Slime Rancher (Slimy Yet Satisfying)

So back in october I downloaded the game Slime Rancher for the PS4 and I dont regret it at all. Its such a unique game. Its kinda like a farming game and a monster collecting game had a baby. The story goes that you are a girl who is sick of her everyday life and moves far away to get away from it all and starts a ranch to survive. Thats all the story they give you. But your gonna have fun so the story isnt that important.

GAMEPLAY: In this game there are creatures that roam the land. These creatures are slime. there are many different slime. Your job as a Slime Rancher is to collect slime using your Vac-Gun. Once you do that you need to feed them. Feed them their favorite food and they poop or produce plort. To make money you exchange plort for cash. Lastly, use your cash to upgrade your ranch and unlock more areas. You can even fuse different slimes together to produce more plort.

GRAPHICS and DIFFICULTY: The graphics in this game are great. 3D and cartoony similar to the graphics of the legend of zelda wind waker. This game is really easy and chill to play. Except for when you accidently make a tarr. Tarr are creatures you dont want in your ranch. They eat slime and can multiply quickly. When you start a new game it will ask you if you want the ability to create tarr. Personally I said yes to have that extra challenge.

This is a really cool game. I would recommend this game hands down. Well its on to the next...

What I'm Playin: Mobile Games Part 2: Pokemon Quest

Hey welcome to part 2 of my What I'm Playin Mobile Games Blog. Today I will be reviewing the mobile game Pokemon Quest.

Pokemon Quest is a game where you set your pokemon out into the wild to battle wave after wave of pokemon in real time. Then with the berries that enemy pokemon drop you cook food that will attract pokemon to your base. Once that is done all you need to do is tap on the wild pokemon and there you have it. You have successfully recruited pokemon to your team.

The gameplay is simple. When your pokemon are out there battling they move on their own but you get to decide when they attack and what move they use. Although i would have liked to be in control of the pokemon's movement its not a deal breaker.

The graphics are interesting. Both the pokemon and the environments have a minecraft look to it.

Pokemon Quest is a mobile game worth checking out. its a fun unique pokemon game that is free to play.Thats right. You can play through the entire game without the need of purchasing anything.

Stay tuned to part 3 of What I'm Playin to check out what im playin.

What I'm Playin: Mobile Games Part 1: Mekorama

Hey so I thought it would be a fun idea to talk about the games ive been playing on my phone. The first one i'll be talking about/reviewing is going to be Mekorama.

Mekorama is a puzzle game where you try to get your little person from point A to point B. Sounds simple right? Well if you take into account moving blocks and red people that stand in your way its not so simple. So far I am loving this game. There are 50 levels to tackle and each one is challenging in its own way. Another thing to point out is that this game is playable offline. Plus there is the option to make your own level. Lastly the look of this game is cool. it has a block like minecraft look to it.

I would definitely recommend this game (which can be downloaded from the Google Play Store for free). Keep an eye out for Part 2 of this blog post where i will be reviewing another mobile game I've been playing.

Well its on to the next...

Spiderman Into The Spiderverse Review

So I just watched Spiderman Into The Spiderverse and it was awesome. Im gonna break it down to visuals and story for this review.

the visuals in this movie were great. it was similar to watching a comic book come alive. some scenes used speech bubbles while other scenes used story panels. it reminded me of the game ultimate spiderman for the ps2. although they used this technique only a few times it was enough to make the movie enjoyable.

the story was also great. kingpin has created an interdemensional machine and has successfully killed spiderman. using this machine has accidentaly transported different versions of spiderman to his world. it is up to miles morales (the newly bitten spiderman) and the other spideys to destroy the machine.

This was a really great movie and i thoroughly enjoyed it.

Well its on to the next...

Professor Layton

When it comes to video games it doesnt matter if its old or new. If its a good game its a good game. Thats my motto.

Professor Layton isnt a new game series but I recently beat Professor Layton and the diabolical box for the DS and it was a GOOD game. I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you dont know about Professor Layton games its simple enough to understand. you play as a detective/archaeologist (Layton) who solves mysteries. The gameplay revolves around puzzles and brain teasers that you need to solve that are based on the mystery. I was surprised at the number of puzzles the games give you to solve. Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box gives you a total of 138 puzzles to solve through out the story. and on top of that the game gives you 3 mini games. 

An insane amount of puzzles plus 3 mini games is the basic format for all of the games in the series. thats what drew me into getting a professor layton game, even if it was a DS game. An old but great game.

And so as always its on to the next...
