Alba: A Wildlife Adventure Review!

“Join Alba as she visits her grandparents on a Mediterranean island in Alba: A Wildlife Adventure. She is ready for a peaceful summer of wildlife exploration with her friend Ines, but when she sees an animal in danger, she realizes she needs to do something about it!

This is truly a Mediterranean paradise if you ignore all the litter! From the idyllic beaches to the ancient castle overlooking the town a whole island is ready to be explored. With Ines and your grandfather – who is a total bird nerd – by your side, you can start the movement to save the island. Maybe even the world after that.”

Gameplay

Play as Alba and protect animals!

Play as Alba, an 11-year-old girl with a passion for helping animals – hence the title. During your adventures, you will help stranded dolphins back to sea to nursing sick squirrels back to health. The possibilities are endless!

The gameplay couldn’t possibly be more wholesome and I loved it from the start. The story starts with Alba on holiday with her grandparents and when she goes to take a picture, she spots a Lynx in the background. Fast forward 10 years and she’s back at the same location, except with her friend where they both spot a stranded whale.

After saving the whale, they decide to start a wildlife league…

Graphics

The graphics are adorable and not like anything I’ve seen before!

To fit with the adorable gameplay like a glove, the graphics are not only bright and colorful but have their own unique touch to them that I’ve never seen before in a mobile game. It looks like something I’d find on a console game (on that note, it’s also available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC).

Music & Sounds

I don’t think I’ve ever felt more relaxed whilst playing a game before. The ambience of the beach and the noises the characters make instead of speaking are just oh so perfect. I can’t get enough.

Controls

Drag to control!

The controls are easy to follow, making this the perfect adventure game for any age. Drag the bottom part of the screen to move and the top part to change your camera angle. Characters who you need to talk to will appear with a thought bubble above their head – click on them to talk.

The Power of in-app Purchases

Alba: A Wildlife Adventure is featured in the Apple Arcade subscription!

As this is a game that’s part of the Apple Arcade subscription ($4.99 a month), it has no in-app purchases or ads. No distractions, just gaming… Bliss!

The Verdict

What did you think of Alba: A Wildlife Adventure?!

Alba: A Wildlife Adventure was an absolute delight to play. I’ve never felt more relaxed while playing a game and felt like I was in it most of the time. If I’m honest I’m not going to keep this on my phone as I think it would be a much better experience on the Switch. It’s still amazing for a mobile game though, don’t get me wrong!
