    Captain Toad Treasure Tracker Special Book DLC offers a lot of fun for only six euros. You get to play in co-op through 18 levels. The new levels offer variety and more challenges than the original game did. A definite must buy for everyone with the game.

    It’s a great addition to a fun game and I like seeing this little port get continued support. Still it might be nice to see a full-fledged sequel if the team comes back with more ideas.

    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Special Episode not only adds more content and challenges to the original game, it brings a fantastic addition to the game that makes it an absolute charm to revisit. The high quality of this DLC is also more than enough to make everyone ask why doesn't Nintendo do this more often.

    Its new challenges are a lot of fun, and they’re different enough from the original game that it doesn’t feel like you’re merely treading old ground. For the price of £5.39/$5.99, it’s well worth it if you enjoyed the base game.

    aptain Toad’s Special Episode is a worthwhile purchase for anyone that enjoyed the original Captain Toad campaign and is looking for more of the same. The two new game modes are welcome additions that work well to freshen up the experience, however if you were turned off by the simplicity of the base game, nothing in this DLC will change your mind.

    Get ready for adventure again with this bite sized extra episode for our pint-sized rambler, great value at the price of a London pint.

    Thanks to the light (but sometimes rather dazzling) cooperative help of Toadette and a few level design jewels, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker gets even more brillant with this DLC, somehow too episodically though. Its crown of puzzle-platformer king remains nevertheless absolutely deserved.

    Mostly directed at people playing in 2-player-co-op, which I didn't know before (I bought it together with the main game). If you're on yourMostly directed at people playing in 2-player-co-op, which I didn't know before (I bought it together with the main game). If you're on your own, it's obviously not as much fun, and the two Toads don't always control like you would like them to. It would have been nice to be able to put them in different formations (side-by-side, in a row) with the push of a button instead of having to line them up at walls.

    This DLC also doesn't really contain much new content, it's mostly just remixes of stages from the main game where you either collect crown fragments under time pressure or hunt Boo-Hoos with your headlamp(s). Oh, I forgot, you also get to replay that sequence from the main game where Toad rides the red dragon about ten times and it's always the same. Why? Coin challenges would've been more fun (preferrably new ones) instead of an auto-scroller where you're invincible and just mash A and move up and down for thirty seconds.

    I'm still giving it a 6 because of its very fair price tag, and because it's probably lots more fun with a second player. However, if you're looking for single-player content, you can skip this one, unless you really just cannot get enough of Captain Toad.
