Exquisitely Lush Tengami Is Our iOS Game Of The Week [Editor’s Pick]


We’ve been excited about Tengami ever since we saw it at a gaming conference a couple of years back. The long development time has paid off for developer Nyamyam, as Tengami is by far one of the best games of its type we’ve seen on any platform.

It came out for iOS just this week, and we’ve lost ourselves (and our sense of time) playing through the lushly illustrated pop-up book. The story is told without dialogue, tasking us with moving from one beautiful environment to the next, solving puzzles along the way to keep the journey going.

Here’s a video of some of our play through of the game.

While Tengami comes in at a premium price, there will be no in-app purchases or micro-transactions, giving you an entire experience from the minute you turn that first page.

Tengami is available in the App Store now as a Universal app for $4.99.

    I’m loving this game; favorite since The Room (and The Room 2). I believe I’m about 1/2 of the way through and I’ve found the puzzles tough but fair … and tougher than The Room. I would rate this as a “must buy” for anyone who likes a challenging puzzle game.
