People ask me why do I help my husband out with Family Friendly Gaming. The answer should be pretty obvious, and there are additional reasons. Family Friendly Gaming is taking the approach of getting input from women as well as men. The roles of a woman in the family is a little different, just as games geared towards women are a little different. We also believe in trying to have the expert of a certain genre be the one to report on that game. This is why I enjoy playing games targeted towards females. I can give insight that no man will ever realize (nothing personal guys). In 2005 (last year as of writing of this review), the market for girl gamers was $40 million in sales, and showing continual growth. This Gameboy Advance game from THQ follows the live action television show on Nickelodean. We get to follow the extremely hectic life of Addie Singer. The ESRB gave this game an ‘E’ for Everyone rating with absolutely no descriptors whatsoever.

The graphics in Unfabulous are usually very bright and colorful. This is an important thing, especially for me. The details are average, considering this is a Gameboy Advance cartridge. The characters all have big heads, little bodies, and long legs, which takes a little getting used to.

The sounds in Unfabulous are really repetitive. This is one place where the crisp, and clear aspect of the sounds really hurts the game. The music in this game is very upbeat, which make listening to it quite a treat. The music is however definitely forgettable, after turning the game off I can not recall the tunes.

Unfabulous has a lot of mini games where the wheelchair bound principal gives chase. These are annoyingly difficult enough to have to be replayed multiple times. Aside from that, there is little to no reason to replay this game. Only one person at a time can play this game, and use the passwords to get to the different levels. Only one save is allowed. If you are really into the television show, then this game may be worth your hard earned dollars, otherwise take a pass.

I had problems with some of the controls in certain mini games. It took me forever to figure out how to make Addie run. The designs of the levels are really repetitive. There were a couple of mini games that were interesting (the dancing one stands out). I felt like playing this game was a chore, and not a lot of fun.

Addie’s mother has her do chores, and pick up after herself - which is a wonderful lesson for teenagers to learn (even some adults). The characters in the game are also helping each other out all the time. Unfabulous is safe for the entire family. I really hope there are no sequels to this game. The subject material is not that bad, but the execution needs some work. As I mentioned in the previous paragraph it was a chore to review this game.
