A Review of Super Mario Odyssey

We’re back and with exciting Mario news!

Need new ideas for children’s parties? With the Super Mario Odyssey release, no need to look any further! It’s too much fun to put it down! What is this game about you ask? Is it Princess Peach? Yup, you guessed it! Princess Peach managed to get nabbed again! With each stage, you make your way through mazes and new opponents. We had a ton of fun “researching” this game! You can find it on Amazon, Ebay, Best Buy, and GameStop!

Remember to explore the other challenges that could be hidden at these levels. This game has some similarities to the original Mario games but have way more mini levels! Even though there are a bunch of hidden challenges, one of the hardest parts of this game is its non-stop madness! Make sure to check out this game when looking for new birthday games!


Mario got a new companion in this installment: Cappy. With the help of Cappy, you can turn into all kinds of animals and even the walking bombs! Can you turn into a giant stack of Goombas? YUP!

Triple Jumping

Do you remember when double jumping was a revolutionary thing? We do too which is why we are excited to play this new game which features a triple jump!

Have a different gameplay style?

With this game, you can play your way! Jump on every Goomba you see or avoid all the walking bombs, it’s up to you! If you liked the Zelda games, then you’ll love this one with your ability to explore different stages! We were also happy with this Assassins Creed like gameplay style. It also reminds us of the old Spiderman games as Mario roams through the city bouncing on cars and people’s heads.

Finished the game?

There are alternate endings! With 120 “Moons” which are pretty much the equivalent of harder to collect coins, you can beat the game but if you collect 500 Moons, you get to experience the real ending! Keep in mind, 500 is a lot of Moons when the game only has 830 of them!

Generally, when you beat a game, it gets dull. Well not with this one! When you beat this game, the challenges get even harder! This game introducing all new ideas and we love them! They incorporate these ideas intuitively and with child gameplay in mind. In this game, you can collect a bundle of Moons and it is a bundle of fun.

Spooky Games To Play All Month Long

The countdown is on: It’s almost Halloween. How will you celebrate the spookiest day of the year? Perhaps you’ll eat too much candy after trick-or-treating, or maybe you’re already working on a creative costume. If you’re looking to host an awesome Halloween event, you may have already invited GameTruck to your party.

However you’re choosing to spend the day of Halloween, you have all of October to get in the mood. Playing some spooky video games will have you ready for Oct. 31, and the best part is that you have the option to play these at any time.

Injustice: Gods Among Us

Available on Android, iOS, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, Xbox 360

DC Comics fans, listen up: This game is the perfect way to prepare for Halloween. What could be spookier than a game that features the Joker and Sinestro? Bonus: Superman does something unspeakable at the start of the game after being tricked by the Joker and seeks retribution afterward. You’ll have to play to find out what happens next, but trust us – it’s good.

Call of Duty: Ghosts

Available on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One

We’ll admit the name’s a bit misleading here. The ghosts in Call of Duty: Ghosts aren’t the Casper kind. Instead, the Ghosts are a military special operations unit that fights against the Federation of the Americas, a group trying to destroy both North and South America. You’ll even get to unlock an outer space level.

Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure

Available on Microsoft Windows, Nintendo 3DS, Mac OS X, PlayStation 3, Wii, Xbox 360
This may not fit the traditional definition of spooky, but if you’re looking for a game suitable for children that will get their hearts racing, we’ve got a great one to try out. Players are tasked with defeating enemies as they’re chased by the bad guys.
