Ok game, but wait for a price drop,
This review is from: Little Deviants - PlayStation Vita (Video Game)
I got this game bundled with my purchase of my PlayStation Vita First Edition Bundle. I'd lump Little Deviants in the same genre as games like Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, and Doodle Jump; they're entertaining for a while, but you'll get bored with them rather quickly. It's the kind of game you play to kill a little time.
Little Deviants is a collection of 30 mini-games and it does a decent job of showing off what the Vita is capable of. Throughout your game play you'll use almost all of the the Vita's various input methods including the touch screen, the rear touch pad, motion controls, the rear camera, the shoulder buttons, and there was even a mini game that requires you to hum into the mic. However, it does not use the analog stick, the directional buttons or the action buttons.
Some of the mini-games are more fun than others and there is a good variety of them, but some of them are a bit repetitive and you'll see various iterations of them with the only real difference being the scenery and the level of difficulty. There isn't much of a story line to tie together the mini-games either.
The game play is fairly easy, children should be able to achieve at least bronze status in most of the mini-games to unlock the next mini-game level without getting too frustrated. I was able to achieve silver status in most of the levels easily, but it'll probably be harder for a child. Gold status is a bit more of a challenge to achieve in all the levels, and I'd work towards that if I wasn't already bored with the game. Someday when I'm looking to kill a little time I might pop Little Deviants back into my Vita and try to get gold status on all the levels.
If you're someone that likes collecting trophies, Little Deviants offers 55 of them. You should be able to unlock quite a few of them playing through all the mini-games once. I played the game once through and then replayed a handful or so of the mini-games and I was able to unlock 47% of the trophies through my game play. If you like trophy collecting they should add some replay value to the game trying to unlock all the rest of them.
Overall I think the game is pretty decent and can be a fun way to kill some time. But if you're interested in it I suggest waiting for a price drop of at least $10-$15 or picking up a use copy. I don't feel that it's worth the $29.99 price tag that its being sold for right now.
