Have you ever wanted to be a Top Model and walk down the catwalk in a Fashion Showdown between other beautiful and successful girls? Here’s your chance to be the best model, in XS Software’s Lady Popular Fashion Arena.

You can play this amazing dressup game for free in your web browser without needing to download or install any software. You can register either by email, or by connecting your facebook account.

Overview: 10/10 Lady Popular Fashion Arena has a lot to offer. You start the game by choosing your hair, makeup, skin tone, outfits, and accessories. As you begin to complete quests within the game, you level up and gain access to new activities such as a photo shoot, new shops to explore, pets to dressup, or even find a boyfriend and dress him up too. It also has a dating sim element and wedding planning element. It’s the perfect game for young girls dreaming of falling in love, being beautiful, popular, and having an amazing career.

Lady Popular Fashion Arena

Gameplay: 8/10 – When you first start the game there will not be much for you to do in the early levels. This can be frustrating, but it does make leveling up and playing every day much more rewarding, as you will gain access to more features that help to mix up the gameplay.

Lady Popular Fashion Arena

Like most games in the Dressup Game genre, the main gameplay focuses on purchasing new outfits and accessories. To earn in-game currency you will complete your quest log, or face off against other real players in ultimate fashion battles.

In addition to dressing up, you also have to undergo extensive training to learn how to become a Top Model. You can choose from many different courses to improve your scores in Style, Beauty, Creativity, Devotion, Generosity, and Loyalty. All of which affect how popular your model is.

Lady Popular Fashion Arena

The user interface and tutorials in the beginning make this a very intuitive game to pick up and play without much of a learning curve. This makes the game great for young girls, even if they’re not experienced playing similar games of this nature.

The extra and unique features that begin to open up as you advance in the game, set Lady Popular apart from many other dressup games that focus only on fashion. As mentioned, Lady Popular also has a dating sim element later in the game and even allows you to plan your own engagement party.

Lady Popular Fashion Arena

Lady Popular also focuses more on social interaction and encourages you to play with friends, which is different from most dressup games that are more of a solo experience.

A recent update, totally revamped the questing system, making it much more exciting and rewarding to complete your quests which help you advance through the game. Once you begin to advance in the game, the sheer number of shops, outfits, activities, and little touches really hooks you in playing this game each day.

Story: 5/10  There is not much of a story, especially in the early levels. Your imagination becomes the story, and it allows you to choose your own path and determine what type of model you want to be.

Characters: 7/10 The characters in this game are all other models playing the game too. You can interact with your friends in real time, and compete against other players. On the downside, this also means there’s not much of a “story” behind these characters.

Lady Popular Fashion Arena

Customization: 10/10 The ability to customize everything about your avatar, from her hair, facial features, makeup, outfits, room, and the ability to customize pets and boyfriends, and then even customize your wedding and engagement, make this game a perfect 10 for customization options. You can be a cute, preppy, classic beauty, or rock out an alternative look with bright pink or blue colored hair or anything in between.

Graphics: 10/10 Lady Popular is a very brightly colored and attractive looking 2D game. The interface is intuitive, and the sheer number of clothes, accessories, and dressup items, make this game super cute.

 

Music: 5/10: Honestly, I usually play games like this on mute, or while watching tv or playing other games. If you’re playing with music on, like with most games of this nature, the music is fine, but nothing extraordinary, and due to the repetitive daily gameplay, the music can get annoying after you’ve heard it over and over again.

Replay Value: 10/10 What makes Lady Popular so much fun is the ability to interact with or against other players, as well as the mini games and other activities which open up later as you level up. To really appreciate this game you need to slog through the first few levels to get to the good parts. After that, you will be hooked by the number of things to do, and millions of different ways to customize your model and shape her life.

