Plot[edit | edit source]
Wii and PS3 Version[edit | edit source]
The game begins as Phineas, Ferb, Candace, Perry and Doctor Doofenshmirtz are fleeing in between dimensions in an attempt to escape the 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz and his Norm-Bots. Everyone winds up in the same dimension (but in different places) where the entire Tri-State Area is overtaken by gelatin and miniature versions of the Gelatin Monster are swarming the streets. After fighting off the monsters and finding Doofenshmirtz,the two head in the sewers find Candace has been captured by them,but the boys defeat them and free her,telling her to meet up with them at the other end of the level.They also find doctor D.,but he is stuck in the Gelatin.He says he will get himself out,telling the boys to continue their hourney through.The two eventually make to the main part of the sewers,and meet up with Candace and Doof, uniting the group again, Phineas and Ferb say they have to try and find the power source needed to make another dimension jump (which 2nd Dimension Baljeet says is needed to help them move on to get back home). They are about to keep moving,when the Gelatin Monster comes in through a drain.Phineas and Ferb do not have the weapons to fight,which leaves them to run.When the monster is about to eat them,Perry and a new agent from the different dimension, named Terry the Turtle (or Agent T), assists Perry in fighting and defeating the Gelatin Monster,using orange paint. Once introduced to the others by Monogram beaming in (telling that Terry is Baljeet's pet in this dimension, coming from the same animal adoption agency where Phineas adopted Perry in their dimension), Terry asks for Phineas and the others in helping to free the dimension from the gelatin. Once they do, they travel to the end of the sewers and drain the ciy of Gelatin.Then they jump to the next dimension with their new fighter, Terry.
In the next dimension, the entire area is completely made out of balloons and is floating high in the air. There, Doctor Doofenshmirtz meets another dimension version of Ballooney, who warns them of dangerous creatures ahead,which proves to be hedgehogs who pop balloons the player stands on and attack them.They can also strangely burrow into the ballon-like habitat without popping it. Upon arrival, however, 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz has tracked them down and sends a wave of Normbots after them to capture the crew.But they are destroyed byt the agents and brothers. Afterwards, the group manages to take air with jetpacks and fight a giant robot ship called the Doofenshmirtz ship 2000.after crashing it,they hunt down and find the next energy source needed to dimension jump again, this time landing in a black and white, 1920's cartoon style version of their home. In addition helping out Cap'n Doofenshmirtz, owner of a large steamboat (which is named after Steamboat Willie, Mickey Mouse's debut cartoon)by loading and organizing the cargo,and he takes them across the ocean to another continent,which is where they meet and help farm style Isebella by delivering lunch to farm Phineas,who is helped by feeding cows for him. Once they gain the energy source there in the barn, they jump to another dimension.
In this new dimension, the world is under the control of an evil wave of garden gnomes,who have taken over the city and captured the dimensoin's Baljeet and Iseballa.And only by taking their power source from them can Phineas and the others set the dimension free from the gnome's control. But once that is accomplished, 2nd Dimension Candace calls in with a cry for help as she was captured by 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz and they must come to their dimension to finish off the evil villain.
Though 2nd Baljeet says that Doofenshmirtz sent a Goozim over and says to look for something odd.Then,Goozim from earlier jumps through a portal and attacks Phineas and the gang and fight him.They beat him by luring him over a cliff,possibly killing him.They arrive in the 2nd Dimension underground hideout, but while speaking of their plan to attack the Normbot factory while 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz is gone, Doofenshmirtz is angered that the others don't consider him as evil (or any worse of a threat) than his dimensional counterpart. With the fact that their voices are the same, he accidentally orders the robots to attack Phineas and the others before saying that "Doofenshmirtz is out! Peace!" and runs away,abandoning finding 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz' fortress. Phineas and the others manage to ride away in the carts anyway and destroy the Normbot factory, with an idea to install a self-destruct button to the control panel, and Phineas tells the others to run away, only to be attacked by a giant version of Norm the Robot.
They make it out and meet up with the others,but Norm comes and attempts to punch the crew and kill them. But before the giant Norm can attack, 2nd Dimension Isabella arrives inside the giant Queen Elizabeth robot and lets them inside before they all get in a gigantic boss battle against the large Norm. Once defeated and throwing him to a building,Ferb scolds him,saying "Queen Elizbeth will not be outdone by the likes of you.". They storm Doofenshmirtz' fortress, finding their Doctor Doofenshmirtz in the main office. He then tries to do his usual speech with Perry, unfortunately not counting in Phineas and the others nearby. Afterwards, Doofenshmirtz pulls a switch,which makes Doofenshmirtz hop inside a strange pod shaped weapon, which he questions the making of.Then he pulls the player onto a circle hole,causing the player to be stuck on the wall,with Doofenshmirtz's ball weapon in th unreachable middle,where they must lure Doof into coming down and jump on his pod to fight him.
