I've played a lot of horse themed games on the DS, and this one is really different, and a refreshing change! Unlike others, this one doesn't follow a "storyline" but is full of mini games, all with a horsey theme.
Some challenges are event based (jumping, competitions, training and racing), while others are puzzle based (one involves moving a horse from a field and it's set out a lot like a slide puzzle) another is a little like chequers where you have to empty the board of counters by jumping them over each other, but it's tweaked to become harvesting carrots from a field for the ponies! Another still features the farm's cat, who you have to help jump across moving platforms, and there's even a memory game where you have to remember and repeat the sequence in which the horses are neighing to you.
There are 20 of these mini games in all, and there is a lot of variety! The music is just perfect for a puzzle game, relaxing and not distracting and the graphics are lovely! I've still not tried all of the puzzles so I've only mentioned some of what is on this game.
It's a great game as you can play it for just a few minutes at a time, or as long as you like. Highly recommended! Get this one if you like puzzle challenges or you want a horse game that's different from the others, but just as entertaining!
