Importers take note Irozuki Tingle no Koi no Balloon Trip (Color Changing Tingle’s Balloon Trip of Love) is a text heavy adventure game.
A demo appeared on Japan’s Nintendo Channel and it plays like a point and click adventure game. Players guide Tingle, who is sucked into a Wizard of Oz-like world by tapping on objects. You can’t freely move Tingle in the demo, which was a little awkward. You can only approach key objects like people and the clock, as seen in the screenshot.
If you interact with a person you can select talk or search. Some conversations have multiple options, like picking “dance party” makes an old lady tell Tingle he may be able to discover princesses there.
Tingle can grab items like a red marble and a hammer, which can be used to smash a ceramic mushroom hiding precious rupees. More rupees can be found by rustling through grass, but there wasn’t too much to do in the demo.
I didn’t even get to meet the short scarecrow, lion, and tin woman that accompany Tingle on his girlfriend finding adventure.
