Wonder World Amusement Park 

 

Wonder World Amusement Park is all about the fun experience of going to a carnival. Throwing darts at balloons, shooting hoops, and earning tickets. The more you play a specific game the more special items you earn. On top of that there are tickets earned for how a game is played. Those tickets are used to purchase additional games, and worlds.

The graphics in Wonder World Amusement Park are surprisingly dark. The majority of the images are safe for the entire family with a few exceptions. There is a Halloween style world that will bother some. The pirates, and aliens worlds are also present, but do not have the spiritual connections the ghosts and ghouls do. Whack a mole kind of levels are present, and there is also a bumper cars mini game included. With all of that said there are plenty of safe mini games to play. The details of the graphics are not the best in this Nintendo DS game. 

Wonder World Amusement Park has some hopping music that fits the theme of the game perfectly. Certain worlds have an eerie sound to them, but others have a happy festive theme. Different characters talk about secrets of the park, and there is a magical undertone to it as well.

There are a lot of very addictive mini games (thirty to be precise) that can be played multiple times. The one issue I have with Wonder World Amusement Park is the length of time. Most gamers can breeze through this game in a weekend. The saving grace of this DS game is the multicard wireless DS feature. An improvement would be one card to compete against others, so maybe a sequel will include that.

Wonder World Amusement Park has great controls that are ultra forgiving. I went on tears with shooting hoops, and rollerball. Wonder World Amusement Park does not give the player everything because I did get off a little here and there which resulting in missing points. A few of the games are repeated in different worlds, so the thirty games is not completely different. Wonder World Amusement Park is better in this regard than say Neighborhood Games on the Wii. I found myself enjoying quite a few of the games on this cartridge especially the bumper cars.

Wonder World Amusement Park captures a lot of the carnival fun that I remember from my youth. Some of the differences are the darkness of this game, and the magical secrets. I would love to see a brighter sequel in the future. Concentration, along with hand eye coordination are the main lessons I learned from this DS game.
