Gaming Progress: Overdue Edition
May 26, 2015

It's been a while since I've had time to report on my progress, so here it is:

Tiki Towers - Wii

I got about halfway through the campaign and gave up.

What is Tiki Towers? Think of World of Goo, except every objective and stipulation is exactly the same. Using monkeys, you have to build a bamboo structure upon which they can climb to reach a particular destination. Occasionally, a witch doctor utilizes magic to transform some of your poles into rubber or even sends a fireball to destroy one. The game doesn't evolve much, the difficulty rating doesn't seem to climb noticeably, and you basically are stuck using the same basic trigonometry concepts to build towers and bridges time and again. The only difference you will see from one level to the next lies in the length of time required to complete the given task. If you think of it from a mathematics perspective, it's akin to writing a test with increasingly longer equations, all of which result in the same answer.

Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light - DS

I think I might be about halfway through. I've gotten out of the animal town (name forgotten), guided three of the four characters to the floating city (also forgotten), and am currently attempting to climb a tower with Yunita. Apparently I need some rainbow shoes, so I have to exit the dungeon and find them.

I'm still digging the game, and my observations of it haven't changed much since my last post regarding this title. It's really not an especially challenging RPG--though some areas can really get you if you aren't careful--but it is a breezy, relaxing title.

The only other game I have to report on is Puzzle & Dragons, which I was nearly forced to quit. My phone, which had my PAD account in it, broke. Thankfully, I was able to apply for a one-time data restoration and thus moved my account to my Nook HD.

Currently, I can't advance because I need to improve my teams. I've been saving up magic stones so I can hopefully get some useful gods from Godfest, but I've only managed to receive some middling ones like Perseus. I did, however, get my hands on the dark Metatron and the dragon Nirai Kanai, both of which I have since evolved into their ultimate forms and will be putting in my main party (and other squads) once I have enough team points. I also plan to attempt the Athena Descended dungeon once it drops at midnight tonight, so that would be a third creature for me to try to place in my main party, and yet another boost in team cost that I'll have to work towards.

Other than that, I've been playing Brave Frontier, which is very similar to PAD and Monster Strike, but with more of an old school Final Fantasy feel.

I play Monster-Strike daily and just got the Ancient Smydra today (you know the one, if you're actively playing). Yes! I also spent almost the entire weekend playing Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition instead of The Witcher 3: High Hunt. I am blessed right now with access to a couple of great games that I really enjoy playing. I hope to review both of them as soon as I can get through them... which could be a while.

I've been out of Monster Strike for a bit, since I lost my account there. I did restart the game today, though, so here's hoping I surpass my prior playthrough.

*looks up Smydra*

Oh... Wow.
