The Legend of Kusakari may depart from an extremely unlikely premise but it's just simple and fun enough to provide a worthy experience for several hours. While taking it beyond its purpose will make the game feel repetitive, its overall sense of humour, good control system and hectic pace will not make anyone regret its purchase.

You may have noticed the intentional similarities to a certain, popular Nintendo franchise in the game's logo and appearance, which is likely to divide opinion among many. Whether this is a positive or a negative thing is unimportant, in the end, because The Legend of Kusakari can stand proudly in its own right as a highly enjoyable, nicely polished puzzle adventure. Besides, who doesn't find enjoyment in hacking down every last bit of grass in Hyrule anyway?Addictive gameplay, along with great humour and charming character make The Legend of Kusakari a very pleasant experience, and when the only downside is a want for more story and more chapters to play through, you know you're onto a winner.
The Legend of Kusakari is flawed from the outset. While the idea of a grass-cutting simulator makes for a funny one-liner, it's near impossible to create an engaging experience from such a simplistic concept, and it quickly falls into the trap of mundanity. It may ooze charm, and the love poured into it is apparent, but it's much more difficult to enjoy in practice than in theory.
