If you've ever spent any time hanging out in bars (something we would never, ever do -- did we mention never ever?), then it's likely you've stumbled across Midway's touch screen games at some point. Now, in a marriage of gaming goodness that seems so obvious in retrospect that we're surprised it took them so long, Midway is bringing a collection of some of their best touch screen games to the DS. Entitled Touchmaster DS
, the game will include 23 different games from the arcade machines, including trivia, card games, and puzzlers.
Sounds pretty average for a collection of casual games ... but there's a twist. Touchmaster DS
will use the Nintendo WiFi connection to interface with Midway's own scoring system, so player rankings will be compared with those of people all over the world. Players will also be able to participate in tournaments.
Midway expects to release the game later this year.
