What keeps us playing and then coming back for more long after its initial shelf life? It is, after all, what keeps us all playing Super Mario World, Shining Force and even Final Fantasy IV. Enter a cute little game: Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime for the Nintendo DS. This game certainly brings up the question. By all accounts, should a game starring the most adorable monster ever work?
You take control of the monster slime named Rocket, who lives in the tiny 100 slime-strong town of Boingburg in the country of Slimenia. Shortly after the game starts, a group of villains known as the plob destroy the town and kidnap every citizen while Rocket gets thrown aside for being stretched out for playing the "forbidden flute." From there, it is up to Rocket to rescue everyone and stop the plob from ravaging the land. It is not the most original story ever written, but it certainly feels unique. The game has fun with everything, creating puns with item descriptions, events and characters' names. In other words, this is one of those rare games that is properly translated to its region. And it works flawlessly as something from the dialogue will release a chuckle out of you."
