Shop-n-Spree: Shopping Paradise - Review

Name: Shop-n-Spree: Shopping Paradise
Release Date: 22 August 2012
Developer: Viqua Games


We got overjoyed when we saw Shop-n-Spree 3 available, we simply loved the first two games and found this one as entertaining as the first two! Shop-n-Spree series is one of the best HOG/TM hybrids, the gameplay is also very easy to learn, you basically help customers find the items they want and deliver the items to them, once you finished each day you will receive stars which can use to expand your stores in the future! The developers have added many new features in this sequel, may we say a little too much? New features including many new stations in the shop such as refilling station, gift wrap station, combining items station, but with all the stuff in the shop going on, these three stations do nothing more than cause more confusion, but we would say it's a really nice try from the developers and we're glad to see something new in the game! With the stations being added, there's also an upgrade menu which allow you to upgrade the speed of workers and upgrade the stations by using 'hearts' which you collect at the end of each level! Hidden Object fans may find themselves disappoint because this sequel is more Time Management than its predecessors, you now don't need to search for items sine all items are in groups and not just scattered all over the places. But what really improved is the game's controls, you can now deliver items to the customers in many different ways, you will eventually found your favorite way. For the story aspect, this sequel has a fairly interesting story although nothing really excited and the story doesn't play the main part in the game. The game features over 5 different places, each features about 4-5 shops, so it has a very satisfying length of gameplay! Apart from the main gameplay, you will also get to play several mini games to earn stars and magic boxes. As usual, all mini games are of standard types but they act as a very nice break from the HOG scenes, you can also replay the mini games by clicking on the mini games airship! Graphics and sound are great, the colors are vivid, bright and cheerful, the graphics are also very clear and the music is pleasant! Shop-n-Spree 3 is another great addition to the series, it's a really nice effort from the developers and we're sure that the next game will be even better!
