The gameplay in Bratz Ponyz 2
gets slightly repetitive very quickly. You start out on a single island with a number of shops on it. There are four main shops: the Beauty Workshop, Arts & Crafts Workshop, Precious Stones Workshop, and the Music and Dance Workshop. There's also a Photo Lab where you can take pictures of your Ponyz to hang on the walls of your house and a Play Hall where you can choose from different games.
You need to visit each of the four workshops and perform whatever task they want you to do. If you forget which ones you've been too, you can just tap the agenda book in the bottom right corner and it will have a check mark next to each of the ones that you have completed. After you've done each of those tasks, you'll see an exclamation mark appear somewhere on the island. Go talk to the pony at that exclamation mark and they'll tell you where to go to get your reward. Then you'll start over again at each station. After you complete the agenda twice, you'll get a boat to the next island. You'll have to go there to find the diamond needed to complete the precious stones from the next agenda. From here on out, you'll find yourself wandering to other islands to get the items you need, sometimes by boat, sometimes by air balloon. You can see how this gets old quickly.
For each craft that you complete at a workshop, you can earn up to 5 hearts. If you want to redo a craft to get more hearts than you did the first time, you had better do so before you complete the agenda. After you've finished all 4 shops and then talked to the pony it sends you too, you'll get a new agenda so you can't go back and redo any of the crafts on the previous one.
If you do get bored with single player, you can find a friend with the game and play multiplayer. It does require 1 cartridge for each player. In the multiplayer mode, you can choose to have a drawing contest, race your ponyz, or exchange photos. Multiplayer games can have up to 4 people in each game.
