Nintendo DSi or iPhone


Casual Game

Why it needs to be made:

There aren't many games that use the microphone capabilities of the DSi and iPhone. This game uses the microphone to test how quickly players can react.

Each mini-game has a number of levels (with increasing difficulty) that the player should complete to become a master at that game.

Why it will be a compelling game:

The game will appeal to children since they are simple games children can understand easily and help children learn. Adults may be interested in playing the game to improve their reflexes.
