Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale
Level-5 continues to astound and
amaze us here at Family Friendly Gaming. I know I keep saying it. You
may be tired of hearing it. But it is true. I am just not intelligent
enough to think of a new way of imparting that knowledge. Attack of the
Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale thinks outside the box in so many ways.
Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale is set in Japan in 1971. A ten year old boy (Sohta) has just transferred to a new town. He has a father, and a mother. He loves to watch monster shows on television. Where the monsters are fought off by courageous giant super hero characters. The theme of family runs through this 3DS game.
Sohta makes friends with other kids around his age - some are older, but this is a small town. His father runs a dry cleaner store out of the their house. Other villagers also run businesses out of their homes. The television station is held in high esteem by many of the local children. There are bad kids in the town. You know bullies.
As I first started to play Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale I was trying to figure out what to do. I unlocked episode after episode by talking to people. It was easy to get distracted and forget to do a chore. Then I noticed these glowing orbs on the ground. Collecting enough of them created a monster card. Don't worry this game explains all of this in its 'Word to the Wise' segments.
The monster card battling is where Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale started to get really interesting. I could monster card battle other characters in the game. Kids like to "throw spells" on one another. Don't worry it was not real. They would have a character fall down and then arise again. Actually come to think of it, it is pretty lame and childish. Which is probably the point.
Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale is played at your pace. You work on the episodes that interest you. Although it is generally advisable to follow the main storyline as much as possible. The card battling game is pretty simplistic but it still has some strategy involved.
I will admit it, I am impressed with Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale. There is an innocence to this game. It is fun exploration with hurdles to overcome. Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale reminds me what it was like to be a kid running around and having fun. The sixth downloadable 3DS game from Level-5 is a definite hit.