Line Play Free Anime Dressup Game Like Gaia Online for IOS and Android Mobile Devices

This review honestly has been long overdue. I’m sure many of our readers already play Line Play everyday. This cute anime-styled game has been popular for a number of years now. It offers everything you could want in a dressup game, pets, cute outfits, rooms, fishing, minigames, and even chat rooms. There’s tons of stuff to do and new items being released constantly into the game which gets updated quite often with new cute things to collect, new minigames, or limited time events.

Needless to say, if you enjoy other similar anime dressup games I’ve reviewed here such as Hello Nikki, CocoPpaPlay, Romantic Diary, Pokemini / Pokecolo or Miitomo then you will also enjoy Line Play, so let’s take a closer look below!

Title: Line Play

IOS Version Herehttps://itunes.apple.com…

Android Version Herehttps://play.google.com…

Genre: Anime Dressup Game

Publisher: Line Corporation

geekyGeeky: 3/5 geekygeekygeeky – Although it is saccharine overload at times, if you’re not opposed to a “cutesy” game, then Line Play actually has a ton of features and is more robust and in depth than a lot of other anime dressup games. There are also a lot of skill-based minigames which provide a fun challenge and way to earn in-game currency. It does however sometimes suffer connection issues or lag which is why I can’t rate it higher.

sweetieSweetie: 5/5 sweetiesweetiesweetiesweetiesweetie – This game oozes charm and cuteness at every corner. It also partners with big-brand names you know and love such as Hello Kitty, Sailor Moon, Disney, and Show by Rock, as well as offering tons of options to customize your avatar, your room, even raising cute pets! It also has a journal system and chat rooms making it almost a social network as much as it’s also a game.

Overall: 60/80 75% C “Good Game For Girls”

Concept: 10/10 – I’ve mentioned it a few times, but this game has just a ton of things to do! You can go fishing, you can raise a pet, you can play skill-based minigames, you can dressup your avatar as well as decorate your room by layering different items from thousands if not millions of combinations. The social networking aspects are also a great way to make friends, or play together with your real life friends. There are multiple worlds you can explore and lots of new things to see and do which get added regularly with new updates.

Gameplay: 8/10 Although there is a lot to do in this game, it does become tedious and repetitive after long periods of play. The game also suffers from occasional lag or connectivity issues. However, those two small flaws aside, this game is a lot of fun. You get to interact with other players which makes the game world feel very immersive and alive. You can choose to play various minigames which require speed, skill, and a bit of luck. You can go fishing, explore multiple different themed worlds where you can chat or roleplay with your friends, or just spend hours alone in your room decorating your home, playing with your pet, writing in your journal, or trying on new outfits.

 Story: 2/10 – I thought about giving story a zero to be honest, but then I remembered that there are occasional events which present a story in comic book form (similar to Gaia Online, actually almost everything about this game is very much like Gaia Online). These stories are cute and short, sometimes continued through multiple-part events. But ultimately, there really is no true overarching story of any kind.

Graphics: 10/10 – This game is just so cute. The game is in 2D isometric top-down view reminiscent of many retro or anime-styled games. There is a lot of work put into the sheer amount of graphics needed to create this game. Really no two avatars ever look alike thanks to hundreds of thousands of different items. Items get removed and added in almost daily. When you first start the game, you can select to either be a human or furrie. This setting cannot be changed later, and both races have access to different face items. You customize everything about yourself, from your hair, to your shoes, to your eyes, nose, lips, shirt or dress, and then you can choose different accessories to accent your outfit. You also can decorate and expand your room. You can invite your friends over to party together in your room or go see your friends’ rooms too. There are also many open world areas for you to go explore each with a different cute theme! The user interface is also clean and intuitive.

Music: 5/10 – It’s cute at first, but gets old very quickly. Also I found some of the minigame music and sound effects to get distracting at times. There are lots of cute sound effects when fishing or playing with your friends. However, the main theme song gets used so often and in so many different areas of the world, that you will grow tired of it after a few hours max.

