ANIMAL CROSSING: HAPPY HOME DESIGNER
Tonight, on My Talented Master Kitchen Renovation Block Rules
Nintendo’s penchant for all things
plumber’s crack comes to the fore once again, as you do the tradie
thing for the good denizens of Animal Crossing – and to line your
own pockets, of course. This isn’t your typical Animal Crossing
game though, so no fish for dinner. Trou- erm, pout!
Mario isn’t Nintendo’s only superstar tradesman, as you become a
master decorator – complete with apprentice Lottie to boss around,
although really she’s showing you the ropes. Under the employ of
Nook’s Homes you attend to the decorating whims of various
villagers. Animal Crossing being the place that it is, these desires
are generally bright – and more often than not fluffy.
Basically an expansion of the building elements of the main
Animal Crossing outings, you variously choose land for your
client, get erection crazy then go creative with carpet, wall
coverings, furniture and such. Your customers aren’t particularly
demanding, so if you haven’t the greatest eye for décor then you
won’t be unduly penalised – just make sure to include the handful of
bits and pieces that they demand. Various themes can be raided to
ensure that they’re happy little customers, and the more of those
that you gain, the more stuff you get to decorate with.
course the customisation stretches to your very own self, from looks
to fashionable (or not) attire. Once again, more stuff to play with
unlocks the further you progress in your quest to tsjuz up the town.
Much more limited than usual Animal Crossing games –
basically a plushie Sims - if we were cynical we’d suggest
that Happy Home Designer was just an excuse to market the
new separately sold amiibo cards – and the raft of also separately
sold Animal Crossing amiibos...
But it’s hard being
cynical when it’s so FLUFFY!
