FROM THE ZOO, TO A PLACE THAT'S TOTALLY NEW.
It's a zoo break, with Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria headed for the Isle of Madagascar. Play as Alex, Marty, Gloria, Melman and the crafty penguins. Adventure through action-packed chapters. Roar, kick, bounce and spin as you learn to survive the wild. Interact with totally new characters and locations unique to the game.
- Relive the Film and Beyond — Fighting for survival has never been this much fun. Players control one of four main characters from the movie – Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Gloria the hippo and Melman the giraffe as they overcome obstacles, interact with film and game-exclusive characters, and face off against enemies.
- Get Your Groove on as You Go — Players develop new skills as they take the role of each zoo animal, helping Alex maximize the power of his claws, roar and double-jump; pumping up Marty's jump, back kick and stealth crawl; learning Gloria's butt smash and swimming move; and perfecting Melman's double-sneeze jump and hilarious head-in-the-sand hiding maneuver.
- Rock the city and rule the jungle — Players test their animal abilities as they explore a variety of diverse environments in mini-games and 14 action-packed chapters, including "Marty's Escape" from the Central Park Zoo, "Operation Ship Sneak" on board a giant cargo ship, and "Lemur Rave" with the exotic animals in the jungles of Madagascar.
- The Fun is Never Done — Players can improve their performance as they replay chapters and try to beat their best time. The Nintendo DS game also includes platform-exclusive wireless multiplayer mini-games.
- Touch and Play – Players can use the Nintendo DS touch screen to switch characters in the middle of levels and to play wild mini-games exclusive to the DS version, including "Gloria Rolling" and "Penguin Fishing," where players must help a penguin stay afloat on an iceberg as he catches fish.