Once he is defeated, 2nd Dimension Phineas tells him to stop everything that 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz has caused. But while Doofenshmirtz agrees to and does so in a tired and exhausted state, he accidentally activates a giant flying robot robot of his counterpart,which Phineas,Ferb,Perry,Terrry,and the second brothers work together to fight and defeat(all the while, Doofenshmirtz is not really doing anything and points out that the robot has an "anger" gauge that is controlling it). Once defeated, the robot will come crashing down onto the first platform, and Phineases and Ferbs and the animal agents fly off, leaving a destroyed robot (and Doofenshmirtz) behind.
The game ends with 2nd Dimension Phineas (still in his resistance outfit even though everyone else had returned to their own dimension after Doofenshmirtz' defeat. He may wear the same clothes to not confuse him with Phineas from the 1st Dimension) filming a video in his dimension a few months later after the big fight with the Doofs,and Danville is now very remarkably similar to that of the 1st Dimension Danville and everyone appears the same as their other dimension version. He then speaks to an off screen Ferb as they plan to construct the coolest rollercoaster ever, one of the ideas the first Phineas gave him in the film (and possibly offscreen in the game).
DS Version[edit | edit source]
It starts out with Monogram telling Carl that Agent P and the others have been trapped in the second dimension. Major Monogram then leads the tutorial in which you can switch between Phineas, Ferb or Perry at any time you want. You wonder around the "Doom Pit" as seen in the movie and battle the goozim.
Phineas, Ferb, Perry, Candace, and Doofenshmirtz then switch dimensions and the Second dimension-inator remote loses power. You then wonder through the desert dimension through six - seven levels. until you arrive at an arena and battle the Platyborg. The five heroes then escape into the music dimension, where you once again have to restore power because there is no source to power the other dimension-inator. Note- In the Desert Dimension you get to ride Rover and one of the chariots.
In the music Dimension (Which reminds Doofenshmirtz of his record Collection, you wonder through 3 levels until you must battle a giant music note in Meap's ship. You then go through 2-3 more levels and you arrive at a boss battle with Norm on a Music Seat. Then all five of you escape into the Haunted Dimension. Note. In the Music Dimension you get to ride Rover, The platy-posterior and Meap's ship.
In the Haunted Dimension, you wonder through 3 levels, battle an electric ghost in the haunted house, go through 3 more levels, and fight a giant skeleton You then travel into a toy Dimension, which Doofenshmirtz states is "Monster Free" . Note in the Haunted Dimension, you ride Rover, the Pplaty-posterior, Perry's Hovercraft, and the mine-cart from the Haunted house.
In the Music Dimension the other Dimension-inator and this is shocking. Get ready- powers down for the 4th time. Candace wants to stay behind, but Phineas convinces her to come. You then, travel through 3 levels, then battle a Lego themed monster. You then battle Platyborg again at the end and move onto the 1'st Demension after Dr. Doofenshmirtz takes a few toys from the dimension. Your back to the Tri-State area. Note. In the Toy Dimension, You get to ride Rover, The platy-posterior, Perry's Hovercraft, and Perry's helicopter. Doofenshmirtz is excited, but then realizes that he is back in the same dimension as his goody two-shoes brother and his x-wife. He wants to go back. 2'nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz beat them home, and launched his robot army to attack Downtown Danville.
After one level and a boss battle with 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz and a few Norm-bots, You finally arrive at the final battle.Now it's time to battle 2'nd Dimension's Evil Robot. Finally the robot is defeated and Doofenshmirtz literally rolls out of the pile of rubble. He starts to cry and Dr. Doofenshmirtz gives him the toy train that he took from the Toy Dimension. 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz decides to turn good and heads back to his own dimension to play with Choo Choo. Note. Rover is the only vehicle you get to ride.
Development[edit | edit source]
After the release of the first video game, it was revealed that a Phineas and Ferb Wii game was in development. http://www.wired.com/geekdad/2009/09/phineas-and-ferb-interview/ Later, Disney Germany confirmed a PS3, Wii, and DS game for the series to be in development. The game was officially announced on April 4, 2011 as an Across the 2nd Dimension video game adaptation. The game was featured at a video game press event in New York City in April, alongside other games such as Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game. A trailer for the game was shown at E3 2011. The title was also playable at the event.
