Catwalk Countdown - The devil wears Prada sequel?

It has been quite a long time since I reviewed any games, so here is review on this fun and not so new game called Catwalk countdown. So first of the reason I want to review this game is because well, as far as I know of, this game isn't very popularized compare to the other games that ever came out and it's not so bad once you play it. Second reason is the nature of the game, I love playing horror themed games and this one was like taking a break from all the spooky and creepy plots and game play, it was more colorful and happy and that looked like fun!

So anyways, This is a easy paced stimulation game and it revolves around a aspiring fashion designer who just had about enough of her no good boss, who somehow reminds me of Meryl Streep in her awesome role as the evil Miranda from the movie, "The devil wears Prada". Well Look at the picture, doesn't she look like her? Hey you never know, she must have been an inspiration for the game!:P

So, the fashion designer, that is played by none other than you, decides to quit the job and start up your own clothing line!Throughout the game, you will meet different characters to help you make your dreams come true, from a very wise uncle to a very helpful friend and a very annoying and demanding girl. The game play is quiet simple, usually involves maintaining your routine on a daily basis and fulfilling quests to get closer into completing your goal. However for a game that involves fashion, there isn't much to do in the game, sure the story keeps you occupied but somewhere the game could have been more interesting. The entire game play can be quite repetitive and maybe it would have been more fun if there was some mini games added in and I felt the quest could have been a bit more challenging. Also, the game was too short! But then again it is better off being short if the game play was going to be so repetitive. :P

 What I did like about the game was the interactive choices we had throughout the game, you can choose whatever name you wished to be called and the characters respond to that, there are certain areas you can control dialogues the way you want them to and I thought that is pretty cool. The background environments were colorful and lovely, whoever made the art for this game made the style sweet and simple in appearance which was fantastic.  Overall the game is entertaining, something you should play if you are bored and just want to relax an have a quite girly game time. 

Game rating: *** 3 stars!
