Game review – Hamsterz 2

Standard

Platform: Nintendo DS

The point of the game is to care and play with your hamsters. There are 200 items to buy for your hamster and 32 treasures. Treasures are things which your hamster will need or love, like clippers and sun flower seeds. There are 4 basic breeds of hamsters: golden, dwarf, . . and 90 different fur colours and patterns.

You can play mini games with them which win them clothing accessories, and competitions which win you money.
I found it ok for a bit, but if I played it for too long it got a bit boring (note: I haven’t got very far in the game.) The hamsters’ reactions are very realistic as well as the hamsters themselves. I thought there were some problems with the cages, for instance I bought 4 hamsters, I put the first hamster in the first cage, then i put two hamsters in the second cage, but when i tried to move the fourth hamster into the third cage the second hamster from the second cage moved to the third cage automatically.

So far I give it 6/10.

Food review – Pizza Hut Llandudno Junction.

Standard

The pizza I ordered was half the cheese, sweet corn and green peppers on a Italian thin crusty base.
It was lovely, the base was crunchy  yet not too crunchy.I had half the cheese because last time I went there and had the full amount of cheese it was too much – very filling. The side salad was very crunchy and sweet – because I had a lot of sweetcorn.

I tasted some vanilla and caramel milk shake from my Dad. My Dad said it was very nice, I disagreed I think it was  too sweet with not enough punch. Overall I would give them 7/10.

Mountain camping

Standard

 

driving to Eigiau

 

We went camping for solstice at the side of the Carneddau in Egiau valley and went climbing up a multi-pitch climb.There was me, my Mum and my Dad, Tom Racheal, James and Dave, it took 1 hour to get from the car to where we were camping I was carrying food and water, my Dad took the climbing gear and my Mum took the camping gear. The walk there was tiring because my bag was very heavy.

Can you spot the tents?

When we got there my Mum and Dad set up the tent and as it was dinner time I ate the sandwiches. After the food we walked  up a mighty great alpiny hill to the bottom of the 1000ft climb where my Dad lead the first pitch.

Walking to the bottom of the climb

The name of the climb was Amphitheatre Buttress. We set off last about 7:30pm. The climb was long, well polished and the rock formations were odd.

At one pitch it looked like from a certain angle my Dad stuck his foot above his head and pushed up on it, it was fine though when I got to it. However it was a long climb – we were climbing in the dark towards the end, climbing was a lot harder – it was mildly concerning being dark. At the top it started raining  heavily and was very slippery. The way down was covered in scree and basically was horrible  we made it to our tent at 1:00am I was exhausted however it was a great achievement. The next day I walked to the car feeling relieved. Under different conditions I would climb it again.
