This past weekend my oldest daughter and I were very busy…. playing Tomodachi Life on the Nintendo 3DS. To be completely honest, I hogged the game until I got a good feel for it and then I let her play, thinking she would probably get bored of it since she can’t read yet and it has a lot of instructions. I was wrong. We are both totally hooked.
Here’s how it works: You create a person which can come from your Mii account or someone new that you design. Then you start their life on an island that only has all the basics. Once you start getting the hang of the game and leveling up, more options on your island are available, like various food options to feed your Tomodashi and clothing. You create new people along the way and hope they get along with each other. Each Tomodachi has a unique personality with traits that you set up and even a voice that you can customize. Once your Tomodachi people take on a life of their own, they may not always agree with you. They have likes and dislikes, just like you and me. Some don’t get along with others, and some will not approve of the clothes you dress them in or the food you feed them. They each have a personal screen which will tell you what they like and don’t like.
There are certain life goals that are set up as well. Your Tomodachi islanders may want to get married and start a family. Some will play mini games with you. No two Tomodachi games are alike, since they are highly personalized. This is one game you won’t want to pass up!
