    At the grand opening of Mario's third theme park, the first 100 guests receive a new Mini Pauline toy. Donkey Kong™ arrives as the 101st guest and finds himself out of luck. He grabs Pauline and heads into the park with Mario™ and his Mini Marios in hot pursuit. The fourth game in the series adds new challenges and new opportunities for users to share what they have created.

    • Edit and play: The latest installment to the Mario vs. Donkey Kong™ franchise to arrive on the Nintendo DS family of systems is an exciting action puzzle game in which players use the stylus to place objects like girders, springs, conveyer belts, pipes and ladders to guide the Mini Marios to the end door of each level.
    • Using an intuitive tool kit, players can create new level maps and share them with members of the public near or far using the local wireless connection of the Nintendo DS or Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection and wireless broadband Internet access. People can rate the levels and see which ones people like the best.
    • Regular themed challenges will invite user-created entries that players can vote on. The top rated levels will be announced at the end of the challenges.
    • Mini Pauline toys join the other familiar toys in the series (Mini Mario, Mini Toad™, Mini Princess Peach™ and Mini Donkey Kong).
    • A help button, new map mode and an in-game reference guide, also referred to as the Super Guide, make it easy for anyone to pick up and play.

    Uhhh...this looks to be exactly like the March of the Minis in terms of gameplay. It's not at all like the one on GBA. [​IMG]

    I couldn't really get into the other games, but it looks nice.

    There was "Minis March Again" (or something like that) on DSiWare.

    Huh. Not the first franchise that comes to my mind when I think of Nintendo games that need sequels.

    the original gameboy version will always be better, the gba one was alright, the ds version was completely boring so i won't be touching this one.

    Its the same game but with minor is a needless sequel. Its Nintendo saying "will this do?" to keep DS owners thinking that there are still games to play on the DS.

    I did really enjoy the first DS game, not played the DSiWare one but its one of those games that I feel should just stand alone by itself without a sequel. I can't say I yearn to play more of this seeing its pretty much copying what Amiga puzzlers did since Lemmings came out.

    Go back to actual Donkey Kong, I adore the GB game as it took the original and just bested it in every way. The GBA game was pretty good though it didn't have that "classic" feel to it and I wasn't into the look of it. I'd love to have a new old school DK game on each handheld, only one mind for each.

    I don't like the the DS Mario vs. Donkey Kong...
    The touch controls pretty much ruined the game for me.
    I enjoyed the GBA version A LOT, but when I tried the DS version, I was disappointed...

    Meh, I've tried both the ds and dsiware games, and they wrent that fun. A sequel might be worth a try, but its definately nowhere near the top of my list.

    i feel the same. i played the gba version a lot and the ds version just sucked. i don't think it was necessarily just the touch controls, it was the face that the platforming was gone which was most of the fun.
