The Last kids on Earth and the staff of Doom is the latest game from Bandai Namco released on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo switch and is based on the Novels and now Netflix Cartoon Series.
I’ll be honest Tigger knew What the Last kids on earth were as he had seen the books, and dived straight into the series on Netflix as he began playing the game, I didn’t really know much about it, however, he was fully up to speed, but how would he get on with the game? well the story both in the novel and series is pretty close to the adult theme with the end of the world type and walking dead type zombies etc, so for him this whole story was a big step up even though it’s inherently a kids game etc
What they say
“Time to gear up as Jack, Quint, June, and Dirk in a search for the missing pieces of the ultra-powerful Staff of Doom!
But beware… Malondre, Queen of the Slime Monsters, seeks the Staff to summon Rezzoch the Ancient, Destructor of Worlds.
Upgrade your weapons and armor, cruise around Wakefield in a post-apocalyptic pickup truck, fight through hordes of zombies and massive monsters, and battle epic bosses in The Last Kids on Earth and The Staff of Doom!”
What Tigger says
“The Last Kids on Earth and the staff of doom is all about stopping Malondre, an evil sorceress. Around the town of Wakefield, there are four shards of a weapon to stop her. Once you find a single shard you have to fight a boss to earn the shard. Once you have gained all the shards you can put them together and create the weapon that will defeat malondre. There is only a single mode which is the story mode.”
“In story mode, if you want you can have a little wander around the town and talk to characters to gain side quests. You also can play as the last kids on earth characters which are: Jack Sullivan who is the adventurer and leader, June Del Toro who is the fighter, Quint Baker who is the smart scientist character, and finally Dirk Savage who is the muscle of the group.
I like The Last Kids On Earth And The Staff Of Doom because I can play as some of my favorite characters from the show and I get to fight different monsters and zombies.”
If you keep dying try leveling up your armor and get a better weapon
Make sure you use specific characters on tasks to help you
It is a top-down hack and slash at heart, with 4 characters, this isn’t a bad thing as these can often be great games and there isn’t many good kids type games that have this theme, most of these are older like Marvel or Diablo for example, but this is fine, and if your a fan of either the Novel and in particular the series then you will naturally shine towards it. Graphics are solid and actually done in the way to transition from cut scenes video clips and more importantly the Netflix series which for kids makes a better transition.
