Vingt-et-Un, the developer responsible for some of the weirder Simple 2000
games like The Zombie vs. Ambulance,
have created a new entry in D3 Publisher
's Simple DS series. Simple DS Vol. 14: The Driving School is a DS program designed to teach the rules of the road, with text-based quizzes and drills. It also attempts to teach driving skill with "practical" driving-instruction segments.
This looks great for us, since we taught ourselves to drive on Spy Hunter
anyway. We just need to break our habit of trying to drive into 18-wheelers and we'll have it down.
While we're talking about this game, we want to complain about the lack of Simple series games in the US. D3 started a US branch, and they currently publish the Naruto
games, but the only games we've seen from their hilarious budget series were Break 'em All
and Dino Rider.
The Xbox 360
just got Earth Defense Force--
we hope that's the start of a trend.
