Poor man, he just wants to eat a cherry.

Review from Steam

So close and yet so far...
Right off the bat, I fell for Chuchel's bizarre charm. I'm just a sucker for good slapstick comedy, with nonsensical and sometimes downright weird events unfolding right before me.
The star of Chuchel is a small zany little orange dust bunny, aptly named Chuchel. Loud, brash, short-tempered and aggressive, he also has that lovable idiot personality that, honestly, made it hard to root against him. The whole shebangabang starts after Chuchel's palatable cherry gets stolen by a almighty hand in the sky. While giving chase, another admirer tosses his hat into the ring - Kekel, a small puffy thing, resolute on defeating Chuchel for the cherry's stem.
While Chuchel is a point-and-click game, it doesn't quite fit the standards set by the genre. It does its own thing and superbly succeeds in doing so. The gameplay, like the game's logic, is all over the place. One moment you are clicking on objects for Chuchel to perform a task. But then you find yourself at the helm, controlling a giant fighting robot, battling Kekel over that sumptuous cherry. You simply never know what to expect from the next level. But, one thing is guaranteed, none of it will make any sense. So don't question the logic, as it's nonexistent.
Each level plays out like a comedy skit, reminiscent of cartoons from my youth like Tom and Jerry or Ed, Edd & Eddy, where the main characters sustain body deforming injuries with lots of accompanying whacky sound effects. There is also even a splash of Monthy Python, given how unpredictable each skit is. For me, Chuchel's charm comes from it not penalizing you for a "wrong" choice; Every choice felt like the correct one. It would defeat the game's intent of making you laugh otherwise. To progress, you do need to create a perfect skit, either by selecting or doing an appropriate task that helps Chuchel rescue his cherry. However, the difficulty matches the logic of this game, so don't fret.
I also adore the art style. Every inhabitant of Chuchel is colourful, majestic, unique and has a face only a mother could love. They are usually inspired by some real-life creatures or objects, while the artists also took ample liberty with their designs. The backdrops for each level are devoid of life, with them being nothing more than just empty space or a cloud or two at times. In the wise words of god Howard - "It just works". Their purpose is to highlight the objects and characters on screen, coated with every colour under the rainbow, keeping your eyes fixed onto these wacky creatures the design team from Amanita Design created.
The game employs random gibberish and using body movements to convey what is happening on screen. Accompanying it are comical sound effects and excellent animation, all of it gelling perfectly and effortlessly to tell the story and show all of Chuchel's emotional states and "thoughts". The soundtrack is also sublime, with its upbeat tone never failing to put a smile on my face and cementing a chill and relaxing vibe from start to finish.
In a nutshell, Chuchel is a conglomerate of nonsensical slapstick comedy skits that aims to make you laugh for 2 hours and help you relax after another rough day. There was never a dull moment, and I loved every second I spent with Chuchel on his crusade to recover his one true love.

Gameplay
As soon as the game begins, you are introduced to Chuchel and need to wake him up by interacting with the surrounding objects and creatures. Since there isn’t a cutscene yet, it’s easy to assume that you need to pay attention to details or look for clues to pass the level, which is engaging at first. However, the further you progress, the more you realize how annoying the unavoidable cutscenes are, only for the sake of storytelling, not providing any suggestion for the puzzles. There’s already a question mark hint at the top left corner of the screen to help you at any time if you get stuck, so you can go away, come back later and still finish the level without any trouble if you don't watch the cutscenes. This completely annihilates the engaging element when it comes to solving the puzzles, reducing them to clicking things to see what happens until you do it in the right order (based on the hint) and progress to the next level. At least, most scenes are shorter than 30 seconds, so they aren’t too dragging, and there are some amusing interaction in those instances to make it up.
Unexpectedly, there are some minigames inspired by Pac-Man, Tetris, Flappy Bird, and Shoot'em-ups that are far more entertaining than the main level.
Is this game worth it?
Yes, if you know what to expect... or expect nothing at all. Sincerely, I think this is the kind of game that neither puts a rich story forward nor offers in-depth puzzles. You'll find joy in just watching things take place on the screen like an interactive movie rather than solving puzzles. The animations and character designs are wacky, not meant to be taken seriously. There are instances where I laughed by looking at the characters and how they interact with each other out of the blue. This game is a gift I received after having such an awful day. I didn't play it right away, but I wish I did, as it would've lifted my mood, greatly.

CHUCHEL will definitely bring you some form of entertainment if you play it blindly. It's a relaxing one-time experience, especially after a day of hard work since it can be finished in one sitting. This is one of the few games I would save for my children in the future as an introduction to puzzle games in general thanks to its colorful art style and kid-friendly humor.

Review from Steam

Chuchel is an infinitely charming and hilarious point & click experience for all ages.
Wonderful music. Lovable characters. Quirky sound effects. What's not to love about this game?
All the puzzles are fairly simple; It's just a matter of clicking on the right stuff in the correct order. To unlock all of the achievements you may need a little help.
It's a bit short but well-worth it in my opinion. You will be laughing out loud and grooving to the tunes the whole way through, I promise.
I highly recommend this game to everyone of all ages. Along with the rest of the Amanita Design catalog.
