DodoGo! Hard Mode

A little over half a year ago, Neko Entertainment released DodoGo!, a charming, decently sized puzzle game not unlike Lemmings. Now they're back with a new instalment, but is it worth another go?

The basic premise of DodoGo is still here. Your objective in each stage is to safely get at least one of the present eggs safely to the end, and you'll get better medals if you can bring multiple eggs through. You can't control any of the eggs, other than telling them to start and stop moving, but you can influence what they do by placing objects in their path like bridges, blocks and other stuff. If you do things to your eggs that they don't particularly enjoy (such as dropping them in water), they'll get displeased with you, which also influences your medal at the end. Keep your eggs happy!

There's a whole bunch of levels available (over 100, apparently), so the game will keep you busy for quite some time. If you're actually going to try to get a gold medal on each stage you'll be in for a rougher time than with the last title, because the developers did not mess around this time. Living up to its name, DodoGo! Challenge starts off much more difficult than the first game and keeps pouring it on, so if you did not play the original title, it may be wiser to start there. You've got two jokers at the start of the game which may be used to temporarily bypass any particularly nasty stages, but you'll have to beat the stages to get the jokers back should you use them.

You'll still occassionally run into a bonus level, which will reward you with additional jokers or costumes for your eggs. Extra jokers obviously come in even more handy this time around, so it's a good idea to get as many as you can just in case you find yourself in a pinch.

In the end, not much has changed in DodoGo! Challenge compared to the original DodoGo! game. The only noticeable change is that the game is geared towards people who have already played the original, as the levels are a lot more challenging this time around. Everything else is practically the same.

Conclusion

If you enjoyed the original DodoGo! and want a bigger challenge (or simply more levels), then DodoGo! Challenge should easily suit your needs. If you're a newcomer, however, it may be smarter to get the original first just in case this one's too hard or confusing for you.

More levels for a cheaper price! I would've thought this would get a higher score!
I might pick this and its predecessor up, but there are too many GREAT games I have yet to play to make this an instant-buy. :)

Didn't get the first one but I was intrigued, I might get this when it hits the US. I like difficult games with lots of levels

Loved DoDoGo! and having a sequel for it is great. It's even only 500 points!

This was obviously the second part of the originally-planned retail game. Couldn't they have just released the whole thing for 1200 points? Oh well. I have yet to play the first but it is on my "to buy" list.

I don't know why NL isn't really wild about this game. It's one of the better more polished DSi releases in my opinion. I would have thought this one being cheaper than the last would have at least got an 8....

Hi at all, i'm new on the website!!! _
I bought this AWESOME game a couple of days ago (after playing the first part!), and i found a little bug...
When i select the first unlockable costume (the one with the blonde wig), and then go into a level, the eggs have the first costume of the previous game (the one of little angel)...the same thing happens to you?

Sweet. Huh, weird bug. Oh, well. As long as you don't mind it. n_n

Is this game really hard? I haven't played the first one, as I wasn't willing to spend 800 points... Hahaha. If I were to get this, would I be really confused? Because, I don't want to buy a game and then end up not being able to pass at least 5 levels. Hehe.
