    Are you serious? It looks kinda like shovelware. Although I suppose it could be a PopCap-esque game...simple but loads of fun.

    The thing on the cover looks similar to a bingo card.

    I'm a bingo hater so I think I'm gonna pass this one.

    When my mom had AOL Canada (AOL SUCKS!) when i was visiting her and using this lame excuse of an internet service... I found one gem within the rough... and that was Slingo! It's a fun bingo meets slots type of game. I wouldn't pay a penny to play this... but that's why I have a flash cart [​IMG].

    Had a quick go, interesting little game, imagine I'd quite enjoy playing it for money but gambling games without the potential for winning and the risk of losing are a bit pointless. Also, incredibly stupid design flaw - the little help bubble that pops up saying "See if you can match this number to one on this row" pops up covering the row you're supposed to be looking for the number in. Which utter fucktard decided that was a good idea?

    It's a combination of slots and bingo, it's not a flash game. It looks quite nice on PC, don't know for the DS though...
    I didn't like it on PC, but my girlfriends mother loves it.

    I like the game nothing to sit down and play ala Crono Trigger, but nice when waiting for dinner to finish cooking or something
