Dalmatians 2 (also known as Dalmatians 3 for the PlayStation 2, and Dalmatians 4 for the Nintendo DS and Wii) is a video game, originally released for the PlayStation in 2000, and published by the now-defunct company Phoenix Games. While there is a variety of mini-games targeted for young children, the game has the peculiarity of having more of a cinematic feel, rather than playable portions.

Plot[edit | edit source]

The three small Dalmatians lived with an old lady in a little town. One day they heard about, that a neighbour bought hearts made of gingerbread at the market. "Gingerbread!” Kruemel beamed with joy. "Our old lady loves gingerbread!” "Me too", said Tuepfelchen. "We go to the market and get a heart of gingerbread there”, suggested Kruemel, "that would be a nice birthday present for our old lady."

But the marketer has had no understanding for three small Dalmatians, which took some pieces of his gingerbread. He called the police and let the dogs bring into an animal shelter. Only Tuepfelchen could escape and she decided to free her friends.

Reception[edit | edit source]

The animated feature included, like most of the Dingo Pictures ones, released by Midas Interactive and Phoenix Games, has been widely panned for its cheap-looking animation, awkward-sounding English dub, irritating characters, and misplaced music. It's also considered, along with the box art, mainly a rip-off of Disneys's One Hundred and One Dalmatians.
