Dikdik is a remake of Dong Dong, an unlockable minigame from WarioWare, Inc: Mega Microgames for the Game Boy Advance! Compete against a friend in this action-packed stick thrusting simulator! Coincidentally, dikdiks are a totally real animal. Crazy, right?

Controls:

  • Dikdik uses a single keyboard shared between two friends. Get close!
  • Player 1 uses the "A" key (or anywhere on the left side of the screen on touch devices) to thrust her stick!
  • Player 2 uses the "L" key (or anywhere on the right side of the screen on touch devices) to thrust her stick!

How to Play:

  • Hold both keys (or screen areas) to start!
  • Tap your key (or side of the screen) to thrust your stick forward. First player to push a block all the way out of the wall and knock out the opponent's dikdik wins!
  • Some people seem to be able to hold out forever, so a time limit might be a good idea. Click the hourglass on the title screen if you want longer or shorter matches!

Random Facts About Dikdiks:

  • Dikdiks have mild psychic powers that allow them to influence other animals, though most animals (other than dikdiks) are too smart to be swayed.
  • Dikdiks are extremely anti-social, however they do seem to attract social butterflies when they put their nose where it doesn't belong.
  • The collective noun for a group of dikdiks is a "duet".
  • Once a dikdik gets a song stuck in its head, it will spread to other dikdiks like wildfire through that psychic influence network thing that I was telling you about earlier.
  • It's said that dikdiks rarely graze at the same time. Seeing two dikdiks graze in unison is a sign of good luck (for the predator that is waiting for them both to be distracted).
  • The dikdik's favorite song is "Africa" by Toto and they will thrash ferociously if it gets stuck in their head.
