How wrong could I have been?
Many of the games are well known, but cannot be named by brand-names!
Yahtzee = 5 Star Generals and Pick up 6
Tetris = Crystal Balls (but this one is a bit more fun, and easier!)
Power Cell = Freecell or Spider Solitaire!
Wordz is a hangman type phrase game.
Nearly all of these games are great fun, and use up more than a few minutes of bored-time! Most can be 1 or 2 player, and you also can link up wirelessly over the internet. If you get super high scores, you can publish them on the web too!
I thoroughly enjoyed playing this, and its one of those games that everyone wants " Just one more go!!" Its unlikely to get put away for quite a while! Definitly something for everyone, whether you have 2 minutes at the bus stop, or an hour to kill at the doctor's!
My only disappointment was that the Trivia game is VERY Americanised! I had no absolutely no idea about some of the questions!
I would recommend this for any age from 5 to 100. Everyone will find something they like! Buy it!
Daddy and daughter love Hot Hoops where you can shot as many baskets as possible in a set time.
I love the word games and skill games
we both like the Cards games.
We also have the DS 42 all times classics, we feel this set is much more suitable for children to manage and the graphics far more exciting with vibrant clear colours.
I agree with a few gripes from others, we would have liked to been able to play via the wireless without having to buy another card and word games a little american.
This DS collection of 23 puzzle, card, trivia, and word games are already tried and tested as decent casual experiences for players who don't normally play videogames, and they certainly translate well on the Nintendo DS. Not every game's a winner, and not every game is easy to understand right out of the gate. The good: Crystal Balls is a cool Puyo Pop variation that uses colors and numbers. And Five Star Generals and Pick Up Six takes Yahtzee and changes things up so as not to infringe on copyrights. But then you've got confusing duds like Artifact, an odd Othello like game with rules that are bogglingly weird and hard to understand without a few rounds of trial and error.
TouchMaster supports the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, but it's for posting high scores and seeing how well you rank against other players who've also uploaded their scores. Midway will also host tournaments which players can participate in, but the interface is absolutely the pits - you can never see in the game when a tournament is taking place, other than going into each game, clicking on "Tournament" and logging in.Read more ›
1. Some of the games are duplicated (same game, different graphics)
2. The trivia game is ok if you know America, this is not for the UK market.
3. The game has locked up several times now, no other DS game has done this so I suspect a small bug in the software.
4. The grpahics are not as sharp as the 42-in-1 game pack, in some cases making it harder to read the characters.
5. The Gem Slide is not what I thought it would be which is a shame as I really enjoy that game, instead you have little movement and new slides drop randomly on the board, I find it very frustrating as it could have been an good addition.
Despite this and providing it doesn't lock up too many times (so far about 1 in 30 usage) then I will continue to enjoy the games on this card.
Hope this helps.
Only slight draw back though was the Trivia and Wordz games. I have always thought that it was about time there was a decent trivia/word type game available for the DS. The only problem with these is the heavy American bias in the questions (unless you are well into US sports and everday TV programs then you could struggle). A more UK biased version for the UK market would have been better (and also a perfect score from me).
Despite this, the game will provide hours of fun as you battle with friends and family to get top scores on all the games.
