My Little Pony: A city builder that kids (and adults) will go gaga over
The breakout hit of a kids show (or adults show, depending on who you ask) has a game that's about to land on iOS and Android. Based on our hands-on sneak peek recently, mega fans of the show are in for a treat, but be forewarned: First and foremost, this is a mobile game that's designed with kids in mind.
Like most mobile social games, that's the play loop in a nutshell. But to debunk that assumption, Gameloft threw in a series of mini games to challenge players' reflexes and other skills. Some buildings, when finished, will unlock a new mini game to play in addition to a coveted new pony. Goofy, adorable diversions like a Jetpack Joyride-esque flying game and one in which players collect falling apples provide more to players than precious coin and ways to show off their skills to friends.
When players eventually grow tired of bouncing a digital ball around, they can visit friends to see how adorable their Ponyvilles are. The whole "adorable" thing bears repeating. For someone who isn't a super fan, My Little Pony will be a cute overload complete with nauseating (but official) voice acting. If you can stomach the overbearing cuteness of it all, and chances are you probably embrace it, My Little Pony on iOS looks to be a treat that has great respect for the revived franchise.
