Blended provide DS owners with the perfect mix of learning, intellectual stimulus and addictive puzzle action. What’s more, they’re all heading your way this Autumn – just in time for those cold train commutes to work or a little bit of extra-curricular activity for pupils starting the new term. Similar to the popular “gem-swapping” genre of games, Blended takes things a step further by challenging players to mix colours together to create groups of three or more. Using the stylus, it’s incredibly easy to blend yellow and blue to make green or red and blue to make purple, just like an artist’s palette. But you’ve got to be careful to use the correct colours, otherwise you’ll create a grey splodge that can’t be mixed. With six different modes to text your skills, it’s the perfect way to liven up those dull moments.
• Simple but addictive gameplay
• Four different single-player modes: Quick Draw, Freehand, Puzzle and Painter
• Two multiplayer modes: Tug of War and Speed Painting
• Wireless demo to send to friends with a Nintendo DS
