This treasure hunting game will make you want to get out and explore!

Future explorers and treasure hunters pay attention! Treasure World is a Nintendo DS game that utilizes the built-in Wi-Fi to search for different Wi-Fi hotspots and signals. Every time you walk into a new Wi-Fi zone, you will unlock a new treasure in the game!

Wishfinder to the Rescue!

You play the character of Wishfinder, a robot who is helping its master, Starsweep, find treasure stars to refuel their spaceship. To begin, you must dress Wishfinder up so that he will blend in with the inhabitants of the planet you crash on. If you think the outfits for Wishfinder are a a little blah, don't worry! Some of the treasure you unlock will be costumes for Wishfinder. You can dress up as a ninja, pirate, panda, and much more! Not only can you find outfits for Wishfinder, but you can find items to decorate your garden. There are a ton of themes so you can have something cool like an [KWLINK 14868]amusement park. With over 2,500 treasure items to find, there is something for everyone.

In order to refuel your spaceship (and find treasure) you must clean the stars with Wishfinder. It sounds hard, but once Starsweep explains how to do it, you'll be a pro in no time at all.

Explore your World!

New treasure will only unlock when you move into a brand new Wi-Fi area, which encourages players to go outdoors and explore. You won't have to stare at your DS the whole time, as the game can run in "Hunt" mode and it will make a sound whenever you walk into a new hotspot. It's a great way to be able to do things with your friends and play on your DS.

Speaking of sounds, Treasure World allows you to make your own tunes for different items. Once you have a garden and music to be proud of, you can join clubtreasureworld.com to show off all that you have. You can also share your music with new friends and arrange for trades for items that you don't have.

Navigating the Stars

It can be a little boring waiting for Wishfinder to clean the stars and refuel your spaceship. But there's so much stuff to do once you've finished cleaning the stars that you won't mind the wait too much.

Sharing is Caring

Whether on Club Treasure World or on Nintendo's Wi-Fi Connection, be sure to share everything you have, since you won't lose any of your items by doing so! This game will be boring to people who want a good story and lots of action. But, if you love exploring, treasure hunts, and collecting things, then be sure to pick up a copy of Treasure World for the Nintendo DS!
