Game Review – Doctor Who: Legacy

16 01 2014

 Remember when I said I wasn’t going to have last week? Well, I didn’t. But that didn’t stop me from doing a game review. This one is different than my usual ones, as this is on iPhone and Android devices.

This is Doctor Who: Legacy, an RPG that was released soon after the 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor. The game begins with the 11th Doctor, and companion; Vastra. The two are attacked by Sontarans, who plan on travelling through time to change all the Doctor’s victories into defeats.

You have to play as the Doctor and up to 5 companions, as you go through his adventures, defeat enemies, gain more companions, level up them (And even the Doctor. Sort of), and… well, do Time Lord stuff.

So far, the available Doctors are the 11th (Matt Smith), 10th (David Tennant), 8th (Paul McGann), 7th (Sylvester McCoy), and 6th (Colin Baker). There are, of course, many more companions, like Sarah-Jane Smith, Strax, and the Ponds.

The gameplay is basically like Candy Crush. Only fun. To attack, you have to build up 3+ orbs (That are different colours). Each colour corresponds to the character’s card colour. Like if you have the 11th Doctor equipped (Who has a blue card), build up blue orbs for him to attack.

Example:

11th Doctor – Blue

Sarah-Jane Smith – Yellow

Strax – Red

Porridge – Black

Rory Williams – Green

Yes, I just opened up the game, looked up my team, and added them here. :P There are also pink orbs. Pink counts for health. Which is something you’re going to need quite a lot. Here’s a picture of the game’s screen if you still don’t understand:

The + on the yellow orbs mean that those orbs are more powerful than usual, so Vastra and Amy are going to attack harder. Which, when it comes to the Weeping Angels, is more helpful.

Rating: ****

Good game. I did stop playing it after a while due to a lack of time (Yes, I can’t believe it either, but I do have a life), but recently went back. And I always play it while waiting for something to load! Which is a lot when playing Sims 3: Into the Future…

If you’re a Doctor Who fan, I would totally recommend this game! Even if you’re just a small fan like I am. So go and download it! 100% free! However, if you have a Samsung Galaxy S2, it does drain the battery a bit. But it’s worth it for a bit of fun.

Poll will be up later today. Anyway, cya!

Hints n Tips is 4 Years (And just over 11 days) Old!

15 01 2014

Hey guys! I just remembered that this site is now over 4 years old! This is probably the longest running FF site (That’s still fully operational). I dunno. FMHQ might still hold that title. Is FMHQ still around?

And no, I’m not counting the wiki. There’s a wiki for everything, c’mon. We’ve seen a lot during the past 4 years. The Birthday Bash, the day of the Free to Play, the beginning of the end, the 7 Legends, the end of ToonTown, PotCO and FusionFall itself, the rise and immediate fall of FusionFall Heroes, pages that I said would be updated, but STILL never got round to it, and most recently, the game reviews.

Not necessarily in that order. Here’s to another 4 years! Whether it be fully operational, or just an abandoned junk planet at the edge of Kasterborous. What will this year hold? Most likely only game reviews. And maybe another extension into a ToonTown Rewritten site.

Anyway, cya!

Kids Next Door: Operation V.I.D.E.O.G.A.M.E. Review

9 01 2014

(I couldn’t find the logo on it’s own, okay?)

This week, I’ll be reviewing Operation V.I.D.E.O.G.A.M.E. (Villains In Detention Escape Outpost Growing Amalgamation Mega Enormously), released in 2005 for the PS2, Gamecube and Xbox.

I haven’t played this game in a while, so I can’t remember much of it. That, and I haven’t beaten it yet. :P But it starts with Numbuh 1 testing out a new simulation device. The Toiletnator then arrives and ties up Numbuh 2, 3, 4 and 5, while Nigel thinks the whole thing is part of the simulation. The Sector then find out that some of their worst enemies have escaped and taking their revenge. Or something like that…

You get to play as the operatives of Sector V, and, using cheats, enemies and Numbuh 86. You can also play as bosses in some kind of simulation mode. That is not part of normal gameplay.

The gameplay itself is pretty good. The controls work, though the enemies can be tough. I remember not being able to get past Grandma Stuffum as a kid! But I was a noob back then. I was even scared of a firetrucking Cyber Stinger in FusionFall back when I was 12!

The music and voices are from the show (By voices, I mean the actors. Not clips from the show), and pretty much everything else about the game is just like in the show!

***.5

Pretty good game. Not the best I’ve played, but it was fun. Last time I played it, I told myself to play 1 level a day. I ended up getting to level 3 in that same day. :P So it’s kind of addicting. Not as addicting as FusionFall was, but still very fun.

I’m going to take another break next week, so no vote or review. Voting will resume on next Saturday. Anyway, cya!

Luigi’s Mansion Review

2 01 2014

No one here voted. I am disappointed! Luckily, the Xtremists did. And Luigi’s Mansion won.

Luigi’s Mansion was released in 2001, one day before the Nintendo Gamecube, the game’s console, was. Which caused a problem for 24 hours. More history about this game is that it almost wasn’t made. It was shown at E3, along with Super Mario 128, to show the Gamecube’s graphical capabilities.

When it was decided to be made, it was originally going to have a 3D option, however, the 3D add-on for the Gamecube was more expensive than the console itself, so both were scrapped.

The story of the game is that Mario’s brother, Luigi, won a mansion in a contest. Which he never entered. He told Mario about it, and the two agreed to meet at the mansion in the Boo Woods. However, by the time Luigi got there, Mario went missing. Again. But we gamers don’t talk about that game for the SNES, so back to LM.

In the mansion, Luigi meets this crazy scientist called Prof. E. Gadd, who gave him the Poltergust 3000. Luigi then sets out to suck out all the ghosts in the haunted mansion and save his brother from King Boo!

Gameplay

Been a while since I put these into sections. Anyways, the gameplay is quite simple and… I wouldn’t say “fun”, but it’s far from boring. Unlike Mario games, you don’t jump around and run everywhere. But this isn’t a Mario game, it’s a Luigi game! So instead, you walk around the mansion in a 3D side-scrolling mode.

Controls

A – Interact

C Stick – Change direction of vacuum or flashlight

B – Hold to keep flashlight off

Control Stick – Guess what. Move.

L – Expel element

R – Vacuum stuff

X – Search Mode

Y – Map

Z – Items

Conclusion

****

Pretty good game. Not the best, but it’s miles away from being the worst. It may be short (I managed to beat it in under 24 hours), but it’s long enough to keep you entertained. And to keep you from playing it all in one go.

I would recommend this game. And if you can get it, do! And if you can play it, too. Otherwise you would’ve wasted about £10-20 . :P

Poll would be up soon. Make sure you vote this time. -_-

Anyway, cya!

Happy New Year, FusionFallers!

1 01 2014

Google, ‘FusionFallers’ looks almost nothing like ‘Passionflowers’. Anyway, happy New Year, guys! Yes, over here, as I’m typing this, we moved to 2014 about 40 minutes ago. London looked like it exploded at the end. :P

I hope you all had a good 2013. Because unless you’re the Doctor, it won’t come by again. To me, it was fairly neutral. And went by pretty quickly. I hope 2014 will be awesome! …I just jinxed it, didn’t I?

As for the poll, it seems Luigi’s Mansion’s winning, with The Evil Mirror not far behind. Before you check the poll below, don’t bother. As of typing this, no one on here voted. The exact reason I also hold these things on Xtreme. Remember that you can suggest a game. If I’ve played it, I’ll ignore the suggestion. If not, I’ll do that the upcoming Friday.

And again, happy New Year!
