Red Riding Hood
Interactive books have been doing well in the last couple of years.
Family Friendly Gaming has been covering them on a variety of different
systems. Red Riding Hood may be the first time we have reviewed one on
the Wii U. Nintendo used to be all mean and nasty toward ideas like
interactive books. They have loosened up thankfully.
Red Riding Hood is read to the child by a narrator. The female narrator does a nice job in Red Riding Hood. Her soothing relaxing voice can ease children into being less rambunctious. It also goes along with the beautiful scenery. The artwork of characters is super imposed on the top.
There are few options in Red Riding Hood. You can play the story, or watch the credits. There is one choices children can make while playing Red Riding Hood. There is a limited amount of interactions though. I could not find a way to fast forward the words while it was scrolling onto the screen.
Red Riding Hood is a downloadable only product on the Wii U. I wish there was some way for interactive books like Red Riding Hood to appear on physical copies. Maybe after Brave Rock Games releases enough books they can do a physical copy compilation.
Red Riding Hood is selling for one dollar at the time this review is being written. Which is extremely cheap when you think about it. The TV screen can be turned off while playing Red Riding Hood, since everything is done on the Wii U Gamepad.
The ending of Red Riding Hood will change depending on the choice you make earlier in the story on trusting the wolf or not. If you trust the wolf the little girl gets eaten. If you do not trust the wolf then the normal ending is given with the death of the wolf.
