When playing the game you control as David as you go through eight mysterious world across the Dreamworld and Nightmareland. Throughout the game items will be collected to help you during your quests or to unlock different missions and worlds. The game doesn't have an access to free roam and the only place to roam around is the hub place of the game which is the Dreamworld Castle. Along the way David gets to meet nicer versions of his enemies that help him on his quest like Alan the Akiloy, Jake the Jwump, and Fred the Fistnot. Each time passing a mission a grade of A, B, C, D, or F will appear, but if you get a D or F you have to restart the mission and the grade tradition does not happen during boss battles. When in a hard boss or hard to reach area your friends are there to help, you can go on top of Alan the Akiloy because he has the highest jump, when a large boulder is in your way Jake the Jwump can dig at intense speed to get you where your going and when near a hard to climb place or near a dangerous lake Fred the Fistnot can help you get over because Fred can fly. The game is up to four players and in multiplayer you can play as David, Alan, Jake, or Fred as you and friends can play the game together, and the game can be played on Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, when playing on Nintendo WFC it's the same just like multiplayer except playing the game with many people around the world. Three modes are in the game which are the story, multiplayer, or training mode. The game comes with a trailer and a demo of the first David Racing game David Racing.
