Product Description

It seems folks love those Mini Mario toys. So much so that the Mario Toy Company has expanded the line to include Mini Donkey Kong, Mini Toad and Mini Peach figures to the series. With all these toys bringing him more money than he knows what to do with, Mario decides to fulfill his lifelong dream and open a theme park called Super Mini Mario World. The opening-day crowd includes Pauline and Donkey Kong, who immediately falls head over heels for the lovely lass. The proud ape tries to show off his Mini DK toy to Pauline, but she picks the Mini Mario toy over his and the jealous Donkey Kong becomes enraged. He smashes the displays, destroys the toys and takes Pauline to the top floor of the amusement park. Players must find Pauline and save the day. Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2 allows players to create their own maps with a new level editor. Once a map is created, players can send it across the world via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Players also can use Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to download maps created by others, check out a player-ranking system and access special bonuses. These unique features are sure to be a smash hit with puzzle fans everywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Polished Puzzler... 21 Mar 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The idea of this game is to clear levels by guiding clockwork mini marios around courses of increasing complexity. Completing the levels is relatively straight forward - you can stop and start the mini marios whenever you want - allowing you to stop and think a bit. But to get a good rating, you have to collect all the coins, get all the mini marios finishing at the same time (chaining), and what's more, do it quickly. A very different prospect! Fortunately you can unlock the next level with a poor rating.

There have been two main criticisms of this game. The first is that it is too easy. I'd disagree. There's over 80 levels and, as well as completing them, there's the added challenge of completing them with a gold rating. I've contented myself with getting a silver on all levels. That's hard enough! The second criticism is that it is repetitive. On that score I'd agree. But this is a game designed to be dipped into every now and then. The controls and rules (which are very intuitive) need no re-reading. You can pick it up whenever you want and just dive straight in.

It's not new or ground breaking. But when you throw in the level designer, you've got a well rounded game, finished with the usual Nintendo polish, that is what the DS was designed for.

Hope this review was useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great combination of puzzle ideas 24 April 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is essentially a combination of two classic older games, Lemmings and The Incredible Machine. You have a group of little miniature Marios who run in predictable patterns around a landscape. You can take control of them with the stylus and can also control aspects of the environment they are in to try and get them through to the goal. It's a fascinating combination of thinking and reactions and is great fun, and the fact you can create your own levels is a superb addition.

The only two complaints I have are both about the level editor: first, you have to unlock all of the parts to build levels with by finishing the normal levels first. That might sound OK but if your main interest is in building levels you have to spend a long time playing through levels to get everything. The second problem is that the online level sharing uses Nintendo's Friend Code system where basically, every single person you want to share levels with, you have to either know in real life or contact via some other method. There is no general community like there is for other editable puzzle games (on other platforms) and this really hurts the ability to get levels noticed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another winner for the DS 31 Mar 2007
By PB TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a wonderfully addictive game. The premise (as is the case for most excellent ideas) is simple - guide "unthinking" Mario toys to safety, working through progressively harder levels, then fight the Boss at the end of each set. Yet despite being a format we've seen right from the beginning of video gaming as we know it (e.g. Donkey Kong) the game works. I'm 36 and enjoy it. My 5 and 8 year olds enjoy it.

The reason I give this game 4 Stars overall rather than 5 is because it just lacks a bit of longevity. I haven't tried the multiplayer options yet, so cannot comment on those.

This game's perfect fodder for a handheld. The DS is shaping up to be a superb choice with the growing library of brilliant "pick-up-and-play" games. So recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun puzzle-skill game 23 May 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
In Mario vs Donkey Kong you control a group of robot Marios which you must protect from danger by avoiding obstacles. It's not a traditional Mario platform game but more of a puzzle game, like Lemmings, where you have to have good skill to pull off whatever approach you decide to use on the level. You only have to save one Mario each time but the more you save, the better, because it gives you more of an advantage in the bonus game that follows the levels.

I really enjoyed Mario vs Donkey Kong. It feels like a long time since a good game like this (Lemmings-style) has been released and Mario vs Donkey Kong well fills that void. I love the level editor too, which takes a bit of practice before you can make decent levels but which, with time, will have you making clever, inventive and cunning levels and trading them online with other enthusiasts.

My only problem with the game is that I'm not sure the Mario and Donkey Kong license really works with it. When I think of Mario and Donkey Kong I don't think of this kind of game and it strikes me that perhaps Nintendo go too far to spread their characters into every game they make. That said, the charm of familiar characters certainly does add something to the experience but don't be misled that this is a platform action game - it's puzzling all the way.

A stimulating distraction that further demonstrates the variety that the Nintendo DS has to offer. Well worth adding to a good DS game collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lot of miniature mayhem and fun! 28 July 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have tried every Mario game the DS has out at the moment.... I thought this game might be a cheap spin off from the classic Donkey Kong days on the NES, but I was wrong!

It's addictive, and you cannot help but laugh out loud at the sound effects of the Mini-Marios. It is not the most challenging game of the Mario series, but the ability to design and create your own levels will keep DS addicts happy while the next installment arrives.

A lot of fun, and worth the money for playability - you'll want to go back and try the lot again!
