PAW Patrol The Movie: Adventure City Calls from DRAKHAR STUDIO, and Outright Games is ready for you to go on a mission on Nintendo Switch. As you can probably tell from its name, this is a new PAW Patrol adventure on Nintendo’s console, this time around based on the recent feature film – the first one for the series. You’ll be going up against Mayor Humdinger, who is trying to take over Adventure City. You’ll be exploring locations from the movie as all of your favorite pups, including new city pup Liberty.
Your first mission will have you dealing with the fires that were started from the cheap fireworks used by Mayor Humdinger around the city. For this mission, you’ll be playing as Rubble and Marshall since you’ll have to put out fires and get rid of some obstacles that will be blocking your path.
You will move your pup with the left analog stick, jumping with the B button and interacting with the X button. You can switch between available pups by pressing the Y button. Each pup will have a different ability. To use it, just change into the right pup for the job, enter the colored icon, and press the X button. For example, Rubble will be able to use its powerful drill to destroy some, well, rubble. Just press the X button on his special icon, and then use the left analog stick to move the drill, pressing the B button multiple times to destroy the rubble.
Each level will have a lot of collectibles for you to grab in the form of doggie treats in the shape of the classic bone figure we all know. There will also be other treats shaped like a circle, which are worth more points. For example, the first level has 600 doggie treats for you to collect! There are also three PAW Patrol insignias for you to collect on every stage, so be sure to look everywhere for them! The PAW Patrol icon on the upper right corner of the screen will glow when you’re near an insignia.
Go into the Extras menu, and you can check how many collectibles you’ve unlocked, as well as play the mini-games included in PAW Patrol The Movie: Adventure City Calls. The collectibles include the different vehicles that each pup drives, models for each of the pups, and even a building. As for the mini-games, you will first need to unlock each of the four mini-games during your time with the main game before they’re added to the Extras menu. For example, you can unlock Pup Pup Boogie, for which you’ll have to press the right button when it reaches the green stripe at the top of the screen so that your pup can dance to the rhythm and score as many points as possible.
PAW Patrol The Movie: Adventure City Calls is a fun all-ages game that your young kids are going to enjoy right after seeing the PAW Patrol movie. It’s a linear experience without much of a challenge, but that’s to be expected for a game based on a beloved kids franchise. PAW Patrol The Movie: Adventure City Calls is out on Nintendo Switch with a $39.99 price.
