Igel Ärgern on the DS

Continuing the apparent trend of German game designers colliding with the Nintendo DS (it's happened twice that I know of and therefore it is a trend, you see), Doris & Frank's Igel Ärgern has been ported to the hand-held system, under the title Hurry Up Hedgehog. As the name suggests, it's a game about a hedgehog race. I don't think it gets any deeper than that, and why should it? Just look at those little guys; they're adorable. It's slated for release later this month.

I'm under the impression that Igel Ärgern is a beloved classic among European gamers, first published in the 1980s. As far as I know, it's never enjoyed an English-language edition, and I've never had the chance to play it (though several of my local friends own it anyway). If you say "hedgehog racing" to a typical American they're more likely to think of this thing, if they think of anything at all.

    I think a few Americans might associate "hedgehog racing" with an obscure old video game by Sega. Those people might be confused about why the hedgehogs in this game aren't blue, or wearing hi-top sneakers.
