Advantages: Gets harder as you progress, lots of different games
In this game you choose a character (boy or girl) the aim of the game is to collect stickers, there are 48 in total. You begin in a playground area, there are many other children in the area who have certain skills, e.g. football, basketball, dodgeball. You have to play against each of the children to win a sticker. Once you beat a certain amount of children there are 3 other areas which can be unlocked.
After you win the sticker from each child you can play them two more times to win marbles from them (this is like the currency in the game) you then use the marbles to buy more stickers. The aim is to collect all of the stickers
There are 3 levels of difficultly for each sport, you have to complete the easy and medium first before you can do the hard.
Once you have unlocked the games you can also play them seperately to try to beat your high scores.
The activities are fun and as they get harder become more challenging as the levels get harder.
The only downside with having to complete the easy then the medium then the hard is that you have to move between areas because they are not all in the same one, it is then a bit confusing to work out who you have beaten and who you havent.
The game makes good use of the ds capabilities, using the sound, stylus, control pad and microphone.
Overall a fantastic game which gets more challenging with each difficulty.
Suitable for variety of ages I'm 21 and I've enjoyed playing it. Once you understand how to play its easy to understand but some of the games are quite hard expecially on the highest level so not a game for young children. Maybe 8+ might be able to play it.
Summary: Very good game definately worth buying
