Labyrinth DS Review
Do you like puzzle games? ThinkSMART Games has adapted Labyrinth into a DS Game, so you can play this classic board game on-the-go. With features like Adventure Mode, Quick Match, Single-Card Download and Multi-Card Play, this game is totally fun!
How the Game Works
Using the stylus, players need to slide pieces of pathways in order to create a pathway that will lead them to certain treasures. It requires a lot ofthinkingand planning, because other players are also trying to place pieces down to make their own pathways! This means their piece may break up your pathway or put a halt in your plan. This is a great game for ThinkSMART Games to adapt for the DS not only because it’s a classic, but because it utilizes the stylus effectively, bringing this household Board Game into the pockets of DS owners!
There are several modes in the game. The most notable one is the Campagin Mode, where you are helping the boy Alok in his quest to find treasures in order to rescue his kidnapped father. If you are looking for a quick game, there is also the Quick Match option that does not involve a storyline. This game uses the wireless capabilities of the DS quite effectively. It includes both Single-Card Download Play and Multi-Card Play, something that is often overlooked when board games get adapted onto hand-held consoles.
Two Thumbs Up
This is a great game for both kids and adults. It stood the test of time in Board Game form, and it is equally fun and exciting in the new DS form! By adding in a storyline and utilizing DS features, ThinkSMART Games successfully brought a classic Board Game into the new generation! If you enjoy Board Games, puzzles, or “thinking games”, you should definitely try out Labyrinth!
