Advantages: Customizable avatar
Disadvantages: Not compatible with pictochat, downloaders wont see the customizations, silly credits
The DS is great and all but there are some really rubbish games for it, a lot of games coming out nowadays are just average games or worse that you'd be better off not buying.
Ping Pals is one of them. It's sort of an improved version of Pictochat which is on all DS consoles. What's worse it's not compatible with Pictochat. Luckily people can use Download Play to chat to you with it but it's inconvenient.
Ping Pals allows customization instead of the plain Pictochat. This includes avatars, backgrounds and so on.
What's bad, you don't these add-ons as standard. You have to purchase them using in game credit for doing things and it takes a lot of credit even to get one item. Also, once you've bought it, if you decide you don't like it you can't sell it back. You need to log on at certain times and often in order to have some items become available to buy. You do get some credits for playing the game, though.
Guess what, your friends who download it won't be able to see them...
What a load of rubbish.
Summary: A terrible game
