If there's one thing that could be said for Cruella De Vil, it's that she's persistent. For someone who's been attempting to come up with enough Dalmatian puppies to make a coat for over thirty years, she shows a tremendous amount of resiliency, even if there might seem to be a better way to go about it than trying to snatch the same one hundred and one of them repeatedly, failing every time. Now, the wicked old wild-haired millionairess has a new nasty plan up her sleeve, but she's got more puppies to deal with. Exactly one more, to be exact, but hopefully, the newest addition to the 102 Dalmatians will be enough to escape Cruella once again.
In 102 Dalmatians: Puppies to the Rescue, players take on the role of either Domino or her spotless brother Oddball in an attempt to rescue Dalmatians from all over England. Cruella De Vil's new toy empire has been a dismal failure in the stores, but now that she's reprogrammed them to snatch puppies, they've proven to be an elite force, and they stand in the duo's way of saving their captured brothers and sisters.
102 Dalmatians is a 3D platform game in a similar vein to the Spyro series. It is definitely a title that is aimed to the younger player, with a less complicated theme and control scheme than other comparable platformers. Players will encounter 20 levels ranging from Big Ben, a toy shop, downtown London, and Cruella's De Vil manor. Players can select either Oddball or Domino, switching between them at any time (both dogs play exactly the same). In addition to scouring these locations for lost puppies (which one must find in order to progress), there are 100 bones scattered about on each level, and finding all of these objects will open up mini-games and stickers in a virtual sticker book. ~ Jon Thompson, All Game Guide
