Based upon the film equivalent, which in itself is based upon a classic series of children's novels, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events is exactly what it says it is, telling the tale of a trio of orphans who live in a world of madness where happiness is far outweighed by sorrow.

Depressing as that may sound, the harsh plot of the adventure makes it very easy for a young target audience to feel connected with the game's three leads and become immersed in what is a short, but involving adventure.

Where the game's console counterparts were brought to life in a fully-fledged 3D offering, the GBA rendition of the book-cum-film-cum-game is portrayed as a classic 2D scrolling platformer - a genre very well suited to Nintendo's handheld.

From the outset, the Lemony Snicket adventure feels comfortable. Playing as any of the three orphans, you'll be charged with scaling multi-tiered levels, laying to rest a number of enemies and generally jumping from platform to platform in order to progress further into the adventure. It's not exactly revolutionary, but that's hardly the point. It sets out to be a quirky, fun platform game and that's just what it is.

While the GBA version of A Series of Unfortunate Events is nothing ground-breaking, it's a solid game and a brilliantly well-told story that will leave its mark on many who come across it.

I noticed it had a '4 for £10' sign, so looked for other titles in the same promo and ended up ordering these:

Can these be used with ds lite?
#7
yup, the DS is backwards compatible, so adavance games do work on it - as soon as my kids got their DS's they just put in the old advance games and pretty much ignored most DS games! Typical! :D
#8
I'm not a fan of the GBA version (or PC for that matter) but as a heads up, the PS2 and Xbox versions of this game are REALLY good.

And benefit massively from replacing Jude Law with Tim Curry as "Lemony".

Sorry, I'm a bit of a games ignoramus - can these be used with my sons Nintendo DS (or is that like a 'lite'?).
#10
Hey, don't call yourself an ignoramus Quids!

Anyway, 'backwards compatible' means that the Nintendo DS (and Nintendo DS Lite which is the slimmer, snazzier version of the origina nintendo DS) will play the games from the consoles in the nintendo family that came before them. So that means gameboy advance games WILL play in the nintendo DS and DS lite.

The short answer to your question 'can they be used in (your) son's Nintendo DS' is yes, they can :D

Thanks. you're very kind.

(But I am an ignoramus with IT - I only recently worked out that tippex on the PC screen won't work.)

Just as an aside...

Yes, the DS and DS lite are backwards compatible for the Advance... but the backwards compatibility ends there. You can not run Gameboy or Gameboy color games on a DS (even though you could on an advance). so its not true backwards compatibility but you should be fine with these. :)
