Go! Go! Island Rescue! Garners Further Acclaim on the Nintendo DSi

Already the game has attracted many positive reviews with PocketGamer giving the game 8/10 with a bronze award and lauding it as“a quality DSi platform puzzler”. Nintendo Life gave the game 8/10 also and described the game as“cute, silly and full of light-hearted fun and exclamation points”. While Brutal Gamer gave the Nintendo DSi game a score of 8 and stated how Go! Go! Island Rescue is“a great little game, and for the money a worth investment for old or younger players”.

And it isn’t just the pros that have liked the game. Forums around the world have been full of praise for the Nintendo DSi version of the game.

Fulfilling Connect2Media’s ambitions to create original, multi-platform IP, Go! Go! Island Rescue has already been released on mobile, Android, BlackBerry, iPhone and as a downloadable PC game through major casual gaming portals. Late last year the award winning title made the inevitable jump to the Nintendo DSi which has expanded the already huge Go! Go! franchise.

“Go! Go! Island Rescue! on the Nintendo DSi is a genuine fun filled gaming experience,” said Connect2Media’s Product Manager, Michael Higham. “The controls are instinctive and before long you are happily‘chucking’ Dweebs to safety. The game also delivers plenty of laughs and a genuine sense of fun. From a business perspective the release marks the franchises appearance on its fourth platform making it a truly multi-platform product.”

Go! Go! Island Rescue is now available on the Nintendo DSiWare Shop worldwide for 500 points.