Community: 7/10 – Most of the people I’ve met in Line Play have been very nice and friendly; however, for being a social network, it seems most people are not that social. It’s probably more fun if you already have a group of friends to play with. However, there are several different chat rooms as well as the ability to chat in the open world areas, the journal system (where friends can leave a comment), and the ability to import friends from popular social networks such as Line and Facebook. It also features private messaging, group chats, or the ability to invite friends to see your room, or meet new ones in any of the open world areas. Friends can also help you out in various minigames or by sending you a “heart”. Once you get over that initial hurdle of making a few friends, Line Play definitely provides you all the tools you need to continue to foster that friendship. Since the game features kawaii graphics, many of the players in Line Play share common interests such as anime and games which can help when making new friends especially if you’re shy or introverted. On the other hand, because of the cute and simplistic nature of the game, the Line Play community also has many young children and teens and not very many active players who are over 30, such as myself, which can make it awkward or difficult to make new friends as well.

Replay Value: 10/10 Thanks to a wide variety of minigames and different activities to enjoy, as well as frequently updated content, limited events, and the drive to collect new and rare items for your home and avatar, this game keeps you coming back to see what’s new or to chat with your friends.

I bought this costume tonight for my dog, but she wouldn’t hold still to take photos, so I thought well I’ll try it on one of my cats. I had to bribe him with treats, and it was too small, the neck part fit good, but he is fat (or fluffy or both), so the Extra Small costume (for my chihuahua) was much too small around his waist. FYI The waist part is not fastened it’s just laying there under him. I would not force something tight or hurt him at all. It’s only fastened at the neck in which he had plenty of room.

Still hilarity ensued. I promise he didn’t hate it too much despite his “angry” expression. He hated the flash from my camera more than the costume. He was too busy eating treats to even care he was wearing anything lol.

No cats (or bananas) were harmed in the making of these photos and he is not being forced to wear the costume any more or for any length of time (took about 4 minutes to snap a couple photos then I removed the outfit from him) :) And no, he did not scratch, hiss, or try to run away, he was too interested in the treats I kept handing him lol.

I know he looks sad, but he’s stretched out sleeping on his back now, perfectly content and 100% banana free. :)

He was hunched down here in these photos because he was eating treats on the blanket; squinting because of flash, if you look at ears, you can see they are not flat back thus he is in a neutral / calm state; although admittedly probably not too happy to have to wear a banana around his neck and have a camera stuck in his face. His hunched and squinting appearance makes him look much more sad or fearful than he actually was at the time. In fact, he kept getting too close to the camera / rubbing against my hand wanting me to give him more treats while I was trying to take these, instead of running or hiding under the bed, etc. So don’t feel too bad for him, he was well “Compensated” for having to be my model for a couple of minutes :)

Tiny Farm Review | IOS | Android | Virtual Pet | Harvest Moon | Farmville

Title: Tiny Farm

Genre: Farming Simulator with City Building elements

Publisher: Com2Us

Grab it on IOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tiny-farm-season2/id448859328?mt=8

Grab it on Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.com2us.tinyfarm.normal2.freefull.google.global.android.common&hl=en

Geeky Factor: 

Sweetie Factor: 

Concept: 6/10 Tiny Farm is a game similar in nature to that of Harvest Moon or Farmville. The objective is to take care of live stock, plant and harvest crops, go fishing, and breed the animals in your farm, all while making a profit to buy new farming equipment, better seeds, better livestock, etc. It’s one of those games that’s fun in small doses, and addictive at first, but if you intend to play it heavily, you may become bored by the repetitive nature of these games. They try to lessen that effect somewhat by regularly having special events with limited edition livestock or other prizes that you don’t want to miss out on, which keeps you logging in to keep up with the latest in-game events and items. I also find it a bit more interesting than just a farming simulator as you can also run your own zoo, or go to the beach, or participate in other activities as well.

