Playing: Rabi Tobi (ラビとび)

*Update on 22 March 2019 :
Rabi Tobi game service ended on 29 September 2016. :<
But, I found a new link to the Rabi Tobi Collections mini-game!! Jump to the bottom of this post to check it out!

Lately, while I’m still trying to get Cream-san and Cafe-san in Neko Atsume, I’ve also been trying out a few other games. The newest and cutest of them all is this very new mobile game called  “Rabi Tobi (ラビとび)” or “Jumping Rabbit” that was just released on 4th September, and I really want to write about and share this game with everyone.

I first spotted the game made by Japanese developer Cygames, Inc. on QooApp blog about its Pre-Register bonus. One look at the images showing the beautiful storybook style ingame art and how it’s played, and it had all of my interest (you know, other than the fact that cute animals are one of my biggest weakness).

Look how cute the art and that rabbit is!!

And here’s the promotion movie!

Interested? Allow me to give you a brief introduction~

Basically in this game, us players help to control this adorable rabbit called “つきたて” (Tsukitate) to hop islands. How? We pull on the tail (yes, the TAIL!), carefully take aim so that Tsukitate can make it safely to the next island, and let go of the tail to send our furry friend hopping. That’s all there is to the basic controls!

Now on to how the game works. Rabi Tobi has different Areas and each Area has many Stages with increasingly difficult puzzles. One Carrot is used for challenging a stage and a Carrot is recharged each 30 minutes, or players can use the In-App Purchase currency “Rubies” to recharge.

The objective of each Stage is to help Tsukitate reach the other shore. If Tsukitate falls into the water, one Heart is used for player to retry from the last island location. Each stage has 3 Hearts before player has failed the Stage and will have to challenge it again (or use Rubies to continue).

If player gets a Star for clearing the Stage for the first time, a Star for within a certain time limit, and a Star for not dropping into water. The Stars are for unlocking Stages.

To spice things up, there are islands and objects with different properties, and items that give Tsukitate different temporary powers and adorable appearance transformations! I’m really looking forward to see what kind of puzzles awaits me in the future stages. 😀

The best part?

The game is Free to Play and available on both iOS App Store and Google Play for Android! I couldn’t install from Google Play though as it’s probably region-locked or something, so I downloaded it from QooApp instead. It does have the occasional banner ads, and of course, In-App Purchase.

Bonus!!

There’s a really cute web-brower mini-game on the Official Website called ラビとびコレクション (Rabi Tobi Collections) (link updated 22 March 2019) where we can poke and prod at Tsukitate to collect snapshots of it doing really cute things, like rubbing its tummy or doing a dizzying spin.

Collect all the snapshots to unlock exclusive wallpaper! The energy bar refills by one every 2 minute though so it may take a little more patience and effort. The best part for me is finding out that Tsukitate in the actual game has some of these responses when being poked at. :3

And~ that’s it~! I hope everyone will enjoy and love this game as much as I do!

More Neko Atsume goodness!

It seems there are more than a few of my Facebook friends are Neko Atsume fans, and they shared some awesome Neko Atsume news with me~!

Neko Atsume’s Web Manga “Wise Neko Atsume”

These weekly three-panels comic strips written by Miyui Tsuki, with assistance by Hit-Point Co., Ltd. are released every Friday, featuring the cute cats from the game with some thought provoking quotes.

You can go to Anime News Network’s article for 1st week’s comic and you can visit the comic’s page at Denshi-Birz to check out the latest release.

I have included this week’s release (click on the thumbnail on the left), which has a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson:

“We walk alone in the world. Friends, such as we desire, are dreams and fables.”

Miss Kiri’s Neko Atsume posts

When I was searching for the installation and play guides previously, I came across Miss Kiri’s guide (it’s in Traditional Chinese) and was impressed by the interesting way the information was presented and the animated gifs showcasing the cats. Although ultimately I chose another guide, I never forgot Miss Kiri’s post.

How can I forget when there’s a cute cat like this?!

Some days ago, I chanced upon her site again, and decided to share her posts to English fans. She included a lot a lot of screenshots and images so it’s actually pretty easy to make sense of.

綺麗小姐的“貓咪收集”文章

之前尋找下載教學的時候,我選擇了鏈接至另外一個網站比較整齊的教學,但是我沒有忘記過綺麗小姐那富有動態圖片又文法超有趣的文章。前天,為了找有關羊毛氈公仔而再次撞見時,頓時覺得應該分享一下給英文的貓咪收集粉絲看看。因為有很多圖片,所以還挺容易看的懂的。

FFXIV: ARR Heavensward Astrologian Wallpaper -modified-

With the Heavensward expansion coming soon, I’ve been switching to use the officially released wallpapers. When the ones with the concept art of the three new jobs “Dark Knight”, “Astrologian” and “Machinist” were released, I was disappointed to find that they had a nice plain almost white background because I can’t stand bright backgrounds. 🙁

So I made my own modification to the Astrologian wallpaper, since it’s the one job I want to try the most.

I could have gone with a simple one color background to just make it darker, but I remember downloading a nice background that I found some time ago. So I combined the two.

