Hello Kitty Roller Rescue 

 

Hello Kitty has been a favorite of my beloved niece for quite a few years now. The cute little kitty kat on roller skates is definitely a franchise that should appeal to little girls. So when this editor at Family Friendly Gaming ran across this game, Namco was contacted. It is interesting to note that this was a Gamecube exclusive game, and the ESRB gave it no descriptors. Although how the ESRB missed cartoon violence is beyond me, but since they don’t actually play the games they rate their mistakes make a lot more sense.

Namco did a decent job in the visuals of this kids game. There are a lot of bright colors, and a lively 3D environment. The details are a little below average, but most children will not mind. The cuteness factor is pretty high for these different characters, and the animation is average. There are little cinema movies telling parts of the story, and those are at a very high level of quality. As I mentioned in the previous paragraph there is cartoon violence in Hello Kitty Roller Rescue. The player starts with just the kitty, and uses a wand to whack the enemies. Later weapons like a hammer are found. Bad shapes (if you don’t believe me play the game) are the enemies, and they vanish after being hit enough times.

The sounds are very clear in Hello Kitty Roller Rescue. The music is pleasant, and very happy. The wand sounds did not work for me. Kitty spends the entire game saving those who have been imprisoned by the bad shapes. I let my niece, and son check out this game, and both thought the music was nice.

There are plenty of things to unlock in the form of costumes, cinemas, characters, music, and difficulties. I let my four year old son try this game and he easily got to level 10 without any help. I think this is a game that is worth your money, especially if the cartoon violence does not bother you.

Hello Kitty Roller Rescue has some pretty simplistic controls. In some ways it reminds me of Super Mario 64 on the Nintendo 64, although it is a lot shorter. Not only did I have fun with it, but every child I have had try it also has had fun with it. Not all video games need to be difficult, and it is nice to have some easy games from time to time that younger members of the family can enjoy. I also like the designs of the levels.

I like the lesson of helping those who have been trapped by evil. I like how Kitty can get additional characters to assist her on levels as well. I am not fond of the magical wand, or having to beat the bad shapes over the head. However the major boss bad guys all get away without being killed, and that is good. I would love to see more Hello Kitty games, especially if they can come up with some original game play ideas that do not involve violence.
