Moshi Monsters Moshlings Theme Park

Fresh out in the stores in Australia, Moshi Monsters Moshlings Theme Park is the anticipated sequel of the DS game which returns gamers to the colourful world of the Moshi Monsters. In essence, Moshi Monsters - Moshlings Theme Park  is a collection of mini-games for the Nintendo 3DS that incorporate the 3D feature of this console to create this colourful title oozing a variety of games.

However with most mini-game titles, not all the games are grade A titles which makes it easy to find your favourites however. Whether it's going down a waterslide, playing air hockey, another variation of whack-a-mole or something more arcade-like like flying through the sky and collecting items, there's plenty of variety in the game but unfortunately they get old a little too fast.

The storyline behind the game is to rebuild the Moshlings Theme Park and to find the missing 60 or so Moshlings who have been scattered through the park. By completing the mini-games, you help free the Moshlings. To an extent, you can even ride some of the rides through the mini-games. Given that, the title is definitely targeting the younger gamer. 

As mentioned, the mini-games range from fun to mediocre with my least favourite game being the pie throwing one. It just feels a little flat. Thankfully not all the games are like this and the air hockey game is actually quite fun on the 3DS, especially with the inclusion of the 3D graphics. The various racing games are also quite fun as you need to adjust your speed as you slide down the slide. A few of the games are also repeated as well.

Controls are well mapped on the 3DS console with the stylus being the main mode of play as you interact with the bottom screen. Apart from playing the mini-games, you have to rebuild the Moshlings Theme Park to its former grand glory. Although not as detailed as something like Roller Coaster Tycoon, it does allow for some basic customisation.

For the majority however, the mini-games are the key to Moshi Monsters as play a variety of games, even kart games which is extremely reminiscent of the classic Pit Stop. From shooting galleries to more whack-a-mole clones, it's all about mini-games. The 3DS version also supports a Streetpass mode which allows you to share Theme Park items with other players. Unfortunately we could not test this feature as we did not have another 3DS console available at the time of testing.

Graphics/Audio

Graphically, Moshi Monsters - Moshlings Theme Park is a very colourful game on the 3DS thanks to the cartoon inspired creatures that are littered in this environment. To compliment the graphics, the sound effects are overtly boppy and cute with the soundtrack supporting this almost Saturday Morning cartoon atmosphere. It may not be the most impressive looking game on the 3DS but the developers have successfully created a unique collection of mini-games on the 3DS.

Final Level

If you're looking for a serious Theme Park Creator, unfortunately Moshi Monsters - Moshlings Theme Park is not that game but if you're a younger gamer looking for a collection of good to mediocre mini-games, than this may be your solution. Also, as the game is targeted at the younger gamer, the value for gameplay feels just right. Unfortunately the title is a little too repetitive for my liking however.
