[Vita Review] The Quiet Collection: Vacation Vexation
I began reviewing The Quiet Collection earlier this week, and we’re now up to the third game of this 8-bit retro games package. Yesterday, I reviewed Quiet Christmas and today it is time to talk about Vacation Vexation!
Ah, the family seaside vacation. Sun, sand and… annoyances galore. Explore, solve puzzles and play arcade mini-games.
In this third game, the family is out on vacation at the beach! It is time to relax and enjoy the sea, but there are a lot of things that need to be settled before you can rest! For example, the BEST spot at the beach is already taken by that annoying neighbor of yours, so you’ll have to find how to have him leave his spot. Your little brother is still always close, and he’s still cute and a bit annoying!
One of the best features of this game is the inclusion of an arcade with three retro-mini-games called Face Invaders (not Space Invaders!), Badger, and Karate Battle. Getting the high score in each of those fun arcade games even nets you a bronze trophy, so you can get three bronze trophies at the arcade!
The puzzles in Vacation Vexation felt a little bit harder than those from the previous games, and one of the items that needs to be found was in my opinion WAY too hidden Luckily, this was the only drawback in the entire game collection!
The progress in Vacation Vexation can be saved so that you can resume your progress at a later time since this one is longer (it took me about an hour to complete it). Be warned though that after reloading a save, every item that hasn’t been used will be reset to its former location, so you might be surprised to notice that everything is gone. But since the game’s area isn’t large, you can quickly get back the items you need.
