Electroplankton

Game Description: In this sea, you'll encounter ten unique species of tiny Electroplankton that respond to your touch and voice to create unforgettable sounds and melodies. Interacting with this wide and wild variety of Electroplankton is as simple as sliding your stylus across the Touch Screen. Toy with Tracy plankton and listen to their music as they swim along the lines you draw. Clap your hands or use your voice to lead a microscopic synchronized swimming team of Nanocarp. There are ten fascinating plankton to play with in all! The latest work by world-renowned Japanese media artist Toshio Iwai, Electroplankton bursts to life exclusively on the Nintendo DS.

Electroplankton – Review

Described by artist-creator Tosho Iwai as a mixture of a microscope, a tape recorder, a synthesizer and a Nintendo Entertainment System, the program (which is the safest thing I can call it) makes as much sense as that mission statement seems to. The best way to approach it is to think that it's an experience to be felt with the senses the DS is able to cater to, by its use of touchscreen and button interaction with graphical elements to create sound.

Gunstar Super Heroes – Second Opinion

Comparing Gunstar Super Heroes to We Love Katamari doesn't make much sense to me. They are both cash-in sequels that rehash their originals, but I think there's a big difference between a rehash that comes out 12 months later and one that comes out 12 years later.

Gunstar Super Heroes – Review

Almost every boss—as ever, the beating heart of a Treasure level—is recycled from GH. Players keep expecting some kind of pay-off for those of us willing to accept these throwbacks as 'knowing references', but it doesn't come, and they're not. They're insipid and annoying regurgitations.

Rebelstar Tactical Command – Review

In the early days of the first PlayStation, a quirky PC strategy game was ported onto the console and immediately secured a place on my all-time favorites list. That game was called X-Com: UFO Defense, and to this day I have fond memories of hours spent positioning operatives and planning strategies down to the smallest detail in order to eradicate invading bug-eyed aliens from Mother Earth. Rebelstar Tactical Command may not be a directly related, but the family resemblance is impossible to ignore.
