Playing first-person shooters on the Nintendo DS may seem like an unusual idea at first, until you realize just how many ports of Call of Duty games are available on the system. While the original handheld has since been discontinued for years now, development for it has not stopped, and now you can even enjoy the wonders and pains of Counter-Strike on the Nintendo DS! An alpha version is now available for download, developed by a well-known programmer for Nintendo DS, PSVita, Wii, GameBoy, and more. Check out a video of the game running in the Nintendo DS below, as well as details on how you yourself can knife and smoke in the game, provided you have a DS as well.
The Counter-Strike port makes great use of the limited control options on the Nintendo DS, with the touchscreen replacing your need for a mouse for a system that’s not unlike what Call of Duty used for in their own DS games. The version used here seems to be a heavily downgraded version of Counter-Strike Source, one of the most popular versions of the game next to 1.6.
Fewnity, the game’s developer, also put up links to download the alpha version of the game via either MEGA or Mediafire. If you’re unfamiliar with the homebrew scene which allows these types of projects to be made possible, you can check out a well-maintained guide here or join this project’s Discord server.
Of course, both Nintendo 3DS and 2DS users are also able to play this one thanks to the wonders of homebrew, and you can check out a guide for playing DS titles on the systems here.
Nintendo DS users are not the only ones who will be able to play this special port, though, as it appears that Fewnity also showed Counter-Strike running on a PlayStation Vita a few months back. No word on the development, though, so be sure to stay tuned here at MP1st for more!
