Fluffy Milo (PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, X/S, PC)

Help Milo the cat push cartons of milk into his dishes in Fluffy Milo, a block pushing puzzle game.  Well you push the whole carton into the dish without pouring it out, so not sure what good that does, but it’s just a game.  If this premise sounds really familiar, it’s probably because I reviewed a game just like it about half a year ago called Sissa’s Path.  Fluffy Milo is available on all current game consoles and PC, but reviewed on PS4 here.  There’s a name for these types of games in Japan called Sokaban, and it reminds me of titles like Boxxle, Chip’s Challenge, or Adventures of Lolo.

In each level you can move Milo (who is now cube shaped) in four directions.  You can push cartons if there isn’t a wall or another one in the way.  Your goal is to get each of the milk cartons to certain spots on the floor that look like pet dishes.  When you do, you’ll pass the level.  There are 60 levels split up into four sections representing the four seasons.  You can press the circle button to undo your last three moves.  The first half of the game starts out super easy.  I was able to do them in fifteen minutes.  The ‘fall’ levels start to get a little challenging, and the ‘winter’ levels are super tough.

I guess this could be a sequel to Sissa’s Path, since there are a few improvements.  The graphics are a little better, since you actually have backgrounds this time representing a nature scene based on the four seasons.  Although the grass in the fall sections is very close in color to the brown floors you can move on, so it’s kind of hard to tell where you can go sometimes.  You can also undo three moves instead of just one, but I still think they could’ve let you do more.  And a hint option would’ve been nice.  But otherwise this is a fairly serviceable block pushing puzzler.

Kid Factor:

Nothing violent or objectionable here.  Reading skill is helpful for the menus, but not necessary just to play.  Younger gamers may need help with the tougher puzzles.  This game could be considered somewhat educational as you use problem solving and thinking skills.  Fluffy Milo is rated E for Everyone.
