Well first of all you start off on this mystical island where you have be deserted, you slowly find ways of surviving ; eating,making tools,shelters. With ds you have a bar which tells you if your sim is happy or not, your sim get happier as it finds new people on the island. The game is awfully reapetitive, and when you are stuck doesn't give much help.
So overall i rate this
Fun 4 stars
Addictive 5 stars
So a good game for the ds (a bit short)
