iCarly (or iCarly: The Game) is an Adventure video game loosely based on the TV series of the same name. The Wii Version of the game was developed by Blitz Games, while the Nintendo DS version was developed by Human Soft. The game was released in North America for Nintendo DS on October 27, 2009, and for Wii on October 20, 2009. Both versions were also released in Europe and Australia in November 6, 2009.

Gameplay[edit]

Based on the Television series, iCarly is about a girl named Carly Shay who creates her own web show called iCarly with her best friends Sam and Freddie while her dad is in the Navy. Carly's videos that are uploaded on the iCarly site are being deleted, and it turns out that Nevel has taken down their website. So Carly and her friends have to get their website back by playing 10 Mini-games, presented as show skits, and they allow players to work with the characters through new adventures. The iCreate mode lets players add their own touches to the webisodes by swapping out props, characters, color schemes, audio, intros, outros and other elements. Up to four players can either compete or cooperate to complete the skits and earn Web-Creds, which can then be used to purchase new items, props, accessories and locations from in-game websites.

Reception[edit]

Critical Response was generally negative. Although some praised the game's option to create webisodes, it was criticized for being too short, with the possibility to complete the game in a couple of hours.[1] Colton West of Game Thirst rated the game a 1/10. Saying that the game was simple for a toddler to play, Colton criticized the game's repetitive gameplay, presentation and badly recorded audio.[2]

A sequel, iCarly 2: iJoin the Click, was released for the Wii and Nintendo DS in 2010.[3] That game was also received negatively.