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js //

Gameplay: 7/10 The gameplay is pretty simple and straight forward, the controls are easy, you can click on an animal to bring up a submenu where you can give it “love” which helps it level up, and once it reaches certain levels of love it can breed with certain other animals who also have max love. You can also sell your animals to make room for new animals (which you’ll have to do a lot in the early levels as your space is very limited). You get to play the lucky bag gacha once every 24 hours for free and inside you will find things like animals, eggs, decorations, buildings, etc. You also get to go on a safari once a day for free. The safari is a mini game in which you must turn over cards to collect animal foot prints. Once you reach a certain number of footprints you’re able to bring home a new animal. You can find different animals in different areas on the map. You can place buildings and decorations around your farm, zoo, or beach to increase the profits from these areas. Also back on the farm, you can hire a search party to capture different animals; the choices change each day with different animals being able to be found. Legendary animals also appear and can be captured after having given animals on your farm enough love. To capture the legendary creatures you’ll need to spend even more love; which becomes problematic as you never have enough love when the animals first appear – they do this because they want you to spend money. If you can find a way to level up, that will replenish your love and allow you to capture the animal before it disappears. Visiting friends gives you a few bonuses, but is pretty useless, there’s really no social interaction or multiplayer appeal to this game. The repetitive nature of the game also drops it down a few points in our score, it’s just not very fun after awhile. I like to check in on my farm 3 or 4 times a day for about 15-25 minutes at a time; anything more than that would be incredibly boring.

Story: 0/10 There is literally no story. The game is going to take a hit in our score books here, since we always rate games based on story and gameplay.

Characters: 8/10 I kinda “fudged” this category a bit (otherwise the score will be too low); and for this review, I am considering the animals themselves as the characters in this game, since there are no characters and no story. But there are some SERIOUSLY CUTE animals…. A llama in a banana costume, a nine tails in a barista costume, and many more. They’re over the top, creative, cute, zany, and limited edition too which makes me want to play to collect em all (like pokemon). The animals are really the heart and soul of the game. I think they could add a feature similar to pokemini, lineplay, or cocoplay though where you have a human avatar representing yourself and get to dress her/him and collect outfits from the gacha. I also think they could open up inter-species breeding. (maybe it unlocks at a higher level, I only began playing last week), to offer a wider range of pets. Right now it’s pretty specific, pets that look the same like a bearded pig and boar can’t breed with each other even or a Black cow and a Dairy Cow, when it seems like breeding them should be possible. So I deducted a point there.

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js //

Customization: 7/10 You can customize where you place your buildings and which animals you have on exhibit in your zoo. However, there’s little to do to customize the animals themselves. You can purchase “special effects” like rose petals or other things to place around your animals, but the effects available for purchase are limited (can count on one hand). And as mentioned above they’re missing out on further customization by neglecting to have human avatars, outfit gachas, or even outfits or accessories for the animals. Most of all though, I think the game could be more customizeable by allowing us to set different features within our shops; think of the old retro Rollercoaster Tycoon game for Sega Genesis, you could choose how salty your food was, how much ice was in your fountain drinks, etc. Finding the right balance between profit and happy customers. I think a feature like that brought to Tiny Farm could really make it shine and differentiate itself from its competition. But the buildings are upgradeable which unlocks more profits and bonuses which is a nice touch. I just would like to see them take customization a step or two further.

Kawaiiness (Cuteness): 10/10 – This is the cutest little farming game I’ve ever seen, the pets are so adorable. The fact that there are so many different animals, and especially lots of in game events with limited time animals makes it even more adorable. I would play this any day compared to farmville or hay day.

Music: 8/10 Cute and catchy music that is repetitive but does not get annoying

Graphics: 10/10 The graphics are “pixel” style and have a cute retro feel. The buildings are brightly colored and there’s a lot of different styles of pets and buildings to choose from.

Performance: 10/10 I have not experienced a game crash or any lag while playing on my old Ipad 2 (before Air designations). I have only been playing for a week though so that may change as my farm grows and more buildings/animals are packed onto my screen (taking more resources to display).

