Excerpt: The zombie apocalypse has arrived so lock your doors and barricade your windows, or plant some sunflowers and pea shooters in your back yard and defend your honor. Plants versus zombies finally hit the Nintendo DS and yours truly had the honor of spending hours playing through this cult phenomenon. No title since the horrid Farmville has reached more people and become such a fixation for gamers everywhere.
Excerpt: Plants vs. Zombies is indisputably one of the most popular casual games out there. Having been released on PC in 2009, it has made its way to virtually every platform available: iPhone, iPad, PS3, Xbox 360, and Mac. Now it is time for the Nintendo DS, the king of casual gaming, to get its own version. Are you ready to kill some zombies?
Excerpt: Plants vs. Zombies has been an absolute winner for Popcap Games on the Apple platforms, PC and Xbox Live, so it was just a matter of time before it would head to Nintendo�s insanely popular handheld. Granted, it�s not as exciting as a 3D version of the game for the upcoming 3DS, but the addictive nature of the gameplay is enough to hook any casual gamer into playing for hours upon hours. The presentation is very simple and doesn�t really require any narrative.
Summary: Parents need to know that Bejeweled Twist is an addictive matching game that will be incredibly appealing to kids who love puzzle games, but may come off as too repetitive for kids who tend to require more action or plot in their video games. There's an outer space planet-jumping motif layered over the DS version of Bejeweled Twist, but it's purely decorative. For puzzle lovers, though, this should not be a negative.
Conclusion: Bejeweled Twist is a pretty good puzzle game on the Nintendo DS. Out of all the Bejeweled games this one stands out as the best. It does stink a little that you have to earn the other modes. Even with that tiny problem PopCap Games has done a good effort with this game and nobody should pass it up. Rating Breakdown Gameplay: 9 out of 10 + Dead-on stylus controls will have you clicking away with Twist for hours. - Some of the game modes are pointless.
