Madagascar Wiki

Madagascar 2 is a 2008 thriller-adventure action comedy video game based on the film and a sequel to the original film's game, was made for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PlayStation 2, Microsoft Windows, and Nintendo DS, and released on November 4, 2008 in North America. The video game's gameplay is similar to the first movie's video game with the same characters and moves, although the environment is in Africa. The Nintendo Channel released a playable demo of this game on the week of November 7, which shows one of the side-scrolling, Lemmings-esque levels and the penguins of the series are the game's main protagonists.


The story begins with King Julien coming to the group (Alex, Marty, Melman, Gloria), in need of their help with taking pictures for a brochure of the island. From there, the group embarks on many missions and games, including racing, diving, shooing, ziplining, rescuing, and soccer. After this, the group decides to repair the plane in an attempt to return to New York. After the proper preparations, with the help of the penguins, the group take-off en route o New York. However (because of Mort) the plane loses power and crashlands in Africa.

After the crash, Alex and Melman embark across the savannah in search of their location. After a while, they meet up with Marty and Gloria who advise them to follow them to a watering hole at the center of the Savanah. The four disperse and meet the locals. Marty races with a herd of identical-looking zebra, Melman and King Julien become doctors for the local sick Giraffes, Gloria meets a group of female hippos and falls in love with a muscular male hippo, Moto Moto, and Alex meets the local lion pride and gets reunited with his long lost father.

Meanwhile, the penguins (Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, and Private) sneak into a local tourist center and steal the vehicles for their parts to fix the plane. Once with the necessary parts, the penguins recruit some local chimps and monkeys to help them. Meanwhile, Mort embarks on his own adventure as he enters the depths of the African Congo.

Back at the watering hole, Alex tries to fit in with the pride by going through the pride's Rite of Passage. He completes all the challenges but fails on the last task when he yells to the watering hole "I LIKE SOUP?!?". Because of this, Zuba and Mukunga banish him from the pride and gove him the hat of shame. Melman learns of Gloria's feelings for Moto Moto and is advised by Julien to confess his feelings for her. Melman decides to try and get dirt on Moto Moto by having Julien take pictures of him cheating on Gloria. However, when Melman shows the pictures to Gloria, she only turns them down and scolds him for his actions. Gloria later learns of Melman's intentions and meets him at the volcano to apologize to him. Moto Moto sees them and challenges Melman to a dance-off in an effort to impress Gloria. Once Melman beats him, Moto Moto will back off and Gloria will confess her feelings for Melman and vice versa.

Soon after fixing the plane and reuniting with his friends, Alex learns that the water in the watering hole had dried up. The group deducts that someone must have dammed it upriver (off the reserve) and decide to fly up to the source. There they find that Nana and the locals have dammed up the watering hole in an effort to shoo off the animals to have it for themselves. The team arrive in the plane and smash the huts, defuse bombs (with the help of Marty and Julien), and completely destroy the dam sending Nana flying off its waterfall. In celebration of their victory, the group decide to celebrate and are seen dancing throughout the credits.
