Guest Post By Guinea

Heya, this is Guinea. Jamie/Spurs has been reviewing DSiWare games lately, so I figured I’d help him out. Mario vs. Donkey Kong is 800 points, and was released about 2 months ago.


Mario vs. Donkey Kong is a series with three games, one on Game Boy Advance, two (counting this one) on DS. For the most part, Minis March Again is an expansion pack for Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2, with many of the same levels. However, Minis March again costs more than a third less than Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2, which makes it a terrific bargain. Another great add-on that really makes Minis March Again great is the Construction Zone. This is basically a level creator and editor. This really adds tons of content and value to the game. Plus, you can share and download levels online, which is a great addition.

The main gameplay of Minis March Again is guiding wind up Mini Marios through levels filled with puzzles. You can’t control them, but can control their path, to an extent. A main part of Minis March Again is the pink blocks. Tapping them will cause them to disappear, while tapping an empty pink block will cause them to re-appear there. You can create stairs or paths with them, and it can get tricky. Another common object is a switch. When you step on it, small pipes and enemies can change. There are tons of other objects, all of which make Mario vs. Donkey Kong more puzzling and better. GAMEPLAY: 9/10

Mario vs. Donkey Kong also has great graphics. The stages are 2-D, while enemies and characters are 3-D. It looks really nice. Sound is ok, nothing special, although it does have a lot of voice acting. GRAPHICS AND SOUND: 8/10

Overall, Mario vs. Donkey Kong is great, and gets a……
It’s definitely worth 800 points, and can be entertaining for a while.

    Sounds a lot like Lemmings.
    So would you recommend buying the other DS games?

      Yeah, this game is a lot like Lemming, although not a rip-off.
      legoless: Lemmings is awesome. ❤
