DreamWorks Spirit Lucky’s Big Adventure from AHEARTFULLOFGAMES and Outright Games brings the movie to life on Nintendo Switch. Lucky Prescott never really knew Milagro Navarro, her late mother, who was a fearless horse-riding stunt performer in the town of Miradero. Lucky ended up growing up in a city on the East Coast under the watch of her aunt Cora. Lucky is not one to follow the rules and protocol, so when she tries her luck and takes things a bit too far, Cora decides it’s time for Lucky to go back to live with her father, Jim, in Miradero.
You’ll explore the wild frontier land of Miradero with Lucky, Spirit, and their friends. You’ll be exploring Miradero and its surrounding areas as you use Milagro’s map, which you found in a box she left behind. What do you do when you find a treasure map? You go out on a treasure hunt! You will enlist the help of Abigail and Pru as you try to find what the map is hiding, taking on a series of fetch quests as you collect this and that to help out in town.
You can walk around as Lucky with the left analog stick or the D-Pad as you move the camera around with the right one. The + button will open up Lucky’s diary, where you can review what is going on, check any collectibles you’ve picked up, take a look at the map and any landmarks you need to be aware of, and look at any photographs you have taken with Aunt Cora’s camera. You can bring out the camera with the X button and move it around with the left and right analog sticks as you try to center the subject of your photograph to get a good one for your collection.
You can interact with objects or other characters by pressing the A button. If you find an item of interest, you can press the A button to pick it up. When near Spirit, you can mount with the B button. If Spirit has any empty horseshoes, be sure to first give it a hug with the A button. Horseshoes are important since they represent Spirit’s stamina, which will lower when you sprint with the A button. While running, spirit can jump with the B button. Spirit will automatically jump over short fences while you run towards it. Drinking water will help Spirit to recover. If you need to dismount, just make sure Spirit comes to a complete stop, and then press the Y button.
DreamWorks Spirit Lucky’s Big Adventure has an in-game achievement system so that you can work on different objectives as you progress through the game’s story. As for what needs to be done, you will unlock achievements for completing all of your chores at the stable, showing the map to your friends, helping your dad find his missing tools, complete the photography tutorial, crossing the river through the Beaver Dam, helping the herd cross the bridge, or taking a picture of Miradero at night for your Aunt Cora, to name some examples.
DreamWorks Spirit Lucky’s Big Adventure brings us a take on the recent Spirit Untamed movie that revamps the Spirit series for the Nintendo Switch. Back in the day, we used to get a ton of Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) games tied to movie releases, and it’s something that we see more of on Nintendo Switch since Outright Games also has PAW Patrol The Movie: Adventure City Calls on Nintendo’s console – which we’ll soon be reviewing here. Spirit is aimed at kids, with its E for Everyone rating, offering a handful of hours of gaming. DreamWorks Spirit Lucky’s Big Adventure is out on Nintendo Switch with a $39.99 price.
