Walk With Me is a Improvement game available on the DS.
Walk With Me is a Improvement game. Self improvement games tap into the popular trend in exercise, workouts and therapy. Experiences as diverse as Brain Training on Nintendo DS and Wii-Fit on the Nintendo Wii have popularised the idea that games can be about more than just having fun - they can improve your brain, body and even mental outlook on life.
We have our reporters and community keeping an eye on Walk With Me for you, and we'll keep you up to date with the latest developments as they happen.
Walk with me is the new incentive from Nintendo to get us off the couch and up on our feet. The game kits you out with a clever little activity meter which intelligently beams all your day's walking activities back to your DS. More than just walking though, the game aims to chart your 'life rhythms' and displays patterns of activity showing whether your most active times are the morning, daytime or evening.
The game seems to be aimed at fairly sedentary people with the default step count set at a modest 3,000. As a busy mum of three, I set mine to 6,000 steps and had reached my goal by lunchtime!
