Gaming to Go: Crosswords DS

Ready to slow things down a bit? Sure, sitting down with a good ol' crossword puzzle might not get the blood pounding, but there's something simple and serene about filling in the grids at a leisurely pace. It's a game of patience and dedication, not to mention smarts -- not the typical fare for...

Gaming to Go: Exit DS

Sometimes the stylus is a beautiful thing. Such a tiny white stick has infinite potential for interaction, introducing new control schemes and input methods to a industry clinging dearly to its buttons. Nintendo clearly has no qualms taking a risk with its input devices, if that semi-popular...

Gaming to Go: The Quest Trio

You've played this game before. Probably. See, here's the thing -- The Quest Trio isn't a singular title so much as it is a collection of games, as an in-depth analysis of the title would probably suggest. For your money you'll get a variant of Bejeweled, an interesting version of Solitaire, and...

Gaming to Go: The Quest Trio (p2)

The first of the trio is Jewel Quest Solitaire, which takes Solitaire and Bejeweled and mashes them together into a strangely compelling mix. The premise is simpler than it sounds: you're given one deck, referred to as the foundation pile, and an overturned card next to it. Above that you'll have...

Gaming to Go: The Quest Trio (p3)

You have a pretty good deal here, considering that the entire package runs for only twenty dollars. Mah Jong Quest Expeditions and Jewel Quest Expeditions both debuted for around the same price back in 2007, so getting both of them with a new game entirely for the same cost makes for a...

Gaming to Go: Space Invaders Extreme

My fingers hurt. If Space Invaders Extreme is anything, it's an absolute workout for the fingers, a test of endurance, passion, and an opportunity for developer Taito to take an old formula and crank things up to 11. Very rarely does slapping on the word 'extreme' actually mean anything, but this...

Gaming to Go: Space Invaders Extreme (p3)

So what are you waiting for? Space Invaders Extreme is apparently out of stock on Amazon until January 2, 2009, but even the thought of dragging the piggy bank out and hitting up your local store shouldn't deter you. If you haven't experienced it yet, this version of Space Invaders is one...

Gaming to Go: Sonic Rush

This is the other occasion where you're allowed to roll your eyes and say "Well, duh." A Sonic the Hedgehog game being featured for its emphasis on speed? Yeah, it's not a revolutionary concept, but it's still not quite the immediate conclusion one might have drawn some ten or fifteen years back....

Gaming to Go: Prism: Light the Way

CALAMITY! The light is gone! In the dark? You aren't the only one. The cute little story sequence at the beginning of Prism: Light the Way speaks of Bulboids, Glowbos, and an even stranger assortment of words, describing some horrific process wherein a star monster is totally crashing an...

Gaming to Go: Touchmaster

Touchmaster? It's a great game, sure, what with the twenty-three different activities packed tightly into that tiny plastic cartridge. I can scarce imagine the marketing ploy that lead to naming it something quite so charming as Touchmaster, though, which invokes imagery of things totally not...
