  • Summary: [WiiWare] The most relevant game features, which make 5 Spots Party so addictive, are the following: For All Ages. Everyone can play. It is fun to play alone or in a group. Fun Photos. The photos are funny and varied, and the players can enjoy their content. Surprising mistakes. We have worked with over 6 different types of errors (shape, size, colour, arrangement, existence and distortion), and we have designed different difficulties. Many of the mistakes used boost the original photo. Number of Photos. The game consists of over 300 photographs of different subjects and types. From landscapes to drawings, as well as everyday shapes or scenes, the variety of the subjects has been a key point in the development of the game. Number of Mistakes. We have worked very hard to ensure a very long playing time and with very little repetition. To do so, we created special algorithms that make it nearly impossible to repeat the same differences in the same photo. The game includes 333 photos and, although we show just 5 differences in each one, internally we have developed up to 10 different mistakes that are displayed on-screen in very different ways. Simplicity. The player controls the game in just a few seconds. We have also designed a variety of features to boost playability. For example, the mistakes can be selected in either the left or right photo, the double cursor was enabled to make it easier to highlight the mistakes, and player aids have been implemented, such as controller vibration when the players are near mistakes.

  1. Once you've been through all the photos, there's no replay value to be had. [Oct 2009, p.89]
  2. 5 Spots Party proposes something different and interesting, and that works. But it quite an important problem as a videogame: its difficulty curve is not progressive.
  3. The lack of any difficulty options and the lacklustre multiplayer mode does not do the game any favours, but for many it could provide a nice little diversion at a low price.
  4. 50
    This kind of activity is best kept in magazines and coloring books for kids, because it doesn't hold enough interest or variety to really stand out in the Wii Shop as more than just a spot filler.
