[Beyond PlayStation] Cinderella - An Interactive Fairytale Review
Cinderella – An Interactive Fairytale is a new take on a beloved classic that is now out on Nintendo Switch for a new generation. Check out our Cinderella – An Interactive Fairytale review!
Golden Orb has released Cinderella – An Interactive Fairytale on the Nintendo Switch, offering a new take on the classic we all knew when growing up. This is a game that is different from what you and I are used to playing on Nintendoâ€™s hybrid console, but this one is not for you or me, itâ€™s for the little ones in the house. The game presents to us a beautiful and detailed hand-drawn art style that is pleasing to look at, with a look that is both modern and a bit old-school at the same time.
As for the gameplay for Cinderella – An Interactive Fairytale, this one is presented as a point and click experience. In each location to visit, kids will get to click on different objects or characters, and once you click, they will get to learn more about the overall story and each item. There are different puzzles to solve, but none of them are difficult to solve, so the little ones will not feel overwhelmed as they play this interactive fairytale. There are also some short mini-games to play here and there.
Unlike what weâ€™re used to seeing or reading in the story of Cinderella, the so-called ugly sisters are actually pretty in this video game representation. The original story fit with the overall theme and story arc of when Cinderella transforms from a woman that is despised by her step-sisters and step-mother, made to think sheâ€™s ugly and unworthy of attention, into a strong woman who is allowed to let her inner (and outer) beauty shine through.
During your playthrough, you will meet different characters who will aid you on your quest for happiness. This includes a dog you can bond with, as well as other animals, not to mention the Prince himself! There are no branching paths or different dialogue options for you to try, which does mean this is a rather linear experience, but it was designed this way to allow players of all skill levels to experience the entire story.
Cinderella – An Interactive Fairytale is a short game that can be completed in a single afternoon. I liked the game and what it had to offer, with a fun take on the classic we all know while presenting things with a good looking hand-drawn art style. The one complaint I have is that there are no subtitles for the game, which is not good since it could have helped hearing-impaired kids to enjoy this experience.
