38 – Pokemon Rumble Blast (Nintendo 3DS)

In a world populated by wind-up Pokemon toys, you must battle and collect Pokemon while you try to solve the mystery of who is stealing the healing Glowdrops from the Glowdrop Fountain. Heard this before? Yup, it’s the same tedious gameplay from all the other Pokemon Rumble games, though it’s slightly improved from being mobile, cheaper, and not tied to real-life plastics. Gameplay is simple: you take control of a Pokemon and use its one or two moves to attack, defeat, and collect Pokemon and currency in various Pokemon habitats, each with a boss Pokemon at the very end. Difficulty amps up as you go along, and you have a limit on the number of Pokemon you can have, forcing you to release weaker ones as you go along. It’s not a terribly interesting title at all, with repetitive mechanics and dungeons, but the collection aspect is…something, though not a very unique something. Rumble Blast adds nothing new to the gameplay from the original Pokemon Rumble, and its successor, Pokemon Rumble World, is a stronger title on the whole.