In an article of Kotaku, it was noted that the console versions of the game borrow elements from the Ratchet and Clank games. This is due to High Impact Games, the game's developer, being a spinoff company of Ratchet and Clank series creators Insomniac Games. As well, the reason why the game wasn't coming to Xbox 360 was addressed, being that Disney wanted the game to capitalize on the motion control of the Wii Remote and PlayStation Move, which the Xbox 360 lacks.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Despite appearing as his 2nd Dimension self with no dialogue, Buford makes no appearance except for appearing as a figure. The same is said for Stacy and Jeremy, only appearing in clips from the movie and/or as collectible figurines (Wii/PS3).
- The songs "Perry the Platypus", "Robot Riot" and "Brand New Reality" appear as background music. In the Wii/PS3 versions, "Gotta Get Gone" appears too.
- A giant version of Candace's gelatin model of Jeremy's head can be seen in the Danville Sewer level of the game's first dimension.
- Allthough they are both called Phineas and Ferb: Across the second demension, They are two completely different games. The Ds version is simply a cheaper version of the Wii game, for every line of dioluge from the Ds game was taken from somewhere in the Wii/PS3 game.
- In the Wii/PS3 game, 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz is never met face to face (appearing in clips from the movie), but strangely left just before Phineas and the others came to destroy the Normbot factory and faced off against his gigantic robot for the final boss. In this case, Doctor Doofenshmirtz takes over in his place (though seemingly against his will at the end).
- Also, in the Wii/PS3 version; alongside his master, Perry the Platyborg is never seen in the storyline (which some would've believed him to be a boss battle). Though with a special code found in the DS version of the game, can use Perry the Platyborg as a skin for Perry to play as in game.
- However, in the DS game, Perry the Platyborg is fought as a boss in Worlds 1 and 4, and 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz is the boss of World 5 as well as the one operating the final boss.
- This is the first Phineas and Ferb game to be rated E10+, and is also the first DCOM video game as well.
- Part of the first level of the Old Timey Dimension is set on a steamboat, as a reference to the first Mickey Mouse cartoon released with sound, Steamboat Willie.
- Phineas, Ferb, Perry, Resistance Phineas, Resistance Ferb, and Terry are all playable in every game system. (However, the last three only appear as unlockable costumes in the Nintendo DS version).
- Dennis, called by Candace as "Mr. Cutie Patootie", is mentioned in this game.

Reception[edit | edit source]
Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension received average reviews, Game Guys gave it B- and Gameplay Today gave it 7/10 find themselves enjoying Phineas and Ferb, they will probably also find that the game is all too easy. PC Advisor states that there's a lot of charm and some unique set-pieces, but it's too short, easy, and lacks replay value. Wired.com stated it’s not without its virtues. The voices of the characters are well done, and the animation is suitably reminiscent of the show and movie. And young novice gamers will likely find it a gentle introduction to the world of video games. Chipchicklets praised it good graphics and sound effects; easy character recognition (for those familiar with the series); very player friendly – no visually disturbing fighting (if a robot is destroyed it is blown up, if a character is hurt, he (or she) either disappears and reappears or waves a white flag for a few seconds until recharged); the game requires some thinking to find the right path and solution to get through each dimension but it is not overwhelming; good for younger children as it is a very gentle game (even with the occasional fighting, it is only with robots). Hollywoodchicago gave a 3.5/5 points that isn’t half-bad. It looks good and has a few camera issues — graphic/visual weakness and dodgy viewpoints are common problems in kid’s games — but, more importantly, it attempts to recreate the anything-goes fun of the show on which it’s based. 411mania gave 6/10 that as someone who’s never seen the show before I found the game to be charming although lacking any clever puns or references that would appeal to adults. Game Tactics gave it 6/10 for the Wii and 7/10 for the PS3 states is clearly a game aimed at their target market, kids who watch the cartoon. In that case I’d say it mostly succeed, as they will appreciate the game’s low difficulty and tie in with the series and it’s really not that bad of a tie-in game. That said I’d probably wouldn’t pick it up if you aren’t already a Phineas and Ferb fan or have kids who are. The Province gave it a B+ that is a wonderful game for kids to play. Smart, clever characters with some humorous lines, the game is written very well and features great level design. Mirror gave 4/5 that the main campaign mode is neither particularly long nor challenging to complete, it's filled with so much fun stuff to see, hear and do that Phineas and Ferb fans will be enthralled regardless. Godisageek gave 6/10 that is a decent enough game, the leveling mechanic of the weapons keeps people playing and the humor keeps people coming back for more, unfortunately there simply isn’t enough of it. Thunderbolt gave it a 5/10 that Across the 2nd Dimension can easily be summed up by the mini games – including ski ball and a crane game – that bookend every stage: pleasant, but monotonous. NZGamers gave a 6/10 that the game is really "For the kids. But you knew that." Community voices gave 8.5/10 that it’s a comedic, educational and best of all, age-appropriate game for kids and an excellent game for children and is even better if they are fans of the show, and critics suggested buying the PS3 version since it's easier to control the character than the Wii version, and has 4 bonus episodes for fans to watch that are: "Comet Kermillian", "I Scream, You Scream", "Mom's Birthday" and, "Dude, We're Getting the Band Back Together".
