Developed under the supervision of Puyo Puyo creator Masamitsu Niitani, Octomania has players rotating squares to match up octopi of the same color and features two-person online multiplayer via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. The game employs a hyper-saccharine visual style to weave the epic tale of a magician who must rid the land of the excess octopi created by a wayward spell.
