    So what four games are included? I see a tetris clone, a maze game, and something else.

    From the screenshots it looks like a tetris clone, a space invaders clone, a pacman clone and a frogger clone.

    Seems like pretty crappy shovelware, although the 4 game clones are pretty decent retro games.

    99% of ds titles are shovelware as of now.

    i agree other than pokemon and other rpg games most games are a pile of useless crap and a waste of money, time and/or memory on a flashcart.

    The Space Invader clone is very boring.....too easy. The Pac-Man clone is weird, you have little crystals to pick up as well as the normal pacman dots and powerups. It can be hard to tell when the ghosts (which are robots in this) power-pilled...the color doesn't change much. I prefer REAL Pac-Man.


    I stopped playing at this point. I didn't check out the Tetris clone or whatever the other game was supposed to be. I have better versions of these through other commercial/emu/homebrew games. I don't need this.

    Seems like just a cheap cash-in (I.E. shovelware).

    Pokemon, RPGs and of course the soon to be released Scribblenauts! That seems to have a lot of potential.

    Well I think it's a waste of original retail carts too! I mean, they could have been used to store much better games, but instead they store games like this on retailcarts. It's a waste of material and not good for the environment in the long run. Think about how many hundreds of thousands of gamecarts that has been used to store CRAP like this!!! I mean, the majority of the games released today are CRAP. So most of the retailcarts produced probably goes to the big majority of bad shovelware out there. Just because of some greedy developers who want fast money. But can we also blame piracy for the low quality of the games? hmm, I don't know?! But it has been discussed before.

    I thought it was just me, but the amount of good games for DS has been frightfully low.
    And then thinking of all the poor souls who bought a DSi..... what a shame... According to the craptitles that come out for the DS it seems the end is NEAR!!!

    Wow they took 4 proven classic games and ruined them all. Tetris is probably the best, but I mean Tetris?!? LOL Anyway it has a mellow soundtrack. Pac Man clone comes next, it's more like Pac Man remix since it's in that pseudo 3d mode. It's playable but like others have said there is little reason to play it since there are so many actual Pac Man games for the DS, Space Invaders is okay, but it's basically Space Invaders Deluxe when we have Space Invaders Extreme and the sequal, Plllleeeaaase!!!! Then we come to Frogger, this is the ugliest frogger ever and you are a robot not a frog or cricket or whatever so that is lame, it's also nearly unplayable, yes they managed to make an unplayable frogger, that is pretty sad.

    The look of these games is very drab like a game from the early 90's computer/console era when colors were at a premium (think of a cheap Amiga/Atari ST style game) actually these games (aside from the frogger clone) probably would be right at home on the Atari ST 17 years ago and they would of still been kind of bleh...

    How does stuff like this get released?

    Still have GI Joe Rise of the Cobra and CORE to keep me busy on the DS for the time being.




    Someone said there so many horrible games for the DS. this is true, but that is because the DS is so popular. It seems for every 20 games there are a few mediocre and 1 good game (for me at least). I would say the DS has around 150 really AAA titles which is a lot for any platform, too bad there are 2000+ crap games to go along with it.
