Hoshi Saga 3 has just launched over at Yoshio Ishii's site, Nekogames. If you're unfamiliar with the Hoshi Saga series, then you're in for a treat as there are now several full games for you to experience. For the uninitiated, Hoshi Saga is a simple game of discovery. One part point-and-click and one part puzzle game, the objective in each stage is to find the star. How you go about doing that is different for every level. The task is up to you to figure out how.
Play the entire Hoshi Saga Series:
In this edition, there are 20 stages to explore freely as you wish, with another 16 stages that must be unlocked by completing rows and columns of stages that appear on the stage select menu. The menu also shows a stage's relative difficulty represented by a number of highlighted stars (out of 5).
Games of discovery have the potential to spark the imagination and exercise parts of the brain that are seldom touched. These are the most refreshing of experiences, and the Hoshi Saga series succeeds in taking you places you've never been before.
