PJ Masks: Heroes of the Night is easily the title that had me the most excited heading into OG Unwrapped. I have found myself pleasantly surprised with how much I have enjoyed the show on Netflix since my two sons started watching it.
The official synopsis for PJ Masks: Heroes of the Night reads;
“Who goes into the night to save the day? You do! Get your PJs on and become Catboy, Owlette, and Gekko in the most exciting PJ Masks game yet. Set off from Mission Control HQ on a platforming adventure for little heroes. Use your superpowers – like Catboy’s speed, Owlette’s flying, and Gekko’s muscles – to stop the night-time baddies. And explore eight PJ Masks locations, from Mystery Mountain all the way to Moon! With PJ Robot’s help, you’ll discover a world of friendship, teamwork, and hidden collectibles. Can you save the world from Romeo, Luna Girl, and Night Ninja?”
I got to play as each of the three characters in the demo and found myself platforming, flying and crawling up and down walls. The side-scrolling perspective works well for the playful art design and appropriately keeps things simple.
There were plenty of things to collect, masks to find and light puzzles to solve using the special abilities of each of the characters. There’s enough variety to keep things from being too simple but not too much to overwhelm younger players.
The adventurous score accompanied the cute and charming visuals, providing an authentic presentation that seamlessly recreates the vibe of the TV series. It looks and sounds as fun as it plays, even at my age (which is at least triple that of the target audience), I found it endearing and enjoyable.
Coming in with the expectations I had, I can safely say I was not disappointed and I look forward to the full release PJ Masks: Heroes of the Night and getting the kids into it as well.
