Hey Bratz Fans!

Alex here, to fill everybody in on the super awesome new Bratz Action Heroez app out now! We posted a little about it on our facebook page and some of our readers wanted to know more about this amazing app! Hopefully I can cover everything with this 🙂

The first thing you’ll notice in the home screen is that thare are two ways to play! “Adventure” mode does not require a Bratz Action Heroez figurine or AR matt (Though it can be enhanced with them – I’ll cover that later) and is the “main game” of the app. “Virtual Experience” mode has several features involving the figurines and matts, which are not only fun on their own, but can also enhance gameplay in “Adventure” mode, which again, I’ll cover later in this piece.

First up, here’s Adventure Mode!

In Adventure mode, you play as Yasmin (Unless you have any of the figures & mats for other characters, in which case you can switch and play as any of the ones you’ve unlocked with the mat) who is now an Action Hero, and are introduced to the city of Passionview. After fixing a broken fountain, you meet Evilla Vanderbelt (pictured above), the villainess of the game whose mission is to suck all the color out of Passionview, and eventually the world! The first step to stopping her is to destroy her troll-esque minions that are wreaking havoc all around the city! To do this, you run around, hunt them down and use your super powers (Depending on which doll you’re playing as; Yasmin’s tornado twirl, Cloe’s speed dash, Shira’s angel flight, Roxxi’s fire whip, or Phoebe’s ice shield!) and the kicking action to destroy them all! Since the game has only been out for about two days now, it’s still in version 1.0, so your next mission after killing off the minions is still locked, but we’re excited to play it when the first update comes out! For now, I’ll cover some of the other exciting features in Adventure mode.

The city of Passionview is totally huge, and covered in beautiful Bratz billboards! So far, I’ve seen the 2010 basic art, Twisty Style Jade’s, and the four girlz in their “branding” outfits we wrote about when the BratzCam app launched. Fun little Easter Egg: One of the shirts on the clothing racks actually has some cute throwback Yasmin art on it from 2007! So far, I’ve explored enough to see Passionview’s beach, market, Colliseum, drive-in theater, the fashion district, the town center, and of course all the buildings and alleyways. Surrounding the city are several fantasy-themed locations too, though none are available yet (They’ll be unlocked in further updates), they all look really cool!

And now for the “Virtual Experience Mode”!

As you can see, there's TONS to do! Click to view full size.

This mode makes use of the cute Action Heroez figurines and AR mats included with the dolls, unlocking each character, as well as six fashions for each, individual “training” minigames, and more!

When you choose the fashion option and scan your figure, you insantly unlock their fashion line – six outfits that you can now wear in Adventure Mode, as well as “Party Mode” (Which I’ll cover next). I’ve only got Yasmin, Cloe, and Shira at the moment, so I’m really excited to see what new fashions the Twiins will unlock! Shira borrows Sasha’s (unreleased) Twisty Style fashion, her My Passion look, her Xpress it! outfit, “branding” fashion, fall 2013 basic look, and of course Shira’s own Action Heroez suit! Cloe’s fashions come from her fall basic doll, Twisty Style, Xpress it!, My Passion, All Glammed Up Designer Streaks, and of course her Action Heroez doll. Yasmin’s are from her My Passion, fall basic, Xpress it!, Rock, and Action Heroez dolls, plus an unknown fashion (center), with a cute striped top!

The Party Mode in the virtual experience allows you to scan more than one figure and watch them interact with each other! Each of the figures will greet each other differently, which is totally cute, and as you can see, they stay in the outfits you picked out in the fashion feature!

Each character will also unlock her own “training” minigame when scanned! These are not only super fun on their own, but with each level you pass, the character’s power actually increases in the Adventure Mode game! In Cloe’s game, you’ve got to dodge bombs being dropped while using her Speed Dash power to destroy the evil bugs and troll minions! How gross are those bugs?! LOL! Shira’s game is kind of like Action Heroez dodgeball, using her angel flight powers, you have to avoid the evil eyeballs running towards you. Yasmin’s minigame uses her Tornado Twirl to bust open boulders and unleash the flowers inside of them! All three are really fun, and surprisingly pretty challenging since you’re timed! It all pays off to boost your in-game power though 😉

So, that is the super awesome new Bratz Action Heroez app, available now in the app store for iPhone/iPod touch and iPad! Get it here 😀 if enough Bratzies get it (It’s free!), maybe it could even chart for a bit like the Style Starz app did last fall!

Be sure to check out my video review on the Bratz Action Heroez Yasmin, Cloe, and Shira dolls below too!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Tropisounds, who made the fab Bratz Style Starz and Bratzillaz apps for MGA last fall, have once again teamed up with our girlz to bring out the new Bratz Cam app, available now in the app store! Bratz Cam is kind of an extended, updated version of the camera feature in the Style Starz app, with more fun filters, frames, and stickers than SS!

One of the best things about the app, from a Bratz fanatic’s point of view at least, is all the new art for fall that comes with the app! In the sticker feature, there’s a ton of art for this fall’s lines that you can slap onto your pix and resize & rotate to your liking. Fans will notice stuff from My Passion, Costume Bash, and Action Heroez, plus a new mysterious set of art that we’re trying to find out more about!

How awesome are they?! Hopefully this is a new line coming out, and not just more “concept art” that the Bratz designers love to do 😛
