The Cooking Mama series continues to expand – not only in numerical sequence, but also scope. Look at her, she’s actually camping now! Best of all, Camping Mama: Outdoor Adventures launches today. “But Victor,” you ask. “Does this just mean she’ll be doing nothing but cooking, except outdoors?” The answer is a resounding NO! Let’s have a look at what the press release itself boasts.
Develop your island survival skills with Mama in over 100 different stylus-based games featuring a broad range of challenges: craft a fishing pole to fish, sharpen knives and axes with stones you’ve collected, make a fire to cook shellfish you’ve caught, cook the eggs collected from captured chickens to eat, set up your camping tent to sleep in, construct a net to catch butterflies, and much more! Have fun participating in activities such as rock climbing, swinging on jungle vines, spelunking, rowing a boat, tree climbing, making s’mores and more. With customization options and collectible play, Camping Mama lets everyone go wild in the great outdoors!
Swinging on jungle vines? If you say so, Mama. It sounds like a whole lot of fun – Cooking Mama with a gritty survivalist twist. Really, look at those example tasks – crafting a fishing pole? Sharpening knives and axes with stones? “Captured chickens”? Mama’s gone post-apocalyptic. Here’s hoping the game teaches handy lessons about how to add intimidating metal spikes to the shoulder armor you created out of a truck tire.
