It's a safe bet that most Nintendo DS owners are probably too young to have ever played Midway's popular touch-screen games that are found atop bars across the country. But that hasn't stopped Midway from releasing Touchmaster, a nice compilation of 23...

If there is one genre that the DS has always done well it is puzzle games. Whether you have the simplistic standard fare or perhaps an old favorite jazzed up...

Tons Of Games, Small Price ; Online Leaderboards ; Plays Great

While Nintendo is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with thanks to its newfound success in the “games for non-gamers” sector, it seems like a lot of people have come under the assumption that this is a phenomenon created by Nintendo. Others may...

Lots of good simple games in one nifty package ; Stuff like a favorites menu and online scoreboards are a nice touch

Lots of crappy games mixed in with the good ones ; Unimpressive presentation

Fans of card and parlor games will find some good stuff here, even though they’ll have to shuffle through the various games included here to find it. Just keep in mind that you can play games just like these for free on your PC.

Compiling over 20 mini-games together, Midway has created a DS cart that nearly everyone can get some enjoyment out of. Everything from puzzlers to word games to card games is included in Touchmaster, all faithful to the name of the game. Additionally,...

Touchmaster is definitely worth picking up around the $15 to $20 mark, but not full retail price. Folks that enjoy competing over the online leaderboards will definitely get a kick out of playing some of the mini-games over and over. There is enough...

TouchMaster will keep you content for as long as you need a distraction, then be conveniently forgettable when you don't need its company anymore.

Though TouchMaster will likely never be the most cherished game in your DS collection, it serves a valuable purpose and would be a smart addition to just about anyone's library. Just don't expect anything revolutionary…and make sure you play it with...

This unassuming collection gets the job done but doesn't do much more.

20+ games to stick your stylus into, er, or something like that

Online menus and navigation a bit more difficult than need be

If there ever was a title that was meant to be ported to the DS, Midway's TouchMaster is it. The tabletop machine often found in bars is a collection of over 20 simple games, easily controlled by a touchable screen. It would have taken a lot to mess up...

TouchMaster for Nintendo DS from Midway brings some of your favorite bar and arcade games home. You have probably seen the touch screen games at your local bars and ...

Basically, TouchMaster is a bunch of mini games that will keep you entertained for a few minutes here and there and I am not surprised that they were originally designed to suck down quarters at a bar. I think they would do that well, but once you...

Online connectivity to leaderboards; a pretty good amount of mini-games to play

10 overpriced; most of the games end too quickly; can be found in any bar machine for 25 cents a pop

So Midway wants to make us all Touchmasters. Er, wait, that sounds almost disturbing. Do I really want to go out in public and describe myself as a "touch master"? And wait, what if someone wants prove that I've got the magic touch? What if it's a girl...

There are very few times where a game is released that is a compilation that actually breaks new ground or makes an impact in the industry. Usually

To my surprise Touchmaster really did capture what a good compilation is made of. While there are some graphical shortcomings, the overall experience still has what it takes to make for a great game purchase. This is not the next big blockbuster on the...