The stars in the background are pretty fitting, aren’t they? And here’s the result!

While it is not the most balanced of pieces, I don’t think I did too badly for my purpose. Oh, the super dark bottom edge is deliberate, because my Windows Taskbar has transparency and any words showing through the tabs always disorientates me.

If you like any of the above, click on the images to get the original 1920×1080 wallpapers. 🙂

Neko Atsume’s official twitter sneaks about 1.3.0 update

Just discovered Neko Atsume’s twitter page and found a piece of good news!

“Summer goods incoming! Neko Atsume Ver1.3.0 scheduled for mid-June!”

Yay!!! More cats and toys incoming!!

yuyoyuyo-san’s fan-made Neko Atsume dolls

Spotted a Chinese article “貓咪收集App萌爆羊毛氈公仔登場!” featuring hand-made dolls of the cats from Neko Atsume! So I did a little digging and found the source of these adorable little wool felt dolls:

Now my hands itch to make my own little cats…. *must resist*

Travel to Ul’dah FREE via Gold Saucer

Did you know? If you take the Airship from Gridania or Limsa Lominsa (*update* or Ishgard too) to Gold Saucer, then take the Airship from Gold Saucer to Ul’dah, not a single gil will be spent?

I was so happy when I discovered it since I’m the sort who prefers to spend as little money as possible on travelling. And I visit the Gold Saucer everyday anyway to buy the Mini Cactpot Ticket, or play a few rounds of Triple Triad on weeks when the Tournament is ongoing, so it’s like a free airship ride with a quick transit stop at the fancy casino. 😀

FFXIV – To get Tiny Rat minion

Written as a reminder to self, to get the Tiny Rat minion, I have to complete the FATE named “Attack on Highbridge: Act III”, then purchase from the NPC “Chachamun” at Eastern Thanalan x22 y21.

PS. I added the bit of code needed to make certain FFXIV links show tooltip from The Lodestone! Yay for mouseover magic!

*Update 1* I got the minion! But not without trying to pull my hair off. Apparently, the FATE “Attack on Highbridge: Act III” is the fourth part of a chain of FATEs, starting with “Attack on Highbridge: Prelude”. Some kind fellow has written in detail about this, so send some love his way.

*Update 2* I checked back at the NPC to try buy another of the minion and Chachamun doesn’t want to sell it to me anymore! Boo! It seems there is a reset of some kind.

One of my sisters reported the same thing then proceeded to do the whole FATE chain again. The result is that Chachamun is now selling the Tiny Rats to her again, and she sent 5 rats to my mail so we won’t have to go through the FATEs again… *eyes our FC house’s mailbox suspiciously for squeaking sounds*

Yda visiting the Gold Saucer?!

Ran into this player who has the whole Yda getup twice, and both times, she was in Gold Saucer!

If only there’s a Papalymo with her…

Neko Atsume 1.2.0 update, alternate backyards!

Some time ago, just when I was starting to run out of toys to buy in this game, I spotted posts in a Facebook group showing new stuff in Neko Atsume (ねこあつめ), and yep, there’s a new update! *pops confetti*

The new feature in this update is called “Makeover” but I like to call it alternate backyards. It can be accessed using the new icon at the bottom left corner, and you can buy new backyard designs with golden fishes. There’s a 50% discount coupon for the first backyard purchase!

Playing: Neko Atsume

Just started playing this relaxing little Japanese Android game called “Neko Atsume (ねこあつめ)”, where you play as a cat lover who can’t have a kitty of your own, so you set out food and toys to attract the neighborhood cats to come in and play.

Look at that adorable little idiot who stuffed itself into the cake box! xD

If you’re interested in the game, there is an English guide for it, 繁体中文的下载教学 和 游戏教学.

*Update* It seems to be available for most regions on the Google Play store now! 🙂

Bye, Dragon Nest SEA. Hello again FFXIV: ARR.

As mentioned in the Collection Titles Masterlist, I have stopped playing Dragon Nest SEA since the start of the year and am unlikely to pick it up again for a while, especially since I’m now totally absorbed in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.

There are quite a number of reasons for this, and I would rather not get into details with them all. Except that a friend whom I befriended because of DN once commented amidst a discussion that Dragon Nest is not the type of game for me. I was a little offended then, but now, I realize that he is right.

I am a casual player who plays only within a small social circle, a quester, explorer and a collector. I can’t care less about bragging rights, squeezing out the most damage or playing the best DPS class. DN’s gameplay is exciting and different from MMOs I used to play, and that attracted me. However, it lacked far too many things that I need in order to enjoy myself thoroughly. And all that, I found in FFXIV:ARR.

TL:DR version: I have found a game that suits me better, so its world is where I have gone and will be staying for a long time.

As such, I will not be making new Collection Title guides or updating the existing ones. I may still share any interesting stuff related to Dragon Nest that I come across, but probably not a lot of those either.

Those interested in playing with me in FFXIV, come find me~! I’m playing in Hades server (JP), and my character’s name is Selceriar Lunaxiel. 🙂  よろしくお願いします!
