Yuji Naka's Ivy the Kiwi should be on the DS

A action/puzzle game with touch screen controls and a quirky art style? It's gotta be a DS game, right? Evidently not. Yuji Naka, former Sonic Team lead and now head of Prope, who made the criminally never-played Let's Tap, has revealed his latest game. Ivy the Kiwi is a game where players draw vines of ivy in order to guide and launch an ever walking baby kiwi through 50 different levels. You may check it out in the video above and then start wondering why it's on Windows phone and not the DS.

Actually, there may be plenty of reasons that the quirky little game is showing up away from Nintendo's money printing press, but none of them are going to stand up to the argument that the game would receive a hell of a lot more attention on the DS then it's going to get on Windows phone, especially considering it's getting a holiday release in December. Games sell well at this time of year. I'd say I'm just upset about missing out on this game, but it doesn't look all that amazing anyway, despite the developer's pedigree and the art style.
