    For the right customer, Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party will be a lot of fun. For people who want a substantial videogame, though, save the money.

    No good for loners, but if you have seven chums you don't mind rubbing against, this is ace. [Nov 2013, p.73]

    In a festive atmosphere, it’s a reasonable option to have fun and be satisfied.

    It’s certainly a game you’ll get more enjoyment from with the maximum number of allowed players, and if you and your friends are extroverted and feel incredibly comfortable around each other (or have a stash of strong alcohol nearby), then for the price of entry (£5.99) this is an absolutely great party game that gives a shining glimpse of what can be done with the Wii U if a bit of thought is put into it.

    If some activities are variants on familiar parlour games, they’re enlivened by creative twists and side objectives, while others are brimming with invention.

    If you’re looking for an affordable and fun game to pull out during a party, then Spin The Bottle: Bumpie’s Party will definitely provide a great deal of laughter and fun.

    The game has been developed with a Nordic culture in mind, but no matter where you live, you'll find here several minigames and challenges that we've enjoyed playing with friends and family.

    In many ways the best game on the Wii U so far, at least in terms of using the GamePad for something other consoles would find very hard to replicate.
  9. Nintendo keeps promising us new ways to play on Wii U and we can't help but feel KnapNok might have got there first. There's nothing else quite like this.

    Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party is not a game per se, but a fun multiplayer experience in its own right.

    Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party is a party game for 2-8 players, there is no single player and the more players you have the more fun the game will be. The game suggests that you turn off the TV and gather around the Gamepad which is placed flat in the middle of the group like a board game. I think this may be the first console game in history that instructs you to turn your television off, you know right from that point that this game is going to be a little different.

    Players take turns spinning a virtual bottle and are paired up with another player in order to do some sort of collaborative challenge. Some of the challenges we faced in our game were to lay out four Wii Remotes and listen for which one made a particular noise, holding the controllers while hugging each other and jumping together at a certain moment, and pressing the A & B buttons on a controller at the same time without the players using their hands.

    Sound silly? You bet it does but it is also an amazingly creative and quirky little title that shows off some unique aspects of the system which can only be done on the Wii U. The graphics for the game are really unique and contribute to the irrelevant feeling of the mini games, of which there are seventeen different challenges. That is not a lot but the publisher promises addition free DLC games in the future if the game is successful enough.

    Playing the game with two or three people is not the way to apprach this game, if you have any fewer then four players then I would not even bother. It is the element of being randomly teamed-up with someone that adds a lot to the game, the more players who are watching you doing the silly challenges the funnier it gets. Is the game for everyone? Most assuradly not, but for those who can get a group of people together for a game night is it a charming and enjoyable way to spend a couple hours.

    Great game for get togethers. There are 1 or 2 games that you might feel uncomfortable playing (depending on who you're playing with), but that's not a problem because you can go into settings and tell it not to use those games.
    We've had a lot of fun playing with our kids.

    I bought this on sale (I think it was only like 2 or 3 bucks) and dont regret it at all. Its a total blast to play. You can disable certain games if you dont feel comfortable doing some of them (like dancing with your friends wife). Overall a lot of fun. Some of the games are pretty confusing, but there is an option to practice before you actually do it. Obviously, the more people the better. 8 people playing will be a lot more fun than just 2. Definitely purchase if youre interested in a fun party game or something to play with the kids on family night. Full Review »
