A great portable version of Namco's light gun gameThis DS game is a remix of Namco's popular Point Blank arcade and Playstation video games. Of course, you'll be using your stylus, in lieu of a light gun, but, otherwise, the experience is much the same. There are about 40 different mini shooting games for you to play across multiple modes (arcade, practice, vs, etc.) While there are standard things like shooting criminals, clay targets, and birds, there's also zanier fare like shearing sheep and blasting empty cans floating down a river into a container!
The game controls well (all you have to do is tap with the stylus, no buttons required) and both the graphics and music are pretty nice.
There's also a Brain Age type affair where you play four of the randomly picked mini games and then the doctor and his zany bird will assign you 1-of-100 silly job titles based on your performance. I get "Beatnik Cop" most often, make of that what you will!
This is a great game to play in short bursts and four different skill levels means that players of all ages and levels of ability should be able to get some fun out of it. While the gameplay is simple arcade fare, it's satisfying and fun to try to best your top scores.
