Description official description

Based on the TV show and special of the same name, this game has the player complete a total of 20 different levels. Story Mode and Play Any Game are the two choices the player has when in the main menu.

Story Mode has the player select any level he/she wants to play from the 20, and go from there to the end. There are four levels each for France, Tanzania, Russia, and China; there are two for Dora's home once back from China. The first level of each involves going from country to country in varying modes of transportation. The second level of all five regions usually involves navigating through mazes and collecting three items. Only the second level in Russia has to do with skiing. The third in each of the four countries outside the Americas may vary between each other. The final one in each of the four have to do with finding each respective country's version of Swiper. The difficulty rises throughout the game in certain aspects. Also, the player may pause the game, but may not exit the level until it is finished.

The level select menu is set up so the player first looks at two pages, each displaying about half of Earth. Then, once a location is selected, the player can choose from any section of the game in that region. Though Dora's home is a choice in both globe pages, the first takes the player to the beginning of the story, while the second takes the player towards the end. There are no levels in the first Americas choice, but the plot starts there. Play Any Game lets the player choose from any of the 20 levels to play. Once finished with it, the player goes back to the region's game select menu.

The plot goes as follows: Today is Friendship Day, a worldwide celebration when friendship bracelets are worn by everyone. When worn, the bracelets will make the sky brighter by glowing. However, Swiper swiped friendship bracelets with his Swiper-copter, leaving the people of France, Tanzania, Russia, and China (mainly Paris, Mt. Kilimanjaro, the Winter Palace, and the Great Wall of China respectively) without them. Once realizing that the items swiped were friendship bracelets, Swiper felt repentance. After the Swiper-copter failed to work again, Dora and Swiper must return them back to those four countries a different way. Will they save Friendship Day?
