Smilie Waluigi Freakyforms: Your Creations, Alive!




This is a perfect example of what Nintendo does best: creating a
game with an innocent (and debatably 'childish') concept, but making
it appeal to kids and grownups alike. Freakyforms invites you to
create a character, give it a name, voice and a favourite phrase, and
send it to wander around a meadow on the planet you named before
making your 'formee'. Unfortunately, I made the unwise decision of
calling my planet "Greg".



As you explore the meadow, you'll eat food from the trees (which you
create yourself), grab bonuses from houses (which you create
yourself) and accept challenges from other formees (which you can
create yourself). These challenges range from the mundane (deliver a
parcel, collect gems) to the intriguing (find a hidden block) and the
questionable (eat enough food to create a... wait for it... 'golden
poop'.)



None are particularly challenging, although it can get frustrating when
you meet a formee with 10 seconds to go on your time limit and are
offered a poop challenge. Also, the tasks can definitely become a bit
repetitive after a while, even after you open up new areas to explore.
But the adventuring isn't what the game is all about. Freakyforms is
all about creation, and walking around the meadow or swimming in
the ocean is just an excuse to unlock more bits of scenery to create,
or parts for more formees. Something new is unlocked with every five
formees you make, too.

It's difficult not to create formees that look like your favourite video
game characters, and its surprising what you can make with a little
manipulation. There's a plethora of parts that you can use for your
formees, including fins and flippers, wings and propellers, and tyres
and engines, all which actually take on practical value. And if you're
lacking in imagination or inspiration, you can take on a 'creation
challenge' in which you are given a silhouette of a formee and have to
create a creature that matches its description and shape.


I'll make a thread full of these.

The game also includes a QR code reader, so you can upload the
codes of your creations on the Internet for everyone and everyone to
bring your personal formee into their planet. It's always fun looking
online to see what creatures that people have made, varying from
mermaids and griffins, to the Turrets from Portal and the AT-ATs from
Star Wars. Freakyforms really (wait for it...) comes alive (*badum-
tish*) when you unlock the AR mode, so you can take photos of your
formees (as well as your created houses, trees, clouds, plants, hills,
etc) in real-life situations and environments.

Freakyforms: Your Creations, Alive! really is packed with content and
is great value on the Nintendo eShop. It's a superbly conceived and
endlessly amusing creative tool: just don't expect a deep adventure.
