Summary: constant turning of the stylus on the touch screen got old quick and I am an adult who LOVES my DS because of the games played with the stylus (educational, puzzle, reflex, timed games, etc.), but this one began to feel like I could develop carpal tunnel with the next rotation of my wrist!!!!! A better touch game is the Wario Ware Touched!! I love it and it has a "puzzle, beat the clock, stylus" feel to all the games and it has a little old school formula to it..

Summary: I am an adult gamer. The game sounded like fun with variety of things to do! For the description it says: Use the Touch Screen turn wheel to play 24 unique mini games. I found out it was mostly using the stylus in a circular motion to move the wheel. That's it. For almost all the games you just turn the wheel. I'm thinking, "is that all I get to do, draw circles?" Eventually I got tired of turning the wheel for different games. I didn't care for that.
The only things circling around this game are metaphorical vultures.

Excerpt: Nintendo's aim with the dual-screen, touch-sensitive DS was to encourage game developers to think in new ways about how the gamer can interact with games in the hope that this would lead to interesting new titles. The developers of Turn It Around did just that - they thought of exactly one new way of interacting with a game and ran with it. Turn It Around is a minigame collection where all of the games are based around a single control method - that of turning.
