Nintendo DS classic Touch Detective now available in the Google Play Store


Released for the Nintendo DS back in 2006, cult favorite Touch Detective finally makes its way onto Android devices. Released today on the Google Play, the game stars a young detective girl who solves mysterious with her pet fungus and friends. The game plays like a traditional point-n-click adventure that’s both lighthearted and endearing.

That being said, Touch Detective definitely wont be everyone’s cup of tea, not just because of the gameplay but because of it’s Japanese-style (sometimes strange) humor. I’d say definitely give it a go if you’re a fan of the genre, it is free to download after all. Keep in mind the game is broken up in to chapters, of which only the first is free to play. After that, you can unlock additional chapters (3 total) via in-app purchases of $4 each, or snag a deal by downloading ’em all at once for $9. Hey, this was a $35 Nintendo DS game back in the day. You can download the first chapter of Touch Detective after the video below.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. I know nothing of this game but, I can tell it’s a quality looking one. Need more games like this in the Android community.

  2. Doesn’t look like it’s working all that well for many specific devices, including my Galaxy S3

  3. I would love a Pokemon game if it was released on the Play Store, even if it was the original Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow. My main concern is I don’t want to have a lot of devices with me at all times, rather have it on my phone. Pokemon and maybe a Zelda game would be the only games I would want on my phone (can you tell I don’t really play games on my phone?), but those games aren’t enough for me to actually go out and buy another handheld system to play them.

    1. get an emulator buddy ;)

  4. It begins…

    This English doesn’t look like that of a legit company who’s released DS games over here. o_O
