About time eh? April is already 3 days old, so I’d better get this Game of the Month March out there. So, what did I play? Quite a lot this past month.
First of all, my game for this month of March: Without a doubt, I can say it’s Bravely Second: End Layer. I’m playing the game on my European 3DS, but American gamers can already access the demo too, and will have the full game in two weeks time. I’m 20 hours in, plus I played the demo for 9 hours, so that’s quite a lot with all other games going on. I like the story, love the characters and with good gameplay and gorgeous visuals, where could I go wrong? You will find a review for the game next week! Who is playing this game too? I could still use some ablink characters!
On the Vita my game of the Month February, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, saw some more action before I picked up Bravely Second. You can expect a review for it shortly.
I played quite a bit on my iPad: first there was Disney Magic Kingdoms. In this game, you are able to help Mickey and friends rebuild the Magic Kingdom after it’s been cursed by the evil witch. You start off with a small portion of the attraction park, by putting a ferris wheel and Mickey’s house near the entrance. Kids will visit your ferris wheel, and you’ll be able to make them happy. Happy is good: it gives you some income and happiness. Soon, you are able to invite Goofy over to join you in the park and entertain the guests. Most time in the game will be spent giving the Disney and Pixar characters you unlock to perform various tasks. This will produce in-game currency called magic (of course), earn experience points and produce items that help you add more characters to the park or level up the ones you already have. Actions can range from a minute to hours to complete, so this is a nice exercise in time management: they can only do one action at a time, so you have to choose wisely. Now, I’m a fan of the attraction parks, and of time management games, but somehow the game just doesn’t do it for me. Maybe it’s because we already have so many of these city builder management games on mobile?
The second game on the iPad that caught my eye was Love you to Bits, and you will find the review here. Nice little time waister, sweet story and puzzles that get your attention purely by their creativity.
The third game on iPhone/iPad of course was MiiTomo, as I’m sure you are all aware of by now. I haven’t spent much time in the game, but I do like what I’ve seen so far. I’m pleased to see that the game is doing so well in the charts, it seems that even non-Nintendo fans are finding it. My only complaint about the game is that it can potentially take up oodles of your time…and time already is precious as it is!
