Overlord on DS is quite a different proposition from theWii game. Here, you have just four goblin thingies to control, each with its own unique talent (water-resistance, inflammability and so on). These skills have to be applied to a range of simplistic puzzles in order to progress, so expect minion-swapping, block-pushing and switch-pressing aplenty.
Don%26rsquo;t even think about playing this on an old DS %26ndash; everything%26rsquo;s so brown and murky you need the power of DS Lite to see what%26rsquo;s happening. There%26rsquo;s some woeful glitching and crudely drawn static cutscenes too. The game%26rsquo;s entirely stylus controlled, which generally works well, but it can descend into incoherent screen-swiping during combat. The whole thing just feels insubstantial, and while we%26rsquo;d say it%26rsquo;s passable for younger gamers, there%26rsquo;s a teen rating on the box for some reason.
