Incredibly charming, Anika’s Odyssey took me by surprise.  With most point and click adventures, I typically find myself enjoying, either, the comedic value of the game OR its narrative.  This game delivers on both.  As you play, it becomes obvious that there is no dialogue in the game, only music and sound effects. These elements, coupled with the game’s gorgeous artwork, subtlely nudge the player forward.  You will invariably meet some truly adorable characters along your journey, and, when you do, make special note of Anika’s facial expressions -- they are amazing.  

Your first task seems benign enough.  As soon as you (Anika) walk out of your house, a virtual hand tosses you a bucket and points you toward a well pump. Anika carefully places her beloved bunny on a tree stump and waits for your direction.  Clicking on the pump, triggers Anika toward the pump.  As you (Anika) approach the pump, an eagle swoops down to steal the bunny and soars into the unknown.  Thus began my Anika adventure.  I soon realized, however, that things in the Land of Taniwha weren’t at all what they seemed.

There was something about the start of this game, that made me think it was going to be a straight-forward adventure quest; where I would guide Anika through the forest in search of her stuffed bunny.  Although one does do that, there is a bit more to this game.  The forest, you see, is not like your typical forest.  It is an unmistakable magical realm with mushroom houses and invisible creatures. Most of these creatures appear impish and harmless at first blush, but I soon discovered that they were out to thwart my attempts to help Anika find her bunny.

Anika’s Odyssey is sweet and entertaining and was I delighted to discover it
