Death Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom
The DS has had its fair
share of hit and miss games and fortunately Death Jr. and the Science
Fair of Doom is not one of those games which is a combination of
Adventure, Arcade and Action that is suited to gamers of all ages.
Gamers are transformed into Death Jr. as he travels through a myriad of
strange science experiments gone wrong but fortunately for Death, he has
an ally in girlfriend Pandora.

In its essence, this
title is an arcade game that focuses on adventure and action as gamers
must navigate through a highly detailed gaming environment as they slay
their way through a wide myriad of opponents. Fortunately for you, Death
has a scythe which basically allows you slice your way through the
title. The game is also a platformer where you must use whatever skills
you have to reach the required stages.
The title also has an interesting
story which sees Death trying to right
his school gone wrong. The idea of this title is to investigate why your
school has gone crazy with monsters and toxic waste as you battle to
save your classmates and regain your father's scythe in order to makes
thing right again in the world.
The control system is rather apt on the DS with the touch screen used
which does make the game more interactive. As Death, you can cut your way
to victory, however you must also rely on your Goth girlfriend Pandora
who has the ability to turn into spirit form and collect souls.
Graphically, the title is rather impressive on the DS with cartoon
style graphics that really suits the genre. The textures are a little
low resolution but the characters themselves really make the game
entertaining and match that with some special effects and it's a very
good looking game on the Nintendo DS.
In conclusion Death Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom is a great title
that although aimed at all ages is more probably more suited for the
younger gamer but it's definitely one of the better games on the market
at the moment.
