Nintendogs, not yet out in Europe, shows what we can expect from software exclusive to the Nintendo DS: unique games that use touch and voice controls rather than mere conventional buttons. The latest of these to be released in Japan is Another Code: Two Memories. Pitched as an interactive novel as much as a game, Another Code follows the adventures of Ashley, a young girl. Receiving a message that she is to be re-united with her long-lost father on an isolated island, she makes her way to the mysterious isle to find out what’s going on. On her arrival, it becomes clear that Ashley’s father is nowhere to be found. Alarm bells start ringing but she has no choice other than to explore the island. It’s then that things start to get weird and as she searches for her father she finds herself involved in a dark and unpleasant plot.

The game is very much in the vein of the long neglected Adventure genre. Taking on the role of Ashley, players will get drawn in as the storyline unfolds. ‘Point and click’ titles on the PC like Sam and Max were a rich and popular form of gaming at one time, but with the advent of the 3D revolution developers stopped exploring the possibilities of the style. Now with games like Another Code and Martin Mystere finding their way onto various machines, let’s hope we’ll see a renewal in popularity for these fun, cerebral, and above all accessible games.
