Critic Reviews for Syrup and the Ultimate Sweet
For those with little time on their hands, or who are new to genre, Syrup and the Ultimate Sweet is an ideal visual novel on the Nintendo Switch. Short in length, and cute in style, with memorable characters, it makes it easy to replay to discover new aspects to each character and see all the endings without getting fed up of seeing the same text over and over. The truth of the candy golem's creation is a fine plot twist that puts a different view to the start of the tale when replaying it. The genuine life lessons it teaches, and the resulting personality changes are delightful to read, and provide food for thought alongside all the sweet treats included.
Ratalaika Games have become one of the most prolific publishers for small indie games over the past couple of years, and earlier this year they decided to step further into the visual novel genre. Syrup and the Ultimate Sweet, developed by NomnomNami, is one of their first releases under their new umbrella. For those unfamiliar with the genre, a visual novel isn’t a typical video game, but instead more of an interactive story with a big focus on narrative.
A super-sweet little visual novel with some rather dark humour elements, Syrup and the Ultimate Sweet is a good way to while away an hour or two with a cup of coffee. I’m not sure how the game came under PEGI 3: I don’t want to put spoilers in here, but with the naked candy girl and the whole eating-a-sentient-being thing, the age rating is surprising. On the other hand, it’s cutesy enough that it never feels malicious.
