    Warcraft? Not quite.
    Eco Creatures? No, but it does have critters.

    This seems like a ds version of the ps2 Simple 2000: vol. 99 - the genshijin, released as Darwin in Europe and as Adventures of Darwin in America. Should be the same concept, I guess.

    So, is it playable without knowing japanese? Seems like it could be quite good.

    Those screens kinda remind me of Pikmin, I hope it gets a DS release.

    You mean Western release, or English release, surely ... as this is already as DS release.

    I made a typo. My mistake.

    So wait,this doesn't work on R4?

    Anyone confirm this?
    (Id find out myself,but i dont have my DS handy atm)

    EDIT:I tryed it out,it doesn't work(on R4)

    it gives me a black top screen,and a black bottom screen with some white japanese text in the middle(i tryed pressing button,touching the words...nothing)

    Ah well,it will hopefully be fixed in the next version (1.18)

    That sounds bad. I have to test and see what the text says. I'm kinda hoping it's not copy protection, but it sounds likely. It's not like anyone's gonna care about this game, but if this has the same sort of checksum protection as crystal chronicles, it's a bad omen. It will be the death of the R4 when every new game will need cheats, a patch, or worse, a firmware upgrade. I guess it's not the end of the world to have to splerge on another cart, but I am happy with my R4. We shall see, I guess.

    edit: doesn't say anything about protection. Just says the the data can't be read, and suggests some stuff you can try, which I didn't bother reading.

    Its exactly that.

    The genre should be Strategy rather than action.

    Doesn't work on cyclo either, same thing happens, black top and bottom with japanese text. But if it's hard to play without knowing japanese I guess I'll pass it until it gets a english release or until I learn some more japanese.
