While sports-themed mini-games are a dime a dozen in the video game market these days, DUALPENSPORTS manages to differentiate itself in a big way by being the first to have dual-stylus controls. In order to play, players have to set their 3DS down on a table and use two styluses -- one in each hand -- to control the game. For example, in the soccer mini-game, players use their left hand to move and their right hand to kick the ball. Most of the activities work really well with these controls, although obviously it makes the 3DS a much less portable system.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
