Ornithorhynchus Anatinus GO GO GO! DS is a port of the Sega Saturn game by NAXAT SOFT called Motteke Tamago with Ganbare! Kamonohashi. The game can be seen as a cross between the classic bomberman games and Flicky.

In this version of the game, the levels have been ported relatively faithfully to the Nintendo DS. Some levels are notably different to the original ones due to the smaller screen of the Nintendo DS.

All modes from the original game will be reproduced and also a few extras will be in the final version. One of the features to be integrated will be a level editor to allow you to build your own levels and upload them to share with your friends.


  • 3 game Modes.
  • In-game tutorial.
  • 8 worlds (24 stages).
  • Versus mode play against 3 CPU.
  • Can select the length of the game.


Enter the binary folder.

Patch the .nds file with the DLDI driver for your media.

Copy the patched *.nds file to anywhere on your media card.

Copy the TakeTheEggs folder to your media card (no more than 3 directories deep).

Note: Some devices now feature auto DLDI patching so will not need to be patched.

User guide

Your goal is to go after the eggs, collect them, let them hatch and bring back your kids to your house (and only yours if you want to get points).