Overall: 72/90 80% B- “Very Good Game for Girls”

Zookeeper Battle VS Free Ipad Game Like Tetris But With Cute Animals

First a “State-of-the-geek” message (Skip this message by scrolling past the top 3 paragraphs).

Been a lonnnng time since I’ve posted anything for you guys. So here is a review of one of my favorite Ipad Games (plus hey it’s free, so you should really check it out!)

First, I’m still alive, and still geeky and passionate about all things geeky, kawaii, or otherwise known as awesome. I work a full 40+ hour work week, as a web developer / graphic artist / catchall for web/graphic/print/advertising/marketing lol. So I often don’t feel too inspired to work on my many “personal” (fun / hobby) websites. This one here ( http://geekysweetie.com ), http://partymotif.com , and my newest one http://otakujam.com I do not profit on anything that I write. I do have ad revenue, but not even enough to cover the costs of running and maintaining the servers and domain names of all the sites, let alone the time and energy and effort into maintaining them. So I apologize if updates are slow. If you’re actually reading this, thank you 🙂 If you’d like to chat sometime about games or anime or technology or anything else, please feel free to drop me a line. I love making new geeky friends. 🙂 Also I hope to go to Colosocon in Sandusky OH this spring. Anyone else going? ^^ I am super shy, and need friends :).

Ok So here comes the Review of Zookeeper Battle (I think when I first downloaded the app, it was called Zookeeper VS)

OVERVIEW: It’s a very cute tetris-like game. you arrange blocks and match shapes and colors to make room for new blocks. However, the blocks are all super cute animal heads.

The other, and more fun (in my opinion), aspect of this app is the “Gacha” system which allows you to win neat decorative items to decorate your zoo. You start with just one “exhibit” open to decorate, and as you progress, you (very slowly) unlock more exhibits. You can place one animal in each exhibit. You get to choose your first starter animal from a lineup including a bunny, alligator, elephant, lion, girraffe, and more. You get to win new animals, in new colors, and styles by playing the gacha.

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

You can purchase (with real money) platinum gacha tokens, but you don’t HAVE to purchase these, because you can also win them quite easily by participating in in-game events.

The animals and decorations that you add have an effect on your gameplay too! they’re not JUST for looks. They have a “Cute” and a “Cool” score (hmm kinda like our review system actually lol). These points help you in battles and in game events. You want to get as many Cute and Cool points as possible to attract zoo supporters (npcs) who will help you in the events, and the cute and cool points are what determines win/lose against various event bosses and battles. You want to win these battles because you get more super rare items and animals this way, most are limited time only items.

So you have a power / energy bar with 6 “slots”. Energy can be regained by using a power bottle (which can be purchased or won), or by just turning the app off and waiting about 30 minutes.

Each “VS” battle (that’s against a real player, just like yourself) costs 1 energy point.

Event “boss” battles cost 2 energy points. While other event battles “vandals” cost 1 energy point.

The game is seriously hard. I’ll be the first to admit, I kinda suck at this game lol. Your mileage may vary. You’re racing against the clock and other players in the “VS” mode, by eliminating certain animal blocks you get defense points, and by eliminating other blocks you earn attack points. If your attack is higher than your opponents’ defense, you score damage equal to the difference. Example, if your attack is 130, and your opponent’s defense is 80, you will shave off 50 hit points from your opponent’s life pool.

The first person to lose all of their life points loses the battle. OR if both opponents still have partial life points, the winner will be determined at the end of round 5, by selecting the player with the highest life points as the winner.

Graphics: 9/10

The main reason to play this game is to collect the cute animals and decor items. They are adorable, and there are hundreds of things to collect. I did take one point off because it does not have a landscape format while playing on Ipad which forces me to hold my Ipad in an awkard and uncomfortable fashion while playing the game. (IE: the images do not detect landscape mode: turning/tilting the ipad horizontally.)

