Wednesday, September 9th, 2015

There is such a wonderfully cute roundup of games coming out in the next handful of months before the holidays!  It’s so rare to get happy, colorful, cute games – and there are so, so many of them all happening together in such a short time!  I’m so excited seeing all of them!

*All of the release dates listed here are according to their Amazon listings as of the time of this writing – they may change!

yoshiswoolyworld

Yoshi’s Woolly World

This was first shown at E3 some years back –
for some time it was only known as “Yarn Yoshi!”
But it’s finally coming out in the US on October 16
I’m so excited!  And I can’t wait to play co-op! ^o^
There are so many cute yarn Yoshi designs to unlock and play as, too!
OH!!  And there will be these adorable yarn Yoshi Amiibos!!

Pink Yarn Yoshi Amiibo

I need one!!!

popolocroisstoryofseasons

Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale

Ahhhh this looks so preciousssss!!
Story of Seasons is the current localization name for the Harvest Moon series,
so really, this has the same “Fantasy Harvest Moon” subtitle as Rune Factory!
This PopoloCrois adaptation of Story of Seasons looks like a combination
of Rune Factory and Fantasy Life – my favorite game from last year!
I’m really looking forward to it!

PopoloCrois: Story of Seasons comes out January 5, 2016!

yokaiwatch

Yo-Kai Watch

Yo-Kai Watch is an INCREDIBLE sensation in Japan,
and this is the first installment of it reaching the US!
It will be coming over along with a cartoon on TV
and toys licensed by Hasbro.
I hope it becomes very successful, because it is a wonderful world
filled with kooky Yo-Kai critters that make for an awesomely fun
little monster-collecting, RPG-battling experience!
And the girl hero that you can play as is super cute! n_n

Yo-Kai Watch comes out November 6!!

mocomocofriends

Moco Moco Friends

OK… LOOK AT HOW CUTE THIS IS… THIS IS INSANE!!!
Moco Moco Friends is a monster-collecting and RPG-battling game
much like Yo-Kai Watch, except your player character and all of her friends
are adorable magical witch girls, and their monsters are cuddly plushes!
Really, seriously, this is the Pokemon-like game
that I have been waiting for since the monster genre first emerged.
I can’t believe it took THIS long for a 100% cutesy version of the genre to happen.

Moco Moco Friends comes out November 17!

animalcrossinghappyhomedesigner

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer

After New Leaf was insanely successful,
this spinoff game centered on designing cute homes for your animal neighbors
will be out on September 25!
The options for customizing homes (and the yards outside of them)
are SO HUGELY enhanced – you have to watch videos or trailers
of this game to see it in action, it’s all sooo cuuuute!!

Cute, Fun, and Crazy iOS Games

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

Today’s selection features a variety of genres, but all of them are colorful and cute!

dumplingstothemoon

Dumplings to the Moon

This game draws from Japanese folklore,
relating to bunnies on the moon and Princess Kaguya.
LOOK AT HOW CUTE THAT BUNNY IS!

angeldashhero

Angel Dash Hero!

Okay, I love angels and angelic things,
and the cute critters in this game looked so weird and wonderful,
I had to check it out.  Angel Dash Hero! is a platform action game!
Collect Happy Points to restore the Earth!
I love every aspect of this.

whatsupaliens

What’s Up? Aliens!

Okay, this is just pure, unadulterated craziness and fun.
The aliens are SO cute, and there is a wide variety of them
that you will be capturing and collecting as you search
around the Earth for them.

moonflight

Moon Flight

A very beautifully artsy game featuring an awesome anime protagonist babe.
It’s a jumper action game, but the cool art and actual inclusion of a story
about ruins and witches on the moon make it stand out.

quizrpg

Quiz RPG: The World of Mystic Wiz

The fantasy anime art for this is SOOO BEAUTIFUL!!
Interestingly, you collect cards and do battle by answering various trivia.
Can you face down your friends and enemies with random trivia fact?!?
It’s cool just collecting the awesome art work on all of the cards.

