    About


    Guru Guru Nagetto is a 2D comical action platform game. The main character of the game is "Straw", a young witch. Straw is accompanied by "Mono", a magical character formed like a ball that can understand human beings. Your target of the game is to pass through eight stages by tossing Mono here and there. Using the stylus, you draw circles on the touchscreen to build up energy. The higher the energy scale, the more powerful Mono gets.

    Three year old game...wouldn't get too hyped about it, as it was made in the early, shovelware age of the DS.

    I'm sure this is going to be shit-ware, but not everything since TWEWY is bad. Drone Tactics is very good, not to mention that Speed Racer was a pleasant surprise.

    hmm what? Besides Ping Pals and Sprung the rest of the first 50 releases for the DS were at least decent.

    Bah, a lot of them mediocre with a ton of touch screen gimmicky-ness. :/

    The rest were shit, excluding Mario kart 64 and Warioware touched (and probably another good one i forgot)...but i digress.

    Famitsu was hyping this up way back. I thought that this was way back before shovelware developers could afford to dev for the DS. Why don't you think it's so good?

    I tried the japanese version but it was tough to understand. I'll try this.

    yay, finally! i played it before in japanese and it was fun, even though i didnt understand how to do everything...

    this is definately NOT shovelware. it may not be the deepest gaming experience ever, but its fun. and now that i have it in a language that i can read, it will be even better.

    plus, it has those cute "mono" characters! [​IMG]

    This is a really cool idea somewhat ruined by an incredibly slow-paced gaming experience. I prefer playing games more than watching them. It's a shame, too, because I like the idea behind this game a lot.

    Over here a week is forever, if there isn't a major release in the last two days "the DS is dying" and _everything_ is shovelware. Get used to it.

    You're not the only person..I tried to force myself to like it..But no..I really don't enjoy the game..I can't get used to controls, and the theme of the game really bothers me..I don't like graphics either..(and I'm a big fan of RPG games, it's my favorite genre)..

    Guru Guru looks stupid enough to make me want to play it..I'll try the game..