Story:

N/A (There is no story) I was originally going to give this a score of zero out of ten, but that lowered the overall score so severely that it no longer accurately reflected how much I would recommend this game. So I just chose to ommit this category for this review. Just bear in mind there is no story, at all, period.

Concept: 7/10

A fun twist on traditional tetris like games, made more cute with decorating the zoo exhibits and cute animals. The gacha keeps the game fresh and keeps you playing to win new decor items. But overall, it is a simple game, and not overly original, just very cute and addicting.

Gameplay 8/10

This game is very challenging (sometimes frustrating). It gets high marks for gameplay due to the level of skill and speed required. The fact that you can play against real people from all over the world is also fun. There’s always lots of people online playing this game, with over 8 million players worldwide. Therefore there is no downtime or waiting required. It does eventually come to an “end” when you reach level 150, you will unlock your last “exhibit” and not be able to expand beyond that point. I’m only level 33 and have played it for almost 2 years (off/on) so I think that for most people there is plenty to strive for. The gacha system keeps things fresh and keeps you wanting to play again and again. It loses a point or two for me with lack of any real “social” elements. You can add friends and visit their zoos, but you don’t actually have to visit them, you can hit a button that says “visit all” and just collect your rewards and be on your way, so very rarely will anyone other than yourself see all of your cute zoo exhibits. People don’t chat or do much, you can’t trade gacha items for example, or anything else which would increase the need for playing with friends.

Characters: 4/10

There are lots of CUTE characters, but no story or any real value in them beyond the stat boost they give and them being cute.

Music 2/10

Really repetitive music, gets old fast. Also music seems louder in this app than many other games I play.  Grates on your nerves very quickly due to the repetitiveness and volume of the music.

Voiceacting: N/A (no voice acting)

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Customization: 10/10

I added this category of customization because I needed to balance out the “negative” aspects of my review to get to a total score that more closely represented how I felt about this game.

Customization is HUGE in this game and is one of the main (only?) reasons to play this game. You get to select your animal, background, and accessory for each of your zoo exhibits. So many cute options here! I love this aspect of the game, and am basing my recommendation for you to check out this game largely on this feature alone.

Total Score:  45 / 70 possible points

Been a lonnnng time since I’ve posted anything for you guys. So here is a review of one of my favorite Ipad Games (plus hey it’s free, so you should really check it out!)

First, I’m still alive, and still geeky and passionate about all things geeky, kawaii, or otherwise known as awesome. I work a full 40+ hour work week, as a web developer / graphic artist / catchall for web/graphic/print/advertising/marketing lol. So I often don’t feel too inspired to work on my many “personal” (fun / hobby) websites. This one here ( http://geekysweetie.com ), http://partymotif.com , and my newest one http://otakujam.com I do not profit on anything that I write. I do have ad revenue, but not even enough to cover the costs of running and maintaining the servers and domain names of all the sites, let alone the time and energy and effort into maintaining them. So I apologize if updates are slow. If you’re actually reading this, thank you :) If you’d like to chat sometime about games or anime or technology or anything else, please feel free to drop me a line. I love making new geeky friends. :) Also I hope to go to Colosocon in Sandusky OH this spring. Anyone else going? ^^ I am super shy, and need friends :).

OVERVIEW: It’s a very cute tetris-like game. you arrange blocks and match shapes and colors to make room for new blocks. However, the blocks are all super cute animal heads.

The other, and more fun (in my opinion), aspect of this app is the “Gacha” system which allows you to win neat decorative items to decorate your zoo. You start with just one “exhibit” open to decorate, and as you progress, you (very slowly) unlock more exhibits. You can place one animal in each exhibit. You get to choose your first starter animal from a lineup including a bunny, alligator, elephant, lion, girraffe, and more. You get to win new animals, in new colors, and styles by playing the gacha.

You can purchase (with real money) platinum gacha tokens, but you don’t HAVE to purchase these, because you can also win them quite easily by participating in in-game events.

