Homebound is an absolutely delightful little twist on WarioWare, which sees a little girl trying to find ways to occupy herself while being stuck in her house during lockdown.
In Homebound you follow the story of Sophie, a young girl with a vivid imagination, who is struggling to keep herself entertained during lockdown. Her father is a little busy at the moment (working from home), but he’s promised to play with her once he’s done. You need to help Sophie stave off boredom by playing make-believe minigames, helping to pass the time until her father finishes work.
There are three areas of the house you can play in, each with seven differently themed WarioWare-esque microgames to play through. They’re not particularly tough, but they are a lot of fun and full of childlike imagination.
Lockdown hasn’t been fun for anyone, but Homebound reminds you to make the best of what you have. Spending a little time with Sophie is an incredibly wholesome and uplifting experience that’s guaranteed to brighten up your day. Highly recommended.
