The German DTP Young Enterainment studio in the last few years has become famous for producing simple titles aimed at animal lovers, especially horses. Creators from Europe created, among others, Horses and ponies: Academy of Horse Riding on PC and My Pet Hotel 2 on DS. This time, their game is on the next Nintendo portable console and allows them to take care of the animals again.
The Whitakers Presents Milton & Friends 3D is based on the same schema as previously released on this platform Nintendogs + Cats. The player creates his charges from among several species of horses and starts to take care of them from a foal. Each creature has slightly different features and requires a slightly different approach, which adds variety to the fun in front of the console screens.
The aim of the players is to take care of the basic needs of a growing horse. Each pet is described in four parameters: the need to eat and drink, the level of cleanliness and well-being. In order to maintain all four indicators at a high level, console owners must feed, stroke, brush, play with them and train. The creators diversified these standard activities using the capabilities of the console. This requires players to use touchscreens, gyros and microphones to get the job done properly. An additional motivation are coins acquired in the playground, which can be exchanged for better equipment and gadgets for the foal.
The title uses the “Street Pass” option and allows you to compare pets in a “beauty contest” to win additional prizes. The AR function allows you to take pictures with your horse on a background of your choice. Newcomers Ellen Whitaker, a representative of Great Britain in jumping over obstacles, introduces into the world of the game.
