Plot

Wii and PS3 Version

The game begins as Phineas, Ferb, Candace, Perry and Doctor Doofenshmirtz are fleeing in between dimensions in an attempt to escape the 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz and his Norm-Bots. Everyone winds up in the same dimension (but in different places) where the entire Tri-State Area is overtaken by gelatin and miniature versions of the Gelatin monster are swarming the streets. After uniting the group again, Phineas and Ferb head for the sewers to try and find the power source needed to make another dimension jump (which 2nd Dimension Baljeet says is needed to help them move on to get back home). They come in contact with a much larger and dangerous version of the Gelatin monster before Perry and a new agent from the different dimension, named Terry the Turtle (or Agent T), assists Perry in combating and defeating the Gelatin monster. Once introduced to the others by Monogram beaming in (telling that Terry is Baljeet's pet in this dimension, coming from the same animal adoption agency where Phineas adopted Perry in their dimension), Terry asks for Phineas and the others in helping to free the dimension from the gelatin. Once they do, they travel onto the next dimension with Terry.

In the next dimension, the entire area is completely made out of balloons and is floating high in the air. There, Doctor Doofenshmirtz meets another dimension version of Ballooney, who can strangely talk to everyone else. Upon arrival, however, 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz has tracked them down and sends a wave of Normbots after them (which are destroyed). Afterwards, the group manages to hunt down and find the next energy source needed to dimension jump again, this time landing in a black and white, 1920's cartoon style version of their home. In addition to meeting a 1920's farm style Phineas and Isabella, they help out Cap'n Doofenshmirtz, owner of a large steamboat (which is named after Steamboat Willie, Mickey Mouse's debut cartoon). Once they gain the energy source there, they jump to another dimension.

In this new dimension, the world is under the control of an evil wave of garden gnomes and only by taking their power source from them can Phineas and the others set the dimension free from the gnome's control. But once that is accomplished, 2nd Dimension Candace calls in with a cry for help as she was caught by 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz and they must come to their dimension to finish off the evil villain.

Though they have a close encounter with 2nd Dimension Goozim, they arrive in the 2nd Dimension underground hideout, but while speaking of their plan to attack the Normbot factory while 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz is gone, Doofenshmirtz is angered that the others don't consider him as evil (or any worse of a threat) than his dimensional counterpart. With the fact that their voices are the same, he orders the robots to attack Phineas and the others before fleeing off to 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz' fortress. Phineas and the others manage to destroy the Normbot factory, with an idea to install a self-destruct button to the control panel, and escape, only to be attacked by a giant version of Norm the Robot.

But before the giant Norm can attack, 2nd Dimension Isabella arrives inside the giant Queen Elizabeth robot and lets them inside before they all get in a gigantic boss battle against the large Norm. Once defeated, they storm Doofenshmirtz' fortress, finding their Doctor Doofenshmirtz in the main office. He then tries to do his usual speech with Perry, unfortunately not counting in Phineas and the others nearby. Afterwards, Doofenshmirtz pulls the main character's controlled player into a trap where they have to defeat Doofenshmirtz inside a strange pod shaped weapon, which he questions the making of.

Once he is defeated, 2nd Dimension Phineas tells him to stop everything that 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz has caused. But while Doofenshmirtz agrees to and does so in a tired and exhausted state, he accidentally activates and forces Phineas and his 2nd Dimension friends into a final boss battle with a large robotic version of 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz on the top of his headquarters (all the while, Doofenshmirtz is not really doing anything and points out that the robot has an "anger" gauge that is filling up each time it is damaged and tries to hints them into where to attack). Once defeated, the Phineases and Ferbs and the animal agents fly off, leaving a deactivated robot (and Doofenshmirtz) behind.

The game ends with 2nd Dimension Phineas (still in his resistance outfit even though everyone else had returned to their own dimension after Doofenshmirtz' defeat. He may wear the same clothes to not confuse him with Phineas from the 1st Dimension) filming a video in his dimension a few months later that which now is very remarkably similar to that of the 1st Dimension Danville and everyone appears the same as their other dimension version. He then speaks to an off screen Ferb as they plan to construct the coolest rollercoaster ever (a parody off the first episode of the series and the various episodes which has a rollercoaster).

