Zubo is an attempt to bring the grand-scale adventure of role-playing games to a younger audience. The vibrant visuals, colorful cast of characters, and action-oriented combat make the adventure immediate and satisfying, coaxing you to see what new...

The game is pretty lengthy too, though a lot of that is due to the fact that players have to constantly backtrack around the overworld to get to each new unlocked area. It can get a bit tedious and a little boring and the whole experience is very...

We're not sure what it is, but it's kind of fun.

Designed specifically for pre-teen gamers, Zubo offers players a quirky mix of rhythm-action and traditional role-playing elements. Developed by EA's casual Bright Light studio, Zubo sends gamers to the land of Zubalon, where Lego-esque characters known a

Naaaa, naaaa, na naaaah, naa! *boom* *boom, spish, boom* Superbell! Are you challenging me to a dance-off?!?! *Grrrrrr* It's a dance off folks!!!!! It's the Thriller, the dance of healing, the juggling fart blast, and my personal favourite, the hat...

Now, I must get back to my dance moves. I suspect that the apocalypse will involve drumnbass and some hefty dubstep..

If it's one thing I've learnt about reviews, through reading those of others and writing my own, it's that it is easy to write a good review about a bad game and very easy to write a bad review about a good game. It has very little to do with the...

I enjoyed it, for all its faults and bad choice of demographic I was happy to play it just for the battles. While there's depth in the action there's not a lot in the single section to keep your attention for more than an hour or so in one sitting. My...

Zubo for DS Review - Zubo is an extremely solid RPG for beginners that only really suffers because it's something kids won't be familiar with.

Save the world with the power of music.

A wonderfully simple game with lots of humour and decent longevity.

Zubo is to Elite Beat Agents, what Puzzle Quest is to Bejeweled. The idea of a rhythm-based RPG sounded interesting, but the EA logo on the box made me cautious. However Zubo turned out to be a surprisingly decent game for the intended target...

Bottom line: Zubo is a good buy for younger gamers with reading ability and attention spans.

Rhythm Playing Game

Sadly we haven't seen enough rhythmic scrapping incorporated into the one entertainment medium that could really do it justice. Considering how integral a good scrap is to the vast majority of video games, and the proliferation of rhythm-based titles...

Cute games abound on DS, but few actually have substance to back up their loveable appearance.

Product Specifications

Players enter the world of Zubalon to help the colorful and zany inhabitants, the Zubos, defeat an evil force which is bent on world domination. Players can befriend the Zubos they meet along the way, feed and nurture them, help them gain skills and strength, and assist them in their battles with the enemy, the dastardly Zombos. A key element to Zubo is music, which is intrinsic to Zubalon from its tuneful plant life through to its currency of musical notes. The player will use the music to drive the battles forward, synchronizing their stylus action and tapping in time with the musical beats to win! With 55 Zubos available to find and recruit to a player's squad, plus a wealth of interactions and mini-games, and the world of Zubalon to explore, Zubo offers a deeply rewarding Nintendo DS experience.
