Penko Park Review
Posted: 8 months ago, last updated 5 weeks ago.
Although you don't control your movement through the world, you interact with nature using your grappling hook to pull things towards you and to inspect what you find. You can unlock different camera modes, such as Ghost-O-Vision, which can allow you to see creatures and areas which you can't normally see.
Penko Park is similar to a Pokemon game in that you travel around the park and discover new monsters to interact with. Each of the monsters in the park has a checklist of pictures you need to take with them in different locations and actions. Unlike Pokemon, this is a calmer experience with no fighting and a pacing you can set for yourself as you walk around the park and take photos of the unusual creatures in various eerie and diverse environments. This game is also more unsettling than Pokemon with darker and creepier monsters, rather than cute and colourful ones.
Skill RatingThis game is enjoyed by 8+ year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity.
You can unlock the ability to stop the cart which enables you to take as much time as you need for pictures.
If you use all your 30 photos and don't get any monster photos you are offered 10 more photos.
Although you don't have to hold buttons very much, there is one action (throwing a ball) you need to hold a button for about half a second.
Generally colourblind friendly and finding a monster turns your crosshair indicator red (and indicates with audio and changed crosshair shape).
