  • Chase Mini Game-Avoid obstacles to escape the Belly Juju.
  • Block Buster-Pop clouds to get to the Juju Realm.






Tak: Mojo Mistake recieved generally good reviews, but these reviews were better than it's companion, Tak and the Guardians of Gross. IGN says:

"Traditionally a 3D platformer, Tak: Mojo Mistake makes the transition to two dimensions remarkably well. The controls are tight and don't rely on the touch-screen too much while still providing a decent amount of gameplay variety and the new perspective allows for some amusing visual designs as well. Environment repetition becomes a problem later on, but the brief length of the typical quest is perfectly suited for the short play sessions Nintendo's handheld is known for. In the end, Tak: Mojo Mistake may not be the next New Super Mario Bros. but it does provide a few hours of old-school 2D platforming entertainment for gamers of all ages."


  • This is the first game in the series to include both Television Characters and Game Characters in the same universe.
    • It will also be the only time that some characters from the Video Games would appear.
    • It also has the village spelled as Pupanunu, and the Television Series has it spelled Pupununu
  • Mojo Mistake was releases on the same day as Tak and the Guardians of Gross, which was released only on the PlayStation 2 and Wii.
    • Due to this, they both could be called Tak 4.
  • Mojo Mistake is the only game to be released on one console, and is the only time a handheld version had a completely different storyline.
  • Tak also uses his Thwark, and can upgrade to the Dream Shaker and his staff from the T.V series.
  • In the very beginning, Jibolba tells Tak to not go quickly run off, or he will accidently turn the village into Sheep. This is a reference to the first game, where Tlaloc turned the village into sheep.
