All About Pommii
I Am An Air Traffic Controller is an air traffic controller simulation game for Nintendo DS. The game requires the player to take control of an airport control tower for a period. During this period the player needs to achieve a certain score based on orders given to planes and safe take offs and landings. The game has a total of 15 challenges.
The airports are all 5 international and domestic Japanese airports, which are:
- Fukuoka Airport
- Kansai International Airport
- Chubu Centrair International Airport
- Tokyo International Airport
- New Chitose Airport
Personally I have always enjoyed and had interest in sim games; and was keen to see what this game was all about. Firstly each airport has to be individually unlocked by completing the three skill levels associated with each airport.
Although the game play is consistent, each airport and skill level applies different attributes and variable to keep you thinking. In 2008 Gamespot awarded it the Most Surprisingly Good Game and I can see why, although I expected to find the game very repetitive (which it is) I find myself continually drawn back to it.
Although it is not a game that I could sit and play for hours on end, I do enjoy picking it up and playing 30 minute stints. If you enjoy playing sim's and are just looking for a simple and cheap game, this could be the one for you.

Zumba Fitness was developed by Pipeworks Software and published by Majesco Entertainment; based on the Zumba program, the game supports up to four players.
Like to dance and stay in shape?
Zumba fitness offers interactive Zumba you can do in your living room. It features nine different dance formats such as salsa, samba and hip hop with various levels of difficulties. As you progress, stages unlock and new routines emerge. It even offers you a workout calendar and multiple player options.
I have been going to Zumba for the past 6 months and paying $10 each time. I thought it would be hard for me to get use to it but I was wrong. It appears to have a few of the same routines my instructors use including the music. It was great to have that familiarity and brand new routines I've never tried. I have been anxiously waiting for this game and it has met every expectation and more. I loved the atmosphere it creates by its colourful graphics and lively music. It was better than continuously spending my money on going out to Zumba when I can have it right at home whenever I want.
