    Its been a while since I brought a not very well known title to your attention and to be honest the last few I did weren't quite the "great" games I'd hope them to be.

    This title is a localisation of a Japanese game called "Acroknights" which has yet to have even been released in Japan. The game brings to my mind the greatness that is DK King of Swing and the "ok for a little play" Mr Slime. It looks more likely to be as much fun as DK. It is developed by Noise that gave us the Custom Robo series though only two of those games ever made to in English and that was just the "ok" DS game and the "ok" Gamecube game.

    From Siliconera:
    Here is a trailer.



    Atari are releasing this game in Europe on August 28th. Lets wait and see if it turns out to be a good fun game. I prefer the Japanese title though.

    Lol, looks a bit like Spiderman because you move around with some kind of rope or something similair. Maybe the gameplay is really fun, I hope so.

    I played yesterday, and it's a really good game, with a nice gameplay, using the touchscreen, you can use the DS as a book, or play in the normal way.

    Doesent really look like a older kids game but its something to look forward to because the design of it looks fun and the things you do look good to.

    I wasn't excited for it, and I really am enjoying it.

    It can get frustrating when you flick and your character doesn't jump to the next outcropping, or when you try to hook onto something to slingshot and you end up fumbling around. But it's definitely one of the most refreshing DS games I've played in a long while. Very surprised by it.

    Where rockets don't fall.
    The only annoying thing is when I move too fast the game thinks I'm doing a slingshot backwards and always where there are spike [​IMG] .
    I found that you can tap to move from spot to spot (but doesn't work on the blue ropes).
    This game is fun (already finished the Fantasy Zones).

    What bugs me is when I'm trying to get around really fast, I'll accidentally slingshot myself straight down.

    Yeah, it's kind of like Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword in that respect; you'll often get actions you didn't intend. Still, I think it's very refreshing, as far as DS games go. Seems really short, though. I just unlocked the sixth world, and unless there's hidden stuff (aside from what's already labeled as "bonus" levels), it's barely a snack pack.

    Just finished it this morning, and it had a really cool final boss. Once you complete all the levels, you can then play mirror mode for any of the levels you've collected all three gold medals in. Pretty cool. Very arcadey, but perfect for the DS. I will be really surprised if they don't bring this over to the States. This is one game that would, I think, translate incredibly well over here, especially to mainstream audiences.

    So far I have all 3 coins in 15 levels and am halfway through the Haunted Castle world.

    I love this game so much, I kiss it with tongues. It's a great game to pick up and play a level here and there on a trip or in between RPGs or bigger games.

    As for speed, I somehow went into some weird swing trance during 3-3 and was able to zone through the level in under 25 seconds. I was just constantly flicking to the upper left, almost like I was sweeping the DS and I just shot through it.
