Number one on my son’s Christmas list are Wii games. He has a few particular games that revolve around those never-aging Mario Brothers, but, for the most part, he would be happy with any Wii game Santa brings. Good thing I have the scoop on one of the funniest and craziest video games the whole family can play:
About the Game:
“Squeeballs Party” features 12 small, furry creatures called Squeeballs that are manufactured on a secret island somewhere in the Pacific. Before the Squeeballs can be sold to children across the world, you put them to the test – to the point of destruction. The game features a unique collection of 11 party games, each taking place in a different environment from lava-filled canyons, bowling alleys and kitchens to science labs and snow-capped mountains. As the game progresses and more challenges are met – each one more difficult than the last – the game showcases more than 150 unique challenges. It’s mischievous antics provide a nice mix of fun and guilty pleasure that both kids and adults will enjoy.
What We Liked:
• Characters: Instead of playing with the regular Mii’s you get fun and crazy Squeeballs like Craboom, Snorgle, fuzz and El Torro (personal favorite).
• Mini-Games: There are so many games and activities, it’s really hard to get bored. You have the option’s of Bowling, Feeding Frenzy, Cannon, Cooking, Crazy Lanes, Painting By Squeeballs, Creature Testing Belt, Pumping, Golf, Shock, and Stampede!
• Easy Navigation: Both my 6 and 7-year-old’s were able to navigate throught menu effortlessly, making it THAT much more fun for the whole family. There are on-screen prompts to help out players that are having difficulty know what to do.
• Challenges: You start off with only a few challenges and as your progress and improve you are able to unlock more, giving players that extra encouragment to “Try, Try, Again”.
• Multi-Player Option: You can play this game by yourself, but who wants to do that?! It’s more fun with multiple players and Squeeballs Party gives you the option to include up to FOUR! Oh, it’s on!
• Game System Variety: We enjoyed playing Squeeballs party on the Nintendo Wii Console, however, you can play on your Nintendo DS/DSlite/DSi and even on your iPhone or iPod touch.
• Difficulty Level: You have the option to choose how difficult you’d like the game to be. My 7-year-old son is a little better at Wii games than my 6-year-old daughter, so this option is a lifesaver when we play as a family. You can even choose how many games per round. There is also a very low learning curve, activities were entertaining yet simple enough for my 6-year-old.
• Budget Friendly: Squeeballs for Nintendo Wii and DS/DSLite/DSi is now dropped to the price of $19.99 this Holiday Season, making it a great gift option without breaking the bank.
Momma Improvements & Suggestions:
• Similarities to other games: With all games, there will be similarites, however, Squeeballs compares to Wii Sports and Wii Party. So, if you’re looking for something “different” this might not be a good option for you. I will say, however, Squeeballs takes it to a whole new level with all the crazy & zany stunts throughout the game. I mean, who DOESN’T want to paint with Squeeball guts?!
• Wii Strap: This, we found out, must be played with the Wii strap secure on one’s wrist. Yup, we had a few Wii Remotes flying towards our TV. Don’t worry there were no injuries to any children, squeeballs, or parents.
• ESRB Rating 10+ (Cartoon Violence): All families are different in what is allowed to be watched and/or played. Squeeballs has a wickedly crazy sense of humor and we found it to be fun, however, some parents might find it a little violent. Squeeballs aren’t sweet puppies being slaughtered by cheese graters, but more over, a made-up, fictional character not of this world, which makes it all the more fun.
All in all, Momma Findings finds Squeeballs Party lots of crazy fun and a nice fit for Family Friendly Gaming this Christmas.
