Hey, guys. I was sitting on my couch playing on my Xbox when I realized there was a video game I’d been playing for forever – well, since kindergarten – and hadn’t blogged about it. Yes, I played it in kindergarten, but it’s the kind of video game that is available for all ages, just in a different style. My dad even played it at one point.
Viva Pinata! Where on earth am I going to start??!! Not to sound braggy, but I know so much about this game I could write a handbook. I’ll explain the basics first.
You start out with a dried-out, junk-filled, comparably tiny plot of land. Then, as the game goes on, you clear it out, expand, grow plants, attract pinatas, and make it beautiful. The game is made so that there are lots of hidden cheats available – such as changing pinatas’ color, attaining new pinatas, and even transforming and evolving them – so this will be a very rich topic for my blog. I’m excited.
For this post, I’ll start with three basic pinatas, their needs, and their special cheats.
This is the first pinata you attain. They’re extremely simple to get – all you need is at least 1 pinometer of dirt or grass. To romance them, you do exactly the same, plus having one of their type’s houses in the garden, which is necessary for all pinatas to romance. They’re required food to get Sparrowmints to breed, and quite a few others – this is a staple pinata that is extremely difficult to completely eradicate.
Feeding them a turnip will turn them purple. Feeding them a watercress seed will turn them green. Feeding them a water lily seed will turn them pink.
Pinatas’ names come from two things: a candy or edible, or an animal. These pinatas are named after whirls and worms.
These pinatas are almost as easy to get as Whirlms. To attract them and make them visit, all you need is a Whirlm. To make them residents, you have to have romanced Whirlms before. To romance them, they must eat a Whirlm. Eating one of these is part of the Buzzenge’s romance requirements.
Feeding them a thistle flowerhead will turn them purple. Feeding them a water lily flower will turn them pink. Feeding them a watercress flower will turn them green. Feeding them a buttercup flower will turn them into a Candary.
These pinatas are names after spearmints and sparrows.
The Mothdrop only comes out at night. In fact, that’s all they need to appear and visit. To become a resident, you must have some kind of light in the garden. To make them romance, they must eat a thistle. Mothdrops are required to attain tamed Sherbats and Galagoogoos.
Feeding them a bluebell seed, a turnip, and a carrot will turn them blue with orange wings. Feeding them a daisy flower will turn them yellow. Feeding them a pumpkin and a watercress flower will turn them green with red wings.
These pinatas are named after coughdrops and moths.
Expect more Viva Pinata posts in the future. I don’t know of too many people that play this game – only Flora, actually – but if you do, I hope these posts are helpful. If you don’t, it’s really fun. You ought to try it.
P.S. Sorry for the spam of tags. I just had lots of ideas.
