www.nintendo.com – GameCube:
more in a spellbinding new adventure.
Join Tak, plucky young shaman's apprentice and practitioner of Juju magic, on his toughest
quest yet as he struggles to defeat the evil Tlaloc and recover the elusive Staff of Dreams.
Having tricked Tak into helping him obtain the Staff, Tlaloc is using his newfound powers to
imprison Tak's friends in their own dreams. Tak must rescue each of Tlaloc's victims from
their own dream worlds, guiding them through innumerable puzzles and dangers, before
finally confronting Tlaloc in a dramatic showdown.
Fortunately, the spirited young shaman has several new tricks up his sleeve that will aid
him in his perilous quest. Now a more confident and capable sorcerer, Tak can mix
together Juju potions to create his own Juju magic. He's even mastering the ancient Juju
magic of animal morphing, which allows him to possess various creatures and have them
do his bidding. Tak also has an expanded arsenal, with new weapons including the
Thwark, Bolas, and the Dream Shaker, a powerful device used to seal rifts between the
real and dream worlds.
- Explore nine beautifully realised and varied environments
- Harness more powerful Juju abilities and brandish unique weapons
- Encounter all-new characters and nightmarish enemies

Juju a go-go.
Tak is back with a rockin' new game.
Help Tak journey through the subconscious and recover the Staff of
Dreams in this sequel to a surprise hit of 2003.
Juju potion mixing
Expanded combat system and new weapons
Nine linear environments
New to the sequel: three Juju gods and the shaman Jibolba's brother, JB
Tlaloc stole the Staff of Dreams. Tak needs the help of his friends and
the Juju to travel through the dream world and recover the Staff of Dreams.
Tak has learned much in the ways of the shaman as Jibolba's pupil. Now
it's time to apply that knowledge of the animals and new Juju potions.
Tak uses his understanding of the animals to help solve various puzzles
that stand between him and the staff. In one of the more unorthodox
sidekick moves in memory, Jibolba transforms himself into a flea and hits
the road with Tak. Deftly holding the transformed shaman between his thumb
and forefinger, Tak can fling Jibolba onto an animal. Jibolba then bites
the animal or makes it fall asleep. What the animals do in response to the
bite helps Tak solve the puzzles. For example, biting a squirrel early in
the game prompts them to throw nuts at grumpy creatures known as Woodies,
which makes the Woodies lower a drawbridge.
You'll witness this type of creativity throughout this entertaining
platformer. Not only are the scenes and puzzles well thought-out, but the
artwork and other graphic elements are top-notch as well. Tak's main
enemies. the Woodies, are minor threats compared to 200-foot drops and
Like the rest of us, Tak's time is split between the real world and the
dream world. In the dream world, the enemies are a little darker as
nightmares try to take over. Tak uses the dream world as a virtual
training ground for skills he needs on his waking quest. Tak will master
the ancient Juju magic of the animals, allowing him to possess various
creatures and turn himself into a Spirit Animal. To practice Juju, Tak
most gather and mix various ingredients from the wilds.
Tak 2 also features some amazing Dinky Games, named after the pipsqueak
who hosts them. You unlock most of the minigames and the characters who
play them as you progress through the story. Whether the Dinky game
involves snowboarding or barrel rafting, expect high-quality graphics and
gameplay as your character tries to climb to the top of the Dinky Games
The well-acted dialogue has a distinctly smart-alecky Shrek
vibe. Tak 2 is cool jungle-cat for whom an adventure cliché is an
obvious bad face-paint job.
Those new to the Tak series will be pleasantly surprised by the fun and
depth of Tak 2: The Staff of Dreams.
