Winter’s Tail :: DS Game Review

Winter is a little dolphin who lost her tail in an accident. This game is based on her story. Play along and find out how Winter learned to swim again. Also, check out the full story of Winter on Kidzworld.


Terrific Tail

Take an exciting journey on your Nintendo DS and learn about the real-life story of Winter the Dolphin. Based on the Scholastic Book from the No. 1 New York Times Best Selling Authors of Owen & Mzee, the game includes the fully interactive book Winter’s Tail read by the authors Juliana, Isabella and Craig Hatkoff. The game tells Winter's story in a variety of ways: both in storybook format and through mini-games.

    Here's how the game works: Post a ship of famous fictional characters, and the user following you must describe what the kid would be like. If it is two male or female characters, screw it, do the same thing. For example: Deadpool x Lady Death (Death-pool) Their kid would probably be a judge in the afterlife, serving insane justice to the worst of the worst. He would dawn his daddy's traditional garb, but his ribs are outside of his body and his face is sunken like a skull. He also carries a scythe with several machine guns attached to the side, with which he reaps the souls of the wicked. The first person to post chooses the first ship.
