Mappy Kids





Mappy Kids 


I am so thankful I had the money to purchase Namco Museum Collection 1 on the Evercade. Mappy Kids is one of the video games on that compilation cartridge. I really had fun playing this old 8-bit NES 2D side scrolling video game. The jumping in Mappy Kids took a bit to get used to. We can traverse some really wide gaps thanks to the floating ability after the jump by our little mouse. Mappy Kids makes me want to see more games like this one in the future.

The bright colors really stick out in Mappy Kids. There are interesting cool and neat environments within Mappy Kids. There are also multiple places to jump and walk across in Mappy Kids. I liked being higher personally so I did not fall off the screen. When the main character in Mappy Kids takes a hit he rolls backwards and loses his money. The money can be re-acquired if you are quick enough. You will also need to line up its bouncing with your character.

There are constantly creatures in the way of the player in Mappy Kids. We must avoid them again and again in Mappy Kids. There is a slot like machine mini game in Mappy Kids in certain areas. We can also purchase items from the stores in Mappy Kids too. Opening treasure chests is very important within Mappy Kids. The same goes for collecting the baseball looking money. Certain blocks can be removed by the player in Mappy Kids as well.

The music in Mappy Kids is fantastic. Families will definitely get their money's worth out of Mappy Kids. The main violent content within Mappy Kids is when the player takes a hit. There are mini games like Butt Bounce where we knock another character off a can onto the floor. We do this facing away from one another. I had to learn what button to press to play those mini games.

I really enjoyed playing Mappy Kids on the Evercade. There are nods to other Namco franchise in Mappy Kids. I loved seeing the ghosts in the background of some of the mini games. I also enjoyed the map screen and seeing the different levels. Mappy Kids feels like a Super Mario Bros 3 in many ways. I would love to see this franchise make a return at some point in the future.
