Game Review: Unicorn Princess | Xbox One

Clearly, Unicorn Princess shouldn’t be going to be everybody’s cup of tea, however with two daughters, it was a recreation that caught their eye on the Xbox retailer as there are only a few Princess or Unicorn video games out there.

Unicorn Princess is a straightforward fetch quest recreation that sees Leila, a younger woman, with no backstory and loads of time on her arms, run errands for the handful of individuals across the map. That is achieved by driving to markers world wide to set off quests. Whether or not you’re trying to find misplaced rabbits or delivering messages, a lot of the recreation could have you discovering issues or racing round. Nonetheless, at varied factors within the recreation, you may be known as to the ethereal Dream World through which you meet and trip Unica the rainbow-haired unicorn. The Dream World is in bother, as its guardian has misplaced its three highly effective magical gadgets. All through your adventures, you may be tasked with discovering a sword, protect, and helmet. This stuff are usually not solely scattered across the map, however there are various faux gadgets dotted round to distract you.

If you end up not on fetch quests you may develop your stables to incorporate quite a lot of horses. Every horse must be washed and brushed and every hove must be de-stoned to make sure the horse’s well-being. The quests earn cash so that you can broaden your vary of horses, tack, saddles. Alternatively, you should utilize it to replace your wardrobe. Nonetheless, when within the Dream World you begin out in a brand new pink costume.

To combine up the quests there are additionally ring races that must be gained. In these races, you need to trip round a collection of gates amassing sure colored rings. The right color will enhance the counter and an incorrect ring will lower it.

By trendy requirements, the graphics are nearly “satisfactory”, as an alternative of swaying from side-to-side, the grass really strikes backward and forward (root and all), the fashions are primary and will have been purchased from the unity asset retailer, the voice performing is wood, however works and the controls, while a little bit clunky might have been worse. The sport actually is the minimal viable product, however finally, my daughter performed it for 3 days straight to finish all of the quests and beat the sport. About 4-6 hours in whole for an eight-year-old.

Native multiplayer would have been a incredible addition to this recreation, as each youngsters might have risen round collectively, making up tales, sharing fetch quests, and taking care of their ever-growing secure. Sadly, the sport is sort of restricted in its replayability as all you are able to do is begin the sport once more by shopping for totally different gadgets.

On Steam, this recreation sells for £15, as there are many Princess and horse driving video games to select from. Nonetheless, on Xbox, it’s £35 because it stands virtually alone inside the style. But the sport made my daughters very pleased for per week, as they each labored their manner by the one-player marketing campaign. So in the long run, it was value it.