DS Version

It starts out with Monogram telling Carl that Agent P and the others have been trapped in the second dimension. Major Monogram then leads the tutorial in which you can switch between Phineas, Ferb or Perry at any time you want. You wonder around the "Doom Pit" as seen in the movie and battle the goozim. 

Phineas, Ferb, Perry, Candace, and Doofenshmirtz then switch dimensions and the Second dimension-inator remote loses power. You then wonder through the desert dimension through six - seven levels. until you arrive at an arena and battle the Platyborg. The five heroes then escape into the music dimension, where you once again have to restore power because there is no source to power the other dimension-inator. Note- In the Desert Dimension you get to ride Rover and one of the chariots.

In the music Dimension (Which reminds Doofenshmirtz of his record Collection, you wonder through 3 levels until you must battle a giant music note in Meap's ship. You then go through 2-3 more levels and you arrive at a boss battle with Norm on a Music Seat. Then all five of you escape into the Haunted Dimension. Note. In the Music Dimension you get to ride Rover, The platy-posterior and Meap's ship.

In the Haunted Dimension, you wonder through 3 levels, battle an electric ghost in the haunted house, go through 2-3 more levels, and fight a giant skeleton You then travel into a toy Dimension, which Doofenshmirtz states is "Monster Free" . Note in the Haunted Dimension, you ride Rover, the Pplaty-posterior, Perry's Hovercraft, and the mine-cart from the Haunted house.

In the Music Dimension the other Dimension-inator and this is shocking. Get ready- powers down for the 4'th time. Candace wants to stay behind, but Phineas convinces her to come. You then, travel through 3 levels, then battle a Lego themed monster. You then battle Platyborg again at the end and move onto the 1'st Demension after Dr. Doofenshmirtz takes a few toys from the dimension. Your back to the Tri-State area. Note. In the Toy Dimension, You get to ride Rover, The platy-posterior, Perry's Hovercraft, and Perry's helicopter. Doofenshmirtz is excited, but then realizes that he is back in the same dimension as his goody two-shoes brother and his x-wife. He wants to go back. 2'nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz beat them home, and launched his robot army to attack Downtown Danville. 

After one level and a boss battle with 2'nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz and a few Norm-bots, You finally arrive at the final battle.Now it's time to battle 2'nd Dimension's Evil Robot. Finally the robot is defeated and Doofenshmirtz literally rolls out of the pile of rubble. He starts to cry and Dr. Doofenshmirtz gives him the toy train that he took from the Toy Dimension. 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz decides to turn good and heads back to his own dimension to play with Choo Choo. Note. Rover is the only vehicle you get to ride.

Trivia

  • Despite appearing as his 2nd Dimension self with no dialogue, Buford makes no appearance except for appearing as a figure. The same is said for Stacy and Jeremy, only appearing in clips from the movie and/or as collectible figurines (Wii/PS3).
  • The songs "Perry the Platypus", "Robot Riot" and "Brand New Reality" appear as background music. In the Wii/PS3 versions, "Gotta Get Gone" appears too.
  • A giant version of Candace's gelatin model of Jeremy's head can be seen in the Danville Sewer level of the game's first dimension.
  • In the Wii/PS3 game, 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz is never met face to face (appearing in clips from the movie), but strangely left just before Phineas and the others came to destroy the Normbot factory and faced off against his gigantic robot for the final boss. In this case, Doctor Doofenshmirtz takes over in his place (though seemingly against his will at the end).
    • Also, in the Wii/PS3 version; alongside his master, Perry the Platyborg is never seen in the storyline (which some would've believed him to be a boss battle). Though with a special code found in the DS version of the game, can use Perry the Platyborg as a skin for Perry to play as in game.
    • However, in the DS game, Perry the Platyborg is fought as a boss in Worlds 1 and 4, and 2nd Dimension Doofenshmirtz is the boss of World 5 as well as the one operating the final boss.
  • Part of the first level of the Old Timey Dimension is set on a steamboat, as a reference to the first Mickey Mouse cartoon released with sound, Steamboat Wille.
  • Phineas, Ferb, Perry, Resistance Phineas, Resistance Ferb, and Terry are all playable in every game system. (However, the last three only appear as unlockable costumes in the Nintendo DS version).
  • Dennis the Bunny, called by Candace as "Mr. Cutie Patootie", is mentioned in this game.
  • Even if the levels are cleared by another character,(e.g: Baljeet at Baloon Skies or Isabella at Behind the Curtain),the cutscenes still show the same characters and even the dialogues are the same in the level. Also, the characters like Isabella-2 at Road to Evil Doof or Baljeet-2 at Poke the Goozim still show them as a transmission for some reason.

