    I recall playing a homebrew DOTA and not enjoying it, or maybe I didn't even play it and just saw a video, I can't remember. The sprites were like from ragnarok or something.
    EDIT: yup, after googling there is one. called dota ds but its very very limited I wouldn't bother.

    Tried DotaDS, looks like it's been abandoned since last year. Freezes after a couple minutes on multiple tries on both AK2 and R4.
    It has too many flaws to list out, no pros worth mentioning.

    Thank god for Tower Defense DS.

    The homebrew DOTA didn't make it past simple peon or building creation if i remember right. The hero doesn't attack at all and I think the author was made to halt his work on the project by Blizzard.
    Tower Defense is really fun tho!

    Well the one I tested allowed hero to attack, but froze within the first 2 minutes or so.

    I don't think Blizzard would have asked for halt of project because DotaDS doesn't really resemble Blizzard's games except a few sprites and images (I mean the creeps are even from ragnarok). If W3 rips were a problem it could have been easily fixed.
    Dota on W3 is fan-made so it's perfectly fine to create Dota for DS and not have Blizzard say anything about it.

    Opps..I believe you are right! perhaps I was alittle too sleepy last night...

    I think I was confusing this with the starcraftDS homebrew, which I do believe was halted by blizzard and didn't get past the building and unit creation....

    Starcraft DS was going to be a port of Starcraft to DS thats a bit differnt.
    Dota is a custom game for Warcraft

    By looking at how Tower Defense plays, Starcraft DS would have been just meh.
    I'd expect very frequent flip of top and bottom screen which could semi-destroy gameplay because SC is way more fast paced than TD.

    There's no way the DS could emulate Starcraft's graphics well.
    It will just end up looking as bad as that Command and Conquer ripoff for the DS.
