Darkmatters Review: Frobisher Says

Frobisher Says (PS VITA)

Developed by HoneySlug

Reviewed by Matt Adcock

Frobisher Says ‘screw WarioWare, let’s party - on the PS VITA’ – so crank up the micro game mayhem as you fire up the Playstation VITA which can strut past the limited inputs of the 3DS, wrap you in the loving arms of a fun, free, game which packs a super addictive punch…

Yes Frobisher is basically WarioWare for Sony gamers but it’s more madcap, slightly disturbed and full of gleeful fun that will keep you coming back for more as you work your way up the global leader boards or just try to set a new personal best.

"cake - to - mouth - delivery"

The games themselves are things like driving trains, busting open clams, fighting bears, squashing toffs, winking to make a naked guy dance, saying things into the mic (in different accents) and using the camera to find various coloured items. Slightly more dubious are the inviting friends into your hot-tub (the VITA picks the names of your PSN pals and slaps them onto the various party guests) or smiling at bikini-clad ladies / frowning at dodgy badgers who also try to catch your eye…

"Fan the hot lady"

Frobisher Says certainly outstrips the VITA Welcome Park app – by making the various input methods fun – and there are further adventures to come in the form of micro transaction DLC.

All in all Frobisher Says is a great game collection – one that lasts past the initial novelty factor and is a superb way to introduce the PS VITA to newbies.

Out of a potential 5 you have to go with a Darkmatters:


4 – Frobisher Says ‘buy my game!”

"8 bit classic hot tub action"

More VITA games (from E3) 

"no badgers here..."
