Critic Reviews for Save me Mr Tako: Tasukete Tako-San
Save me Mr Tako successfully apes a period of gaming history, but I just wish it had shed a few of the more tiresome tropes from that time. If you're part of the niche audience that this is catering to, you'll find a fun romp down what feels like memory lane. For everyone else, I'd proceed with caution.
Save me Mr. Tako! is a contemporary tribute to the Game Boy made with today's resources and with all the advantages that implies. That being said, and for all its qualities, its controls generate unnecessary frustration, the game's difficulty feels out of place and the levels need more inspiration but there is no doubt Save me Mr. Tako! has a character of its own for those willing to explore it.

Under its good looks as a true Game Boy hommage, Save me Mr Tako only delivers the bare minimum : its uninspired level design sometimes try to hide a story which you should not give too much attention to. Save me Mr Tako is simply way too classical to face the strong opponents it has to face.

Save Me Mr. Tako is a lovingly crafted throwback to the days of the Game Boy. While we found some rough spots with the lack of side quest tracking and ropey collision detection, they weren't enough to take away from our overall enjoyment of the game. Tako is a lovable character in a quality platformer that would have been right at home on the system it pays homage to. If you love the Game Boy - flaws and all - then you'll absolutely adore this game.