DS version[edit | edit source]
The Nintendo DS version, GameSpot gave 4/10 that the characters here are short on personality, but at least the visuals pick up some of the slack. Pocketgamer stated was surprisingly good. It's simple and generic, and it becomes repetitive after a while, but there's still plenty to enjoy here - especially for kids who love the cartoon.
Continuity[edit | edit source]
- Candace mentioned being sick of gelatin. ("Day of the Living Gelatin")
- Lots of Bango-Rus can seen ("The Chronicles of Meap").
- A goozim appears as a boss. ("Got Game?")
- The Queen Elizabeth Robot can be seen battling a giant Norm. ("A Hard Day's Knight")
- The Video Games' storyline (all versions), possibly occur during the Brand New Reality song because, the Wii/PS3 version's opening has some images of this song, and also because all version have Phineas, Ferb, Perry, Doofenshmirtz and Candace traveling through different dimensions.
- In the DS version, Isabella mentions that she is going for her First-Aid Patch. ("The Great Indoors")
- Many of the descriptions in the store have references to multiple episodes such as the movie itself.
- Phineas (2nd Dimension) credit's line "although that's different story" similar to Ferb's line "but that's another story" in Unfair Science Fair, is other evidence that this may be alternative story similar to Unfair Science Fair/Unfair Science Fair Redux (Another Story) and Bubble Boys/Isabella and the Temple of Sap.
- Ducky Momo, Rover, and the platypus egg robot are seen. ("Nerds of a Feather", "Phineas and Ferb Hawaiian Vacation", "Tour de Ferb", "Run, Candace, Run", "Mommy Can You Hear Me?", "Canderemy", "Perry Lays an Egg")
- Heinz Doofenshmirtz says "Out, Peace!" again. "Nerds of a Feather" The pharse was also said in Unfair Science Fair Redux (Another Story)", "Attack of the 50 Foot Sister" ,"Invasion of the Ferb Snatchers", "The Beak", and "She's the Mayor".
- Balloony appears in a dimension made entirely of different types of balloons. ("The Chronicles of Meap")
- Ferb's globe from the race reappears in the Balloon Dimension ("Last Train to Bustville").
- The color scheme of the blasters in the Jetpack levels on the Wii/PS3 version is similar to that of The Beak suit. (The Beak)
- Many outfits that have been worn in previous episodes can be bought and worn.
- Candace mentions Mr. Cutie Patootie. ("No More Bunny Business")
- Even if the levels are cleared by another character,(e.g:Baljeet at Baloon Skies or Isabella at Behind the Curtain),the cutscenes still show the same characters and even the dialogues are the same in the level. Also,the characters like Isabella-2 at Road to Evil Doof or Baljeet-2 at Poke the Goozim still show them as a transmission for some reason.
Allusions[edit | edit source]
- New Super Mario Bros. and New Super Mario Bros. Wii: The DS game has an overworld map design similar to this game, and the three character tokens function similarly to Star Coins.
- Super Mario 64: In the Wii/PS3, some worlds have a slide which have players control the characters similar to Mario on a slide.
- Kingdom Hearts II: Both games have the heroes go into a 1928-styled version of their respective worlds. Stages based on Steamboat Willie also notably appeared in Mickey Mania: The Timeless Adventures of Mickey Mouse and Epic Mickey.
- Sonic the Hedgehog: The hover ball Dr. Doofenshmirtz uses in one of the boss levels is similar in appearance and attacks to Robotnik's version in the Sonic boss battles.
- Rayman : Like in Rayman games, you can double tap the jump button to glide temporarily in the air (Wii/PS3 version). Also, like Rayman 3, in certain sections you must control a missile/baseball to hit a target (Wii/PS3 version).
- Ratchet & Clank : Screws are currency in that game too (it being also by raw thrills) also a few weapons have simmilarities to ones in Ratchet and Clank for example: the Baseball Launcher homes in on enemies like the locater dose.
