Lil Gator Game: (The Explanation)

Lil Gator Game wears its Legend of Zelda inspiration on its sleeve as the adventure backdrop for this short and sweet game. You play as Lil Gator and step into their imagination as the younger sibling trying to gain the attention of their older sister. You and your friends have a vivid imagination and the small island world is your playscape. From the start, your friends set out to give you quests, many of which are either fetch quests style or complete something in a set time-style mini game.

Visually, Lil Gator Game, has a light and whimsical cell shaded world with textures supporting the creative use of cardboard enemies placed around the islands. As you meet with your friends, and soon other characters in the world, you will learn of a group of playground bullies that are keeping others from having fun. You spend some of the game just standing up to the bullies and thwarting their plan to rule the playground. There is a colorful world to explore and more opens up as you complete tasks.

There is a lot of text dialogue in the game, even in the early stages, but I found the quirky homages to the Legend of Zelda series and the self-aware comments to be fun and enlightening. From the get go with my time playing Lil Gator Game, I really enjoyed what was there and what I could do on the small island. There were quests to complete, a skateboard to ride, and costumes to find to change up your hat, weapon, shield, and more.

If you are looking for a Zelda-like adventure game that has an emphasis on being a better friend and working together, Lil Gator Game might be a game for you. The challenges are minimal, but the game itself is quirky and fun. I recommend checking out Lil Gator Game on the Nintendo Switch.
