Dodo Peak Review
Posted: 8 weeks ago, last updated 7 weeks ago.
Author: Andy Robertson.
You encounter snakes, monkeys and obstacles including moving spikes, lava, rolling boulders and narrow walkways. There are fifty levels in a variety of biomes: tropical islands, sunset hills and volcanoes. There are also power-ups for extra speed or strength that can be found in each level to help find the babies.
After collecting a baby bird it will follow you through the level until you find all of them. This adds a novel twist as you need to then look after your baby as well as yourselves from the various hazards.
A level is complete when you collect all of the dodos. You can then use collected coins to unlock new Dodo bird costumes. When playing a level you are timed and if it was fast enough it can appear on the online leaderboards.
