The Motherloot Blog: Product Reviews

Congratulations to Betty (Commenter #299) on winning our Nintendo DS games giveaway. Betty said, ” My favorite game to relax after a long day is bejeweled but with the kids it’s Uno, hands down.”  Thank you to everyone who entered and we look forward to offering contests to our readers regularly and sharing our loot with you. As a frugal gal, I know what a treat it is and that is why giveaways will always be a priority here!

If you have a Nintendo DS in your possession or are planning to give a Nintendo DS away for a holiday gift, I have the ultimate giveaway for you. Today I am giving away FOUR Nintendo DS games to complete your gaming collection. Yup, you read that right- FOUR games.

Here is some information about each of the games:

Build-A-Bear is a Nintendo DS simulation that recreates the in-store experience. Gameplay offers a unique immersive experience, which replicates the process of shopping and creating a Bear when entering a Build-A-Bear Workshop store. The game allows you to approach the Build-A-Bear Workshop concept with the same hands-on and do it yourself formula. This level of interactivity is achieved through the use of the touch screen, wireless technology, enhanced graphics and innovative control mechanism. Choose, create and customize your own personal virtual Bear and participate in various activities with your new furry friend.

Based on the classic “Rubik’s Cube” puzzle of the 80′s, this other worldly game will look like and play like no other game out there. Rubik’s World is a collection of extremely addictive, easy to pick up puzzle games that increase in difficulty as the player delves deeper in this brave new world. But, these games are not mere mini-games, but serious puzzlers and brain teasers, offering the player an immersive experience whether it be for a few minutes or a few hours.

Relax by playing puzzle games inspired by the movements of the tide, rippling water, riffs and corals, beach vegetation and sea life. Zenses Ocean is an indulgent, soothing experience with high quality visuals and ambient sounds inspired by the natural sounds of the sea. Subliminal addictive puzzles such as Hot Spot, Shell Twirl, Turtle Turn, Pearl Diver and Wave Breaker were created to give you an escape from the stress of every day life.

Explore the Amazon while playing games infused with rain drops, exotic flowers, waterfalls and giant trees. Zenses Rainforest encourages you to recharge your batteries while playing puzzle games such as Sapphire Wheel, Mirror Maze, Stack Jack and Bumble Breaker.

To enter this contest, tell me your favorite game to play. It can be a DS game, board game, online game, anything that is entertaining to you! Leave your comment by 11/11 (Tuesday) at 8PM (Eastern time) and we will enter your name into the drawing. Thanks so much for entering & good luck to each of you!

    My favorite games to play as a kid were (uhmmmm and still are!) Candy Land, Don’t Break the Ice, and uhmm the surgery one you know where the guys nose lights up when you touch the side with the tweezers (I love that game) and that other one that has all the shapes you gotta put in before the time runs out and it all pops up at you.

    Any Game! Boy that’s tough, from cards to board games to good ‘old bobbing for apples – with all the new high tech gear out there like NDS and Wii, boy it’s a hard choice. My ultimate favorite all time is NES Trog! It’s what I would call a cutier verison of pac-man. Fire-breathing Dinos?! T-Rex eating cavemen! It’s the best… go out an try it.