The animals and decorations that you add have an effect on your gameplay too! they’re not JUST for looks. They have a “Cute” and a “Cool” score (hmm kinda like our review system actually lol). These points help you in battles and in game events. You want to get as many Cute and Cool points as possible to attract zoo supporters (npcs) who will help you in the events, and the cute and cool points are what determines win/lose against various event bosses and battles. You want to win these battles because you get more super rare items and animals this way, most are limited time only items.

So you have a power / energy bar with 6 “slots”. Energy can be regained by using a power bottle (which can be purchased or won), or by just turning the app off and waiting about 30 minutes.

Each “VS” battle (that’s against a real player, just like yourself) costs 1 energy point.

Event “boss” battles cost 2 energy points. While other event battles “vandals” cost 1 energy point.

The game is seriously hard. I’ll be the first to admit, I kinda suck at this game lol. Your mileage may vary. You’re racing against the clock and other players in the “VS” mode, by eliminating certain animal blocks you get defense points, and by eliminating other blocks you earn attack points. If your attack is higher than your opponents’ defense, you score damage equal to the difference. Example, if your attack is 130, and your opponent’s defense is 80, you will shave off 50 hit points from your opponent’s life pool.

The first person to lose all of their life points loses the battle. OR if both opponents still have partial life points, the winner will be determined at the end of round 5, by selecting the player with the highest life points as the winner.

Graphics: 9/10

The main reason to play this game is to collect the cute animals and decor items. They are adorable, and there are hundreds of things to collect. I did take one point off because it does not have a landscape format while playing on Ipad which forces me to hold my Ipad in an awkard and uncomfortable fashion while playing the game. (IE: the images do not detect landscape mode: turning/tilting the ipad horizontally.)

Story:

N/A (There is no story) I was originally going to give this a score of zero out of ten, but that lowered the overall score so severely that it no longer accurately reflected how much I would recommend this game. So I just chose to ommit this category for this review. Just bear in mind there is no story, at all, period.

Concept: 7/10

A fun twist on traditional tetris like games, made more cute with decorating the zoo exhibits and cute animals. The gacha keeps the game fresh and keeps you playing to win new decor items. But overall, it is a simple game, and not overly original, just very cute and addicting.

Gameplay 8/10

This game is very challenging (sometimes frustrating). It gets high marks for gameplay due to the level of skill and speed required. The fact that you can play against real people from all over the world is also fun. There’s always lots of people online playing this game, with over 8 million players worldwide. Therefore there is no downtime or waiting required. It does eventually come to an “end” when you reach level 150, you will unlock your last “exhibit” and not be able to expand beyond that point. I’m only level 33 and have played it for almost 2 years (off/on) so I think that for most people there is plenty to strive for. The gacha system keeps things fresh and keeps you wanting to play again and again. It loses a point or two for me with lack of any real “social” elements. You can add friends and visit their zoos, but you don’t actually have to visit them, you can hit a button that says “visit all” and just collect your rewards and be on your way, so very rarely will anyone other than yourself see all of your cute zoo exhibits. People don’t chat or do much, you can’t trade gacha items for example, or anything else which would increase the need for playing with friends.

Characters: 4/10

There are lots of CUTE characters, but no story or any real value in them beyond the stat boost they give and them being cute.

Music 2/10

Really repetitive music, gets old fast. Also music seems louder in this app than many other games I play.  Grates on your nerves very quickly due to the repetitiveness and volume of the music.

Voiceacting: N/A (no voice acting)

Customization: 10/10

I added this category of customization because I needed to balance out the “negative” aspects of my review to get to a total score that more closely represented how I felt about this game.

Customization is HUGE in this game and is one of the main (only?) reasons to play this game. You get to select your animal, background, and accessory for each of your zoo exhibits. So many cute options here! I love this aspect of the game, and am basing my recommendation for you to check out this game largely on this feature alone.

Total Score:  45 / 70 possible points
