Kororinpa 2?? No idea why they decided to rename it to the most boring name ever, I understand the next Mario game will also be called "Fat Man Mushroom Collector"

I enjoyed the first Kororinpa and this is pretty much more of the same. Nice balance board levels included this time as well (although seperate to the main game). The graphics are functional but not earth shattering, the music is bad enough to make your ears vomit but overall the game is really playable... It's a nice, slow-paced game that can easily steal several hours of your life if you let it.

For those of us that haven't played either of the Kororinpa games, is this a little like Monkey ball? Or similar to the minigame in Wii Fit with the marbles?

A bit of both, with Marble Madness thrown in for good measure... You tilt the play area to guide your marble around the maze, collecting diamonds and finding the exit. Along the way there's various things to help/hinder you (tubes, fans, cannons, moving platfoms etc etc) and some of the later levels require you to really bend your head as you have to rotate the play area completely around or use the balls momentum to get to inaccessible areas, guiding the marble without flinging it off the level - very frustrating but also pretty addictive.

ugh, they completely screwed up the controls. the first game controlled beautifully, but this .... its like the marbles are glued there and you have to tilt 45 degrees to get them to move.
how could they get this so wrong??!?!

I thought that was just me! That was my problem exactly, the marbles (at least the first ones) feel glued and sticky, until you almost tilt it too far so it falls in a 45-degree angle on the next platform, causing it to gain enormous momentum when you DON'T want it! I hope the marbles with more speed and less friction work better

I'm hating this one too.
I LOVED Kororinpa, but this one just feels like a cheap immitation.
The balls are sticky, the controls are not as intuitive, it's just all bad.
Lucky I haven't finished Kororinpa yet. I'll just pretend this one doesn't exists and continue loving the first one.
