The game you don’t need to buy.

Doodle God is a simple mix and match style game. You take normal elements and try to group them with others. That’s literally all you do. Developed originally by Joybitz LTD and now brought over to the vita by 8Floor LTD this title was originally an IOS/Android app. You start off with just a few select elements in which you can mix together. Some are quite obvious, but others I didn’t understand how anyone would figure out without help.

The game is set up like a book, each element has its own category, all the categories are displayed on the pages of this book. Some elements belong to the same category for example the Fire Category will have Lava and Fire in the same group unlike water which will have it’s own group of elements. To mix elements together you must open two categories and drag one element over to another and see if they mix. If they do you will get a little animation that shows the two elements coming together to make whatever it is that you made.

Doodle God is essentially that which I described above, just over and over and over again. There isn’t much variety in this game. There is moments when you are completely stumped on what needs to be combined, luckily Doodle God does have a hint system. In this hint system you will be given two categories in which it will say two of these elements will make one. This can either help you a ton or just make you more annoyed. It works perfectly it’s just some of the mixing you do makes no sense what so ever. For instance mix sand and life together and it makes seeds. It makes sense a little but I personally would of never thought to mix those together. After a certain point in the game I found myself constantly using the hint button which bored me so much. After you use hint you must wait a certain amount of time to use it again.

If you really enjoy games like this then perhaps it’s worth it, but from my experience I will be avoiding anything like this from now on.

Tyler Olthoff is a 24 year old who has been gaming since he can remember. In love with almost all types of games, the only type he can't stand (and that's probably because he sucks at it) is fighting games. His favorite genres would have to be shooters, RPGs, and adventure games. He owns almost every new system out there including PS4, PS3, XB1, PSVita and the 3DS, but barely plays any of them as it's mainly his good old Vita getting the attention!

    Positives made me laugh. Trophies and no bugs. I played this on iOS and it was terrible. There are lots of other games on the Vita similar priced and millions of times more fun. Good review, sums up my thoughts. We have a new low score on the vita lounge! Which is an achievement I guess!

    • Haha yeah I was struggling to think of anything “good” about the game. My girlfriend laughed when I yelled while trying to mix elements “AT LEAST THERE’S NO BUGS!!!” glad I’m done with this one haha

        The only problem is I’m one of those people who if you tell them not to press the button….I HAVE to press the button. You’ve just told me that DG is “the game you don’t need to buy”. Therefore, I HAvE to pick it up! Gee, thanx Tyler! LOL!!
