot of fun.

Despite being eye-catching with its amazing art direction, Aka doesn't manage to captivate the player and it feels more like a mix of not-deep-enough gameplay mechanics.

Aka is an easy game to be charmed by, with an endearing world and uplifting messages. However, the routine crafting systems and frequent minor bugs lead to an experience that feels more like work than play.

Unfortunately, playing the game offers too little of an incentive for how challenging it is to control your red panda friend. While it may be true that a good deed is its own reward, such a proverb doesn't lend itself well to the medium of video games. There are some worthwhile moments to be had in this world, but they're just too few and far between.

Aka is a game with a generally sound concept and a laudable goal of a relaxed life sim, but quite a few issues come up along the way.
