In Electroplankton, art and music collide to create a wildly fresh interactive audio experience. Players will encounter 10 unique species that respond to their touch and voice to create unforgettable sounds and melodies. Interacting with this wide and wild variety of Electroplankton is as simple as sliding the stylus across the touch screen. Toy with Tracy plankton and listen to their music as they swim along drawn lines. Players clap their hands or use their voices to lead a microscopic synchronized swimming team of Nanocarp. There are 10 fascinating plankton to play with in all.
The latest work by world-renowned Japanese media artist Toshio Iwai, Electroplankton bursts to life exclusively on the Nintendo DS. A new interactive music and media experience awaits - watch it, touch it, listen to it ... and feel it.
  • Tracy: Draw lines through the water and listen as the plankton swim along the path to create mysterious music.
  • Hanenbow: Launch adorable plankton through the air and listen to the music they make as they bounce from leaf to leaf.
  • Luminaria: Tap arrows to create intricate paths the plankton will follow to create mesmerizing songs.
  • Sun-Animalcule: Use the stylus to plant plankton eggs. Marvel as they emit sound and light as they grow.
  • Rec-Rec: A plankton that acts as a sampler, allowing players to record up to four sounds and layer them over drum loops.
  • Nanocarp: Players clap their hands to set microscopic synchronized swimmers into action.
  • Lumiloop: Spin donut-shaped sea creatures with the stylus to hear them emit warm, humming tones.
  • Marine-Snow: Stir these delicate snow-crystal plankton to create haunting piano melodies.
  • Beatnes: Players tap these wriggling creatures to create their own funky NES remixes.
  • Volvoice: Players use this plankton to record their voices (or any other sound they can think of), then warp and twist them beyond recognition.

 another reason to get a ds

thes game is one of the best i've ever played, the problem is that its starting to get hard to find.
The best thing to do is plug ur ds into a stereo, time to find a cable in maplins!
Although you can't save your creations and its not multiplayer.

 Ok if You're Stuck in a Small Cramped Space

I'm a music freak. Utterly obsessed with music. Electroplankton seemed good.

Basically, you tap this "fish" and they make different sounds. This is like Cbeebies or, or, I DON'T KNOW! This game angers me in it's simplicity. Spend £30 on something worth it. This game has no aim. No goal. Just "memorising" sounds. ARGH!

 Refreshingly different, relaxing, clever, alive, quirky

There is some clever stuff in this atmospheric 'game'. It is more of a past time than a game. I just mess around with it every so often. It can be good to chill with, and it is great when you hook it up to a decent stereo too.

Basically, there are 10 instruments that you can play that make different sounds. These are all different types of animated marine lifeforms. You can play one type at a time only, and usually different ones of each type make similar sounds. However, the way you interact with each type is different, and this allows you to make some reasonably complex sound patterns. A couple of the types are really a bit naff, but a couple of them are really quite cool. The one where you bounce fish off the leaves of a plant is my favourite. You can vary the angle of leaves and the initial trajectory of the fish, and the rate at which the are thrown. Since the tone of the fish hitting the leaf varies with how often the leaf is struck and where on the leaf is struck and how big the leaf is, you can make some really interesting sound patterns and tweak them easily. The animations are pretty well modeled, and the whole commotion is quite artistic. This game is really cool and different.

The shame is that you cannot store your compositions or share them wirelessly.

There are 2 modes of play - you either make all of the noise, or it does it and you join in as little or as much as you like.

This is somehow a special game to me. I love the presentation, the character, the physics, the sounds, the whole concept. Checkout the youtube videos if you're not quite sure. I think it is great. It is just so different, and so well suited to the DS.

This is not a game with a goal or a hi-score etc. What it is though, is a great way to chill out. This is one of the few games that you can play just before you go to bed and you'll be able to close your DS and drift off into a comfortable slumber... If you like interactive art style pieces then this might be for you, if you're looking for a challenge get Elite Beat Agents instead.
