Tomodachi Life is, quite frankly, mental. If you’ve managed to avoid any of the online chatter about this latest life simulation game, then you’re in for a real treat! Out exclusively on Nintendo’s 3DS, this is a title that’s less concerned with the mundane realities of life and more focused the improbable.
Central to the gameplay experience is the awesome Mii Editor. Here you can create family members, celebrities or just about anyone else you can think of, before setting them free in a madcap world that’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.
Think The Sims meets the imagination of a hyperactive 4 year old hopped up on candy and you’ll be in the right ballpark – although Developer: Nintendo SPD Group 1 Publisher: Nintendo Genre: Life Sim Format(s): 3DS that still doesn’t even come close to doing the game anything resembling credit!
There’s no real “point” to Tomodachi Life as such, but rather it’s a unique universe living on your 3DS. Gameplay barely extends beyond navigating a series of menus, but it’s nevertheless an incredibly enjoyable experience as your characters find themselves in increasingly random and bizarre situations. Your aim is to keep them all happy, healthy and prepared for whatever lies around the corner, while guiding them along their day to day lives.
It’s unlike anything else out there, and it’s a must-have if you like your games zany!
