It’s nearly New York Fashion Week! What could have been a better platform to launcher new fashion boutique in the middle of the Big Apple? But Angela’s path to glory doesn’t come with no obstacles when the reigning queen of fashion Noémie is out destroying Angela’s reputation. Can Angela win over the investor’s hearts in Fabulous: Angela’s True Colors?
Out of all Gamehouse Original Stories‘ games, I now find the Fabulous: Angela series to be the least engaging – and True Colors dos not exactly change my opinion. Fabulous: Angela’s True Colors reunites the player with Angela and her crew on a new quest, this time to give her dream boutique a proper launch. While the premise is quite interesting, I still find Angela’s character to be unnecessarily annoying and some plot points extremely cheesy. Maybe it’s just a matter of taste, but I quickly lose interest after only a few levels.
After the disappointing Angela’s Wedding Disaster, the series rebounded somewhat in terms of gameplay with True Colors. Still, the game could definitely use some more outside-the-box thinking and creative flourishes. As a fan who have played most of the Gamehouse Original Stories games, I found this one to be very predictable and easy all throughout its 60 levels. On the controversial subject of pop-up mini-games, I actually found them fairly enjoyable. Most of the mini-games are fun, fresh, and easy to navigate.
Other aspects of the gameplay are in line with expectations. The challenge levels offer a nice change of pace, the hidden mice are still featured, the upgrades are neatly thoughtout. As with all games in the series, Fabulous: Angela’s True Colors maintains an upbeat mood and tone. The graphics are bright and sharp, the soundtracks are joyous, and the animations are of high-quality.
