Creatures Village Reviewed

Macworld's Game Room recently posted a review of Kutoka Interactive's Creatures Village. Targetted at younger gamers, the game allows players to care for virtual pets called Norns. Teaching and caring for the virtual pets and their eventual offspring is the main focus of this non linear title. The Game Room gave Creatures Village 3 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

The game includes different environments, each with a myriad of 3-D objects that your Norn can interact with. For example, the game room offers a basketball hoop and ball, while the village features domestic animals. By successfully completing certain activities, you’ll win new toys or costumes for your Norns.

The game also features some realistic aspects of the life cycle of a pet. Two Norns can reproduce if they like each other (don’t worry—it’s all very chaste. A simple kiss is all Norns need to mate). The female Norn then lays an egg, producing a new Norn that combines the genetic traits of its parent. You’re then responsible for training that one, too. Norns also grow old and die, ultimately ending up in a graveyard for Norns that have passed on to the big village in the sky.

The entire review can be found at the site listed below.
