Doras World Adventure





Doras World Adventure 


I really enjoy finding good, wholesome, and fun children’s video games to recommend to all ya’ll. Dora’s World Adventure from Global Star Software is based on the Dora the Explorer franchise that I had some real high hopes for. There have been some wonderful Dora the Explorer games that have been rated ‘EC’ (Early Childhood) by the ESRB. Dora’s World Adventure on the Gameboy Advance (GBA) is rated ‘E’ for Everyone. Realistically that means the lessons taught in this game are not overt. Dora is taking a trip around the world with Swiper to return the Friendship Bracelets he swiped. France, Tanzania, Russia, and China are all visited. The game box even includes a Friendship Bracelet for the child playing this game.

The graphics in Dora’s World Adventure are generally bright and colorful. All of the different lands have quite a few themes that accurately match that area of the world (or what that area of the world is most known for). Swiper behaves himself in this game, and does not steal anything while the player is controlling Dora. The details in a kids game is actually must better than I expected. The models of Dora, and Swiper are done very well.

Due to previous Dora the Explorer games on the Gameboy Advance from Global Star Software, I had some low expectations in the sounds department. I came away completely shocked. The sound bytes from the characters were well timed, well placed, and worked to this game’s advantage. The music is classic Dora the Explorer music that is quite cheerful. I heard no offensive sounds in this game at all. Learning a few phrases in other languages was nice as well.

Dora’s World Adventure is essentially a couple of different mini games set in different areas. There is some matching of specific shapes, or finding a certain item in order to progress. Most of these tasks are taken care of within a matter of seconds. Most children who have played any form of video game in the past will easily be able to beat this game in under an hour. As an adult I took care of it in under twenty minutes. The game can be replayed, but it is a very short lived experience.

The controls all work beautifully, and are geared towards the younger members of the family. The layout of the controls also works well. The designs of the maze style levels are quite nice in my humble opinion. Traversing from one country to another was a bit repetitive, but the other mini games were fun.

Matching shapes, finding the exact item, and counting are some of the lessons found within this game. I found this non-violent game is safe for everyone in the family. I would like to see a sequel to this game, especially if it was on a home console, and the length was increased. It was a real joy to play and review a game like Dora’s World Adventure.
