  • Summary: [DSiWare] Looksley the rabbit needs your assistance to finish the story he's writing. Guide him through a world based on famous fairy tales and folk stories from around the globe, helping him to gather inspiration by finding hidden items along the way. In this unique take on hidden-picture games, you'll move the Nintendo DSi system to change your view of various 3-D dioramas. Peer deeply into the scene as you shift the system, watching as layers within the diorama move to reveal previously unseen letters and objects. As you collect these letters and objects, you'll meet new characters and spell words that will open additional stages with more sets of hidden items to find. Particular stages contain secret pictures, testing your observation skills even further. Scour each scene's incredible depth and detail as you lend Looksley a hand in completing his masterpiece. Players of all ages will love this visual puzzle challenge and be amazed to see that even the same spot can look different from another angle. Expand

    Just don't get too frustrated if you have to fiddle with the camera and the lighting in your living room a few times to get it to function right -- that part's annoying, but it doesn't ruin the "wow" factor.
  2. Under the right light, Looksley's is a beautiful, inventive and fun game that will keep you occupied for a good long while and charmed the whole time. It's a shame, though, that such a potentially wonderful experience is marred so badly by an oft haywire camera and a lack of replay value once each stage is complete.
  3. A clever use of head tracking tech is sabotaged by a game that seems specifically designed to subvert it.

    It's just too dang difficult to move the camera to get objects to line up and form a shape. This is Nintendo's weakest DSiWare title. Sorry, Miyamoto and crew. Expand
