And that’s all four games in the collection done! Candy, Please! involves you needing to create various Halloween costumes so you can con your neighbours out of sweets. There’s a new mechanic where you combine items in your wardrobe to create these costumes, and some are easier than others to find the parts for.
It felt a bit longer again than the previous game, but there’s no arcade games this time around, sadly. It’s also a return to the house from the first two games but at least this time you can venture out into the street when off Trick or Treating.
Like the other three games, it’s pretty short, isn’t especially difficult (although a couple of the puzzles had me scratching my head for a while – getting a gun for the cowboy costume for one!).
Vacation Vexation, the third game in the Quiet, Please! series, is a departure from the previous two games for several reasons. Firstly, it’s not set in the same house, meaning new locations and characters. Secondly, it’s quite a bit longer than the other games, and thirdly, there are a few arcade games to play!
The plot this time involves you trying to relax at the beach, but of course things keep interrupting you and actually getting hold of a towel, a parasol and a book to read are proving troublesome.
Probably the best of the games so far, but there’s still one left!
Because the end of May is the traditional time to play Christmas games, right? Quiet Christmas is the sequel to Quiet, Please!, and on the Wii U at least is included in the same collection.
The aim this time is to get your house ready for Christmas, which involves helping your dad fix the heating, making cookies for Father Christmas, and getting rid of carollers. The Anti-Asset Reuse Brigade will be up in arms as the vast majority of the graphics are recycled from the first game, but the puzzles are new so I didn’t see it as a problem.
Quiet, Please! is a quaint little adventure game where you have to silence all the irritating noises around your house before you’re able to go to bed. There’s a lawnmower to stop, your brother to get to bed, a dog to stop barking, and various other sounds to get rid of.
It’s short, not too taxing, but pleasant enough and has nice big chunky pixel graphics. On the Wii U it’s one game in a pack of 4, which at the moment is just £1.79 for the lot, so it’s definitely worth a go.
