Achievements are extra challenges added into video games that sometimes carry a point value or unlock bonus material, and are sometimes solely for bragging rights.
Some television shows are ripe for interactive adaptations. Like Grey's Anatomy, or The Young Ones.
Whether making pinatas do the dance of love or breeding two Pokemon together, making fictional creatures make the fictional creature with two backs is a popular game concept.
Anthropomorphism is the concept of an object, concept or character that has human qualities or traits, such as speech, a level of intelligence similar or higher than a human's and self consciousness. "Anthro" means "of human" and related to the concept of humanity.
Taking its place in the garden food chain, the phobia-
fuelling Arocknid preys on others in the insect family while itself being hunted by small mammals and amphibians. Just as well it's an expert at legging it.
Artificial Intelligence, or AI, commonly refers to the programmed behaviors of NPCs in a game, whether it's the fact that a soldier takes cover behind a wall in Gears of War, or that townspeople cheer upon your arrival to their village in Fable.
Artificial Life is a video game concept in which beings or creatures are put into the same environment that player is in. Depending on how the player interacts with these virtual creatures (who are programmed with emotions, wants, and needs) and the world around him/her, the Artificial Life will reflect that through their behavior.
The dusk-loving Badgesicle always looks for gardens where other night-dwellers will keep it company. By all means welcome it in, but don't be surprised if it tucks into some of your smaller (and cuter) species.
You're unlikely to find a more visibly, unreasoningly happy Piñata than the Barkbark. To get best results, take everything you know about canine likes and dislikes and put that knowledge into practice here.
A dam-building semi-aquatic rodent. Beavers have poor eyesight, but keen senses of hearing, smell, and touch.
A proprietary video codec (.bik/bk2 extension) developed by RAD Game Tools and used in a very large number of video games.
This Pinata is very neat and tidy. It likes to buff it's shell to a shine and lacquer its spots, and just eyelashes don't just naturally curl like that, you know?
While not too keen on its fellow simians, the Bonboon does have a definite talent for calming trouble in the garden. Of course, its troublesome Sour nature will need to be suppressed with a lesson in humility first.
Combining or raising animals, plants, or any variant of living items into a child or new item.
Easy to attract to your garden, but just as easy to lose to the appetite of a Pretztail, the Bunnycomb has no real option but to live life for the moment. Favourite food: root vegetables, favourite colour... orange.
The steely Buzzenge tends to pretty much ignore all non-winged types of Piñata. It's an efficient hunter of smaller birds as long as it rules the roost, but may struggle when other birds of prey begin to arrive.
Barely keeping its bulbous body aloft, the Buzzlegum drifts lazily around the garden. If treated with care and properly equipped it can produce valuable honey, but beware of its ongoing feud with the humble Raisant.
Mind those jaws! And the spit! And hooves! You can see why that barbarian fellow ended up socking one of these in the face. Plainly some folks around here have more affection for the, er, noble desert steed.
Clearly Sparrowmints do like butter. So much so that minimal effort will prompt their evolution into a brand new species: the musically inclined Candary, friend of the Diggerling (but not such a fan of the Buzzenge).
Many games have had collectible cards as a part of the gameplay.
A character in the game actually increase in size. This may be a temporary or permanent transformation.
Special codes or button combinations used to gain powers or advantages in a game. Generally hidden.
This Pinata is perfectly adapted to its life. It has strong flippers to pull over land and through the water. It has strong jaws for feeding and it has a tough shell for... er. Well, obviously to protect it from... er birds. Yes birds flying overhead, carrying... anvils, and er... pianos.
The stuff of Piñata legend. Most gardeners can only dream of a Chewnicorn resident, so strict are these gem-hungry creatures' requirements. However, their healing touch is a great reward for all that hard work.
The Chippopotamus needs such a specialised living environment - and so much food - that attracting one could involve a redesign of the entire garden. Be sure that your other Piñatas don't get under its feet...
A fabled prehistoric pinata.
Cinnamonkeys don't need much in life, just a reliable supply of their favourite foodstuff and easy access to trees for swinging and climbing purposes. Maybe also a suave hat, depending on the circumstances.
Not usually to be found roaming the wilds of Piñata Island, Cluckles can be be picked up at the local pet emporium. Their hatching instincts and desirability to predators (harsh but true) should justify the expense.
You may not think it when the Sour Cocoadile barges into your garden with jaws gnashing, but it's an easy-
going and helpful Piñata once tamed. Even if it never overcomes its regrettable weakness for waterfowl.
Limited editions of games that include extra "perks" like Making of DVDs and a nice and shiny tin with extra box art
