    I just tried it. It looked promising until I found out that you have to play with the D-pad & stylus. It's sort of like a really crappy side scrolling Geometry Wars. With fish.

    Works on SCDS1, in case anyone cares.

    D-pad and stylus? That control scheme worked well for Nanostray 2.
    It should be ok.

    Yes, a side scrolling shoot 'em up with Geometry Wars style aiming and firing.

    And a shark submarine. Shark submarines are always awesome.

    I'll try this out, might be nice diversion for short breaks. (Metal Slug 7 is too short.)

    It might be good if you play for more than a minute (the screenshots look nice). I just got annoyed because I generally hate stylus games, and I was hoping for a halfway decent Darius clone.

    Those screenshots kinda remind me a iittle of Jets n Guns... DS needs more scrolling shooters.

    Lots of bright neon-like colors there, almost mistook it for a gameloft developed title.
    Sharks? I'm so there.

    How can you possibly hate stylus games and be a DS enthusiast at the same time

    Id choose DPad and buttons any day of the week over stylus and I love my DS. Cant see why you need to like touch screens to like a DS.

    Gambia, The
    seconded.

    there are tons of great games for the DS that don't need the touchscreen like castlevania, contra, mario, metal slug, dragon quest, all the roguelikes, etc. etc.
    i can think of only two games that have good touch screen controls: zelda and professor layton.
