Kinectimals is a Adventuring game available on the 360. It can be played in Singleplayer modes.
Kinectimals is a Adventuring game. Adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons: they provide enemy encounters that require tactics and strategy to conquor, and they create a fantasy world in which to explore and adventure.
Kinectimals can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.

Kinectimals offers an endearing space populated with friendly cubs. But its magic has had to be delivered in bite sized portions, when all I wanted to do was run free through the fields with my animal friends.
Kinectimals from Frontier is an incredibly cute cub simulator, which from its name you can deduce is a Kinect controllable experience. The opening Frontier credits give a taste of what is to follow. A beautifully rendered and playful tiger cub rolls in and out of view on a small earth like ball. It is instantly reminiscent of the Pixar's Luxo Jr where an animated angle-poise lamp appears, with childish curiosity, playing with a ball.
