Starlit Adventures REVIEW

Starlit Adventures REVIEW

Description :

In Starlit Adventures, however, everything is peaches, cream, and cotton candy. It’s a jolly action / puzzle game full of fun power-ups, cute enemies, and satisfying gameplay that prompts you to dig tunnels through dirt, sand, and snow. In fact, there’s just one significant problem with Starlit Adventures: The free-to-play formula really doesn’t suit its style of gameplay.

APP DESCRIPTION

The action in Starlit Adventures takes place in levels built around digging. A monster named Nuru stole all the stars from the sky and stuffed them underground. The aforementioned Kikki and his rider, a boy named Bo, must plunge into the planet’s depths and retrieve them.

Each level is vaguely maze-like, and filled with enemies, hazards, and blocks of varying material. Some of this material is soft and delightfully dig-able, like dirt and snow. This stuff is easily bypassed by pressing against it and letting Kikki go to town with his big claws.

Other materials are harder to dig through, including ice, rocks, and metal blocks. You must find alternate ways to deal with these, which can involve pushing them around, or even letting enemies indirectly break or dispose of them.

The controls in Starlit Adventures admittedly take some getting used to. The directional arrows are at the bottom of the screen, and actions are performed by tapping any region above said directional arrows. As a result, it’s quite easy to launch an ill-timed attack when you meant to move. Make sure to pay attention to where you park your fingers.

As you slither around, you collect treasure (for points), stars (three in each level), and even packs of stickers that you can use to fill out an album for additional experience points. As everyone from the age of three through 103 knows, collecting stickers rules.

Even though Starlit Adventures gives you a lot of enemies to outgun and a lot of stuff to collect, it’s a pretty relaxing game. Each maze has multiple paths to the exit, so if you don’t feel like solving some water-based mini-puzzle that provides you with an extra star, you don’t really have to (though you do need a certain amount of stars to unlock new worlds). You can just concentrate on the sheer fun of digging and taking down foes.

Starlit Adventures feels good to play. Its combination of digging, fighting, exploring, and collecting packs a lot of action into its small levels. It’s too bad the experience gets dinged up a bit by the game’s free-to-play trappings.

Some of the panhandling is harmless enough, like a fee for non-essential suits. But there’s also a life system that depletes every time you die and retry a level. Quitting a level or restarting it eats up a life, too. Honestly, the free-to-play “life system” is an ill fit for such a cute and clever action / puzzle game.

The pitches for in-app purchases are kind of eye-rolling, too. On occasion, an icon flies across the screen, and when you tap it, you think you’ll receive a reward for being observant. You get a reward, all right: A discount on a token pack! It’s a one-time offer! Hurry, hurry!

  23. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.


  24. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.


  25. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)


  26. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.


  27. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  30. Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored at work so I decided to check
    out your site on my iphone during lunch break.
    I enjoy the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to take a
    look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my phone
    .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, excellent site!

  32. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.


  33. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I will count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the previous couple of years I’ve settled down to 1 line of players. Why? Because I was happy to find out how well-designed and fun to utilize the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

Why? Because I was happy to find how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.


  35. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  40. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  45. Great items from you, man. I have remember your stuff previous to and you are simply extremely fantastic.

    are stating and the way by which you say it. You are
    making it entertaining and you still care for to keep it smart.
    I can’t wait to learn much more from you. That is actually a tremendous site.
