Based on the original Dragon Ball series, Dragon Ball Origins for Nintendo DS is the latest edition to the Dragon Ball franchise. Players will experience a thrilling adventure that is more fun and lighthearted compared to later Dragon Ball stories. Gamers can collect the 7 Dragon Balls while traveling around with their CPU controlled partner, Bulma, who is protected by the character Goku. In the shoes of Goku, the player must protect Bulma from incoming enemy attacks using special skills, such as fighting with his power pole, or unleashing a kamehameha. Combined with Bulma’s ability to invent machines and weapons, the intrepid pair make a formidable team able to defeat even the strongest enemies or trickiest of obstacles. If either is defeated it is game over!
The innovative controls mean the player uses only the touch pad to control Goku. Players must draw lines or shapes to direct the character and control the action by tapping on the screen, for example a double tap on Goku followed by tapping on the Ka-me-ha-me-ha letters unleashes his devastating signature move.
