Summary: I really liked this game at first. There are 6 mini games, racing and air hockey are my favorite. When i first started playing it was a lot of fun. After a while i had trouble with a few of the levels. There are some levels that are impossible and i haven't beaten them after about a billion tries. I am stuck on those levels and i only play the mini games now.
Summary: I've been a fan of monkey ball for a little bit now. True, I've never played it on nintendo before, only x-box, but I thought this was a good edition to the franchise. There are 100 levels, i guess half of which are truly new. I was never exactly an expert on the xbox version, but there were a good amount of really challenging levels here. My main complaint is the amount. Weren't there like 3 times the amount in previous versions? As for controls, the stylus is fine.
Summary: Super Monkey Ball Touch & Roll is an obsessively fun game where you control a little monkey in a ball, and you have to roll him all around obsacle courses to reach the goal-with a time limit! I loved Super Monkey Ball 1 and 2 for the Gamecube, and was addicted to Monkey Ball Jr. for the GameBoy Advance, so I found 'Super Monkey Ball Touch & Roll' to be a neat addition to my DS library. There are, however, some drawbacks.
Excerpt: Super Monkey Ball Touch & Roll is the best portable game in the series released so far. The graphics aren't the reason you are playing this game. If you've played the previous games on home consoles then don't expect better. As far as the graphics go seeing as how it's a portable system with only 64 bit graphics they are decent.
A good game, which proves to be very challenging for all ages!

Excerpt: I bought this game a long time back as I was looking to buy something challenging and fun. Having played the super monkey ball game before, I thought I'd get it for the DS to make full use of the touch screen in guiding your monkeys to the end of each course. The game is very challenging when you get to later levels! There are quite a few different worlds in which you guide your monkeys through the levels to the goal.
Your monkey is in a bubble you have to use to get through races and courses.

Excerpt: This game, has quite an appealing choice of graphics for children, it shows a few monkeys in bubbles. The game is not one big game, it's more lots of little games. To start you have two options the first one is party games: Racing: placing your stylus towards the top of the screen for speed and left and right to control along a mid air track. Bowling: you have to flick the stylus up the screen in a straight line to hit the pins, you can also add a spin to the ball aswel.
Excerpt: I have this game on the DS, and despite initial reservations (and the childish packaging) i actually really like it! The main game is quite challenging, trying to roll a little ball around a little course, with stages that get progressively difficult. There are all sorts of obsticles, along with floors that move and separate.
