Touka is a passive puzzle video game developed and published by Nekogames as a browser game in 2011. It is the third and final game in the Flower series. The game was programmed in Flash.

The game consists of 16 levels. In each level, gray flowers are spinning around the screen, and your goal is to hover your mouse cursor over all the flowers to turn them white. The faster you do this, the more points you score. In almost every level, this is entirely straight forward and will only take a few seconds. Only a couple levels require any thought at all.

Personal

After replaying Ouka to make a page for it on this site, I decided to try the other games in the series. This was the second game I played. I finished it after about a minute on 2023-11-14. The game is free.

— This section contains spoilers! —

Good

  • The graphic design and particle effects are very polished.
  • The sound effects give it a nice ethereal quality.
  • The hints offer interesting visuals as well which don't completely solve the puzzle, but make them much easier.

Bad

  • The flowers, when scaled up, look ugly. Larger images should have been used.
  • I would have liked some atmospheric music playing in the background.
  • Trying to get a higher score after you've beaten all the levels is annoying because the game drops you to the ending screen forcing you to have to click back to the menu.

Ugly

  • Nearly all of the "puzzles" are effectively the same and require very little thought or effort.
  • The game is far too short, I beat it in about a minute, and didn't really enjoy my time doing so.
  • The version number of 0.9 implies that the game wasn't quite finished, and it shows.
