The Unsung DS Game!

This week there will be a number of game passing under the radar with the launching of the boy in green , The Legend of Zelda - Phantom Hourglass 2 weeks ago, The boy with orange hair, Bleach - The Blade of Fates. One wielding a short sword with a pixie guiding his way and another with a fiery orange hair and a big a** sword ( or is it katana? ) chopping up everything in sight. Intriguing, No?

But there are quite a few amazing unsung, under the table, unknown ( enough ) title coming our way. Two of the best unsung game that I am looking forward to are on the funnies side. Touch Detective 2 1/2 by Atlus. A sequal to Touch Detective and Looney Tunes: Duck Amuck by Warner.

Touch Detectives as Wikipedia says is are as so

The player controls the titular detective Mackenzie as she solves four mysteries in the small town of Osawari. Both the art style (which is reminiscent of 1960s anime) and the plot reflect a subtle fantasy mood - for example, the first case is to track down a thief who is stealing someone's dreams. Aside from the main plots, there are also a number of small "bonus" mysteries that involve much simpler tasks. There is also a "Touch Notebook" containing a list of major items in the game the player has touched.

The game play is similar to many PC adventure games and is entirely controlled via the touch screen. Tapping a location on the screen will talk to a character or examine an object. The player has an inventory of items collected, and may use them on other items or objects in the environment. The player can also communicate with the characters along conversation trees or present inventory items to them to learn new information. Mackenzie's pet mushroom, Funghi, is used as an aid in some puzzles.

What endears me to the game is the wry and dry humor which the protagonist exudes, the thinks that come out of her mouth and the thought that she have at the same time. Both reminds us of who we really are, of how two sided we are when we talk to our everyday companion. The puzzle is slightly more illogical but the dialog provided is anything but normal. A must get if you like humor, puzzle and detective in one shot.

Looney Tunes: Duck Amuck though is another game that I have personally been waiting for. There is not much news on how the game would be but based on the title, I dare say it would be something within the line of messing up Daffy Duck life again.
Below are article quoted from Wikipedia

Duck Amuck is a surreal 1951 animated cartoon produced by Warner Bros. and released in 1953 as part of the Merrie Melodies series. It stars Daffy Duck, who is tormented by a sadistic, unseen animator who constantly changes Daffy's location, clothing, voice, physical appearance, and even shape. Pandemonium reigns throughout the cartoon as Daffy attempts to steer the action back to some kind of normality, only for the animator to either ignore him or, more frequently, to over-literally interpret his increasingly frantic demands.
If you have been liking Daffy Duck and want to do your best to ruin his life yet again, do make your booking for this game. Current fastest delivery time is 5 days from play-asia.
