Gamers have to 'boop-oop-a-doop' their way through Betty Boop's Double Shift, a new Nintendo DS game from DSI Games. Players take control of iconic cartoon star Betty Boop as she tries to earn enough money to go to Hollywood. Betty Boop was created in the 1930s and is as charming today as she was then. Unfortunately this game turn the vivacious Betty into a poor cardboard cut-out. The game play involves Betty working at Gramps Jazz Club. Her first shift is waiting tables and the second is singing with the band. During first shift, you have to help Betty take orders from customers who either want a milkshake, sweets or a song request for the band. Once she has the orders, they have to be sent to the kitchen and then picked up. Different customers' orders are different colours so you have to be sure to match the orders to the right table. The second shift is a poor man's version of a rhythm and beat game. On the top screen, there is a music score and a moving red dot. The bottom screen shows a mixture of note values which you have to tap in the right order as the red dot passes by the notes above. The problem is, it doesn't matter if you tap at the right time, as long as you tap all the notes before the red dot reaches the end. The series is repeated over and over, merely being sped up to increase difficulty. Graphics wise, DSI Games has faithfully rendered characters in the original style. But the animation resembles a college student's Macromedia Flash game. The characters are wooden and have very few poses. Betty deserves more than this.
