Astro Bears Party 

 

When I first heard of Astro Bears Party on the Nintendo Switch I immediately thought of Mario Party. I expected Astro Bears Party to be this lengthy board game with all kinds of mini games in it. I thought it would have twenty or thirty different games to play. Want to know a secret? I was wrong. I was off base. I was not near the truth. My wife is now asking to get: "I was wrong,' on a plaque.

Astro Bears Party is a mixture between Tron and Snake. It depends if you play the single player mode or the two to four player mode. In the multiplayer we can pick how large the planet is. In the single player mode our trailing line grows with each Jetfish we acquire. In the multiplayer mode that trailing line never gets smaller. That means real estate on the planet shrinks.

One difference between Tron, Snake, and Astro Bears Party is jumping. We can jump in Astro Bears Party. That means we can jump over the trailing colored lines of the other players. Which leaves a trailing colored line up in the air. There are four bear character to pick from in Astro Bears Party. I am not sure what Jetfish are, or why we are hunting them in this downloadable only video game.

I am very thankful Qubic Games sent Family Friendly Gaming a digital download code for Astro Bears Party on the Nintendo Switch. I love the 3D aspect of running around these planets. I wish there was a way to have an even larger game play area. Four players on the same planet fills things up very quickly. Which makes matches pretty short and there is not much time for strategy.

The music in Astro Bears Party is great. The graphics are indie. Families can pick how many points they need to get to for one player to end up winning. There is some definite fun to be had inside Astro Bears Party on the Nintendo Switch. The short matches did make me feel like so much more could have been done in Astro Bears Party. Maybe that will happen in a sequel.
