Niantic, creator of Pokémon Go, presented Peridot, the new pet simulator based on augmented reality technology. We tested this experience with the Moto Edge 30 Ultra company and we tell you everything in our review!
Peridot is now available for smartphones, thanks to nianticthe creators of Pokémon Go, income, Pikmin Bloom and others. It is a parenting simulator in the best style tamagotchi, but with the addition that it is based on augmented reality technology. In it, we can do different activities with our Dotssuch as throwing balls to play with, feeding them, walking with them, doing tricks and more. He Motorbike Edge 30 Ultra He was our ally for the review in which we detailed everything about this game!
I am your faithful friend
With the first thing we come across Peridot It is with the possibility of choosing between three eggs to get our first pet, each one with particular personalities, colors, coats and qualities. Once chosen, the adorable adventure companion hatches and appears, with whom we can begin to interact from the perspective of our camera and augmented reality.
Each action is done through the touch of the cell phone screen with different actions to be carried out. Most of them are accessed through a menu of commands scattered across the screen, but there are others that are carried out by interacting with the environment seen by the camera.
Nothing like going together next to each other
The main objective, as was the case with the tamagotchi, is that our little new friend is happy. This is mainly accomplished by filling up two bars: the food bar and the play bar. These two tasks are achieved from the backpack that we carry and through the use of various foods (sandwiches, seaweed, fruits, leaves, etc., which expire over the days) and balls (tennis, beach, with the design of the ` 80, among others, that break when used). Both types of items are obtained by sending the Dot to excavate a surface just by drawing a circle with the touch (the items vary depending on the terrain, such as earth, vegetation, sand or concrete, for example -yes, recognize the type of place-).
When feeding them, we can also ask them to do tricks, by keeping the food in the center of the screen and following patterns as if it were a lock screen password. Likewise, we can caress them, walk with them (as in Pokémon Go, there are rewards for traveling certain amounts of kilometers a week), look at flowers or trees, greet people or animals (yes, distinguish figures of that type), take photos with the special camera or interact with Habitats (plays the role of Pokémon Go gyms, where we leave these cute beings).
This last point is crucial because it triggers another very particular event: the Hatch-A-Dot. That is, the moment when one Dot visits another and they gestate a baby. For this to happen, you must interact with another player by sending a message through the platform. camp fireexternal to the games of niantic and that serves to organize communities. Once the recipient accepts the invitation, we receive another notification to confirm the action. However, it is mandatory to have a Nest to complete the process (the first one is free, the rest must be bought in the store), with again three eggs to choose from.
Almost all of these tasks gradually raise a growth indicator for our Peridot, which upon completion causes her to go from pup to adolescent and then to adult. In addition, at the same time the level of our profile rises, where new content such as fur patterns or new options is enabled.
As a game, Peridot has several positive aspects. Its gameplay is simple and interactive, with a striking impact of the environment seen on camera and simple controls. It has the seasoning of the passive game, where by being with the app closed we still add kilometers, collect objects, visit places and more. The social aspect is important, with the possibility of adding friends from other titles or through Campfire.
In terms of extra content, there are missions to complete (grants experience for our account), Wishes (helps growth and is something like Dot cravings), rewards for daily connection and the store for microtransactions.
The visual is remarkable, with extremely cute models (even with objects to customize the Dot) and a very good recognition of the area where we are through AR (for example, if we throw a ball it will bounce off surfaces, it distinguishes if we pass near a person or animal, or creature passes behind structures). The auditory accompanies, with relaxing music and sound effects such as purring, blows, the floating of our partner, etc. The vibration completes the experience, so that we feel the interactions even more.
What may be blamed on him is for forcing him to buy Nests in order to breed new Dots.
