  1. It’s hard to knock Photo Dojo: its versatility and use of the DSi’s functions are superb, and the potential to create fighters based on friends, figures and anything else you can photograph is enough to forgive its simplicity and lack of gameplay modes.

    It's daft, clever, simple and cheap. We want to see more DSiWare games like this one. [May 2010, p.90]

    It’s a wonderfully simple, engaging, and absolutely hilarious experience, it’s just a shame that you can’t share what you’ve made with anyone else, nor can you play multiplayer across two systems instead of huddling into a cramped ball to compete against friends.

I enjoyed my time playing this, but it felt limited. I wanted more. You take photos of yourself filling fighting positions, then you take photos to be the background stage. I wish that you could have a larger cap on the characters you could make, and there needed more fighting styles. One thing I'd like to have seen was a level editor where you create custom waves of enemies. It needed local multiplayer with multiple devices, online multiplayer and single player against a bot. (There is single player, but you fight waves instead of one strong enemy.) I think all of these things warrant a sequel, but I'm WAY too late to this party. About 6 years late. Again, a good concept, but limited by the DS and the time it was released. Full Review »

Interestingly, the multiplayer only required one system as the two of us each held one side of the DSi. Very basic, but again, it was a free joke game. Full Review »
