As I continue to work on getting posts appropriately scheduled to give you regular content, I intend to make Mondays the blog’s “Review Day!” I’ll review games, toys, websites, tv shows, movies… whatever comes up!
Today, I’m taking a look at Axolochi – a mobile game by Hyperbeard Games.
I’ll start by saying I love Hyperbeard Games. They’ve done a lot of games that I’ve distinctly enjoyed playing: including KleptoCats, Alchademy, and Clawbert.
Axolochi puts you in charge of caring for an axolotl and evolving it through several phases of growth. Eventually, you earn a relic when your axolotl has gotten big and strong enough. At that point, you get a new egg, and the process starts over!
Caring for your axolotl is simple. You can pet your axolotl, feed it, and wash it. Doing those three activities earn you hearts – which bring your friend closer to evolution – and coins – which you can spend on various things.
The game is free-to-play with available in-app purchases. What I love about Axolochi is that the available starter pack is only $4, and it gives you enough coins and pearls (the premium in-game currency) to unlock all the available kinds of food to feed your axolotl and a big chunk of the available egg types. It’s a lot of bang for relatively small buck if you find you enjoy the game after your first couple friends! The game can get rather repetitive, and it’s definitely not for someone looking for a very active game. This is much more a “check-in occasionally” kind of game for a quick burst of cuteness.
