Gaming Review - Tomodachi Life - Part Two

So Part One of my Tomodachi Life Review showed you what the game looks like, today I'm going to show you how the game works. So to start with you have your own Mii on the game. You are given an apartment within the Mii Apartment block. This is where any Miis you either create or scan into the game first live. Below is a pic of my apartment block at the moment. It starts off slightly smaller than this one and as you introduce more Miis your block gets bigger to house them.

From the pic you can see several bubbles showing over a few of the apartments. They all have different meanings in order for you to interact with your Miis. The black symbol is an indication that there is a problem with your Mii that you need to sort; this can mean they are hungry, they want a bath, they want new clothes, a new apartment, a new hat or they may be ill. When you enter an apartment you find your Mii:

This is my Mii. When you get to this point you and click on the speech bubble the Mii will tell you what they want. The more you make them happy the higher their level rises. On the left of the pic you can see several icons, these represent what you can give your Mii and they are clothes, a new apartment look, a new saying or a song, The present icon at the top also allows you to give them something new.

While in the apartment you will also see the screen below which shows you info on your Mii.

Here you will see my happiness level which is 36. On the left you will see a list showing Really Loves/Loves, Likes and Dislikes/Really Dislikes. This is in reference to what food your Mii likes. Every time you go up a level you can give your Mii a present, this can either be a saying, outfit, apartment look, item or pocket money. If you give them an item it appears in the list at the bottom right of the screen above. You can give them up to 8 items then once they have 8 if you wish to give them something new you will need to swap out something they already have. Above you can also see my stomach, which as you may have guessed shows you how full your Mii is. And below that is a list of who my husband in the game in and my best friend. You do not pick this, it's something that just happens in the game.

While in an apartment you can also see the next screen which shows you how your Mii gets on with the other Islanders:

Miis can become friends and if you really get on, you can become someones special someone. This happens before you get married (yes, miis can get married!). Although you can become someones special friend and then break up! I have also read then you can even get divorced in the game although no one has done that in mine so far.

Now going back to the pic of the Miis' Apartments, the orange bubble can mean that your Mii has fallen out with someone, that they want to make friends with someone, or want to introduce someone to another Mii. The green bubble is an indicator that the mii wants to play with you. There are several games that you can play with your Miis including catch, match, pixel item quiz, mii fact quiz, shadow item quiz, zoom item quiz and wrestling.

They are very simple and quick games to play. If you win the game then you are presented with three boxes; small, medium and large.

Once you pick one you win the item in the box which you can either keep or sell at the pawn shop for funds. If you lose the game then your Mii presents you with either a box of tissues or a roll of toilet roll. Again you can sell these to help build up funds.

The pink bubble with a heart means that the Mii wants to be someones special someone, or if they are already that, then they may want to propose, or if they are already married then they may have decided that they want a baby!!! These stages don't all happen on their own, if someone has decided to propose then they will need your help! The two Miis will appear together and as the one that wants to propose asks questions you need to keep an eye out for what they other Mii is thinking about. When you see them thinking of the other Mii then you need to click on the heart on the bottom screen. It's all about the right timing, the mii needs to be thinking about them in order to say yes. You will need to do this a few times in order to get a successful proposal.

If you get a yes then your Miis will have a wedding and move into a Mii Home together! They still keep their own apartments that they will come and go from but they will live together in the Mii Home. Ill show you a bit more of the Homes in my next post when I show you where I am in the game!

So there are loads of activities that the Islanders can take part in across the island. Some you interact with and some you can just watch. The park has various activities that you can take part in that are scheduled throughout the day:

The flying disc you can throw a frisbee to several Miis, the market is where you can buy an item of clothing at a reduced rate for one day only, the BBQ you can also interact with and the photo shoot is taking pics of you via the 3DS camera ^^.

When you visit the cafe you can come across groups of either boys or girls having a chat. You don't interact but they do say some of the most random things!!

The Amusement Park also has several activities:

The Magic Show includes a few of your Miis participating in the show and does include a bit of interaction.

The Tomodachi Quest is an old school arcade game activity in which several of your Miis fight random enemies which can be as random as a cheeseburger or a teddy bear!

The market is also a good place to pick up items as for 50 coins you get three random items, they can be food, clothing or even apartment styles!

The Fountain is another good place to visit throughout the day. There is a morning market by the fountain, here you can get a random food item. On an evening you can visit to watch your Miis Rap Battling or Word Chain Battling!

The last activity I'm going to tell you about is the Concert Hall. Here you can either sing a solo with a chosen Mii or have a Group Song!! You can give your Mii songs as they go up levels which they can then sing at the concert hall. You can give them Rap, Pop, Heavy Metal to name a few.

Here is me and the Mr rocking out!

These are all just a few of the things you can do in the game, I could keep typing all day telling you all the other bits and pieces you can do! ^^ Tomorrow I will post showing you some of the things I have done in the game so far, including a wedding!! ^^ so make sure you pop by for it!

Catch you late Kawaiisters!! ^^
