GameSpot E3 2008: Dora the Explorer: Dora Saves the Snow Princess Impressions

GameSpot writes: "You know you were waiting for it, and now, we finally got a chance to get our hands on this hotly anticipated platformer. OK, so maybe you weren't perspiring over the possibilities, but truth be told, we had a good time playing Dora Saves the Snow Princess on the E3 2008 show floor. The game is targeted at players between the ages of 3 and 5 (and, apparently, childlike game journalists like us), and looks like a natural extension of the popular cartoon franchise.

Dora Saves the Snow Princess is a platformer that makes good use of the Wii remote. In this case, you hold the remote vertically, and tilt it from side to side to move the famous bilingual youngster left and right. To jump, you press the 2 button. It's simple enough, but there are other contextual actions to perform as well. Sometimes, you may pass by hidden treasure caches, which will glow as you near them. By pressing 2 when the object glows, you will send Boots the monkey, Dora's constant companion, to recover it. In most of these cases, Boots will dive into a snowdrift and produce the collectible snowflakes hidden inside."
