hello everyone! welcome back to maggie’s doodles 💕 collabing is a lot of fun, and the one i’m doing with diamond today is an epic one! 😍
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 💖
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! 🎮💕
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 🤣
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” 😆 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?? 😂
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! 😍 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 😆 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 😎🔥

- 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
