Magic Box: Oniri Islands

Magic Box: Oniri Islands

The litlgeeks got a fantastic surprise in the mail from their friends at Tourmaline Studios.  What was in it??

 

Oniri Islands is a 2-player cooperative game for iPad.  To play the game, you need the two figures that represent the two main characters.  Mina and Tim.  Now, Oniri Island is part of a Kickstarter project that JUST started 3/16, only two days ago.

As you can see, this project is pretty far along.  The game is wonderful.  The figures are very very pretty.  The gameplay is whimsical with a calming sound track.  

You use the two figures to move around in the game, collect items and interact with objects.  You are guided in the game by Tim and Mina’s grandmother who provides clues and context to your experience.  The litlgeeks played through the first “level” where they had to collect 5 fire creatures to make a signal.  Once they made the signal, animals of the island gave up their spirits to protect the children and become their “masks”.  Masks are other accessories you can use in the real world for the figures, but for purposes of this review, we only received the figures, not the masks.

Highlights of the game:

  • The art style is really stunning, fresh and endearing
  • The narration of the grandmother serves to bring players into the world
  • The figures, though ours are unpainted prototypes are well made, very pretty
  • The game is intuitive and simple to pick up

What we are hoping is improved with the final product (and we are sure it will be)

  • The interaction between the figures and the iPad screen was finicky at times, frequently causing us to have to re-place the figures on the screen.  It should be noted, we do have glass screen protectors on all of our devices, that could have played a role in some of our challenges.

Now, the Kickstarter is live and has been for 2 days.  They are already at $13000 of their $34000 goal.  Let’s all help them get there, this is absolutely a game worth backing.  It’s fun, beautiful and plays great!

Injustice 2 Introduces Firestorm

Injustice 2 Introduces Firestorm

We here at MUReview have been closely monitoring the fun coming down our street with Injustice 2 for PS4 and Xbox One.  We were HUGE fans of the first game that pits DC hero against DC hero (or villain) in arena style combat with over the top action and amazing visuals.

Today, we got word that Firestorm has been added to the roster…watch the video and keep reading!

 

Now, while I’m a big fan of Firestorm (he’s one of my favorite DC Icons figures!), Doctor Fate is a long time favorite number one on my DC Roster…and he’s in the game too!!

The litlgeeks are massive fans of all things LEGO.  They love building, they love LEGO Dimensions, so when Lego Worlds was announced in the second half of 2016, they were understandably excited.  Fast forward to March 2017, the game is out on shelves and it is just so much fun!  the litlgeeks got a copy of the game from their friends at Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment and they can’t be any more thrilled to share the game with you!

 

 

LEGO Worlds is available for Playstation 4, XBox One, and PC.  You can pick it up on Amazon today for $29.99 plus tax – Xbox One | Playstation 4 |  Just make sure you choose the right platform for you (game console not included, required to play).

Lego Worlds is rated E10+ by the ESRB, which means it’s good for Everyone ages 10 and up.  The litlgeeks are a litl younger than that, but we watch and play with them all the time, and so far we haven’t heard or seen anything that WE felt was inappropriate for them at ages 7 and 5.
