Confession: I’m a cute phone game junkie. In fact, as much as I love video games, portable systems have always been my favorite. Naturally, I gravitate toward anything cute on the phone and about two months ago (early February) I started playing Fantasy Forest Story by Team Lava. I thought I would be fun to post a review here, so here goes!
Above you can see my (ID: zombukidolls) fantasy forest. The game is similar to Pokemon in that you get adorable animal-esque creatures and level them up to battle. While there is a battleground where you can win rare animals there are also pop-up tournaments about every two weeks where you can win exclusive animals. If you miss them then you might get a pop up to buy them (I confess that I am a sucker and paid actual money to get a Rumblebee).
Above you can see my Ancient Sloth (a battleground prize) fighting a limited Halloween animal. The animals also live in habitats and you can breed them to collect most of the 92 animals that are currently in the game. You can feed them food from your farm to raise them up to level 15, which will help them battle, and as they grow they have four forms: baby, juvenile, adult, and shiny adult.
Team Lava also has seasonal events like Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day where you can unlock limited animals and habitats (very top photo) by breeding and farming. Once you get to a certain level you can win more limited prizes with the whole community and so far the goals have been very attainable.
The game really takes about 5 minutes maybe four times a day so it’s one of those nice time-killing games when you’re stuck in a long line, but it won’t take over your life, which I appreciate. Right now I’m trying to collect all the animals, which has been fun so far. The tournaments, on the other hand, are much harder to beat, if you like a challenge. If you like cutesy phone games like me consider downloading it, the game is free until you start buying animals like me because I have no impulse control.
