Doctor Kawashima’s Devilish Brain Training Preview

Why am I doing a preview of a game that was released five years ago? Because it’s happened again. Nintendo release a game in Japan, and then decide to let everyone else play it. But 5 years, that’s just ridiculous! Why have I played the demo? I like puzzles and stuff but the worry with this is that it will feel outdated and not up to the the high standards it needs to be at.

The first thing that I notice is how the lip-sync is out of time and barely resembles the words that are being said. Another problem is that it takes Kawashima 10 minutes to explain the rules of one game before you even play it. The game (Devilish Calculations) requires you to answer the questions that are asked before the question you are at, and is more about memory than the actual problem solving.

Nintendo will have to convince me (among other people) that this is worth buying.

Magikarp Jump App Review

Magikarp is known for being totally pathetic and extremely weak in battle, but Nintendo’s latest app put Magikarp in the limelight. Magikarp Jump explores Magikarp’s only good quality, it’s jumping skills, and challenges players to take on leauges, where two trainers will face off to see whose Magikarp can jump the highest.

On the surface Magikarp Jump seems to be a simple game, but as you delve deeper you find a certain complexity to the app. The leauges aren’t just a matter of who can tap the screen the most times, instead it is a matter of manually training your Magikarp until you think it is good enough to take on the leauge. As you progress in the game you will be able to raise your Magikarp further and fish up rarer patterns, before unlocking more methods to train, feed and level up your Magikarp.

The first part of game is pretty enjoyable, but you will soon get tired of having to constantly grind  to level up; eventually it just gets boring.73%
