RELEASE DATE(S): September 5th, 2013
Spot the Differences: Party! takes you back to your childhood, playing the simple game of looking at two similar photos and finding the slight differences between the two. Packed with over 300 photos containing small alterations, Spot the Differences: Party! will keep you and your friends busy for a few hours.
Sanuk Games has included three different modes into this version of their Spot the Difference series. The single player mode is called ‘Solo Mode’ and has you going alone in a race against the clock to find the minor tweaks in the images. The two multiplayer modes are similar. In one of the modes you find the alterations simultaneously with your opponent and who ever finds the most after the set amount of puzzles that you have decided is the victor. In the alternative versus mode, players take turns finding the differences on the same images.
Spot the Differences definitely works better on an HD machine as compared to the original Wii. The pictures are crystal clear and make it easier to see some of the subtle changes. The controls are as you would expect them and only a few times did I click on the area where their was a difference and it was finicky about the location of the click. The soundtrack is horrific and I recommend playing the game on mute.
For the $5 dollar asking price if you are into puzzle games, specifically of the spotting the differences variety, you can’t really complain about this title. It fulfills its purpose and is pretty fun if you are playing with friends. It won’t be something that has high replay but in short spurts, you will be entertained.
