Here is a sugary-sweet game that quietly slid under the door. Released on January 19 in the States and arriving on February 9 in Europe, Gaia's Moon is an auto-scrolling flight game for DSiWare. That's right! I can't believe DSiWare content is still trickling in!
You play a young magician named Atreyu who soars through the skies on a flying cane -- sorry, no Falcor here -- while dodging strange baddies and flying dolphin thingies. It's very simple, requiring only a single button to keep Atreyu aloft, and there seems to be plenty of variety in the obstacles you'll encounter. In addition to the endless adventure mode, there's a multiplayer mode in which two people can play on the same machine at once. I love it when DS games do that!
If you don't mind the absence of Luck Dragons, you can grab Gaia's Moon for 200 points ($1.99 on eShop).
