Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3 ):

Dolphin Discovery moves at a snails pace, so it is unlikely to keep the attention of younger gamers. Plus the interactivity between the dolphin and the player is quite minimal, especially when compared to Puppy Playtime, another title in this Discovery Kids series. It is possible to tickle the dolphin when not in a minigame, but there isn't much in terms of trick learning or problem-solving, other than the fetch quests that other sea creatures ask you to perform.
