  • Pros: Cute characters, fun Mini mechanic

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a game in which you play as the mascot of a Japanese cell phone company. But this consumerism won't be apparent to kids in the U.S. While this game looks like a cute kids' game that's simple to play, certain levels can be somewhat maddening.

Boing Docomodake

Game Vortex

  • Excerpt: If you were wondering what's behind the Boing Docomodake name, it comes from a Japanese cell company, Docomo. Docomo's mascot is the main character in this neat little game, and the "boing" part has to do with the way you'll navigate through the game.

  • Conclusion: Obviously, Papa Docomodake has a trick or two to help him on his quest. With a tap of the stylus he can release 'Minis' that aid him when the going gets a little tough. Remember, Minis make the impossible possible!

Boing! Docomodake Review

  • Excerpt: It is tempting to use the words ‘charming’, ‘innocent’ and even ‘disarming’ to describe Ignition Entertainment’s crack at harnessing the unique features of the DS to deliver a similarly original and quirky Japanese puzzle/platformer.

Boing! Docomodake

  • Conclusion: Bevor ich Boing! Docomodake DS in den Händen gehalten habe, hatte ich noch nie von dem Spiel, geschweige denn dem Hauptcharakter gehört. In Japan ist Docomodake ein bekanntes Werbe-Maskottchen für Kommunikationsmedien.
  • Pros: bunte 2D-Grafik, nette Effekte, Retro-Charme, niedlicher Soundtrack, passende Soundeffekte, Touchscreenunterstützung, einfachste Handhabe, süße Story, spaßige Rätselkost, viele Ideen, Jump 'n' Run-Elemente, gute Tutorialerklärungen, starke Lernkurve, simpelste Menüs
  • Cons: nichts Neues, wenige verschiedene Lieder, Touchscreenunterstützung, einfachste Handhabe, dürftiger Umfang, jederzeit recht einfach
