Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon

 The boy has a lengthy report to share on one of his (current) favourite DS game: Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon.

This game is a sort of a strategy game. You need to find out how to defeat the ghosts. Also, it's a bit of a puzzle game mixed in. Some things you will need to use your noggin to find out. 

The story of the game is that King Boo (a king of the boos from the first Luigi's Mansion game) is back and over Ever Shade Valley, (which seems to be a new place in the Mushroom Kingdom) is the Dark Moon. Any ghost who comes there is good  and they like anyone. But, King Boo broke the Dark Moon and all the good ghosts became bad. They started to tear up everything they saw. Then, we go to Luigi's house. We see him laying on his chair. The TV starts going on. Then, a guy comes up on the screen - he's called Professor Egad. He says "Luigi!" Luigi runs back to his chair and bumps his head. Then, Professor Egad says "Luigi, all the good ghosts became hostile. Why are you on the floor? We'll need to defeat these evil ghosts if we want to save Ever Shade Valley. Stay still, I'm preparing the Pixelator." That's the beginning of your game.

 These three pictures I have here are three of the most common ghosts. The green ghost is called Greenie. It says in their research that they like to tinker with things. The red grumpy ghost is called Slammer. He's stronger than Greenie. His research says "They may look like ruthless brutes but they have a tender heart of gold - just don't let them give you a round of applause." (This means they'll slam you with their hands and create a loud bang that will hurt you.) The blue skinny ghost is called Hider. They're weaker than Slammers but more powerful than Greenies. They like to hide a lot, as their name indicates. There's also a bunch more ghosts that you encounter later on in the game. I may post the ghosts later. 

When you beat the fourth level, you will unlock a mode called Scare Scraper. This will allow you to team up with friends online and go into Scare Scrapers finding ghosts. There are three different modes in it. The first mode is called Hunter. In order to reach the next floor, you'll need to kill every ghost on the map. The second one is called Rush. Find the exit quickly before time runs out. Collect time pieces (which look like stop watches) to increase your time. The third mode, which I like the most, is called Polterpup. Use your dark light device to find the paw prints of the polterpups and find every one and kill them. Every five floors will give you a boss battle, which is basically the main thing that is keeping me playing this game. It will give you a chance to find a new type of ghost but it's completely random who will come. 

Here's a tip about Scare Scraper: do twenty five floors of any mode and you get the mode "Endless" of the mode that you did. It creates an Endless Scare Scraper that won't stop until you fail. 

This tip is about capturing ghosts: if you are trying to dodge any ghost attacking you, press the B button to do a dodge to dodge all attacks and take no damage.
