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!
