Time Extend: Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime

EDGE: " Handheld consoles have a peculiar power: the power to bring out the best or the worst in developers. While many teams blunder, either by engaging in quixotic struggles to cram existing templates into a smaller space, or by simply sidling on to the new hardware trailing clouds of lethargy and minigames, there are a brave few who see the shift in tech as a chance to shift direction too. Rather than retread or rehash, they instead offer asides to their main franchises that don’t only play to the latest platform’s strengths, but can shed a completely new light on the source material at the same time." (Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime, Nintendo DS)
