Shrek has become a family favorite in many households, mine included. And now, Activision Publishing presents the new Shrek Forever After video game, extending the film premise into a more interactive experience for the whole family.
In the game, kids will work to solve a number of puzzles and navigate mazes, tackle enemy armies and explore Shrek’s normal world and his new alternate reality. Available for the Wii, Nintendo DS, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, the Shrek Forever After video game presents numerous challenges that include exploring the various levels, unlocking new areas and earning upgrades. The game can even be a social and collaborative experience allowing kids to invite parents, siblings or friends to choose between Shrek, Fiona, Puss In Boots and Donkey, with each character boasting their own unique set of abilities and skills to help the team move on to the next level.
My daughter was thrilled to share this video with her friends, and since it’s a 4-way player nobody’s left out. Plus, the game is not difficult to navigate, which is crucial to the fun factor.
Shrek, Fiona, Puss In Boots and Donkey unite to battle the evil Rumpelstiltskin. What keeps the game interesting is that there are two realities. In one, Shrek is the charming ogre we know and love. In the other, he’s a stranger to all his friends. Each one of his friends offers a different talent.
And, the fun continues with the Shrek Mad Libs. Like all Mad Libs, you fill in the blank spaces with words that the writer calls out. Then the reader plugs in the words to create a wild story.
