MLP Gameloft Update 3.4 Loading Screen

Loading screen for the current update (Version 3.4)

My Little Pony is an open world iOS, Android, and Windows 8 game licensed by Hasbro and developed by Gameloft. Released on November 8, 2012, characters from the show appear in the game, including the main characters and several supporting and background characters. The game also includes Sunset Shimmer and Flash Sentry, who were featured in My Little Pony Equestria Girls and the official IDW comics, as well as ponies who are not included in the show, such as Lovestruck and Forsythia. The game is free to play and supported by microtransactions, and had over 5.4 million downloads as of March 17, 2013.[1]

Development

The game's lead producer is Gustav Seymore, and the lead designer is Fawzi Mesmar.[2] Development began in January 2012.[3] Fire Chief was made available in-game in response to fan request.[4] A number of pieces of fanart have been used in the game and its advertisements; for example, an early advertisement used fanart of Princess Cadance,[5] and Octavia Melody's album page used fanart of her as a filly until June 13, 2013. There are no plans to add Button Mash, his mom, or Fluffle Puff to the game.[6]

The English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Turkish language versions of the game use the Celestia Medium Redux typeface, a fan-created typeface designed to look similar to Generation B, which is used in the typesetting of the logo and in other official material. The Russian version instead uses Calibri, the Chinese version uses a font derived from Frutiger, the Japanese version uses the font used for the episode titles in that language's dub, and the Korean version uses Eunjin.

Gameplay

Map of Equestria (Mobile game)

The map of Equestria as seen in the game.

The gameplay centers around rebuilding Ponyville and it features "placing, building, and collecting" aspects. Many buildings and shops from the gameplay are from shops that are seen based on the show. Characters can be leveled up through specific tasks. The player starts as Twilight Sparkle, and more than 46 characters are to be available, obtainable in different ways. There are multiple kinds of currencies in the game which can be used for unlocking features, and alternatively the features can be purchased.[7]

Minigames

Four minigames are available in the initial release: an apple-picking game, cloud-clearing game, star connecting game, and a ball-bouncing game. If the cloud-clearing game is played as an Earth pony or a unicorn, the pony flies using magic wings similar to those used by Rarity in Sonic Rainboom and by her and Daisy Dreams in the Glimmer Wings toy line. In March 2014, a Mine cart game was announced.

In the Equestria Girls update, a dancing minigame is added that features 3 songs: an instrumental version of the opening theme, This Strange World, and the EG Stomp. Also, 2 more songs were added later- an instrumental version of Time to Come Together and Cafeteria Song.

Objective sets

There are missions in the game which must be completed in order to progress through it. Some of the early missions include: Put Your Hoof Down, Carnival Games, Droughty Dragon, Flagged Down, Studying Hard, Taking the Cake, Cherry on Top, Cutie Mark Chronicles, Lemon Aid, and Apple Cravings.

Demo

The game was demoed at the My Little Pony Project 2012 New York fair in October 2012. Players described it as a Sims-style game in which the player starts with Twilight Sparkle and has to rebuild Ponyville. Two minigames were shown at the venue: a ball bouncing game, and a game with Rainbow Dash flying through clouds; a representative said more minigames would be available, and that the app would be free with downloadable content for purchase, and that gameplay would not require internet access.[9]

The demo features various locations from the show such as Sugarcube Corner, Rainbow Dash's cloud home, and the town hall.
