Mean Girls The Game on iOS an enjoyable, easy to play game and a fantastic homage to the classic film. Mean Girls is a “tiara” – defence game that lets you take the role of the memorable cast with Cady, Regina, Gretchen, Karen, Janis, Damian, Aaorn and Kevin G all present as playable characters. Each character has their own unique playstyle, giving the game a huge amount of replayability. Set one year after the events of the original film, you are tasked with fighting off a new clique of “Plastics” from invading North Shore High by keeping them from reaching their coveted tiara.
Mean Girls The Game takes place in North Shore High with 20 levels over four different zones, the Cafeteria, Classroom, Football Field and Basketball Court. You have to assemble a team of students from the various disparate cliques across school in order to stop the plastics from reaching their goal. Strategically placing your recruits around the level is key to success, recruiting the cheerleaders, for example, will give you the ability to hit the plastics in an area, whereas recruiting the Jocks will only help you with targeting one enemy at a time. There are 19 different cliques to recruit from so while the game is easy to pick up, there is depth there for those who want to maximise their effectiveness.
If you are a fan of Mean Girls, the game rewards your knowledge by peppering the levels with intermittent trivia questions that will give you a short buff if you can answer correctly. You can also collect Power ups to raise your popularity which lets you recruit more powerful cliques. The social hooks are there too, so you can compete against your Facebook friends in leaderboards and even burn them in the Burn Book!
Mean Girls The Game is a great game for anyone who has enjoyed the film since its release 10 years ago. It is easy to pick up and play and has loads of extra attention to detail that Mean Girls fans will love. A wide variety of levels and characters to play and 19 different cliques to unlock give the game tons of replayability so you can keep coming back to it again and again.
