My husband it not happy that a second viva pinata game has been released. I was so addicted to the first one I commandeered the X box in the lounge that was actually his christmas present and I neglected the housework until I had completed the game (which took me a year).
The game is all about attracting cute animal pinatas to your garden. Pinatas are papier-mache objects in various shapes that children take turns in hitting until sweets fall out as a party game. Once you have attracted them and they become residents you then start romancing them. There are a couple of animals that turn into different species once they have eaten certain items or romanced 2 different species together. Then you can turn them 3 different colours discovering which combination of food to feed them. I won't spoil it by listing what does what, if you want cheats there are plenty of web sites out there that do walk throughs of the games. Pinata 2 steps it up to include 2 new environments. There you attract various pinatas and bring them to your main garden. One is a desert with new animals like crabs, the other is the artic with new animals like penguins. Another new feature is called a trick stick that means you train your animals by getting them to eat certain items them using the trick stick they perform there own party pieces.
This is an extremely addictive game and very good value for money. My husband has completed several combat games while I have only done pinata one and I'm not even half way through pinata 2. I have also introduced this game to my nieces and nephews who love it so it is for all ages. Gamers call it an open game, that means it can continue for as long as you want, there is no final point where the game stops even once you have done all there is to achieve.
I highly recommend this game to anyone who can put their life on hold until it's completed!
