Gummy Bears Magical Medallion 

 

Bargain priced games have gotten a real bad rap in the secular gaming media. They worship the multi-million dollar budget games. They are spoiled by rarely having to purchase games themselves. They don't consider families on a budget looking for something that is safe for all members of the family. Well Family Friendly Gaming continues to offset their blind spot with intelligent reviews that take into account Jesus Christ's parable of the talents. The big budget games better be block busters - after all the money they were given to work with. Games that are targeting those of us with less disposable income have less of a budget. So we do not expect the same things.

We have been playing Storm City Games products for some time now. One thing I have personally noted is how they improve with each iteration. They do not sit there churning out game after game using the same engine. They improve things, and try different approaches. You may remember the Gummy Bear golf games. Well Gummy Bears Magical Medallion is a side scrolling action adventure video game that is kept very safe for families.

The colors are bright and beautiful in Gummy Bears Magical Medallion. Yes I am a man comfortable with using the word beautiful. Live with it. The animations in Gummy Bears Magical Medallion can be a bit stiff at times. In fact the in game Gummy Bear characters have about as much movement as their real life counterparts. Swinging on vines looked a little off to me. Your character can jump on enemies who lay down for a bit before shaking it off. Your character can hit things and get knocked backwards. A certain amount of health is removed.

I like the music in Gummy Bears Magical Medallion. it is still playing in my head. It got stuck in their somewhere around the sixth or seventh level. This music has a fun but soft feel to it. Sort of like eating a gummy bear. And it does not get stuck in my teeth and let the dentist drill. The special effect sounds fit the theme of this game. In fact those sounds alerted me to hitting something before I realized I missed a jump.

Is Gummy Bears Magical Medallion worth the twenty dollars it is selling for new? Yes it is. You will get your moneys worth out of this game. There are enough levels to explore, and mini games to play to appeal to all ages of the family. Please read the next paragraph to better understand that statement. Gummy Bears Magical Medallion contains various items to collect, and getting 100% on every level takes time and practice.

It took me some time to discern who the target audience is in Gummy Bears Magical Medallion. Being a cute game, I can not see hardcore gamers taking much interest. Unless they are ready for a challenge. That is what brought me to the younger members of the family. Some of the levels are a little too hard for them. But the mini games are right up their alley. So I see Gummy Bears Magical Medallion as a game teenagers and adults play to unlock everything, and then the younger members enjoy what has been unlocked.

I am very thankful that Family Friendly Gaming was provided a reviewable copy of Gummy Bears Magical Medallion. This is not the next Mario side scrolling game. But there are enough interesting features to appeal to families, at less than half the price. I am always looking for a deal, and feel this game is a sleeper hit in that department. I learned to avoid bad foods, and get back those medallions.
