Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Camping Mama: Outdoor Adventures is the latest in the successful "Mama" franchise of mini-game compilations. This time, the mini-games take place outside at an exciting camp site. Players can fish, swim, climb rocks, and swing on vines with the use of simple, accessible controls. The mini-games test hand-eye coordination and as well as how fast the player is able to respond. In some of the mini-games, players can bump into things or hurt themselves if they make a mistake, but it's always in a cartoon fashion and not at all a focal point of the game.
What's it about?
CAMPING MAMA: OUTDOOR ADVENTURES lets players explore a camp site filled with all sorts of activities. The variety of mini-games is vast and includes outdoor themes like spelunking, fishing, and rock climbing. Unlike previous "Mama" games, this one has a bit more structure to it in that players complete each mini-game in order to unlock new areas of the camp site. There are also things to do around the camp itself, like collect treasure and interact with other characters.
Is it any good?
Camping Mama: Outdoor Adventures follows in the footsteps of the fun and successful Cooking Mama titles with simple yet addicting mini-games. This set of games are all themed on outdoor/camping activities but the same formula of tapping and sliding the stylus on the touchscreen to correspond to on-screen commands is still here. The mini-games do a terrific job of finding the perfect balance of easy but challenging, which makes players want to play them over and over again. The treasure collecting aspect of the game is also a fun diversion and gives players something to do if they want to take a break from the mini-games. In short, this game is a lot of fun for casual gamers, and is suitable for Cooking Mama veterans and novices alike.
