(SNAPP Reviews aren’t really a full fledged game review as much as they are just a way for us to give you a quick “heads-up” on whether a certain game is good or not. It usually means that we haven’t finished the game yet, but have played a good enough chunk to know whether it’s worth your time/money or not.)
So, a new game just released on the App Store this week. (I know what you’re going to say already.) Yes, is another game that’s in the whole “Crossy Genre”. I know! I know! I’m sorry! This is like the 3rd one I’ve wrote about recently. This one is different though. I swear!
The game is called, Doona (JunHak Kim) and even though I’ve only sunk about a day or so into it, but I figured it was unique enough to give everyone a heads up about.
There’s not much of a story to Doona. All that’s in the description is,
A little girl Doona.
I have to go on an adventure to practice.
Is the state of the item you have…?
Yea, I’m lost too. All I know is that little Doona has to practice for something.
Anyway, I won’t get into the controls of the game. We all know the crossy-controls by now. What’s cool about Doona is that there is a TON of crafting in it. It’s like a Crossy RPG. During each run, you will be up against hordes of monsters and bosses. You will need to craft weapons in order to kill them. Weapons can be crafted from resources that you collect on each run. Mining boulders get you stone, chopping trees down gets you lumber, and so on.
There are all sorts of weapons, tools, shields, armor, and helmets to craft and even upgrade. Honestly, the developer didn’t do this game justice with such a small description. I’ve played this game quite a bit and still don’t feel like I’ve scratched the surface. Besides the crafting and upgrading, there’s several characters to use, secrets to find, missions to complete, a “Monster Book” with collecting, and even 3 different modes. I know the whole Crossy Genre has been used quite a bit lately, but if you’re not TOO burnt out on it, this one is a hidden gem that should be checked out.
