My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic for iOS

By: Daisymare Nov 9, 2012 | 2 Comments

This was a difficult game to review, for it looks visually stunning and has excellent audio. Unfortunately Gameloft dropped the ball when they tried to mix the gameplay and the content.

When you load up My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic you are greeted with a very well put together visuals using an excellent 3D graphics engine that captures the look of the ponies and the show very well. The music is an instrumental of the Smile Smile Smile song which is a fan favorite and then transitions into the Find a Pet instrumental which sound very well done. You also notice that the voices are those of the actual Voice Actors from the show which makes you think you are in for a great game that has the full backing of Hasbro and DHX media.

Unfortunately the game is made up of a bunch of repetitive mini games that are designed for 4 year olds. It also relies heavily on in app purchases to acquire money in order to progress. Thus making the game a very poor mix of farmville with bad social networking requirements and just about every other thrown together mini game collection.

Graphics and Graphic Engine is 5/5

Music and Sound is also 5/5

The Gameplay is 2/5

Replayablity is 1/5

Flush it!

My good friend Zorkfox gives his reasons for the games lack of playability below.

I love My Little Pony. The fact that this game is so pretty and cute, and so much like the show, with nice graphics, is the ONLY thing that kept me playing it for the hour or so it took to hit your built-in wall. I’m talking, of course, about Facebook integration. I have no interest in Facebook, and the fact that you FORCE someone to sign into it to spam their friends with invitations means I’m going to have to delete your game instead of enjoying it. Give me the OPTION to share stuff on Facebook, don’t FORCE me. And the Gameloft Live! integration is no picnic, either. I had to try six times before it would let me even create an account.

I really appreciate all the time and effort people put into making this game; it’s cheery and fun, and the use of the show’s voice actors is frankly amazing. But please, remove the stranglehold so every pony can play. I can tell there’s a lot of fan-generated names and content in the game, which means you’re listening to and appreciating us. But the little kids who are ostensibly the target demographic of your show can’t even join Facebook, and the primary demographic for these *ville-style games is women in their 30s, not college-age-and-older males.

And if you wanted to do us another huge favor, you’d remove the in-game purchases and just charge us for the game outright. I would happily pay you $10 for a game where I got to have adventures as various ponies, play lots of DIFFERENT games, and interact with other people playing ponies. The game as it currently stands is just Farmville with ponies: a single-player “experience” that only masquerades as multi-player.

This is a series of development videos for an upcoming game starting at the earliest stages of development. Many aspects of the game may and will change as the code is written but so far it looks pretty cool for another pony fan game.

I just wonder how many of these will be made before Hasbro starts buying up these developers and actually puts them on real big buget projects. Most of the games being made based on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic are turning out to be way better than most indie games based on souly original ideas. 

While I like many of these games It would be nice to see a completely new type of game utalizing the characters from the show in a way that fits the source material.

TEMNO: A New Pony Game Based on Limbo

By: Daisymare Oct 15, 2012 | 2 Comments

Czech Artist Astonov is creating his own version of the hauntingly beautiful Limbo called Temno staring MLP Pyschopath Pinkamena Diane Pie.

I sat down with developer Astonov and talked to him about his game and how he is building it and here are a few things he told me.

First off the entire game is being built inside MMF2 (MultiMedia Fusion 2) from the ground up. All the physics are handled by the software and everything having to do with level design and layout are being done by Astonov.

Astonov himself has no knowledge of programming languages which is why he choose to utilize MMF2. All you need to do is create an active object and select its movement properties.

As for the animations of objects and background art, everything is done in Anime Studio. It allows him to build hand drawn objects and make simple yet fluid animations such as grass blowing in the wind and other atmospheric effects.

There are still issues that need to be worked on. Twilight doesn't yet possess the full animations needed to replicate the character animations seen in Limbo. So far she uses simple platformer movements.

Astonov uses his Nintendo DS and Colors DS drawing app to make the terrain and sky while using Photoshop to create the grass and leaves with custom brushes.

I'll keep track of development and update as Astonov finishes new sections of the game.

Canterlot Gardens is currently going on in Strongsville Ohio this weekend and Dev Team ManeSix is on the scene with a special Canterlot Gardens build of Fighting is Magic for an impromptu fighting tournament.

The link above will take you to the live stream of the game being played as we speak. I was told it will be going on all weekend but have no way of knowing for sure.

The "Tournament" seems to be more of a random grouping of players fighting until defeated than an actual tournament with a leaderboard. 

The big news is that ManeSix is introducing Rainbow Dash in playable form and from I saw she is kicking ass all over the game. This brings the playable count up to 5 characters in the game with Fluttershy being the last one to be added before the games final version and release into the wild. Addictional characters will be released in updates in the future as balancing is improved with each update.

The EVO 2K build was leaked earlier this summer with only 4 playable characters and has since been rebalanced and improved.

No release date for the final version has been posted as of this writing.
