Birthdays the Beginning is about as exciting as watching paint dry – even if you get to pick the colors.

Despite the many obvious flaws there’s a mesmerising quality to the game’s artificial worlds, as the gameplay itself creates a surprisingly palatable form of edutainment.

Birthdays the Beginning is cute and nostalgic but there’s not much depth.
