DodoGo! Robo review:

DodoGo! Robo (DSiWare)It is rare that I get a chance to review DSiWare games, especially since the Nintendo 3DS has been released. Because of this, it is so difficult find such amazing games like DodoGo! Robo from Neko Entertainment. Do not be scared by the unique name. It is a fun puzzle game that includes mind-bending mechanics. Players have to save endangered eggs as they traverse some insane environments. These levels are filled with traps and you have to use the handful of items to guide those eggs to the finish line.  At 200 DSi Points ($2), this DSiWare game is low in cost and huge in value.

In the small download of DodoGo! Robo, there are over one hundred levels.  Just think about that. That is about two cents a level, a ridiculously good value. The tutorial levels are easy, as they should be, but some of the later ones encompass a lot of work to save those poor little eggs. You have to jump them, use pinball style bumpers, set fires and deform the terrain just to keep them from falling to their imminent death.  You do have the ability to pause the action and replace some of the items you have placed. I found myself seeing the placements even before I used them during some of the later levels. That means I was taught well how to play, which is great for such a complex title.

DodoGo! Robo (DSiWare)The visuals are simple, but it does not deter from the quality.  It allows you to stay focused on the task at hand. As for the audio, it does not fair so well. I almost had to turn it off by the end of the game due to its lack of variety.  I found myself hearing the song on some levels so many times I couldn’t stand it anymore.  But this is a small issue that is easily cured. Unfortunately, I did not play the first title in the DodoGo! series, so I cannot compare the two games.

Although the DSi Shop can be a place filled with games that you may never heard of, there are many hidden gems. DodoGo! Robo is definitely one of those games. Neko Entertainment has released a low cost, solid puzzle game that anyone can enjoy.  Just make sure that you have a stylus and one that can be used heavily.  I played this game so much, my hands started to hurt, and that is far from a bad thing.  Use the 200 DSi Points and download this game. DodoGo! Robo is more than worth it at many times the price.

Maestro! Green Groove (DSiWare)

Maestro! Green Groove
Available Platforms: DSiWare, iPhone
(reviewed on DSi)
Game Developer & Publisher: Pastagames & Neko Entertainment
Release Date: June 28, 2010
Official Website: www.nintendo.com

Review Summary:
Ever played a side-scrolling music-rhythm game? Chances are, you haven’t. Not like in Maestro! Green Groove. The colorful 2D platform transcends both side-scrolling games and rhythm games in controls and presentation. It’s a pleasant surprise. The low $5 cost from the DSi Shop doesn’t ask for too much of an investment in return for a fulfilling game. Although the single-player game isn’t too long, there is plenty of room for player improvement with the stat tracking feature and a Free Play mode. Maestro! Green Groove offers a colorful cast of characters (such as Peppy to Stacatto), in a unique game worth adding to your digital DSi game collection.

Faceez – review

Faceez
Available for Nintendo DSi
Game Developer and Publisher: Neko Entertainment
Release Date: February 22, 2010
Official Website: e-neko.com

Review Summary:
Finding games on the DSi Shop can be tough with the lack of demos. Faceez from Neko Entertainment is worth looking into at only two dollars. The animation and picture manipulation game is not a huge investment, but has some very endearing qualities. The large amount of possible combinations and hilarious animations can create some very funny pictures. Overall, Faceez is well worth your time and money. It’s easy to use for just about anyone, including the non-gamer.
