Ahoy my friends! I am so excited to share with you a new collaboration series that I am working on with my little Kitten! Kitten and I have always been huge gamers. Gaming holds a special place in our hearts because it played a pivotal part in how we met all those years ago (that’s a story for another day! *winks*). Suffice to say, I was mega-excited when she told me she wanted to do a collaboration series to showcase TWO of our favorite passions, games AND good food! And thus, our new series was born for the entire month of October – GAMES AND GRUB!
In this collaboration series, Kitten will be writing about the Grub side of things as we tinker around in the kitchen, cooking, tasting and canoodling together as we prepare good food and share the recipe with you all! Meanwhile, I will be posting about the games that Kitten has specifically chosen for me to review. I had no idea coming in what games she has chosen for me, all I know is that I have not tried these games before! So I will be diving in as a fresh player to these games and be giving you my honest review.
And so, without further ado….our first game is:
Title: Kawaii Rainbow Portal (available here on Steam)
This game upon loading up quickly struck me at how colorful it was. From the game logo, to the retro game start menu – I knew Kitten had something fun and silly in store for me when she chose this.
It features a cute little blob, who I have lovingly dubbed “Benny”, just because. Benny is a wannabe super hero who has the power of defying gravity, but can only go up and not sideways at all. Now it is up to you as the player to help Benny achieve his life long dream – to reach space. Seems easy enough right? Don’t be fooled by the cutesy graphics, because in order for Benny to succeed, he has to skillfully navigate through progressively harder rainbow colored portals. The caveat? Benny can only safely pass a portal if it matches the current color he is. Otherwise, the brightly colored portal will happily shred him to pieces if he so much as grazes the wrong color!
This game is very simple to play, click the mouse and your little blob bounces up. Factor in gravity, and you’ll have to keep clicking to keep him going higher. But you have to time it right, click to early and you’ll be sending poor Benny to an untimely death if you touch the wrong color. It’s the type of game that is easy to pick up and learn but is tricky and takes a while to master. I found myself crying out in excitement, shock and triumph as I tried, and re-tried in order to achieve a higher score. The best part is seeing Kitten grinning as I kept trying to push to get a better highscore!
The game is currently $0.99 on Steam so it’s a low investment to get into. It has a huge potential to provide hours of enjoyment. Give it a try and feel free to post your high scores in the comment section! That’s it for me today, friends. Please make sure to check out Kitten’s post about tonight’s dish.
