Hello Kitty Carnival
iPad Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Hello Kitty Carnival, developed by Sanrio Digital Europe, is an incredibly addicting new game for iPhone and iPad. Even if you’re not a diehard Hello Kitty fan, you’ll still enjoy playing this fun game.
Concept and Gameplay:
Hello Kitty Carnival allows you to experience the fun and excitement of running your own carnival, complete with every ride you can imagine. From fortunetellers to roller coasters and snack bars, you’re in charge of the whole thing. This doesn’t mean you can sit back and enjoy the rides, though, because your carnival will become very popular with the locals. What does that mean? It means you’ll be breaking a sweat while trying to keep up with everything!
For example, a typical day requires you to serve as many as 50 or more visitors. When a customer shows up, a bubble above their head indicates which ride they’d like to go on. You need to use your finger to drag and drop them on the ride, then tap them to service them. Once the ride is over, they’ll either move to the cash register on their own or they’ll want to check out another ride. You start out with two characters to run the park with the option to purchase more.
As you can imagine, things can get pretty crazy pretty fast. If you manage to keep up with your customers and everyone is satisfied, you can chalk it up to a good day and rake in the money you worked incredibly hard for. However, if you fall behind and the waiting line stretches as far as the eye can see, customers will become frustrated and will eventually leave, resulting in lost revenue and a dent in your reputation.
If you love to play games that allow you to add your own touch as you progress, you’re in for a real treat. As you successfully survive carnival days, you’ll level up and unlock new rides and decorations for your park. You can also upgrade existing rides so customers enjoy them more, adding to the overall fun factor of your carnival. Hello Kitty Carnival even allows you to change the carnival’s theme, keeping things fun and visually exciting.
If you’re a social butterfly, you’ll absolutely love this particular feature. If you’re like me, you hesitate to put a lot of work into a game unless you can show it off to others. Hello Kitty Carnival comes with the ability to show your theme park off to friends via a personalized park ID that other players can use to visit your park. If visitors enjoyed their stay, they can let you know by “liking” your carnival. See? All of that hard work really does pay off!
Hello Kitty Carnival is available to download for free from the App Store and is a universal game. However, there are quite a few in-app purchase options if you would like to buy more coins and tokens.
Hello Kitty Carnival is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
