When I started playing Disney Emoji Blitz, I didn’t imagine it was something that I would stick with. Or perhaps I just thought it would be something fun to play as I sat on the train or needed to kill time. Yet, in some ways I think it has consumed my brain even more than Pokemon GO. That’s not to say that I’m not still playing Pokemon, but it is to say that the feverish swiping and the promise of unlocking more emojis has got me seriously addicted.
There’s something to be said for the fact that you are unlocking emojis in your keyboard as you go. This means that when I unlocked Stitch, I wasn’t excited because I got to use his powers, I was excited because I was going to be able to send ridiculous Stitch emojis to my friends and annoy the living daylights out of them. It’s a special way to entice me to want to get further into the and build my collection.
More than this, though, is the fact that missions and item collections keep you going. As I went, missions not only gave me new challenges but also taught me new ways to play. Perhaps they were encouraging me to use a power up I hadn’t tired or shoot for a combo I hadn’t managed to get yet.
All of this is fantastic because at its heart, this is a game about getting the best score possible and by teaching you these different ways to score, I found myself progressively getting better at the game.
Inherently, unlocking the more expensive emojis means that you are going to get more points because they are worth more when scored during a play round. This means, that, as you can see below, Stitch is worth more than Mickey. This doesn’t necessarily mean that Mickey is useless though.
Certain missions and even certain items, require you to play with certain characters. This is a great draw to go back and play with someone old even if you just unlocked a cool new character. I never felt like I picked one and just stayed with it. There was always a reason to use my first character, Simba, or even get Pluto out for a nice walk around the match-3-or-more block.
I’m nearing level 10 now, which means I will open up daily tasks and I can’t wait to dive into that but so far I am liking everything about this game. From the item collections which open up even more emojis on your keyboard to the characters which are just begging for me to find them and attain their powers, I just keep checking my phone to see if I’ve waited long enough for that next life to appear.
Below, I’ve included Images of all the Emojis I’ve added to my collection so far. Given that the game has been out only a couple of days, it’s a sizable collection and it’s only going to grow from here.
You get lots of Mickey’s right off the bat. I personally love the dorky one with the glasses.
I love the blushing Simba. It’s such a great one to say when someone sends you a compliment…or hits on you.
All of Stitch’s are great, but I especially love the troublemaker on the bottom with the little blaster.
You’ll also get tons of items as emoji.
