SimAnimals Africa





SimAnimals Africa 


I have enjoyed a lot of animal games on the Nintendo DS over the years. I was pretty excited to get to play SimAnimals Africa on the little hand held video game machine. A little parrot guides the player through how to take care of the environment. In some ways SimAnimals Africa reminds me of Viva Pinata. Shake trees for fruit, and seeds. Shake the grass for it to multiply. Pet, and feed animals to have them become your friends. From there the player finds two of the same animals. They fall in love, and have a baby. All of this reminds me of Viva Pinata.

The graphics in SimAnimals Africa disappointed me. The animals are small, and do not have a lot of details. They do animated nicely, but many of them have the same animations. Carnivores will go after herbivores so you can lose some of your animal friends. Insects like locust will go after the plants, so that can be annoying.

The music in SimAnimals Africa is pleasant. I liked listening to it, and how the environment is presented audibly. There is talk of the green movement in this DS game. SimAnimals Africa has some talk of animal totems which are a religious symbol in certain cultures. This content is light, but still present.

SimAnimals Africa contains different animals, and plenty of plants to find. This is one of the biggest replay values to this game. Cataloging all of them provides the player with a special surprise. SimAnimals Africa allows two players to trade with one another as long as both of ya’ll have the game (multiplayer mode). Think about Pokemon.

Moving around the habitats are pretty easy. The touch screen controls work masterfully. I found that the directional button can also be used. It can take time to beat a level in SimAnimals Africa. For a hand held this does not fit well in my opinion. Thankfully EA lets the player save whenever they want to. I found this option to offset the length of the levels. I had fun playing SimAnimals Africa, even if many of the levels were repetitive.

I really wish that SimAnimals Africa looked better. That is the one drawback to this game in my opinion. I would like to see a sequel to this game, because I have enjoyed the Viva Pinata style. SimAnimals Africa teaches players to take care of animals, and the environment. We have had gardens for years, eat the fruits, and veggies. I do not consider myself a part of the green movement. It is more cost efficient to do so.
