So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

The Good: Cute visual style, tight controls

The Bad: Super easy, way to many ways to save, lame mini-games, geared towards kids only

The Legendary Starfy is actually the fifth game in the series, but the first game seen here in the States. You play as Stafy who finds a little rabbit that lost his memory, and must find crystal shards that will restore his memory. Yeah it's not too great, but this game is clearly aimed towards little kids.

The game has tight controls and are easy to grasp with Starfy swimming underwater mostly, but he's really slow on land. The goal of the game is just navigate screen to screen, collect little stars (currency in the game), and watch cut scenes until the end. It gets very boring after the second chapter, and most older experienced gamers will turn it off. The game is just way to easy with enemies that don't attack you. Yeah, you have to run into them to get hurt. Navigating the levels for treasure chests and stars is probably the only incentive to go through this game, but the items you can buy are pretty lame.

Try dressing a star up. It looks pretty bad, and obviously only appeals to small children, or simple minded people. Even the boss fights are easy and can be killed in just a few hits not to mention a save before a door, then a save when you go through it then no save until the end of the level. Yeah makes no sense, but kids won't really notice or care. Plus, you can save in the start menu! Do we really need this many saves?! Well, you can find different abilities to help Starfy that are attached to the touchscreen such as Moe's ability to sense treasure, a mermaid's ability to give you level info as you go, and you can transform into a fire breathing dino, but it's not as fun as you would think.

There are four different mini-games that are boring and pretty lame even with other people, but little kids will enjoy them...I guess. There is even a little talk show thing that Moe does, but it's as strange and lame as can be, so I don't even think kids will get this. Overall the game has a nice art style and looks really cute, has crisp clean visuals, but the underlying game is just for casual DS players and kids. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone remotely further than the most casual of casual players or kids.
