EgoTrip updated his Nintendo DS homebrew game Ice Slider. Ice Slider is a puzzle game, with the objective of collecting 10 coins on each level. However, there is a catch, once you start moving, you cannot stop until you hit an obstacle. Obstacles include brick walls which cannot be passed, ice walls that break when bumped into, and directional walls which you can only move through in the indicated direction. There are 80 levels in total, which should keep you busy for a while.

NesDS by huiminghao is a Nintendo Entertainment System emulator for Nintendo DS.
Chris e-mailed us to let you all know about his brand new Nintendo DS app:
He pretty much describes it best:
Find out if you are seated at table sixty-nine in any radix!
We all know the situation: you go out for a meal at the pub/cafÃ©/restaurant or whatever. What table do you choose? One by the window? One out of the drought? One strategically near the bar? No, the correct answer is the one with the most amusing table number, i.e 69. All too often though, some scoundrels have got there first, or more likely, the establishment does not have 69 tables.
However, dining disappointment can be averted! There may only be one (if any) table 69 but there are many table sixty-nines! Thanks to the existence of non-decimal numerical bases and this application, you can for example sit at table 23, look it up on this software, go to the bar and inform the attractive person taking your order that you are “seated at table sixty-nine! In base thirty-three.” Whereupon they will swoon at your intelligence and wit and give you their phone number, possibly.
Clown 3D by bl0ckeduser is a little technical demo, which might turn out into a game. You can jump around in 3D worlds, collect keys that open doors and shoot bullets that disintegrate as soon as they touch an object.
