Today I had the chance to sit down and play through the Captain Toad demo on my sons Nintendo 2DS, and found myself pleasantly supersized and wanting for more. Here are my thoughts and impressions on the short playtime I had with this fun puzzle adventure game.
Now apparently, Captain Toad Treasure Tracker was released all the way back in 2014 for the Nintendo Wii U. This was news to me, as I had literally just heard about this game when the demo popped up on my sons Nintendo 2DS homescreen the other day via Nintendo SpotPass. Obviously when he saw this shiny new present sitting there on his homescreen, he was eager to download it, so his Mom and I allowed the download, and about 20 minutes later he was playing Captain Toad.
At first, he had troubles figuring out how to play the game (he is only four years old, after all). Naturally, the first thing he does is gives the 2DS (which he calls a Game Boy) to Mommy so she can figure out how to play it. So she played for a little bit and ultimately got stuck on the stage where you are fighting some lava dragon monster thing, and she gave up. I asked her what she thought of the game, and her reply was that "it's probably something you would like."
