Hey! Pikmin 

 

I feel bad for Nintendo. Their PR and Marketing failed them on Hey! Pikmin on the Nintendo 3DS. They lost a lot of sales by not sending Family Friendly Gaming a reviewable copy. Then the places they did send the game to did not like it very much. Well Family Friendly Gaming purchased Hey! Pikmin on the Nintendo 3DS. Guess what? We actually like it. We spent money on this game too.

At its core Hey! Pikmin is Pikmin done in the 2D plane. Some might think that will not work. I found it did work. It works quite well in fact. I had a blast playing this game. Whether it was going through levels, at the Pikmin Park, or in bonus levels; I found this game to be charming on so many levels. The controls are easy to pick up. We tap on the screen where we want to launch a Pikmin. The same goes for using the jetpack, or whistling the Pikmin back to us.

The violence in Hey! Pikmin comes from launching Pikmin at enemies. They will die and a little ghost will fly up from their bodies. The spirit goes away pretty quickly. It was noticeable to me though. A lot of Hey! Pikmin is solving the puzzles. We need to get objects that build up our sparklium in Hey! Pikmin on the Nintendo 3DS. Pikmin in the park will also find some. At certain levels we are given new items or skills.

The bosses in Hey! Pikmin are very interesting indeed. Hey! Pikmin also comes with Amiibo support if you purchase those. I suggest checking for good prices on Black Friday up until Christmas. There are enough levels in Hey! Pikmin to warrant a twenty dollar purchase in my opinion. Some levels might need to be replayed if certain objects were missed. That is if you are a 100% completest.

The art and animation look good in Hey! Pikmin. The music is pleasant, and there is always something to do in Hey! Pikmin. I am surprised so much content was stuffed into Hey! Pikmin on the Nintendo 3DS. I actually personally prefer this game play style to the 3D game play style. That reminds me Hey! Pikmin does not have any 3D effects in it. So it must be played totally in 2D.
