Top DS Games for Kids on the Go

Kids today know more about technology than we do and there’s been a massive rise in the number of gaming consoles, one of the most popular of which is the Nintendo DS which is great as it can be taken anywhere. If you’ve got kids who are gamers and want to get them something to keep them entertained over the summer holidays, then try out these top games which have plenty to keep their brains buzzing.

Professor Layton and the Curious Village/Professor Layton and Pandora’s Box

Help Professor Layton and his sidekick Luke to solve the mystery of the story, solving riddles, puzzles, brainteasers, optical illusions, and logic and wordplay games along the way. There’s plenty to keep the kid’s entertained here and will keep their brains active too.

Animal Crossing Wild World

This is one for kids who want loads of gameplay time as its set in a ‘real time’ setting which runs simultaneously with the real world. You kids can build villages, which are populated with humanistic animals, and their characters can fish, do some gardening and interact with their friends with the online mode.

New Super Mario Bros

Super Mario has been around for a long time for a good reason – plenty of fun and challenges here and the multiplayer mode let kids play against their friends. Chase Bowser through the fun levels to rescue the Princess Peach using turtle shells, Yoshi and plenty of moves to defeat your enemies.

Pokemon Diamond

Pokémon is hugely popular with kids and they love building up their Pokémon and catching new ones. You’ll travel to the Sinnoh region where you are in search of the legendary Dialga and Palkia Pokémon, capturing and training new Pokémon along the way and battling against the pesky Team Galaxy.


Animal lovers will adore Nintendogs and if your little ones are nagging you t to get a real puppy then this will definitely distract them. There are quite a few different version available these days including Dachshund, Labrador and Chihuahua and your kids can learn all about taking care of their dogs – everything from cleaning up after them, to feeding them and taking them for walks.

Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

Another long running series but this new addition to the franchise is just as engaging, making use of the unique features of the DS to battle through dungeons and puzzles. Plenty of replayability here and will keep kids absorbed for hours.

    It is very likely you will see this in action on your mid-week visits,
    so one thing you can do is actually do a short mid-week trip to exploit this behaviour
    and even pre-bait your swim while fishing at the weekend deliberately
    to exploit the swim mid-week. There may be a few of the species there year round but at
    certain times there are large numbers of them present.
    You are able to entry the best fishing spots having a little, maneuverable craft, getting
    into areas exactly where other fishermen dare to tread.

    Like any game, when we stay within the rules, we
    score, and when we play outside the rules there of course is a penalty.
    Age Level – A good factor to write about is the appropriate age
    level for the video game that you are reviewing.
    Are you a Kansas City Chiefs or Pittsburgh Steelers fan.

    If you intend to go on an outdoor escapade and are in search of a high quality branded tent such as
    or some outdoor clothing and footwear and other outdoor gears that are offered at affordable prices then have a look at Great Outdoors.
    Even though most liquid fuel stoves are more powerful and provide great heat output than canister stoves, they are
    not as convenient.
