I actually have had a lot of fun playing the new Monster High Skultimate Roller Maze Wii game, with Maddie (8-years-old) and Noah (5-years-old). In this video game you can play up to 3 players. It does not split the screen into 3 separate screens though. The person playing “first-player” starts the race off and when their energy runs out they select one of the other players to take over for them until their energy runs out. That continues until the race is finished. It promotes teamwork and teaches your child patience lol. It is kind of exciting waiting to see if you are going to be selected next, and you have to be ready. My daughter was playing it with her friends and it took them a little getting used to with having to take turns but they eventually got used to it and were able to enjoy it. In “Relay” mode each player gets a full lap to themselves instead of taking turns within a lap.
Maddie’s favorite part of the game is that the characters each have their own personalized special move. Her favorite character from the Monster High movie and cartoons is Clawdeen wolf, but she likes Frankie Stein best in the Monster High Wii game because, “she’s cute, she’s easy to play, and her special move, ‘Electric Kiss’, is cool.” Maddie said that she wished there were more maps to unlock. There are three different levels of difficulty that give you more maps as the difficulty gets higher. You can unlock and choose from more Monster High characters than is shown on the cover. Monster High characters that are included in the game are: Draculaura, Frankie Stein, Clawdeen Wolf, Lagoona Blue, Abbey Bominable, Rochelle Goyle, Operetta, Robecca Steam, Heath burns, Gil Webber, Deuce Gorgon, and Clawd Wolf. This game also is offered for Nintendo DS. For more info and a video about the game go to http://monsterhighvideogame.com
Aside from reviewing the new Monster High Wii game, I was also able to review two of Mattel’s new Apptivity Monster High figurines for the iPad. We reviewed Frankie Stein and Draculaura. Maddie was really excited to receive all these new Monster High things for her birthday! Maddie says Frankie Stein has cool quests and magnet things stick to her and she turns stuff on and off with her electricity, and Draculaura’s mini games are fun and she likes it when she has to find the little monsters. But she likes Frankie best on this game too. I find that interesting because Frankie is one of her least favorites in the movies and cartoon episodes lol.
