Summary: I got this game for my son's birthday and he and his sister love playing it. They take turns coloring through most of the levels and enjoy themselves. I just want to point out to those thinking of purchasing this game that in the game, there is a map and you go around to different stations coloring stuff. You're supposed to complete one picture challenge before moving on to the next.
Summary: I was excited to get this game for my daughter, who is four and unable to read on her own. But when we received the game, I was disappointed to see that it was a little too complicated for her. It's really just a series of mini games, and some of them I couldn't even figure out what you're supposed to do! The directions are unclear. Some of the mini games are a no-brainer however, for example there is a game where you simply color a picture or where you can draw freely.
Summary: I actually got this game for myself because I loved coloring when I was young & figured it would be neat on the DS. The side adventures are for very young audiences, which was completely expected. I am aware that 28 year olds are not the target market. The coloring aspect of this game was exactly what I was hoping for. The colors are bright, there are lots of pictures, and it makes good use of the touch screen. For these aspects, I would give this game five stars.
Summary: We got this for our 6 year old to play on his DS Light. He likes it, but the arrows on the screen, coupled with the many sentences on the top screen take a long time to just get to the actual playing. He's just beginning to read, but he's not really interested in what they have to say, he wants to get to the adventure part. It is fun. Our 2 1/2 year old loves the connect the dots part and clicking on the shimmering objects. It's an okay game.
Excerpt: Since its inception the Nintendo DS has seen a wide variety of innovative uses. From performing surgery to directly interacting with animals its clear to see that the touch screen-equipped handheld has huge potential when offering new and exciting ways to play.
Summary: Whilst my Son (Age 3) found this game fun at first it is v repetitive and with no increasing difficulty level he soon lost interest. My eldest son (6) completed it in a matter of hours and as there appears to be no reset or save options for different players they played the same game, my youngest replaying games on the map as opposed to unlocking his own game.
