Nice change, but...
on 22 January 2010
Well, the game is odd to start with, but soon you get used to and the game provide good tutorials to help you through.
Why 4 stars, because is to repetitive at some point, and bonuses hardly to reach, I do not see a child having patience to do what it has to be done to reach and actually complete the game.
For me is well worth it because I do not use the stylus, is funny, the music is brilliant and both monkeys makes me smile.
This is an update...
I tried to change the stars but Amazon did not let me, so...
All of you who give this game 5 or 4 stars I wonder why, have you at list completed 48%? I am sure you have not... I agree with some of the positive points of this game like the music and graphics, but none of you pointed out the real frustration with this game. Thats why I rated 3 stars, but for the fun read below.
Mario Bross has parts were is frustrating but none the less it can be finished, funny and enjoyable, but this one is a disaster after the 3th world conquered. The magic power by collecting the gems to be indestructible last only few seconds and the control of it is poorly, at Planet Plantaen in order to defeat the boss you need all the magic force which you cannot keep as the levels to rich at that point are to demanding, and the player will use the magic power, meaning that you will never defeat the King K at that level.
All of you are happy with the timing you put into playing the game, but in reality is not quality fun, you keep going back to Forest Ruins, or God knows which shortcut you have found to get more gems and bananas hoping it will last to defeat the boss in Planet Plantaen, and this statement is as IF you have reached so far. By the Fiery Vulcano the game is becoming highly frustrating and I am sure you have not collected in that area all the coins and letters as I did after at list 70 attempts. By the way, why do we collect coins if you cannot buy anything in the game to help with the difficulty of it?
I wish people would learn to give a fair review of a game, not just after having the game for a day or so!
If you want to spend your time going back all the time to collect gems instead of moving forward is up to you, but let the people know the truth about this game, and if you indeed defeated the boss on Planet Plantaen and have a clue how can be done please let me know... The game designers reckon is for 3+ but I am 41 determined to win the game IF I can, can I?
I rated two stars for the fun and not below O simply because it has valuable moments where I could smile, and there is space for improvement if they do another sequel of this game. The game designers started to forget why we spent so much money in the first place, to have fun. I do agree with challenge games, but not at the point that you want to give up playing (as I did 10 years ago), that is killing the child within us at what ever age.
I finished the game finally, and I have to admit that was rewarding. Now I realize that I keep going back for only one coint which I cannot find at all, is located in Fiery Vulcano, if anyone knows where is the DK coin please let me know.
You don't need all the gems to win the battle in Planet Plantaen, one gem is enough, but you need Didi, thats the secret and stay in the middle where the belly button is.
Planet Plantaen is the last boss and the game ends there, you unlock mini games which are not really funny, actually are unachievable, and I become frustrated again.
Now at this point I have to admit that the game is brilliant as I mentioned many times, but very frustrating. If you have time to keep playing you will master all the movement and even the the last boss is easy to be killed, even without gems.
Now I am waiting for the next sequel of this mad game.
