When it comes to strange games that have an interesting theme around a bunch of puzzles, Ribbit! Don’t Forget the Tea is a cute game that sees you packing your bag, so that you totally include your afternoon tea set.
Remember those sort of car movement, parking physical games that you probably had as a child? I feel like we all did those types of puzzles in school, moving the cars along the grid so that you can then slot a car into a designated space? That’s what Ribbit! Don’t Forget the Tea is based on, however, instead of cars you are moving around items connected together inside the bag of a frog.
Items are moved with the frog’s tongue, sliding them back and forth around the grid, so that there is space for you to slot your tea set into the empty placement at the bottom. At first, these puzzles are really easy, with only a few things to move before you are able to fully slot the tea set into where it belongs. Then, quickly, Ribbit! Don’t Forget the Tea suddenly gets challenging, with objects feeling stuck.
There is no counter to tell you how many pieces you moved or no score for getting your frog’s bags packed quickly. Ribbit! Don’t Forget the Tea instead allows you to take on the puzzles at your own pace, not offering any sort of reward for getting things done quickly. There are enough levels to keep yourself busy, taking on more challenging bag placements if you can make it further.
Ribbit! Don’t Forget the Tea is a simple and cute puzzle game, with lots of challenges as you get deeper into your bag. It’s lovely to see that this frog never forgets his favorite tea pot, and always is willing to pack it last.
