Although Gogo’s Crazy Bones is a new release, the Gogos themselves are collectible toys that have been around for years as colorful little characters that you collect and then duel against each other. Multiple series are available with more on the way this summer so there are hundreds of Gogos out there for kids to collect. Now they’ve selected 30 of the most popular Gogos and put them together to battle it out on your Nintendo DS.
You start with just a few levels and limited Gogos, but as you play you can unlock them all and experience more than 70 different levels of puzzles and battles. Much like with the physical toys, each Gogo has his own special ability and personality so choosing which Gogo to use for each challenge is a part of the fun. Some of the games will also be familiar to collectors, like Knock Out, Battle, and Basket Attacks which are playable as real world duels with the toys.
With so many Gogos to combine and plenty of levels, this game has huge potential for re-playability. My kids really enjoyed picking out who they’d use each time, paying a lot more attention to how they looked than anything else, but that’s part of what makes it fun for kids. The gameplay itself wasn’t complicated, although it took a few tries to get the hang of the controls. Shooting the Gogos through the air to smack into each other or land in baskets was a fun but not frustrating challenge. Kids will have a good time with this one, and the music is actually cute and fun to listen to so parents won’t be cringing.
