The game looks extremely good for a DS game, and features some great 3D cinematics. The minigames are quite fun and can start to challenge younger gamers as they make their way through the title. The best feature is the trivia that’s inserted throughout the game as well as the real video of actual puffins in their natural environment, building a connection to what’s taking place in the game and the real world.
