PAW Patrol The Movie: Adventure City Calls Review – PC

Outright Games the undisputed leader in global publishing for family-friendly interactive entertainment teams up with Nickelodeon again to bring you their third non-cannon Paw Patrol video game. Based on the movie released on August 20th, 2021, the game introduces an all-new pup pal in a 3D puzzle platform environment with solo or local co-op gameplay. Developed by Drakhar Studios PAW Patrol The Movie: Adventure City Calls offers a brand loyal experience where young children can play as the pups and save adventure city. PAW Patrol The Movie: Adventure City Calls is available now on PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, Stadia, and Steam priced at $39.99.

PAW PatrolThe Movie: Adventure City Calls is the follow-up title to PAW Patrol: On a Roll and PAW Patrol Mighty Pups Save Adventure Bay. As the third installment to the Paw Patrol video games series, I was expecting there to be some engine updates. That is not the case here, the game itself seems to be almost identical to the previous titles. But I mean come on let’s be real here entertaining younger children is the goal. So, if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it? We did encounter some bugs playing solo with the friendly AI pup running to walls and getting stuck on objects. This was surprising considering the game was released almost 2 months ago. We also found some small coloration glitches around and about Adventure City. Aside from these small details, PAW Patrol The Movie: Adventure City Calls is on-brand with the cartoon according to our young ones who helped with this review.

I have to be absolutely honest with you GLYFE Nation. I am a dog lover and these little pup characters are the cutest things ever. I don’t care who you are or what your age is, after playing this game these little guys just get to you. Ok back to the review. – Theo

I really like that they do PC versions of these titles. I think at this age it is really important to start introducing your children to computer basics. We had the chance to play this game with some young ones around the ages of 2 ½ – 4 ½ years old. While the menu did get a bit distracting once the gameplay began it was like glue. Drakhar Studios did a great job of scaling the difficulty for kids of this age group. It’s right at that sweet spot where they will not be discouraged by its difficulty and stay entertained. Each main story level lasts about 10 – 25 minutes. There are tons of mini-games that will challenge hand-eye coordination and reward players with collectibles as they progress. I am surprised at the lack of story elements in a title like this. It’s a fact what attracts kids to the brand the most is the shows and movies. I think the lack of cutscenes and story progression is a huge miss.

PAW Patrol The Movie: Adventure City Calls does provide an excellent gameplay experience for the younger audience. Local co-op play provides a great opportunity to develop teamwork skills while trying to solve the game’s puzzles. I believe this feature adds tremendous value to parents in need of entertaining multiple children. Due to the lack of cutscenes and It being on the shorter side I would like to see this priced at $29.99 or possibly released as an expansion to the previous title. All that being said PAW Patrol The Movie: Adventure City Calls is a wonderful title any kid would enjoy.
