In Groove Heaven on the
Nintendo 3DS we learn about a demon who has fallen in love with a
goddess. He sends a devil on a mission to go from hell to heaven with a
red rose. That way he can let her know he loves her. So we take this
little devil and work our way up to the top - one floor at a time.
Whatever happened to playing good guys? What ever happened to playing angels? The spiritual lessons in Groove Heaven are deep, and directly contradict the Holy Bible on multiple fronts. Which is a shame because the game play in this hand held game has some promise.
We have two buttons to press in Groove Heaven. One is to move and the other is to turn around. Yes you turn around bright eyes. These buttons are on the bottom touch screen. Players must touch them at exactly the right time, or you get an ugly face and a nasty sound from your demonic character.
If you get the timing and beat just right in Groove Heaven, then the just over thirty levels are a breeze. If you get off, then you can expect to die. Or sit there and suffer through that face and sound over and over again. Which can be a problem because later levels require the player stop at certain spots. Starting up again at exactly the right point can become frustrating.
The 3D effects in Groove Heaven are okay. They are not as deep and impressive as other titles. On the other side of the coin they did not grant me a headache. The dark graphics were not to my personal liking. The music in Groove Heaven is the kind that made me want to tap to the beat.
Groove Heaven costs $3.99 on the Nintendo eShop, and it carries with it an everyone ten years old and older age restriction. Depending on how well versed your child is on spiritual matters, I would suggest possibly waiting until they are thirteen years or older.
