If your kids or adults (like me!!) enjoy the Disney series of Phineas and Ferb then this will be a real favourite.
You can play either of the two title characters and switch between them by touching the appropriate icon on the screen, you need them both as they have different skills which you need to play the game also pretty cool is a feature where you use them together to climb things or reach things by balancing on each others shoulders.
Game starts with two characters looking for parts to try and build a rollercoaster, once you find the parts you build and ride your coaster.
Usual side scrolling game play with A button to jump,X to run and direction pad to control movement, climbing and swinging is done by touching the screen it time to discs that light up to make the characters move up ladders and across ropes, Basically you take the boys through scenes picking up pieces of machinery to finish crazy projects. There are also mini games through the main game such as avoiding Candice in the maze and putting parts together to complete your coaster car, Once you complete your rollercoaster you have to ride it and collect stars to progress through the game.
SOUND AND GRAPHICS:
Looks and sounds like the cartoon with some great quotes lifted from the show a real good effort with semi 3-D graphics that are not bad at all.
I love the show and am falling for this game as it breaks the rules and combines a good basic platform story game with excellent mini games and also it is not too easy to play with lots of controls to learn and lots of things to collect an build, I have only done a very small part of this game but do not think younger children will enjoy it as it is quite complicated but fans of the show will stick with it.
Available for £24.99 from Amazon.co.uk and the same on Play.com expensive as it is a new game but pretty good fun.
