It’s the campest game in the world! And that’s before you even open the box! Amazing scenes.
So, needing a break from Assassin’s Creed, that I’ve played rather a lot today, I’ve gone for Something Completely Different. I wasn’t really 100% sure what to expect of Tingle, assuming it’d be some sort of Zelda-lite. Well, it isn’t. So far, it’s been mostly about giving money away to dodgy geezers.
You see, the aim is to earn an unspecified amount of rupees, and chuck them into a pond. To earn rupees, you have to kill things, collect things, cook things, and do things for people. However, to get to talk to people, you mostly have to give them an unspecified amount of rupees. Then, they’ll give you things to do, advice, and sell you things for an unspecified amount of rupees. Sometimes, you’ll sell things to them, for an unspecified number of rupees.
Yes, that is a lot of unspecified numbers of rupees. In fact, so far, the game has been mostly giving people a random amounts of rupees, and often more rupees until they decide to do what you’re after. Guesswork. It would appear that most of the gae is just guessing.
But… I’m still loving it. It’s camp, and it’s great. Um.
