The Big Journey 

 

Here I was drowning in tons of press releases, and offers to spend my money to make these different game publishers rich. I will admit my attitude was not that great. How many people have we helped over the years? How many have ever come back and provided any kind of meaningful financial thank you for all of the hard work we have done that has made them so wealthy? I knew the answer was hardly any. As I thought about these things information on The Big Journey on the Nintendo Switch came in.

The images of this game caught my attention. It reminded me of LocoRoco. I really love that franchise. Instead of a blob that grows with collecting of items we get a fat cat that rolls around and eats dumplings. What is this cat doing? He is on a quest to find Mr Choo. Why? Mr Choo has gone missing. So the cat named Mr. Whiskers is rolling around to make sure the best dumpling maker has not been kidnapped and thrown down a well.

We tilt the levels in The Big Journey just like LocoRoco. We collect dumplings and bugs in each of the thirty levels of The Big Journey. I wish there were more levels because The Big Journey is a blast to play. There are enemies we can jump into, and others that we must avoid. What happens if you take a hit in The Big Journey? You lose a dumpling. We want to get six dumplings per levels so losing one can be problematic.

The music in The Big Journey starts really nice. Later on there were some weird sounds here and there. The Big Journey is not quite as happy and upbeat as LocoRoco. The Big Journey does have more story elements though. We meet all kinds of different animals on our short quest in The Big Journey. There is little reason to replay levels in The Big Journey in my opinion.

I am glad I gave this downloadable only video game a chance. The 649 meg download size did not kill me in terms of hard drive space either. I hope this game grows into the very respected physical copy format in the United States. I am shocked no else has tried a LocoRoco like video game. That franchise is a major favorite here at Family Friendly Gaming.
