About This Place

First started in late 2007, Kasey's Mobile Game Review (then just a regular feature of Kasey's Korner) started as a simul-post between here and IGN. Later I realized there's no reason to post it twice, when I can use the traffic on my own site. so, here we are, in 2010, and the mobile game industry has grown a bit. What do you think?

Mobile Game Review of "Dress to Impress"

AMA's Dress to Impress isn't really a "game", but more of a wardrobe / fashion sim, with a couple minigames thrown in. It is aimed at girls, and it is a bit hard for me to rate as a guy.

The main game: you need to help a girl get dressed for four photo shoots in different locales (mall, party, dinner, school), and two guys will rate your effort. The better you do in each phase, the more "fashion cash" you earn, and the more "cash" you have available for "shopping" for the wardrobe for the next shoot. You also get to play minigames between shoots which will add a few more fashion cash.

Minigames are basically "move the pieces around to assemble a picture" puzzles, a very simple "shooting gallery", and a "fashion sense quiz". Oh, and there's a "try anything" sandbox mode as well.

And really, there's not much more into this game, if you can call it that.

Visuals are quite good, the different outfits and such go together. Too bad there isn't a 'zoom' function for close-ups, and the various outfit pieces aren't labeled. Music... Forget about it.

All in all, Dress to Impress... isn't much of a game, but it is definitely different. For that, it gets a +1 bonus.

Rating: 7.0 / 10 (includes +1 bonus)
Pros: Interesting subject matter, play dress-up
Cons: Aimed at women gamers, and that's about it
