In The Cheetah Girls: Passport to Stardom, a new Nintendo DS video game, the Disney-created girl band of Aqua, Chanel and Dorinda (aka The Cheetah Girls) jet-sets around the world to compete in international dance and singing competitions. The game's debut coincides with the release of The Cheetah Girls One World movie on the Disney channel, and picks up where that movie stops — in India.
This music/rhythm game follows the exploits of The Cheetah Girls as they travel from India to Spain to New York City in search of fame. Players use the touch-sensitive screen of the DS to help the performers sing, dance, and design costumes. The game features five songs from the new movie as well as five other songs from the two previous Cheetah Girls movies.
Start by playing the Story Mode so that you can unlock all the features of the game. The Story Mode is playable on three levels of difficulty, a designation that applies to the minigames within the story.
There are three kinds of minigames: Performance, Cheetah Fashions and Gita Says. Once unlocked, these games are playable separate from the Story Mode.
The Performance games are music/rhythm games, similar to what was first introduced in "Elite Beat Agents," where you tap colored circles in time to the music. For example, while in India, The Cheetah Girls try out to be the opening act for a local Indian band. The girls are shown performing on the lower touch-sensitive screen and as they sing and dance, colored circles with numbers in the center appear on top of the singers. Each circle has a large ring around it that decreases in size until it matches the outline of the circle. If you tap the circle at the moment the ring matches the outline of the circle, you attain the maximum points possible and the singers keep performing. Miss too many of these, and the tryout stops. However, you can repeat the tryout until you succeed.
