Fun game for novices and kids,
This review is from: Art Academy - Nintendo DS (Video Game)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The primary user of this game is my 6.5 year old who absolutely loved experimenting with different techniques without even realizing that she was "learning". Each lesson provided her with a sense of accomplishment and she would complement her DSi lessons with the traditional paper-and-pencil mode..(and our refrigerator door and my home office has more than enough proof of her enthusiasm). In fact, this game got her interested enough that we invested in Let's Draw! as well. For a young one, this is a very good way to introduce some preliminary techniques - she benefited the most from the color mixing theory....The inability to email pictures is a major disappointment for my child who uses a digital camera to take snapshots to send it to grandparents...
From an adult user perspective, this is likely to be less satisfying. Lessons are progressively structured, but the challenge is virtually non-existent and you will soon get tired of improving one's "apple" masterpiece.
Overall, good intro to drawing techniques, mostly aimed at children...and absolute novices.

you mentioned that you cant email the pictures. ive heard if you get the dsi version in the dsi store it gives you the option to save it to your facebook or photo gallery on the dsi and then onto a sd card. the version in the dsi store is in 2 parts but its pretty much the same game (just split in half). you can get one part for like $8.00 if you just want it for the saving options for some of the lessons and free paint. you would need to get both if you want to be able to save and store on a sd card for the whole game.
