DoDoGo is a tricky one. As a puzzle game, with an intuitive control scheme, there's little preventing young ones from playing the game, apart from the difficulty level. Make no mistake about it - this is a game that'll take a lot of sitting patiently, a lot of thinking, and a lot of logic if you want to complete the level.
The objective here is to help the Robo-egg to his nest, which is usually on the other side of the level. All sorts of obstacles lie in between you and the nest, from fans, which create columns of air, to huge wooden structures, and drops into the abyss below. It's up to you to make use of the limited selection of items you're given at the start of each level to create a safe path for the egg to roll through the level, because, as soon as you press play, the egg's on his own, on a bid for freedom. Each item has a number of uses in the level, so it's never entirely certain where you've got to use it - shovels can dig holes in the ground, or create ramps, while a brush can create a dust storm, or set fire to a piece of wood. With so many options on offer, a lot of thinking's required to get through the levels - and that's what makes it so great.
Brilliantly, there's nothing for parents to worry about in terms of content in DoDoGo - no swearing, violence, sex, or anything else you might not want little ones seeing.
Sadly, DoDoGo! Robo doesn't have a multiplayer mode - this is an entirely single player affair.
