Unicorn Princess DEALS
Having a 5-year-old little girl, she loves unicorns and princesses so when I saw Unicorn Princess, I thought it would be perfect for her to play. You play as Leila, a teenager who apparently lives alone on a farm. She lives not far from a village full of helpless adults who exploit her to do all their busy work, as seen in the first adventure when you are tasked with finding a rabbit that is miles away. The quest giver seems to know exactly where the rabbit is, so gives you the location where to go and find her.
Whilst you are doing this quest, you hear a voice calling your name, over and over again, and once you actually find this voice, you will meet Unica the Unicorn. Unica needs Leila’s help in saving the Dream World. Unica whisks Leila away to Dream World, which is identical to the real world. To save Dream World, you must ride around collecting things. This is the only mechanic this game offers – fetching things.
The game has 15 missions in total, all of which are some variation of a fetch quest. Collecting rings, collecting garbage, pieces of armour, and that’s about it. It claims to have races, but there’s no real timer and all they amount to is collecting more rings. It alternates between the real world and the Dream World, Unica only able to summon you after you’ve helped one of the adults. There is a minor mini game where you can brush and clean your horse, usually after each mission, sometimes halfway though the mission, otherwise your horse will only be able to trot.
One thing I want to touch on is the extreme low budgetness of this game. When you first gain control, it feels like you’re playing a launch PSOne game, the graphics, camera, and controls are that bad. Luckily the riding controls are at least functional versus the on-foot stuff, but it’s just shocking to see this kind of stuff still exists in 2020. The voice acting is at least competent which is almost a detriment because there’s nothing to make you laugh.
However, this is all negated by the games price tag. I paid £29.99, which is about £20.00 higher than it should be for what you’re getting, especially with a game length that is under 5 hours. It's really hard to play this game and not feel scammed which is why I really can’t recommend this game. Unless of course you have a 5-year-old daughter who loves Unicorns and Princesses – then it’s great.
