Game Journal April 16: Bone: The Great Cow Race

It's definitely improved since the first game, that's for sure! People complained it was too short and that there were too many running games, and despite the title, there is running, but not as a mini game that is!

The Bones have finally reunited at Barrelhaven, just in time for the great cow race, and Phoney Bone immediately plots a way to scam the villagers!

He soon finds out that they don't use money, but a barter system, but that won't stop, but of course, he's just had a few beers and he can't pay for them...

Now he has to work at the tavern to pay for the beers when he should be working on his scam!

But perhaps working in a tavern does have it's advantages?

Fone Bone is at the fair with fair Thorn, when they try to buy some honey from a boy Thorn finds cute, the boy and Fone argue and Thorne gets mad at both of them, now Fone must find a way to impress Thorne!

Now you can switch between Fone Bone, Phoney Bone and Smiley Bone at will, and sometimes you must get one of the cousins to do a certain thing to help the other cousins...

This time I read the comic before playing the game and while it does follow the plot, it also different so it won't spoil the game if you read the book first and viceversa!

The minigames are down to a minimum, and while you do race, it's more or a puzzle or a mental challenge than a mini game...

It has lots of funny moments, including references to other adventure game and ever the prequel, this game made laugh, although made that's because I'm full of chocolate and I'm in a good mood? :P

It's also definitely longer, instead if being only one or two hours, it's about 4 or 5 hours, which is great considering it's just based on one volume of Bone!

I did notice they change the voices of some of the characters, but I can't pinpoint which! Thorne also looks much better in this game...

Challenge-wise? It's still easy, but not as easy as the previous game...

I can't wait for the next episode! :D
