Available On: PC (Steam), PlayStation 4 (Coming soon: Switch)

Biped” is an awkward name for a cute co-op platformer, but it does accurately describe our small robot protagonists. Armed with nothing but their own suction-feet, they’re tasked with solving a series of challenging puzzles. Each level features a rich variety of puzzle designs, but the awkward dual-stick leg controls often lead more to frustration than fun.

Animal Crossing: New Horizon’s First Seasonal Event, Bunny Day, Starts Today

Posted by | News, Switch | No Comments

The seasonal Bunny Day celebration begins today in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Even though it’s called “Bunny Day,” the event itself runs through the next 10 days, ending April 12. Make sure to download the launch day 1.1 patch if you haven’t already to access the event.

A new character will be hiding somewhere on your island, an excited bunny named Zipper. Zipper will explain that painted eggs have been hidden around the island, including in trees, rocks, water (use the fishing pole!) as well as found in floating presents.

You’ll only be able to find a limited number of eggs each day. You can also travel to other islands by purchasing a Nook Miles Ticket, and find eggs on each island.

Eggs are used to craft the unique Bunny Day recipes, including furniture, accessories, and clothes, all with a pastel style. Bunny Day DIY Recipes are also found hidden around the islands. The closer it gets to Bunny Day (April 12) the more recipes Zipper will hide.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available on Nintendo Switch. It’s rated E for Everyone. The Bunny Day event runs from April 1 to April 12.

After designing our characters we’re flown to a tropical island, armed with little more than a tent and some basic tools. We’re already in dept to benevolent landlord Tom Nook, but thankfully everything we do, from catching bugs and fishing to chopping wood and crafting furniture, earns Nook Miles that can be redeemed to upgrade our tent into a house and unlock bigger storage, better tools, and more juicy upgrades to transform our island into a personal paradise.

For our Animal Crossing: New Horizons review, I decided to try something a bit different. The sim life game is particularly kid-friendly, and my daughter happens to be at the perfect age to fall in love with it. After a week, she’s played more than I have. I sat down with her and we talked about what she liked, and didn’t like, about the game.
