    Here is something that I kinda wanted for a while, Gameloft is porting five of its mobile games to the DS on one cartridge.

    Games included:
    Midnight Pool
    Midnight Bowling
    Midnight Hold ‘Em Poker
    Block Breaker Deluxe
    Platinum Solitaire

    3D version of Midnight Pool sadly, can't say I enjoyed it as much as the 2D one which I still play a lot when I'm I'm my girlfriends parents. Also Bowling & Hold'em Poker will be the 3D versions too, Bowling was pretty good. Never played the poker one as its not my thing but it got good reviews. Block Breaker Deluxe is very good, not as good as Arkanoid DS but the next best thing, hopefully another pack will include its excellent sequel that I'm currently playing.

    Previous mobile to DS ports include: Brothers In Arms DS (though that was handled by another team), Brain Challenge (which is one of the few that is any good on the DS), Asphalt GT 1+2 (I still play GT2, didn't like the first on DS), Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory (awful, even worse than the N-gage version), Miami Nights: Singles in the City (awful) and Real Soccer 2007 (the best none FIFA DS footy game, though it was pretty meh).

    Chances are that it could just be a quick port, and well some of the games may be better designed for a phone than the DS but I'm hopeful as this could be a good pack. No news of Wi-Fi, if it was included than I'll be more excited but we all know how cheap Ubisoft are with DS titles. I hope Digital Chocolate could do something similar as they piss on Gameloft.

    Its said to be released in Europe this June.

    I found the other ports decent, particularly Brothers In Arms. So these should turn out pretty well.

    Well.. nice of them to put all the games on one pack..

    Most shovelware developers make a different cartridge for each game [​IMG]

    I actually expected all of these to be ported eventually on single cartridges, surprised me to see five on one, at most I thought two. I know they are single WiiWare games too.
