Success HK have posted several new Nintendo DS games on their site:
Ice Age 2: The Meltdown
An adventure game based on the sequel to Fox's CG animated film. The Ice Age is ending and our subzero heroes return in this action adventure video game set in a melting paradise of water parks, geysers and tar pits. Manny the Mammoth, Sid the Sloth and Diego the Sabre-Toothed Tiger are back and realize that the melting glaciers will soon flood their valley. With the help of everyone's favorite sabre-toothed squirrel from the first movie, Scrat, help your big friends cross the perilous landscape to safety. Scrat will dig, swim, sniff, spin and roll his in his never-ending quest to collect acorns. In the process, he serves as the unwitting hero in the quest to save the land from a giant flood.
An action RPG set in the world of the Pokemon Ranger movie. You play as a Pokemon Ranger. Different from a Pokemon Trainer, a Ranger travels the lands, using Pokemon in a fight to defend nature from baddies. Its release precedes that of Diamond and Pearl, and all three games link up together for some top secret bonuses.
Puzzle Series Vol. 3: Sudoku Jap ver
A puzzle game for the Nintendo DS, based on the Sudoku number game. A board is split into nine rows and columns. The resulting squares are further split into 3x3 groups. The game starts off with some of the squares filled in with numbers between 1 and 9. You have to fill in the rest of the numbers so that each row, column and 3x3 grouping uses the digits 1 to 9 only once.
Cooking Mama Jap ver.
This cute cooking game uses the touchscreen of the Nintendo DS to let you cook meals. Playing as a female chef, you have to prepare the food (slicing the vegetables, slicing the meat), then cook it on the stove. With touchscreen play, you can do things such as shake the skillet for an omelet and dip tempura in the oil.
Ys Strategy Jap ver.
Ys Strategy is a true real time strategy title that makes use of the DS's dual screens and stylus to provide a smooth interface for a genre that game consoles and portable systems have traditionally had trouble with. One screen displays a map and all your resources, while the other shows the game field and various icons for all your possible actions. Using the L button, you can switch the views between the top and bottom. The game is controlled with the touch pen, as you directly select characters and objects and then point to the desired action.
Gameplay is reminiscent of a traditional real time strategy title. When you first start off, your goal is to build up resources, ordering your units to gather food, money, stones and other bits of raw material. This is followed by unit creation, as you build up troops using unit factories and weapon factories. All this requires time and money, of course. Finally, you send your troops out in battle, using standard attacks and even powerful magic spells.
