Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa Video Game

Mom Central recently sent me Madagascar 2: Escape 2 Africa for the Nintendo DS to try out. The game includes the four famous characters Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria as well as the penguins, King Juilen and newcomer Moto Moto. The game is in conjunction with the brand new movie. My girls really enjoyed the game. I love that you don't have to know the movies to play along, it is a lot of fun. There are several levels and mini games to play. My youngest loved the music involved.

Based on the feature film from DreamWorks Animation, the four famous zoo animals - Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe and Glorida the Hippo - and their entire madcap Madagascar crew take players on a whole new action-packed journey to help save the African Savannah. Assuming the roles of all their favorite characters, including those crafty penguins, players must work through 12 distinct levels featuring a variety of wild adventures and fun mini-games. In addition to the diverse single-player gameplay, the Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa Video Game delivers an enhanced multiplayer tournament mode allowing gamers to participate in outlandish competitions alongside or against friends and family.

Another thing that I loved that is while my girls played, they were also learning about awareness of their environment and how they should go about taking care of it.

Here are some of the things you can do to start helping the environment. Visit to learn more ~
