Using the stylus on the touch screen, players build their own custom
creatures, called "formees." No drawing skills are needed, so players of
all ages can give it a try. Young players can make their creatures from
simple geometric shapes, while players with more artistic abilities can
challenge themselves to create more intricate and detailed creatures.
Then they can customize the color and the look, and add eyes and a
mouth. Players can even add wings to make their creatures fly or giant
bouncy legs to make them hop along. The creative combinations are
Once the formee is assembled, it comes to life and is able to explore
its environment. As players use their characters to investigate their
world, their formees munch on food and lay eggs that can be broken open
to collect coins for buying items or parts. Players can even open a
treasure box and unlock the ability to redesign elements in the game
world. Don't like puffy, white clouds? Make them purple with pink
polka-dots or black and spiky.
The more pictures that a player makes, the larger the game world grows
and the more areas there are to explore. Players will also accumulate
more shapes and formee parts to make even more interesting characters.
For example, wings, wheels and engines can be unlocked, along with fun
accessories like hats and ties.
Formees can explore beyond the world that players create. People who
activate the StreetPass™ feature can also wirelessly swap characters
with other players. Additionally, players can make a QR code of their
creatures and trade or collect them with others.
