It delivers what it promises, along with a bit of an odd narrative, but the prevalence of pushing DLC is embarrassing
I’ll admit, when I got the code for a game revolving around paper dolls I wasn’t exactly enthusiastic. While I have played with them with my daughters in the past it seemed a bit too simple an idea for its own good. It roughly plays out as you’d expect, with you going through a limited number of outfits, accessories, and even some wigs to outfit your cutout model for different sorts of occasions. To the credit of the developer they at least try to make it a bit more interesting by moving along a simple narrative to go with what you’re doing, at times injecting a little humor, though if this may be intended more for kids the sensibilities don’t always seem consistent with that. My main gripe though is that as basic as the game’s design is there aren’t enough options to choose from and, worse, in pretty well every case there’s some DLC being pushed to give you one or two more options above what usually feels like the bare minimum of options. It doesn’t have to be groundbreaking but it would have been nice to see a bit more effort and variety to justify people getting it.
