This was actually my free game that I received as part of Nintendo’s too many games promotion, which meant that if you purchased 3 titles from a selection of 8 before the end of June, you could choose another one of the 8 free. The reason I didn’t buy this, is because I knew how much I would struggle to complete levels! It’s an excellent platformer, and lots of fun, until you fall or mis jump on the same part of a level for the 50th time. It’s a real old school platformer that’s been bought up to date with a bright, smooth graphical presentation, and the added 3D element…these features however, don’t make me any better at the game.
Animal Crossing New Leaf
Confession time…I still play Animal Crossing Wild World, 7 years after it’s release. There’s just something addictively enduring about these games. It’s hard to describe the AC games to someone, I always want to say they are like a fun version of the Sims, but they are so much more than that, and to me at least, much more appealing. Basically, you play as a human living in a town full of animal characters, each with their own interests and differing personalities, and you choose how to spend your time, fishing, digging for fossils, taking trips to a tropical island and bug catching all earn you currency to upgrade and improve both your house, and your town. There are events all year round, mini games, and the villagers also give you tasks to do. When I write it down, it seems much less appealing than it is, so I highly recommend you give it a try for yourself. I’m currently loving visiting other gaming buddies’ towns, and seeing what’s for sale in their shops. (Shop content changes daily, and varies from player to player.)
