Atari 2600Mr. Do is hectic and fun, but less strategic than Dig Dug. The graphics and sound are above average, and the control is quite responsive. Mr. Do has four skill levels.
ColecoVisionEin Spiel, das nicht nur, aber sicher vorrangig, Kinder ansprechen wird. Nicht allzu schwer, zumindest dann nicht, wenn man auf der untersten Stufe spielt.
SNESWhile Mr. Do! may bore certain Doom and Defender fans unwilling to give a ³quiet² gaming experience a chance, video game purists, those with a taste for the classics and those with a fondness for non-violent, non-threatening games will probably enjoy this game.
ColecoVisionAlso neat is the fact that eating all eight cherries in a group at one time scores more points than when you eat even one of them on a separate occasion. These and other strategies give Mr. Do! a little more depth than Dig Dug. Nothing against Dig Dug, it is certainly one of the all-time classics, but Mr. Do! deserves some attention as well.
ColecoVisionThe graphics are simple, but quite good. The boards are colorful, but the character sprites are one color and the animation is a little choppy. The music and sound effects are very good and close to the arcade. The gameplay is great—all the elements of the arcade game are here, except for the extra man Mr DO! animation. Highly recommended if you have a Coleco.
SNESDer einzige große Haken ist der Preis, denn ein 15 Jahre altes Spiel zum Vollpreis von 130 DM anzubieten, ist schon ein ganz schöner Hammer. Wer die Kosten nicht scheut, wird sich aber garantiert über einen zeitlosen Klassiker freuen können, den er wohl noch des öfteren aus seiner Sammlung kramen wird.
SNESLike all normal people, I've always been terrified of clowns. The main character in Mr. Do is a clown, and on the boxcover he looks like one of those evil clowns that hide under your bed with a knife! After summoning enough courage to review this game, I found Mr. Do to be pretty good after all. This game originally appeared in 1982 as a fast-moving Dig Dug clone. To its credit, it does have some original elements. Instead of inflating monsters, you destroy them with a magic ball that bounces around the maze until it hits something. Instead of having to eliminate all of the monsters, stages are cleared by collecting all of the fruit, giving the game a Pac-man flavor. Mr. Do's graphics are colorful and vibrant, but I could barely tolerate its circus-style music. A fun head-to-head two player mode is also included. Just be sure not to leave this game on overnight, or the clown could potentially escape from the television screen and kill you in your sleep.
ColecoVisionColeco prided itself on its arcade-to-home conversions, but this one falls a little short. In the arcade Mr. Do was a colorful clown, but here he's just solid white. His magic ball had a lot more visual pizzazz in the arcade; it's little more than a bouncing pixel here. The maze is well defined however and the bonus items look sharp. In the final analysis, Mr. Do succeeds in taking the Dig Dug formula to the next level. It's a little convoluted, but those who dig in will be intrigued by its depth and strategy.
