medley, teamwork

fun game swap! ๐ŸŽฎ๐Ÿ’• ft. diamond

hello everyone! welcome back to maggie’s doodles ๐Ÿ’• collabing is a lot of fun, and the one i’m doing with diamond today is an epic one! ๐Ÿ˜

diamond is an incredible blogging friend of mine! she runs two blogs (build-a-bears furever and i have 12% of a plan) and is part of the ltbl team, too. it’s fun to chat with her and discuss and swap creative ideas! i definitely recommend checking out her blogs if you haven’t already ๐Ÿ’–

so she had the idea to exchange 5 free phone games with each other and we’ll review them! so i’ve played her games and i’m chatting about them today, and you can see her reviews of my games on her blog.

let’s get into it!

fun game swap! ๐ŸŽฎ๐Ÿ’•
ft. diamond

the first game is pocket world! i was confused at first, then i quickly caught on, haha. as you can see, on the first level i completed, i did way better than they expected of me ๐Ÿคฃ

from the app icon, i was for some reason expecting a roleplay game, but it’s a puzzle game! it was pretty fun – not my fave game but not horrible either.

unfortunately the game gave me ‘scroll eye,’ which is my “technical” ๐Ÿ˜† term for eye pain after doing an eye-straining activity. so i couldn’t keep playing for as long as i wanted.

rating: 3.7/5 stars!

next is redecor! i LOVE the concept of this game – diamond did you know i love interior design?? ๐Ÿ˜‚

i had a lot of fun designing different rooms! (the three in the collage were some of my faves) there were a few rooms i had to design differently than i would have because i didn’t have enough in-game money for the pattern/texture i wanted. but that made it more interesting!

rating: 3/5 stars!

next i tried animal crossing: pocket camp! there’s quite a bit to it, so they guided me through the whole tutorial haha. i got SO excited when they had me invite goldie over to the home i’m decorating! ๐Ÿ˜ i thought that was so cute!

rating: 3.5/5 stars!

for #4, we got elnea kingdom! GUYS. i can’t wait to spend more time playing this game!! it looks like this huge story-based medieval game (i probably explained that horribly haha)

right now i’m still completing the tutorial. i went fishing, found some berries, and traveled around the city!

i was cracking up over the bulls (cows?) being called Rudders ๐Ÿ˜† like…

rating: 4.8/5 stars!

last but not least, we’re trying nonogram puzzles! let me tell you, this was my first time nonograming. and my brain was BREAKING because i think they assumed everyone knows how to do these puzzles…? i don’t know haha. but my two brain cells started working again after watching a helpful tutorial!

it’s actually kinda fun! i wasn’t expecting it to be after all that mental work lol, but hey it was. and i’m gonna keep playing it and get even better!

rating: 4.6/5 stars!

now a bonus segment… the final judgement ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ”ฅ

will i be playing these games
after this collab?

  • pocket world: no. but it was fun!
  • redecor: no… the round judging system didn’t seem right to me. coming from an offended designer haha
  • animal crossing pocket camp: no; i’m not too into animal crossing personally
  • elnea kingdom: YES! i can’t wait to follow more of the story!
  • nonogram puzzles: oh yeah! imma keep getting better

yaaay this was so fun diamond! and i even got two new games out of it! ๐Ÿ˜‚ hopefully you liked at least a few of mine, we’ll have to see…

thanks for reading!

have you played any
of these games?
what games should
i play next?

  1. YESS THIS WAS SO FUN! Thanks for doing this collab with me!

    So funny storyโ€ฆthatโ€™s not the same Pocket World I played! Apparently the one I had is no longer available on the App Store๐Ÿ˜ข, which is a shame. But it does look kind of similar so maybe theyโ€™re made by the same developers?

    And yesss Elnea Kingdom is really fun! Iโ€™m especially glad you liked that one.

    1. YAAAS! youโ€™re very very welcome!
      ohโ€ฆ! weird; thatโ€™s always a shame ๐Ÿ™ games shouldnโ€™t be allowed to retire. one of my favorite games of ALL TIME was called drive ahead. but they discontinued it on the fire tablets. (i just looked it up to verify the name and IT STILL EXISTS WAT)
      yeah definitely! itโ€™s a cool game
