eShop Guru SheldonRandoms here, and today, I’ve been invited to a party of the chomps by the Chompies in Chompy Chomp Chomp Party. As the title suggests, this is a party game that involves lots of running and chomping, all to become the chompion of the party. I’m going to see if I’ll be breakdancing at the top of the winner’s podium, or will get chomped and be reduced to a pile of goop with my ears and eyeballs floating…..It ain't a party till something gets broken, now let’s chomp!
When you press start on the title screen to join the party, you’re greeted with nine Chompies dancing with party hats on. From here, you can get right into the game if you’ve chomped with the Chompies before, but if someone needs a refresher or is new to the party, they can read up on the basics of Chompy Chomp Chomp Party. Also located here is the settings menu and credits, to find out who the utopia that made a world of chomp in this party sandwich are.
To get around in this party, you’re going to need to master the art of chomp, and depending on which one of three game modes you select, will determine the who, what, where, and why of the chomplay. In chase & chomp, you‘re trying to chase after and chomp the Chompy that matches the same color of the target that’s located under your Chompy’s tiny, yet dancing feet for points, though beware, since they’ll be a chompy trying to chase and chomp ya back, if they do chomp your chompy, you’ll lose points. After chasing and chomping for a short while, eventually, the targets will change color under every Chompies’ feet, and can make a predator Chompy become prey to the predator in an instant. In keep the thing, there is a thing that all Chompies want to keep, however, there is only one of this thing, and sharing isn’t caring here, so you must try to get the thing, and when you do, hold onto it for as long as you while avoiding the open mouths of all the other Chompies to gain points. The 3rd mode is known as zone dash, here, one Chompy is the dasher, and they must dash to zone to zone while avoiding becoming dined to another Chompy, and if a dasher gets dined, that diner will become the dasher and carry on.
To add some sugar and spice to make this party more NOICE, you have the option to rev up power ups across the chompfield. These power ups include items that can help you deal with incoming Chompies by slowing them down or messing with their controls, as well as items that can help boost you away from (or towards) Chompies. Most power up items can be saved to be used when the chomping is juuuust right, and you can remember that you have a powerup to use by the target under your Chompy’s feet becoming more spiky (thankfully it doesn’t pinch their feet), though there are some that can be used as soon as you run into them. Chase & chomp has an exclusive power up item known as the Mega Moogy Sandwhich, which, when eaten with a single chomp, will make your Chompy grow up (literally), and they can chomp at any Chompy to score points, even if the target doesn’t match their colored target.
A party is fun to have when there’s family and friends involved, and in Chompy Chomp Chomp Party, up to nine players can chomp and get chomped locally. A Wii U GamePad, pro controller, classic controller, wii remote, and nunchuk are all supported, though to reach past six or higher players, you’re going to need some spare nunchuks or classic controllers inserted into wii remotes, so that way, the wii remote player and attached accessory are paired to the console as a single player, but in this game, they act as separate players. If you don’t have anybody else to play with for this chompfest, or if you need more chompers on the chompfield, then you can add in some Compy Chompies, which are Cpu controlled Chompies. Compy Chompies In keep the thing and zone dash sometimes would just follow my trail instead of trying to go in different directions and cutting me off like another player would, and because of this, it made avoiding getting chomped more easy on stages that were more rectangular and large.
To keep your inner Chompy wanting to chomp some more, I would recommend trying to get other players to play with you, as this party game was made for bringing those around you together, and to have some fun in the process, that’s what you’re supposed to do at parties, have fun, I had fun even when I looked behind me and got chomped by a giant Chompy, looking at my goopy remains, you’d probably see bubbles in it, caused by laughter, though I am a party animal (literally, I’m a kangaroo) so that’s to be expected.
All & all, Chompy Chomp Chomp Party is a party game you’ll be chomping at for more, especially if you have a room full of friends and/or family. For a quick and easy party game that you can start soon after revving up the game, it gets the job done quite well. If this kangaroo was invited to a Chompies party, I would gladly go, because I know that I would have a blast, even if that means I get chomped a couple of times, it’ll be worth it, because it ain't a party till something gets broken!
I gave Chompy Chomp Chomp Party 8 chomps out of 10.
