My Gaming Week in Review (9/11- 9/17)!

I only had time for a few games this week, but I did squeeze some gaming in here and there! 🙂

Console

No console gaming this week. 😦

Handheld

Nintendo DS

I dug through my backlog and played a very bizarre game called 101 in 1 Explosive Megamix and um… yeah. I was going to write up a First Impressions post about it, so stay tuned for that in the next couple days. In the meantime, here’s the lovely main menu:

Mobile

iPhone

I played a little bit of the game 10000000 this week. If you’ve never heard of it before, the premise is this: you are stuck in a castle, and you have to upgrade your castle to become free. If you earn 10,000,000 points, you are free! You earn points by matching tiles on the bottom screen according to what is going on on the top screen. For instance, if you are standing in front of an enemy, you might match swords to defeat him. If you are standing in front of a treasure chest, match keys to unlock the chests. The top screen is constantly scrolling, so if the left side touches your character, it’s game over.

It’s an interesting premise for sure, and the game was fun when I started playing it. However, I erroneously thought that your score was cumulative throughout your adventure, and eventually you would earn the correct number of points to be set free. That is not the case, though, and suddenly the thought of earning 10 million points seems insane. I felt that after a couple rounds and a few objectives complete, I still wasn’t really getting anywhere. The game has kind of lost its appeal to me, and I’m not sure I’ll play it anymore.

I didn’t have much time to play Pokémon GO this week, though I did do the update so I could have a buddy! Of course, my first buddy of choice was Squirtle. Look how adorable it looks standing beside me! I also love how its little head is shown next to your face on the map. 🙂

I did evolve a couple Pokémon this week. I evolved my Caterpie into a Metapod…

my Pidgeotto into a Pidgeot…

and my Weedle into a Kakuna!

I also reached Level 8 this week.

Lastly, I played a bit more Crossy Road. I unlocked Unlucky Cat…

Unexpected Shrew (which has the most ADORABLE board!)…

and Elf, which got me in the mood for the holiday season!

That’s it for my gaming adventures this week. See ya!
