Horrid Henry (DS)
Advantages: Well known tv character; engaging, good longevity
Disadvantages: Well known tv character; engaging, good longevity
Much to my dismay my son loves Horrid Henry so he spent some of his last birthday money on this DS game.
Henry wants to go to the Killer Boy Rats concert and he needs his parents to think he can be good in order to get them (but he doesn't plan to be) and Moody Margaret also wants the tickets so he has her to battle with too along with some other obstacles. Henry has to complete many missions to achieve his goal armed with a range of special skills and equipment. Just like on the TV show and in the books he has at his disposal a double drencher, gross goo, spiders and stink bombs!
There are 40 levels in total and each level has it's own individual mission to complete. You also have to keep a look out for Henry's bear Mr Kill (lovely!) as this will enable you to unlock the bonus level that comes with each set of levels which also has to be completed!
The game is quite easy to navigate and the controls to get henry to run, jump, hide etc. are quite straight forward. You have an energy bar that goes up and down and there are many ways to boost your energy so don't worry. You get rewards (yucky ones) for doing well of course.
Along with Henry and Margaret there are other favourite characters such as Pefect Peter, Mum, Dad and Miss Battle-Axe so if your child is a fan of the show, they are bound to be a fan of this game.
The levels are also timed and you can obtain gold, silver or bronze Gizmos depending on how fast you are! After each level your progress is saved automatically. The downside is that you can quit in the middle of a level as your progress won't be saved, unless you don't mind having to start the level again. Personally I prefer games where they save regularly or you get a choice to save where you want to.
The graphics and music are bright and jaunty and my son tells me that some of the levels are pretty easy whilst some are quite challenging so it has quite good longevity in that they can't race it through it in a day! It has multiple difficulty settings so this can lengthen the game play too depending on what setting you have it. This is also good for younger players who can opt for an easier setting.
This is a three plus game but I think 6-9 is a more appropriate age range. We bought our copy from game for
Naughty fun for mischievious children!
Thanks for reading. x
Summary: Good, unclean fun!
