IGN awarded the game a score of 8.5 of 10 and gave it an Editor's Choice award.[2] In a separate article, IGN stated "With its cute graphics and charming story, your time with the kappa will certainly be memorable."[1] They further awarded it as "Game of the Month: June 2010" for the DSiWare category, saying it "is deep, quirky, challenging to just the right degree and does something new with the touch screen."[3]
