Club Penguin Game Day | Disney Interactive Studios
Someone is bouncing off the wall with excitement because Club Penguin Game Day has arrived at our house! Not only does Donovan (my soon to be 7 year old) get to play for hours on end, he also gets to help me review the game here on my blog.
Club Penguin Game Day, released in Sept 2010, is a series of party games for the Wii and Nintendo DS based on Disney's popular online game, Club Penguin. The game can be played in single player mode or with up to 4 people at a time. Players are able to customize their penguins and compete in challenges such as Java Sack, Bean Balance, Fast Freeze, Sled & Slide and Sumo Smash. Players attempt to conquer as much territory as possible and are rewarded by earning coins and other items as well as unlocking other challenges.
What I like most about this game (and other Disney Interactive Studio games) is its easy start up. Playing was as simple as putting the game in the console, creating a character, and chosing a challenge. Each challenge has a "learn" button. Click on it and the instructions are broken down into 4 basic steps. Some challenges include "advanced" instructions for more in depth play.
Donovan liked playing the games because "they're fun". I asked him which challenge was his favorite and his response was "every single game".
Disclosure: I received a copy of this game for review. The opinions here are 100% mine and my son Donovan's, who's the video game "expert" in our house.
Thanks for stopping by today!
