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!

 

The litlgeeks received the products in this review for free.

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!!

Players find hidden items and solve entertaining puzzles while also earning unique powers that are physically represented by masks that can be placed on the figurines.

“We’re extremely excited to launch Oniri Islands on Kickstarter so we can gather further support to make final touches on the game in time for its launch in November.” says Marion, co-founder of Tourmaline Studio.
