Product Details:

The classic sporting game series of Track and Field celebrates its' 25th Anniversary by coming to the Nintendo DS. All the excitement and fun of the original titles is brought up to date with a bright and stylish new look, more events and online play. The hyper-addictive gameplay was developed to take full advantage of the touch screen and stylus, thus providing gamers with a unique experience on the DS. Players can either dip into single events or take on the challenge of the sporting career mode. Test your skills against the world via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connect and see if you have what it takes to become the best in the world. Going beyond mere online play New International Track and Field features online tournaments and worldwide rankings.

  • Free Paint Mode allows the player to create works of art when ever and where ever they are inspired.
  • There are different types of Pencil and Brush types for the player to choose from when creating their art. This gives the player a lot of creative freedom when painting and drawing.
  • Paints are easily mixed on a painter's pallet to get the desired colors. They can also be diluted with water to adjust the color saturation. The player can even choose how much paint is on the brush at a given time.
  • The Gallery is an area where the player can frame and save all of the artwork they create. Gallery Images can be displayed in a slide show or viewed one at a time.
  • Art Academy includes all 10 of the lessons and tools from both Art Academy: First Semester and Art Academy: Second Semester, which were previously only available as Nintendo DSiWare downloads. Plus there are 10 Mini Lessons and over 80 motifs that the player can choose from to use as reference material when creating their art.
  • When playing Art Academy on the Nintendo DSi system, the player has the added feature of using the built in cameras to create reference material. The player can take a photo and save it into the gallery and then use it in Free Paint Mode.
  • The player can send the Demo lesson via the local wireless connection of their Nintendo DS to another Nintendo DS to be tried by another player.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from $20 for 15 lessons, YES!!! The great thing about Art Academy is the lessons are actually real! No fake tips or instant correct on your art! One bad thing is the small screen. You will be amazed at the depth and creativity in which makes Art Academy one of the highest rated DS art game.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! This game is great for people who like to draw and paint or would like to learn how to draw and paint. I always knew I was good at drawing, but I didn't know I was this good! Because of this game I am becoming an amazing Artist. This is a very accurate game. Vince, our art teacher in the game tells you "What you will learn here in this game can be applied in real life." I was a skeptic about his statement at first because I thought drawing or painting wont be the same on an actual canvas, but it really is! I was in shock when I went to purchase real art supplies like pencils and brushes and found that the 2B, 2H, and HB pencils existed out of the game. The graphics in this game are amazing it really feels like your drawing and painting on a canvas or a sheet of paper. Everything you do in the game you can do just as well when actually applying it in life. Although I love this game I would not recommend it to people who really have no hope at drawing (Such as my best friend:p) or anyone who doesn't have the patience or the dedication to learn. I'd say this game is for someone who already has a natural has a gift to be an Artist or has a great chance at getting really good. The artwork found in this game is really intense, it doesn't teach you how to draw step by step it just gives you a lot of information on how to be a better Artist. I'm sure anyone could master this though if their dedicated.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you love art then you will LOVE this! This game teaches you how to draw FANTASTIC! art with such ease.The lessons are easy to learn and they take a while but in the end its all worth it! There is also free draw mode (wich I use alot) you sketch out your pic with the pencil tool and then you can paint it in.This game has tought me alot about art and I really recommend it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This has helped me become so better at art! I may be a very skilled atist above many things but i thought "why not practice a little more?" "it couldent hurt right?" Although instead i got the training of my dreams not only for the "flipnote hatena" that I am so addicted to but in all manors of art.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Game! This game is really neat :D People whine about not being able to go back to pencils after switching to paint, but do you really do that in real life. The lessons are neat. Ive made some amazing pictures :D The background music isn't loud and annoying like most games. I really wish there was a way to upload your pics to the computer :( But over all I give it a 10/10 :D

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The poor man's tablet I've worked with plenty of different art mediums before, but I never really had the opportunity to work with digital tools due to monetary issues. Art Academy is a good substitute! The lessons are great for beginning artists, and for those looking to branch out to different styles that they normally wouldn't paint/draw in. If what someone said in another review is true, then I made the right decision in purchasing the DSi Ware version. I rather like being able to save what I paint to an SD card so I can later upload it to my online gallery. As stated earlier, the lessons are good, but the real fun comes with Free Paint mode where you can create your own images!
