Just a while ago I had the pleasure of trying The Trash Pack Nintendo DS video game. The Trash Pack are a distinctive toyline full of squishy little rotten foods, dirty gym socks, creepy looking animals and much more. If you or your child are familiar with these toys you might want to take a try at the game.
The Trash Pack The GROSS GANG In Your GARBAGE was released Oct. 30 2012. Preferably for 1 player, this game is rated E for everyone and published by Activision made for Nintendo DS only.
This game doesn’t have much of a plot to it, it’s just a bunch of mini games. The plot to it, if any, is playing the mini games to collect all 160 of the Trash Pack characters.
You can play as 30 of the most popular Trash Pack characters. Foul Nugget, Waste Wolf, Sludge Can, Bin Scab Beetle and much more.
The Trash Catch is one of the 4 unique games to play. In this section there is a garbage truck on the screen and you use the arrow pad on the game system to move it back and forth, as garbage falls from the sky you try to catch it in your truck. The further you survive and keep catching garbage the setting changes, and you level up.
At first I wasn’t sure how to move the truck, I thought you’d use the stylus and touch the screen to move the truck. But after pressing all the buttons(lol) I finally figured it out, but didn’t get very far.
The Trash Smash is another game of the 4. In this game you use the touch screen to throw a Trashie at the garbage hanging from the claws over the garbage cans. The more garbage you get into the cans the more points you get and the higher you level up. As you move on in the game the claws holding the garbage starting moving up and down, left to right which makes it hard to hit.
The first few tries from throwing the Trashie weren’t quite successful. But after a few minutes I got the hang of it, until the claws started moving, I was thinking what is this BLACK MAGIC?! Haha. I didn’t level up far in that game.
The Trash Toss is also another mini game out of the 4. In this game you also have to throw Trashies, but in this one you throw a Trashie and try to hit a Target above a trash can. In the first few levels you had to throw like 5, 10, or 15 Trashies in the trash can with in 1-2 minutes. When you reach your goal you level up more, the more you level up the more Trashies you have to throw with little time. Also, the further you get the more trash cans, or dumpsters to throw in.
This game was challenging. It took strategy to make the Trashies in the trash can, you couldn’t swipe your stylus to fast or to slow, just the right speed would make the Trashie in. At first it was quite aggravating. But I got the hang of it.
The last game of the 4 was Trash Attack. Here, you are a Trashie and you have to dodge the trash that is bouncing out of the dumpster in the left and right of you. There are colored cans that come out as well, collecting those will give you points. Just like the other games, you level up and the setting changes the farther you get in the game.
This game was mutual. It wasn’t hard, but it wasn’t that easy either.
All in all the game’s graphics with its bright colors were very appealing. The music was nice and it grabbed my attention, the funny noises that the Trashies made when they were hit by something was quite amusing. I had fun playing these games whether I was good at it or not. But what I don’t get is that my younger son plays it and does a better job at the games than me. Altogether after playing it for about 20 minutes he collected like 40-50 Trashies. Which is ridiculous, I played it for days and didn’t collect that many Trashies, let alone 14 at the most. Lol
Disclosure I received The Trash Pack from Activision in exchange for an honest review. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I or use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