Reception

Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension received average reviews, Game Guys gave it B- and Gameplay Today gave it 7/10 find themselves enjoying Phineas and Ferb, they will probably also find that the game is all too easy.[1][2][3] PC Advisor states that there's a lot of charm and some unique set-pieces, but it's too short, easy, and lacks replay value.[4] Wired.com stated it’s not without its virtues. The voices of the characters are well done, and the animation is suitably reminiscent of the show and movie. And young novice gamers will likely find it a gentle introduction to the world of video games.[5] Chipchicklets praised it good graphics and sound effects; easy character recognition (for those familiar with the series); very player friendly – no visually disturbing fighting (if a robot is destroyed it is blown up, if a character is hurt, he (or she) either disappears and reappears or waves a white flag for a few seconds until recharged); the game requires some thinking to find the right path and solution to get through each dimension but it is not overwhelming; good for younger children as it is a very gentle game (even with the occasional fighting, it is only with robots).[6] Hollywoodchicago gave a 3.5/5 points that isn’t half-bad. It looks good and has a few camera issues — graphic/visual weakness and dodgy viewpoints are common problems in kid’s games — but, more importantly, it attempts to recreate the anything-goes fun of the show on which it’s based.[7] 411mania gave 6/10 that as someone who’s never seen the show before I found the game to be charming although lacking any clever puns or references that would appeal to adults.[8] Game Tactics gave it 6/10 for the Wii and 7/10 for the PS3 states is clearly a game aimed at their target market, kids who watch the cartoon. In that case I’d say it mostly succeed, as they will appreciate the game’s low difficulty and tie in with the series and it’s really not that bad of a tie-in game. That said I’d probably wouldn’t pick it up if you aren’t already a Phineas and Ferb fan or have kids who are.[9][10] The Province gave it a B+ that is a wonderful game for kids to play. Smart, clever characters with some humorous lines, the game is written very well and features great level design.[11] Mirror gave 4/5 that the main campaign mode is neither particularly long nor challenging to complete, it's filled with so much fun stuff to see, hear and do that Phineas and Ferb fans will be enthralled regardless.[12] Godisageek gave 6/10 that is a decent enough game, the leveling mechanic of the weapons keeps people playing and the humor keeps people coming back for more, unfortunately there simply isn’t enough of it.[13] Thunderbolt gave it a 5/10 that Across the 2nd Dimension can easily be summed up by the mini games – including ski ball and a crane game – that bookend every stage: pleasant, but monotonous.[14] NZGamers gave a 6/10 that the game is really "For the kids. But you knew that."[15] Community voices gave 8.5/10 that it’s a comedic, educational and best of all, age-appropriate game for kids and an excellent game for children and is even better if they are fans of the show, and critics suggested buying the PS3 version since it's easier to control the character than the Wii version,[16][17] and has 4 bonus episodes for fans to watch that are: "Comet Kermillian", "I Scream, You Scream", "Mom's Birthday" and, "Dude, We're Getting the Band Back Together".[18][19][20]

The Nintendo DS version, GameSpot gave 4/10 that the characters here are short on personality, but at least the visuals pick up some of the slack.[21] Pocketgamer stated was surprisingly good. It's simple and generic, and it becomes repetitive after a while, but there's still plenty to enjoy here - especially for kids who love the cartoon.[22]
