Dokapon Journey and Dr. Mario Express :: DS Games Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Jun 01, 2009
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Whether you are saving people with board games and swords or saving people with giant pills, you wont be disappointed with these two games.

Dokapon Journey

Dokapon Journey is a fantastic mix between Mario Party and a RPG. In the game, you set out and race against other adventurers to rescue towns by defeating the monsters that are attacking them. To help you along the way, you can find treasure, buy new armor and weapons, and battle smaller monsters to level up. The player with the most money at the end of the game wins.


The best way to earn money is to follow the king's request and help out a specific town by defeating a monster or collecting a special item for them. Unfortunately, the town is picked randomly, which can sometimes be unfair if it pops up right next to someone. Also, movement is dependent on the luck of a dice roll. The computer in the game is very tough and always seem to have better luck than you. It will require a lot of work and smarts to beat them.


There are a few other game play modes available to mix things up a bit. The game is fun but, like most party games, needs to be played with friends in order to be really fun. Otherwise, against the computer, it can get boring and frustrating. If you like party games or have friends or family members that you play with a lot, this would be a good game for long trips.

Dr. Mario Express

If you are looking for a good way to pass the time, Dr. Mario has been a fail safe for many years. It is a classic puzzle game where you guide two colored pills down a container full of viruses and try to match four of the same colors together to get rid of the virus. The game starts off very easy but quickly becomes a tense game that requires your full attention.


As with the original Dr. Mario, you can choose to start on any level from 1 to 20. After level 25 or so, however, the number of viruses maxes out at 99 and the levels do not really get harder. Instead, you can challenge yourself by playing at a faster speed, or by taking on the computer in a head to head match.


The computer in Dr. Mario, like in Dokapon Journey, is very smart and tough to beat. However, unlike in Dokapon Journey, there is no luck involved and, if you lose, you will know that it was a fair game.


Unfortunately, Dr. Mario Express does not have online multiplayer, or any multiplayer at all, which is a major miss. Though the game is really fun as it is, it would be even better if all the practice you put into the game can be used to win against your friends and family.
