The Legend of Kusakari
Recently Family Friendly Gaming was provided a digital download code
of The Legend of Kusakari on the Nintendo 3DS. I personally played The
Legend of Kusakari on the Nintendo 2DS so I can not speak to any of the
3D effects. I had fun playing this grass cutting video game, and it made
me think about the condition of the video game industry as a whole.
Different groups with different agendas are pushing for different
There are vocal gamers out there that want brand new experiences. Numerous companies out there listen to these vocal gamers. Companies are constantly trying to innovate, put a new twist on, and more. The Legend of Kusakari is in essence the grass cutting portion of Zelda video games. There is one major difference in The Legend of Kusakari - you can not attack the enemies.
In fact enemies and heroes will fight it out on the screen while we are cutting the grass. This is brilliant in my opinion. We are doing our job, and not fighting. In fact we need to avoid fighting in The Legend of Kusakari. Take too much damage and it is game over. Your health also drains while the level is being played. Blue grass will heal your hearts and let you play longer. I wonder if that is a clever reference to the kind of music. Does the developer like bluegrass music?
There are fifty levels in The Legend of Kusakari on the Nintendo 3DS. The graphics are a bit small, but we are taking about a hand held system. Bumping into heroes, monsters, or getting in their way fighting can be bad for the gardeners health. I love being able to avoid violence in The Legend of Kusakari. I wish more video game companies considered that game play mechanic.
The music in The Legend of Kusakari is fantastic. It encouraged me to cut the grass quickly. I learned to be strategic with the blue grass in The Legend of Kusakari. I only went for it when I needed it. Cutting too many of them in a row was a waste, and I would fail a level. I am humbled and honored that I was allowed to play and review The Legend of Kusakari on the 3DS.
