Just occasionally my kids think that having a blogging mum is more of a bonus than an embarrassment – and when I am sent a “cool awesome” Nintendo 3DS and games to review is one of those times.
Anyone with an iphone or facebook will probably be familiar with the Angry Birds games – this Angry Birds Trilogy for Nintendo 3DS includes the 3 games : Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio.
My 8 year old was soon flying through the levels with skill and accuracy – the graphics were impressive and the challenges as …… challenging! Flinging birds with a catapult to destroy the enemy pigs is ridiculously satisfying and a great waster of time ….. if you get a look in on the DS yourself that is!
A bonus is that there is less pestering to borrow my iphone, and while recently shopping for new carpets, doors and paint, it was great to occupy our off-spring while we debated the difference between 2 similar shades of brown!
Perhaps the only downside is that you can’t have your own “side” for each member of the family, it is really just a 1 player game, but as my son is much more skilled than I am, for me this is a benefit!
I enjoyed the 3D effect most of the time, but occasionally was relieved there was an option to reduce or turn off althogether the 3D-ish-ness.
