Chimparty will appeal to children initially, but its over-simplified controls and odd way of rewarding victory in party games will even put them off before long.
Chimparty is fun in places, but the repetition and occasional frustrations of its minigames means it's not likely to stay that way for long. As a family game it's too fiddly to be enjoyable for a sustained period of time, though its visual style is appealing enough to soften the blows of the substandard gameplay. Mario Party it certainly isn't – hopefully there'll be some better family games coming to PlayLink sooner or later.
Overall, Chimparty is a fun PlayLink title from NapNok that gives off a nice Mario Party vibe, while not quite reaching the level design that usually comes with a Mario Party. Chimparty is a good family game, though, and a good addition to the PlayLink family.
For button mashing and smashing fun, Chimparty is sure to please and even better yet nice and cheap to buy. Both kids and adults are going to be super pleased at just how much they will enjoy this series of mini games. Give it a shot for yourself. A short and sweet review for a great little game. Worth the purchase.
Chimparty can be fun the first couple of times you play it with friends or at parties and meetings, but does not have the appeal to be often remembered in these situations or arouse the interest to be played individually.
