Summary: New Zealand Story for DS is pretty much just a port of the original NES game. It is not a brilliant game considering all the other DS titles available, though at this cheap price it is worth the purchase.
Summary: Not an overly complicated game by any stretch of the imagination but it will bring up those old feelings of nostalgia if you played the original in the Arcade or on the NES. With the extremely low price you can't really go wrong by taking a risk on this game. It might not be for everyone, but those looking for a simplistic (although a little difficult at times) game for kids or just as a quick play through game, this is a good choice.
Summary: Tiki the kiwi and his friends were just enjoying a normal afternoon when suddenly their gathering is interupted by a large leopard seal. He steals Tiki's friends, and now it is up to you to rescue them! If you have played the original Taito arcade game you know what to expect. The same colourful graphics, catchy theme music, and adorable characters are all still present. You go through various maze like levels trying to reach one of Tiki's little buddies at the end.
Summary: This was a cute little DS game. I will be honest, I really only bought it because it was New Zealand related. You play a (yellow with wings?) kiwi who has to rescue his friends by traveling to a few different NZ areas and shooting the bad guys or avoiding them by floating around. I beat this game in a few hours and I am not all that great at video games. It was fun to pass the time and I did enjoy the NZ tie-ins.
Pretty Good game, it take's me back to my school days.

Summary: Bought this game for myself when I was looking around amazon.com for a game for my son. I remember playing this game when I was back at Secondary School in the early 90's (them were the days). It is a pretty good cross-over of the game. I only played it for about an hour so far. But I find due to the dual screen of the ds the bottom screen gets the user to play some sub-games, like spot the difference between the top screen and bottom screen.
Summary: This game is great for my 8 year old daughter and I can see it lasting several years as you can play the levels in different ways depending upon age and 'game playing sophistication'. For instance the main character can either just trundle along or can hop into cars, on floating things etc. You fire arrows/water/etc at the bad guys who turn into fruit that then gives you points equipment etc, so good for parents who don't like violence but the kids do.

Summary: This is a fairly faithful version of the original NES version, and if you're a big fan of that then you'll no doubt enjoy this. I loved this on the ZX Spectrum, which is maybe why I'm not a big fan of this release. As with the NES original, the screen is very cluttered. The brick wall background with the many moving sprites make the screen look messy. I'm glad that the familiar NZ Story theme tune has ben kept though - that was a nice touch.
