Nintendogs: Dalmation And friends – Nintendo – Ds

It’s been a long time since I last swung my Nintendogs puppy around by it’s teeth with a pull rope, or watched with a sense of pride as he held the beg position for 10 seconds in the masterclass obedience trial. So a different version of Nintendogs is a welcome excuse to spend another few months throwing discs in the park and sawing ‘awww’ alot.

Nintendogs: Dalmation and friends isn’t a remake or update, just another version to add to the already available bredds. Obviously, it stars some lovely spotty dalmation puppies (although they’re bot that spotty because they develop they’re spots later on in life, don’t you know) and also five other breeds of dog already found in Nintendogs, like Terriers and Golden Retreivers.

Dalmation and Friends, then, might not be of that much interest to anyone who’s already been through the phenomenon of Nintendogs and come out the other side understanding the importance of scooping the poop that little better. Especially since the Dalmation pup is already in other versions as an unlockable secret.

But for newcomers, it means even more choice in a game that’s as essential as Metroid and Mario, even if it’s just because it’s cute puppy based genius that has you training you training your pups, entering competitions and cooing at their cuteness. Lovely.

All in all, the gameplay does get a little samey after a while, just like the other versions, but at least the graphics and visuals are great.
