The Sims 2 Castaway DS)
Ages: Everyone

This games is a dream on the DS. Wisely, it has been pared down to only a single crewmember, with clear and adequate choices for customization.. A tiny keyboard on the touch screen brings up the keyboard, a light bulb in the center of the touch screen I you contact with your Sims latest endeavor. In fact, everything is done on the touch screen. The top screen is used to keep your Sim's Motive levels right in front of you. Having two screens makes a big difference.

Moving is as simple as touching the screen to you where you want your to go,. When your Sim wants "to go" select a bush and pick Use from the options. You still have to attend to all the basic needs. Sleeping and saving is done in the shelter you build. Food you find and cleanliness is as close as the sea. Like the other versions, once you get all the pieces together things construct themselves. As you continue to wander and explore, you will meet other Sims to satisfy you companionship needs.

The organization and controls feel easy. A map icon gets you immediately to places where you have been. The graphics show lush jungle, sandy beaches, rocky outcrops almost wish you were there. A great pocket game.

Fun Factor: Lots of fun in your pocket
Female Factor: Your choice
Player Friendly: Room for three saves.
