One must applaud Nintendo for the work they have done to the Nintendo 3DS eShop. Offering a variety of attractive software, the eShop has a video game release that will cater to the needs of any gamer.
For those looking to experience a game that defies explanation we give you Mitchell Corporation’s, “Tokyo Crash Mobs.”
“Tokyo Crash Mobs” is a weird, but familiar title. There is a simplistic story told as the game centers on two young female protagonists, Grace and Savannah, who are steadfast at getting to the front of a line and displacing all who stand in their way of doing so. Despite the odd appearance “Tokyo Crash Mobs” expresses, the game is an addicting digital release that will soon takeover your spare time.
Unlike your traditional match-three game, which tasks you to connect colored gems or other objects, “Tokyo Crash Mobs” has you instead match people. The entire point of the game is to get Grace and Savannah to the front of a line – or positioned within the first 10 spots before the time limit expires. To achieve this goal is clear: match the clothing color of three individuals and remove them from the line.
Using the stylus to aim and throw, this control scheme feels natural as you toss people into lines at great haste.
Though a conventional puzzle game in most ways, it is the eccentric delivery that makes “Tokyo Crash Mobs” a standout and satisfying experience. Whether it is rolling or throwing people in line, the core puzzle design is addictive and exciting. To keep the game feeling fresh, new elements are introduced with bombs, line jumpers, and UFOs finding their way into the game to mix things up.
The game can get hectic, but that is part of its unique charm.
When you find yourself finished with the main game there is still plenty of content in which you occupy yourself with. Challenge Mode has you clear an endless line of people as you aim to achieve the highest score possible. For those who enjoy pushing their skills to their limits, this mode offers infinite fun.
“Tokyo Crash Mobs” is a weird game in every aspect. Though game modes are slim and there is not much variation in the overall design, “Tokyo Crash Mobs” remains a fun, zany, and worthwhile investment for anyone looking for a peculiar match-three puzzle game on Nintendo 3DS.
