HEXUS.gaming chat to Inlight's VP of creative development about their side-scrolling zombie adventure,Teenage Zombies: Invasion of the Alien Brain Thingys!
"We make very good use of the touch screens/stylus in Stylus Mini-games and the BBC (Big Brain Challenge). For example, one of the games lets the Player sling-shot one of the zombies, Lefty, into the air to smash alien brains and feed her cohort, Fins. In another mini-game, Lefty, a former basketball player, shoots hoops using brains instead of balls! While both use the stylus the play patterns are quite different. Actually, all of the DS controls are used pretty extensively. In addition to the D-pad, the buttons are also used for attacks, opening elevators, puking (yes PUKING!), gathering power-ups, etc. So I'd say that it was pretty well balanced from a hardware input standpoint."
