Wattam is a delight to play. From the cute aesthetic, to the amazing soundtrack, there is much to enjoy here.
At times it feels like playing around with a chemistry set. Except it can only produce fun and harmless explosions.
If you have even a sliver of child-like wonder left in your heart then playing Wattam is a must.
Wattam is a rare wonder of a game, full of hope, charm, and poop. But it's also one of the kindest games to come out all year.
A joy to play through and through and the perfect antidote to today's climate.

Wattam isn’t without its flaws; in particular, the more characters you gather, the harder it is to quickly switch between them. But even when your journey’s done, there’s more than enough here to draw you back in, whether you’re tackling the game in co-op mode, hunting for those few elusive characters you’ve missed or just diving into this daft and wonderfully charming world.
Spend a few hours winding down with its carefree sandbox or just listen to the ever catchy folksy music, and it's just the antidote you need after a bad day, a bad year, or hell, a bad decade.
While Wattam can be a little awkward, thanks to replacing its camera stick with the simple rotation controls on the shoulder buttons, and easily beaten in three hours, it's a game that makes a strong statement that sticks in the mind.
As a game, Wattam is a scatterbrained assembly of goofball logic and cumbersome mechanics. As an experience, it's an earnest expression of love, affinity, and forgiveness shared by all of its moving pieces. The product is a game that elicits joy without the videogame-y demand for precooked gratification. Wattam feels like a birthday party where all of your friends actually show up.
