Holiday Gift Guide - Gravity Falls Legend of the Gnome Gemulets for 3DS

Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets is adapted from Disney XD’s #1 series, "Gravity Falls.” In collaboration with the show’s creator and executive producer Alex Hirsh, a brand new and original adventure was created for the game and places players in a mysterious adventure to help Jeff the Gnome retrieve the ancient Gnome Gemulets and restore magic to the Gnome forest.

Players will play as both Dipper and Mabel Pines in dual character gameplay switching between characters at any time to use their unique powers and abilities given through the power of Gnome magic. Dipper is bestowed with Gnome Battle Cuffs which deliver powerful punches at close range, and keeps his trusty flashlight by his side to shed light on the many mysteries in Gravity Falls. Mabel wields the Fleece of Bezazzlementthat lets her whip her sweater sleeves to attack monsters from afar, and her grappling hook is at the ready to help access areas otherwise out of reach. Dipper and Mabel will complement one another as they will unravel a mystery to learn more about the inhabitants of Gravity Falls and unlock secrets of the town’s past.

Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets is powered by the UbiArt Framework game engine and allows players to experience lush backgrounds and beautiful graphics. Players will explore favorite places from the show, such as the Mystery Shack and the Gnome Forest like never before.

My Thoughts  

My kids really love the Gravity Falls television show, so they were super excited to test out the 3DS game. Legend of the Gnome Gemulets takes you on a adventure through Mystery Shack, the Gnome Forest, and lots of other mystical places. You can play as both Dipper and Mabel, which makes my kids happy, as you search for the clues to unlock the mysteries of Gravity Falls. The pair wander around the town asking the townspeople questions and trying to find the flying gnome. The 3D effects are cool, but my children do say that it hurts their eyes after a while (but this is true of all 3D games.) 

 While the game is very clever and fun, it was a little easy to beat. My tween finished the whole game in about three hours, and it's not too exciting to play again. For the price of the game, I'd like to see them be able to get a little more out of it. Nevertheless, fans of the show will still love to play.  It looks just like the cartoon and the mystery is interesting to solve. It just moves a little too fast.
