A wild RPG appears! Vulpin, I choose yo- oh woops, wrong game. You'll understand the mix-up once you've played the adorable turn-based role playing game by Firequill, Vulpin Adventure. Customize, train, and gear up your own fox-like creature to reclaim the fragments of the precious Star Stone and drive out the enemy monster invasion. No rare candies necessary!
After you've dolled up and named your colorful little buddy, maybe spent some time petting him in the starting area to increase his mood, you do the only thing that can be done with cuddly, cartoon animal creatures... make them fight for their lives! Hover your mouse around the edges of the screen to navigate your Vulpin as you side-scroll through lush forests, icy caverns, and barren deserts. Click on areas of interest to search for loot or to travel to the next zone. Swap spells in the abilities tab before battle to strategize element-based attacks to their full tactical advantage. Winning fights means finding more powerful items or spells and collecting AP to increase your Vulpin's health, strength, defense, and speed. Be sure to keep an eye on your pet's happiness; an unhappy Vulpin means a weaker Vulpin.
What Vulpin Adventure may lack in depth is more than made up for in charm and a fair bit of nostalgia. You're bound to notice the nods made to beloved games of yore, and it's impressive how well this game manages to incorporate those features. Although most of the zones are actually quite short and decidedly on the easy side, it may take you a while to go through them because Vulpins are apparently slower than pangea. Have a bit of patience, however, and you're sure to quickly find a lot to love.
