Dora Bike: Gaming Revolution On Ng

New Topic Respond to this Topic

I recently stumbled upon a canned game in the Flash Portal, called Doras Bike.

This game is similar to Newgrounds legends such as Mario Bike and Pokemon Bike Adventure, but don't let that fool you, this game brings many new and exciting features to the table.

Now, you begin the game with a rather short introduction that features Dora the Explorer swinging on a rope. Her never ending smile implies that she is very happy to be featured in this game. The preloader itself will stare into your soul as you wait for the bar to fill.

The game gives you three options at the main menu. Start a new game, play more games, or get free games for your site. That's right, the people who made this game are so nice that they even offer to make more, just for free! How nice of them.

Now, this is where the fun begins. Press the New Game button. You will be greeted with a How-To in the background. The game is easy to play, sort of similar to Happy Wheels, but don't let this fool you, as much as you would want to fire a harpoon through Dora's head, or throw her monkey into a pit of spikes, this game won't let you. In fact, there's no way to damage Dora at all! Isn't that wonderful?

The game graces you with the option to turn off the sound, but why would you? The music is excellent. It repeats itself, but you can never get tired of that dumb jingle.
There's also a restart button, but you only need that if you get stuck. There's simply no other way to fail a level!

Dora is completely invulnerable to any damage, and she shows this off by not wearing a helmet. You can land on her head and all she will do is look at you and smile. That's right, this game breaks the fourth wall.

The level ends when you go off the screen to the right. Presumably, Dora reaches her destination. The next level starts after you get scored.

After about five or so levels, with the same exact background, the game ends. Now, this is confusing. The author clearly states that "Dora The Explorer is off out for a ride on her bike as she has another adventure out though the different places around her world, she needs your help and wants you to join in the fun!"
But! The different places do not exist. It's all the same texture. This is a metaphor for what is surely hell. Even her monkey, a demon in its own right, never stops smiling.

The game features a couple of very new sound effects! If you pick up a flower, you get the Mario coin sound! I have no idea why a flower would ding, but who cares? When you pull off a trick, the Mario 1-up sound plays!

Who could resist such a great game? This will surely replace Toss the Turtle and Happy Wheels in the Pantheon of Classic Newgrounds Games.

When I have children, I will be able to let them use Newgrounds safely knowing that they will be able to play games like this.

Can you beat my high score of 59,250?

At first, I felt as though this might be a joke or a bash on the game in the portal. Oh man this is hilariously serious discussion on the game.

I blammed said game before I had known of this thread.

I was expecting you to say that it was really a spam flash by the Kitty Krew or had it actually contained porn, but this turned out to be fairly nice. I bet this is going to be blammed, if only because we on Newgrounds don't like stuff for little kids given the sheer number of penis jokes we have going around. Of course, I have probably seen worse things get submitted to the portal that actually passed judgement.

I just kept pressing right and up at the same time for every level. She just cartwheeled along merrily.

This game is mind numbingly boring

Response to Dora Bike: Gaming Revolution On Ng 2011-11-09 16:31:08


you didn't mention the best part. you can get through an entire level by holding up and right which results in dora and her bike entirely defying the laws of physics and logic. what one thinks would be smashing your head into concrete actually results in an endless series of "front flips" with which you can actually fly through the levels with.

great find op.

Too bad i didn't beat anyone at this game yet... but heres my score anyway. It's pretty close. It was 58,850!

Good job to those of you whole completed the whole levels! You've experienced a true classic.

Upon further play, it seems that there are some really advanced physics at play in this game. Both wheels are independent objects! Not only that, but from a complete stop, Dora takes time to accelerate.

I still haven't figured out why Dora is picking up flowers, of all things. There has to be a deep meaning, I'm just not classy enough to see it.

Glad you guys enjoyed this.

So true

Get behind the wheel and that same attention to detail shines just as brightly, earning Dora's Bike its billing as 'The Real Bike Simulator' and then some.Pokemon Bike Adventure's strength lay in its cornering as you struggle against its tire deformation system and Mario Bike is about the experience at the redline as you hit maximum velocity, but this game is built to perfection. Dora Bike's genius is in its braking zones as well as it's highly detailed maps and bikes. It's here that GT5's fantastic physics show their worth. With many front and backflips to be done this game not only could win the hearts of Newgrounders, but also a gold medal in gymnastics! That's violently clear from the first moment you go under the hood and flesh out the BMX. Hit the pedalss and it's likely to fishtail widely as it struggles to lose the kind of speed that the bike was never designed for (yet Dora clearly was!), leaving you flailing into the corner and thinking to yourself that the supercharger you just strapped on may well have been a step too far, but it's all in the fun, isn't it? The music is just a amazing as it's gameplay! Dora's Bike's tempo content each movement and are movement-related. This relationship of pulse - a moderate scherzo and flowing Adagio for example - throws a gigantic through-line over the movements which is maintained in a buoyant reading of the choral finale that comes to life on, and is sustained by, one breath, oh my, how immaculate tones, oh that sound, mmmmmm....

You sir have introduced me to my soulmate

If people right clicked during game play we could have all discovered it was simply an alt of another cookie cutter game. Pretty sad really.
