Play OverviewPlay Overview

Kami, and Kami 2 (2014) are origami-themed puzzle games where you aim to fill the screen with the same coloured paper. You play by a location to unfold paper of that colour that then spreads until it hits another colour.

Play involves assessing the level to work out how to make it the same colour in a limited number of taps. Once you have a plan you tap on one of the colours to spread the colour to any connected areas. The challenge is working out the right sequence of taps to complete the level in as few as possible.

As you progress it becomes clear you have to be really careful and clever with the order and location of your taps. The shapes and patterns you work with become complex and interwoven. You can choose to work through the Journey and tackle puzzles one by one. Or there's a Daily Puzzle or Challenge mode. You can even make and share your own levels with the Build mode.

The result is a game that is both approachable and challenging. There's a real puzzle at the heart of the experience, but it's wrapped up in beautiful origami so it often feels like you are chilling out rather than taxing your brain.
