Camping Mama:Outdoor Adventures for Nintendo DS Review!

Video Games are sure to be a big item on your list this holiday season! I have been checking out all sorts of great games for the Nintendo DS and recently got to review the new game Camping Mama!
Based on the best-selling Cooking Mama franchise that has sold more than 8 and a half million units in North America alone, Camping Mama sets players off on an island camping adventure with Mama, Papa and their two children!  You navigate the wilderness, live off the land and master your survival skills to thrive in the great outdoors!

Reverb Inc. hooked me up with a great swag bag to help me with my own Camping Mama adventures as well as a copy of the game to try out!  Inside the cute green back pack I found binoculars, a first aid kit, a water canteen, a really cute travel spork, a flashlight, the goodies to make s'mores and of course my Camping Mama video game! I was super excited to play the game....but first-we had to have s'mores!

They went pretty quick!

Game features:
Explore the camp site and island as you play a mix of stylus-based cooking, crafting, treasure hunting, and action mini-games in the signature Mama format.
• Play through 38 levels with 100 brand new mini games as Mama’s son or daughter with either Mama or Papa on hand to provide guidance.
• Participate in activities including rock climbing, swinging on jungle vines, spelunking, rowing a boat, tree climbing, and more.
• Use items in mini-games to survive in the woods - craft a fishing pole to fish, sharpen knives and axes with stones you’ve collected, make a fire to cook shellfish you’ve caught, cook the eggs collected from captured chickens to eat, set up your camping tent to sleep in, construct a net to catch butterflies, and much more!
• Find treasure that you can use in further adventures, or even to decorate your camp.
• Earn the highest achievement level by creating the rarest and strongest tools.
• Collect insects, fish, treasure, and more, and then survey your collection in your scrap book. Aim to find everything!
• Shake trees and move rocks for access to hard to reach areas that could be filled with treasure or more activities.

I tried the game to see what its all about! The game was super fun, and the mini games are great! I loved the apple catching game-I kept playing it to try to beat my score! It can be really addicting if you let yourself get into it!! The kids have been having a blast playing the game-and I even got them to share!  They just can't seem to put it down! This is a must have game!
