Review of the Kendall & Kylie Game

DISCLAIMER: THIS GAME IS ADDICTIVE
Have you ever heard of Kendall and Kylie Jenner? This may sound like a dumb question, because I’m willing to bet that 98% of you know who I’m talking about. You probably know that these successful sisters have their own clothing line, and an amazing TV show, but did you know that they now have a #1 most-downloaded app? I’ll admit I’m a huge Kendall and Kylie fan so the moment this game was released, it was already downloading on my phone.
When I first opened the app, I was surprised to see that it was very similar to Kim Kardashian’s game, which was released in 2014. It makes sense to release a very similar app after Kim’s game began making $700,000 a day. The first step in starting the game was to customize your own character, which is my favorite part. In the customizations, there were countless ways to bring your character to life. I decided on a simple white dress with stilettos and of course, the Kylie Lip Kit.
The goal of the game is to successfully navigate the messy life of Hollywood as a soon-to-be celebrity. From the very beginning you meet Kendall and Kylie at their apartments, which is very realistic to the photos I’ve seen of their homes in real life. They help you through multiple parties and photo shoots with advice and support, so after earning my first 5 stars on a photo shoot, I posed with Kendall and snapped a selfie.
Like the Kim K game, there is an enemy that you are trying to be better than. So far I have over 5000 followers and I will soon pass my dreaded enemy, Aubrey Madison. As you can see, I still have this game on my phone and I play it regularly. If you ask my friends, it has become somewhat of a problem, but I feel that it’s okay because Kendall and Kylie Jenner both follow me and like my posts all the time. But in all seriousness, I think this game will become outdated and forgotten in about a month’s time. It is too similar to Kim’s game but I must say it also has its unique qualities. So, get the game of you want to be addicted for a week and have your friends all think you are crazy! I think it’s completely worth it.
