Not content with the 2D antics of those old fashioned flat board games with the dice, Hasbro decided to join the 3D games movement of the 80s and 90s. The idea was simple: get a bunch of wooden blocks and tell people they can't let them fall over, but that they have to do things that will inevitably lead to said wooden blocks falling down. It resembles, in many ways, some kind of obscure torture for drunk people. And so, Jenga was born. Now the game has taken the next step in its evolution and leapt onto the Nintendo DS.

Jenga on the DS, as you'd expect, is played with the touch screen and stylus. Players tip the DS on its side, as with Nintendo's Brain Training titles, and have to manipulate the blocks from the tower, trying to avoid a virtual collapse. If you're the sort of Jenga player who likes to tap the blocks before they move them, fear not. The blocks will flash red, yellow and green to show how much risk shuffling them will put you at.

Now you don't have to wait until you get home to play Jenga drunk.
