Visit 10 crazy worlds with 10 levels, each offering over 100
puzzles designed to frustrate and delight - 50 of which are
all new and DS exclusive. Use the DS stylus and touch screen
to guide AiAi, MeeMee, GonGon and Baby through this slice
of monkey madness. Four classic party games, playable in both
single and multiplayer modes: Monkey Race, Monkey Fight,
Monkey Mini-Golf and Monkey Bowling. There are also
two all-new DS exclusive party games: Monkey Hockey
and Monkey Wars...
Monkey Ball: Touch & Roll is not quite what it could
have been. The old classic Monkey Ball series makes
its first leap onto the Nintendo DS console. And while the
optional use of the stylus is a neat gimick - you'll soon
be back to traditional controls when you realise what a pain
using the stylus is. It works okay, but unless you are willing
to put in a few hours to get used to it, I'd stick with the
idea of the game is to roll your little monkeys, in their
little balls, around each level to unlock new worlds. You
can either play your way through the worlds, or enter the
practice mode in order to work out how to complete those levels
that are a pain to finish.
word of warning though, if you decide to use the stylus, ignore
the lower screen which shows your monkey ball. This image
is misleading and doesn't help you complete the levels one
bit. In fact, to be honest it's a serious pain and you are
much better ignoring the bottom screen.
inclusion of the four classic party games (Monkey Race,
Monkey Fight, Monkey Mini-Golf and Monkey Bowling)
are exciting enough - but Sega spoil Nintendo DS owners with
the inclusion of two new mini-games: Monkey Hockey
and Monkey War.
a bit of extra care Touch & Roll could have been
a much better game. Monkey Ball fans, though, will
not be too disappointed.
