Slide Adventure: Mag Kid is a game for Nintendo DS published by Nintendo and developed by Agenda. The game revolves around the player controlling Mag Kid around a typical suburban home enviroment, collecting items other characters request. The game was released in Japan in August 2007, and no plans for localisation have been announced.
The game is unique in that in ships with a "Slide Controller". Acting similarily to an optical mouse, this device connects to the GBA port of the Nintendo DS and is placed on a flat surface. The player then moves the Nintendo DS on this surface and Mag Kid replicates these movements on-screen. To date, it is the only game to use this peripheral, and as such it is not sold separately.
The game was not successful commerically in Japan, selling less than 10,000 copies in it's first 2 months on the market. The game scored 29/40 in Japan's Famitsu Weekly magazine, with the 4 reviewers giving it 7/7/7/8.
