The creepiest thing about Teenage Zombies isn't that you, in effect, play as three dead children, but that this is - shock, horror - actually based on an original idea and not a cartoon license. Though the dead kid thing is a close second.Set in a tongue-in-cheek comic-book universe - cutscenes are read from the DS held book-style - plenty has been made of the novel format. A neat tutorial is carried out on the instruction panels of the comic
Part game, part handy guide to surviving a Brain Thingies invasion, Teenage Zombies is a side-scrolling, puzzle-filled action platformer with a sense of humor. You swap between three zombies, each with their own special moves to get through the obstacle-filled levels and eat through an army of evil brains. Combat isn't very difficult (partly because the brains you kill can be consumed to regain health), but it's not really the focus of the
And here you thought that the only place for zombies was on the business end of a shotgun. Well, when a pack of brains from outer space takes over a town, all that changes and youll find yourself rooting for the undead in Teenage Zombies: Invasion of the Alien Brain Thingys. This break-away game from the folks who used to be Disney Interactive marks a shift from the sappy learning games of yore to the awesome gross-out games that kids actually want to
A little more than a decade and a half ago, the very first Game Boy landed on store shelves and put Nintendo in a place it had never been: everywhere. But it wasn't Mario or any of the company's other popular characters that put the handheld system in every child's hands and business traveler's carry-on. It was Tetris, often considered the world's most perfect video game. The immortal puzzler hasn't changed over the years, but Tetris DS is hoping you'll bite anyway. With some serious online
Chances are pretty good that you didn't play the original Thrillville last year... but a whole bunch of kids sure did. So many went for the ride, in fact, that the amusement park simulator is getting a sequel this October. Thrillville: Off the Rails embraces its youth appeal by pushing everything to be bigger, wilder, sillier, friendlier and, of course, barfier.
As theme park tycoon Mortimer's trusted niece or nephew, you still hold the dream job of building, designing and test riding every
Our hero in Time Ace isnt so much the swashbuckling, dashing, two-fisted pilot you might be expecting; nope, hes a doctor, an academic who a) has invented a time machine, and b) knows how to fly a number of aircraft, from F15s to UFOs. We bet he doesnt have any trouble with the ladies, considering the number of pick-up lines he could come up with.
And his name? Dr Clock, naturally. His filthy assistant, Dr Scythe (why hire a man with a name like that? Its begging for trouble) has stolen his
Everyone loves the renegade cop, at least fictional ones. Guys who make their own rules, don't listen to the old men in their ivory towers and get the job done no matter whose toes are stepped on. Videogames have their fair share of these characters, but Lewis Cannon, the hero of throwback beat-'em-up Tokyo Beat Down for DS, is the most Miranda-ignoring, suspect-abusing, and aptly named rogue cop we've ever played as.
Is it a trick game or a racing game? Turns out Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam on DS is a little of both. Like its elder Wii sibling, THDJ mixes up the traditional skateboarding gameplay with a high-speed race-and-chase element. You'll still bust gnarly grinds and sick tricks, but you'll have to do it while careening down sharply curving racecourses and trying to beat seven other skaters to the bottom.
The creative team wants to build on what went right with last year's Tony Hawk's American Sk8land,

You might remember the Top Gear name from back in the days of the Super Nintendo, but even if you don't, here's all you really need to know: arcade racing for up to four players, and power-ups are replaced by natural disasters like volcanoes and earthquakes and tornados and avalanches.
Yeah, you read that correctly. You might have seen racing like this before - it's pure arcade mayhem viewed from the top down, like RC Pro Am or a Micro Machines game or basically any other slot
Usually, when the world needs saving, it calls on something boring like a young farmhand who hasn’t realized his destiny. Yawn. Tornado goes in a unique direction and uses a group of super cats who can turn into tornados to save the Earth.
