OverviewOverview

Dodo Peak is a platform game where you play as a dodo bird, rescuing your babies scattered across each level. The simple layout and clever design is reminiscent of the classic QBert game, and presents streamlined logic puzzles to solve. The hand crafted challenges and clear visuals make this a fun game for the family.

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.
