Summary: I bought two of these for my 8 and 10 year old in a bargain bin, prior to a road trip. I was afraid they might get bored just collecting, but now 4 months later, this is still the game they grab when we are driving anywhere. My daughter especially enjoys playing with the treasure she collects. Just like another post said, the kids now are more willing to go with me on errands, in order to play this game.
Summary: Rarely write reviews - but I have to say as a mom - I LOVE this game! I have no idea how it works,..how to play it, or what it does,..but I do know it keeps my kids busy for hours at a time! And that makes me happy! Never before have my kids wanted to travel in the car,..but now they ask to go on trips just so they can find more treasures. My boys are 5 and 9 years old and this was such a big hit I had to purchase a 2nd copy of the game to reduce the fighting over it.
Summary: This game is simply the best. It uses Wi-Fi to find amazing treasures, which turn into treasures to customize your Treasureworld. You'll find yourself taking alternative routes home from work and school just to here the "PING." Wherever you are you will always find new treasures. Even on vacation, or at the hotel or airport. Treasureworld.com was kind of a let down but it is still fun. Customizing your character or Avatar is one of the best parts too.
Summary: I bring my ds everywhere with me so I get slot of the hot spots that I need for new things. I lover this game complex but simple at the same time. Have to use your computer with it to play properly. Fun, fun, fun game.
Summary: This game is a must-have for EVERYONE. You'll find yourself driving around neighborhoods that you've never even seen before just looking for that "ping". This has been a great activity for all of the family to share. Just buy it and get addicted to the "ping". If you are looking for a fun game to share with the entire household, this is the game for you!
A remarkabley innovative and engaging title! Just plain fun!

Summary: A game this innovative is a rarity. More of a toy along the lines of Nintendogs, Treasure World has a uniquely unassuming but addictive quality that grabs you. While obviously targeted for younger players who will no doubt be all over it, the game has a whimsical and casual appeal that will appeal to adults, as well.
Summary: I found out about this game a few days ago and thought the concept was something new and fresh so i gave it a shot! I bought me and my little bro a copy we basically drove around town all day finding every wifi spot we could to unlock new treasures HIGHLY ADDICTIVE! [...
Summary: Treasure World has encouraged me to explore my neighborhood more than I'd ever expect. Who knew that a DS game would get me to take alternate routes to work, to walk a different path during breaks, and to explore an area of my city that I've never been in. Treasure World rewards me for things like this, awarding me treasures for each unique Wi-fi spot I come across during my travels.
Summary: Wow, I bought this based on an early preview and was pleasantly surprised. Treasure World actually turns the outside world into a game, rewarding you for exploring new areas and locations in order to gain treasure for use within the game itself. I'll set the game to search mode, put it in my pocket, then go out for the day, gaining treasure along the way.
