Random story: I was at a house party the other night (in Auckland), and ran into the interface designer for this game. I tell ya, he seemed pretty stoked about it. I must say I'm a little bit creeped out by a 20-something male who's super enthusiastic about ponies. Wadaya gonna do eh?

I for one, welcome our new pony overlords onto our mobile devices!
Need for Speed Most Wanted surely will loose it's prime time and I'll probably spend most of my time on my iOS device building my own Ponyville!

Truly love the proper involvement of Gameloft doing proper work on this title (such as he fan service here and there) as they know that Hasbro, Lauren Faust, bronies and everypony else looking over their shoulder (in)directly pressuring them to not screw this up.

Well, at least in the art and music department from what I've seen so far.
Obviously, this game will have it's typical Gameloft freemium model all over it. No problem and can totally live with that nor do I expect the world from this game. But it will be quite entertaining I am sure!

Probably not, but... would there be real voice work in there from some of our most beloved ladies?
(Brony queen Tara Strong, singer in her own Canadian band Andrea Libman, and so on.)
Yeah, definitely too loud! haha that is one of my all-time favorite MLP scenes

Hhhhhhhhhhh....
Yaaaaaaay! ...too loud? FIXED IT


I think this will suck like all Gameloft freemium games, but for the sake of it being an MLP game I'll at least try Hoping it'll have some voice acting from the real voice actors.

Generation 1.
We are now up to Generation 4.
There have been multiple resurrections by Hasbro and changed both the premise and art style by each iteration.
Personally, I love the latest style (developed by Lauren Fast) the best.
The earlier generations weren't really sophisticated or special animation wise, and that goes for the stories and character depth as well.

I am not him, just saying that I am a 30 year old male who is into the show as well. My apologies for the confusion.
The appeal is entirely personal and varies from individual to individual.
So this scenario will explain how I got into the whole ordeal: it started with avoiding it like with a neutral stance at first.
Come on... a show for little girls? Sure, I am an equine rider / lover but that wasn't enough to win me over.
More and more (male) friends around me got into it and out of pure principle that made me ignore it even more.
But after a few months I reached a breaking point and finally gave in to see what all the darn fuss was all about.

After watching the pilot, it seems I was mistaken about this show.
What I remember from My Little Pony (even though I never watched it) is that it's filled with one dimensional characters not really do anything apart from having tea parties every single episode.
This doesn't seem to be the case for the pilot I watched. Apart from the amazing direction in art (both visual and audio) it was well written and properly voice acted. The characters actually got presented in such a way as to indicate they are all but one dimensional with growth and development in mind.
The curiosity to see if it could keep this momentum and even get better further on made me watch more and more episodes.

To my big surprise the characters do actually develop and show more and more layers for each of the six individuals. The show actually matures further on, yet remains compatible for the younger audiences.
It has a few in jokes that are related to the fandom, but also has tons and tons of movie references left and right. And I don't mean suggestive ones either, but actual confirmed references.
2001: A Space Odyssey? Check. The Big Lebowski? Check. Just to name a few well known examples.
So even though the stories are kept simple, there is tons of content and too much going on for little girls to comprehend. Especially when it comes to the complexity and the growth of the six main characters.
