I play video games and review them.

Katy and Bob: Way Back Home (

Katy and Bob are just two rich kids that laze around the house while their father works full-time.  In order to teach them self-reliance, he sends them to a beach and gives them a challenge.  They have to earn enough money for a ticket home.

Not exactly the most original of plots but not a boring one either.  Two spoiled kids have to learn to appreciate what they have.

There’s just one thing that bothers me about this.  Bob learns his lesson faster than Katy, who wants to spend money on the first pretty thing she sees.  Therefore, women will spend all their money unless a man is present; I call unfortunate implications.

In the game, your customers can order anything from sodas to cocktails.  Katy takes care of the waitressing while Bob does the bartending.  After a certain event, monkeys come to purchase things from you as well.  In order to advance to the next level you have to meet the required goal.  If you’re lucky, you can get expert.

The money you earn is used to purchase upgrades.  In each level, you have a task you can complete to earn a different type of money that’s used to increase speed and patience.

It’s fun and not a bad waste of time.  I give it 6 out of 10, cliché plot with a good game play.
