Tampopo is a delicate dandelion seed trying to find its way to the ground. On its journey it must avoid nasty branches and dangerous insects who will attempt to thwart your mission. Use swiping gestures to control the wind and direct Tampopo to safety.

Game Impressions

Nice game. Very good controls and physics. Would like to see more varied levels and different game modes, but what's here is very solid.

This is a fun, cute game.

It's not as deep or complex as others but it's great for when you have a few minutes on the bus and just want something fun to play. It's got a pretty nice control system and the game play is pretty balanced.

I'm giving it a high rating because it does well in what it sets out to do: give a few minutes of fun.
