Jake and Tess: Finding Monsters Adventure
Intro: Finding Monsters Adventure on Gear VR is a fantastic photo challenge that continues the magical universe of Jake & Tess available on smartphones via Google play. In FMA VR, you become Jake & Tess as they dare each other to take pictures of the funny, cute & mischievous monsters in this immersive experience. Get your Gear VR ready as this unique family experience that takes monster hunting to the next level.
Review: Jake and Tess is an invite to shoot a load of weird and exotic creatures. But not with a gun like most mindless games, this game gives you a camera and “dares” you to capture a range of unusual behaviours and scenes. From something eating a fish, to a whole family of creatures eating the fish, things like that. But of course things are not that simple and it involves having that photographers eye.
While the first few missions and “dares” are pretty simple you soon start to come across situations that require you to take a photo at almost split second speed. But keep trying and you will soon get there. While the gameplay is fun, it is the graphics and animation that really stand out. Everything looks like it has been ripped from Yoshi’s Woolly World and put onto your Gear VR! In fact, the quality of them is so good, I could easily believe Nintendo made it! (They didn’t of course, it was Black River Studios who also made ROCOCO VR).
Verdict: While some people might find having to play the levels over and over to get all the dare stamps rather monotonous, I found it quite fun. Sure it might get annoying in the later levels where the harder goals are located, but for most of the game that is simply not the case. Most people should be able to fly through the first few levels and the controls are pretty easy to get used to. Photographing monsters eating fish has never been so much fun and there really is a whole lot of fun to be found inside this game. Buy it because it looks just as good as any Nintendo game you have ever played, but stay for the addictive (if a little repetitive) gameplay.
