    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Info:

    Are you ready to take on the role of Master Chief once again in his tiniest adventure yet on the Nintendo DS? Nope; not the same Halo DS that IGN's editor swore by a few months back, but homebrew developer cobradragon1020 invites you to try out a new homebrew game starring the indomitable Spartan from the Halo series in Halo ds.

    The game is a work in progress and features an opening script for the game as well as an initial room to try out the game's 3D feel. This is actually the second update rolled out by the developer, with more to come in the near future.

    Hopefully, the future build of this game will feature more hardcore FPS elements, as well as a additional solid tie-ins to the well-loved Halo universe. In any case, we'll be here to catch any new updates regarding this interesting homebrew game so make sure to check back in on us soon.

    Way too much lazy to download a tech demo, can anyone post a few screenshots.

    If only.

    Their bloggers get paid 2 dollars per article. So basically what they do is churn out "well-written" articles on any useless thing they can get their hands on, even though they generally have no knowledge or experience with said subject.

    Its the worst kind of blog.

    I thought the release would at the very least make the home page...

    Oh, come on. Every time someone does something related to Halo, it gets tons of articles. You don't really need to do anything but say you're making a game based in the Halo universe and everyone loves you. I hate Halo. It's overrated. And this homebrew wouldn't have any attention at all if it weren't halo.

    I feel the same way about Halo, never could stand it. But all homebrew deserves some spotlight, now matter how early of a stage it's in, and no matter what it's about.

    I was expecting something like halo zero.