The Most Adorable Pet Games on iOS

Monday, June 29th, 2015

I have featured dating sims and RPGs a lot – let’s give super cute pet-raising sims a chance in the spotlight!  The selection here is various in terms of how much “raising simulation” you’re allowed.  Some are very ‘sit back and watch’-y and others are very much into the stat-raising to grow into different pets.  I figured I’d cover different types so that everyone could pick a type that they’d enjoy playing!

nekoatsume

Nekoatsume

Although this game is in Japanese, it is simple and intuitive to play
so you can pick it up and play right away!
You decorate your room space with cat toys, then close the app.
When you return later, cute kitties will have shown up,
which you can take pictures of to fill up your albums!
It becomes a fun game of switching up what toys you have out
to see all of the different and rare cats,
and photographing each of them to remember their cute poses forever.

afrocat

AfroCat

Because you can never, ever have too many cute kitty games.
In this one, the cat that you raise grows various different kinds of hairstyles
based on its level, what toys you have it play with, and how much wool
you’ve collected from a herd of sheep you also apparently own.
It’s adorable, don’t question it.

Personally, I love the soft pastel color palette AfroCat uses!

kokeo

Koke-O

Another super kawaii game with a sweet, soft color palette~
In Koke-O, you raise a moss ball by choosing a food item to start with
(choosing no item is also an option) and watering it.
The pets grow quickly – within minutes –
so the fun comes from trying different combinations of starting items
and how much water you give it.
There is also a decoration mode where you take photos of your moss ball pet
along with different backgrounds and stickers – they would make
cute wallpaper backgrounds for your phone!

fairydoll

Fairy Doll

If this one looks familiar, it’s because I wrote an entire feature
for it because I so quickly became so enamored with it when I played!
This might be the most ‘stat-raise’-y of all of the games here,
where your objectives are to work toward different personality types
for your Fairy Doll and collect lots of cute outfits.
What’s most pleasing about it is
how much content is available for free players!

mandrakegirls

Mandrake Girls

Featuring a moe anime style like Fairy Doll,
this time the cutie pies you are raising are adorable plant girls!
If there’s anything I love as much as fairies, it’s flowers,
so the theme and setting of this game is SO EXCITING to see!
Now, if there were an anime bunny-raising sim out there,
I would be pretty much set for life.

Extremely Kawaii Fairy-Raising Dress-Up Game, Fairy Doll!

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

Okay, I just discovered this game today while searching for other games to feature, and I fell so deeply in love with it I am going to give it its own feature rather than listing it among others~

Fairy Doll on iTunes!

fairydoll1

A cute cinematic at the beginning of the game details that fairies came to the human world, but many people could not see or interact with them.  So, fairies took the form of dolls, so that they could live among people.

You get to name your personal Fairy Doll as well as input a name for yourself as well.  None of the pronouns are gendered, so you are allowed to imagine yourself as any gender.  And while all of the customization options for your Fairy Dolls are feminine in appearance, again, there are no gendered terms used, so you are allowed to think of your Fairy Doll as any gender as well~

fairydoll2

Gameplay is mainly in the form of doing Work and Study tasks to increase certain personality traits for your Fairy Doll.  It is a bit like Princess Maker in that regard.  However, you are allowed to look at what the requirements are for each of the target personalities, so you are free to see beforehand what personality stats you need to be building toward and schedule your Work and Study tasks accordingly.

fairydoll3

Additionally, Fairy Dolls have not one, but two personalities – one to act as their main type, and the other to be a secondary one.  I am working on making mine a Sweet Angel, so she needs a ton of Kindness!  Other personalities include Tomboy, Tsundere, Cool, Gentle, Demon, Princess, Warrior, and Yandere, among others.  You are even allowed a preview of what kind of dialog your Fairy Doll will use when they are attributed to any of those personalities!

fairydoll4

Fairy Dolls talk a lot, not only specifically in conversation when you choose to chat with them in their room, but they will also comment on whatever tasks you are currently working on.  A lot of the dialog is cute, cheerful, encouraging words!  It just feels really good and happy to be playing this. Such a good feel-good, pick-me-up game!

fairydoll5

The game is free to download and it seems that it is very generous about rewarding you with currency, outfits, accessories, and upgrades, without requiring you to put real-currency investment into it, but the option is there if you choose to.  I am surprised by the customization options available for free and after only playing it for a short amount of time today!  I’m pleased with the presentation of my cute pink-haired Fairy Doll in a frilly fantasy maid outfit, surrounded by flowers and magical mushrooms – which is a goal that would almost certainly require days of grinding or shelling out for premium items in other mobile games.  And several gacha items are available every day, too – and I’ve managed to get some valuable, cute items from them, not just junk!

That’s about all I have to write up about Fairy Doll for now~  I’m enjoying it, it’s just so cute!  It’s really exciting seeing adorable anime fantasy fairies in the itunes marketplace, and the fact that it’s actually a decent game experience is sugary sweet icing on the cake.

Do look into Fairy Doll on iTunes if you are as smitten with this cuteness as I am!
