    This is an excellent pick-up for hardcore Mudd fans, but if you’re new to the series, don’t start with this game—go with its predecessor. Even for Mudd diehards, I suspect your mileage may vary.

    Ontamarama is certainly no Elite Beat Agents, but its style of gameplay is definitely unique. Perhaps it should have been called Multitasking Training in Japan in order to gain better sales.

    It may lack some of the bigger budget production of its competitors, but at its core is a fun and challenging puzzle-based adventure with a unique take on the genre.

    There is a great satisfaction in slamming a terrifying metal bowling ball into loads of zombies and even though there isn’t much else added in terms of mini-games, it’s a fun little game that I can see myself picking up again and again to add some quick slaughter to my day.

    If you really like Pokémon (like me) or were a fan of Pokémon Rumble on WiiWare, this sequel is worth checking out. It's shallow and basic, but charming nonetheless.

    Despite the obviously low-budget development, there are some great ideas and a lot of classic gameplay here, and I would love to see a sequel with much better production values.

    It is sad that online leaderboards were not included as it would have rounded out the experience nicely. Bugs aside, the creativity of the title does shine through.

    The truly sad part is that Lock's Quest is just a few design tweaks away from being a fantastic game. All the ingredients are here, but the overzealous chefs at 5th Cell screwed up the recipe.

    An excellent example of a new form of gameplay unique to the DS. It’s pure fun and puts a smile on the face of anybody playing it. [Import]

    All things considered, the game is cute and fun, with lots to do and see even if it feels like a slightly miniaturized, watered-down Harvest Moon experience. The story is interesting and the new setting of Konohana makes for a very unique feel to the familiar activities. While the 3D can be a little quirky at times, it has some of the prettiest art yet seen.

    The game never overwhelms its players, and while it may be a little easy and short, I Spy Universe is a great piece of software for all demographics of gamers, but especially for young children.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's amazingly accessible for young players, features a proactive character for girls, and is a great way to introduce children to the adventure genre. And although long-time gamers will find the game to almost run on automatic, it also features a fast-paced crime story with surprise twists, and some smooth art.

    A standby on Nintendo handhelds since Game Boy Color, River King has taken to DS touch control like a fish to water. [Feb 2008, p.90]

    It won't win any awards for ingenuity, but it certainly won't cheat you out of your money either.

    Galactic Taz Ball presents an interesting concept for a game that doesn't quite hold up for the whole experience.

    Those hoping for an overhaul will have to wait for the inevitable Brain Age 3.

    What Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate lacks in its plot, it more than makes up for with its gameplay. It may not be on par with its console brethren, but it’s still an enjoyable experience, whether or not you’ve played previous games in the series.

    Still, Johnny Impossible is fun stealth game that is worth checking out if you're looking for a short side-scrolling experience on the eShop.

    The WiiWare game is a different experience, and a rewarding one at that, provided you understand what it is you're getting into beforehand. You'll find R to be a pretty fun game if you do.

    In the end Shuttle Rush is a fun game, with some replay value due to online leaderboards. It breaks no boundaries in the platforming department, but manages to be entertaining enough that it is worth a look.

    The relative simplicity of Snowboarding makes for a much more engaging game than the other Disney Sports titles.

    If you are prepared to deal with many annoyances but seek an original and mostly enjoyable play experience, you'll be well served by Scribblenauts.

    LEGO Harry Potter's DS debut has a good foundation, decent gameplay, and tons of content.

    Avery fun game. However, nobody should be playing $40 for it. It’s fun, but nowhere near worth it. Wait for a price drop on this little gem, because it’ll be worth it at half the price.

    This game is ultimately an interesting experiment that can be a lot of fun in short bursts, so in that respect, it actually works on the DS. I would recommend it for casual fans of the series and younger players who may be less demanding.

    Though Career Mode is tedious and makes unlocking new elements a chore, the customization options and freedom you have when building coasters are worth the fuss. Coaster Creator 3D is a fun tool for any coaster fan or theme park enthusiast.

    Yu-Gi-Oh! Reshef of Destruction has one special feature that really sets the game apart: insane difficulty. Everything else is secondary. Only the extremely patient, skilled, or masochistic Yu-Gi-Oh players will love this game.

    If you like your word searching puzzles nice and clean, Word Search by POWGI is quite a solid choice.

    It's a light but undeniably cute virtual pet game, and it's also a little bit of an educational opportunity. Oh, and there are pandas.

    Rabbids Land provides players with a pretty solid party game experience. Its well-designed art and sound style and cohesive board game format make team outings fun. However, players looking to go it alone may find themselves yearning for higher levels of difficulty and more variety in the mini-game selection.
