Game Profile

5TH Cell invites players from all backgrounds to use their imagination and wit in this groundbreaking, original IP for the Nintendo DS!

The premise is simple: The player uses the touch-screen to help their character, Maxwell, acquire the star in each level by solving a series of puzzles. The twist is, in order to solve each puzzle the players use the notepad to write down objects that are used to reach the goal.

This game is all about experimentation, imagination and endless replay value. Think of anything, write it down, and watch it come alive! Write Anything, Solve Everything!


  • Bring any noun to life by writing or typing it in the notepad! All objects behave as they would in real life. Flee from aggressive monsters, save a fairy princess, or swim under the ocean with a mighty whale! Whatever you imagine will come alive!
  • Hundreds of unique scenarios that range from simple (get the Starite out of a tree!) to complex mechanic based puzzles. Solve puzzles in dozens of completely unique ways.
  • Numerous environments, multiple game modes, and unlockable content provide a lasting and enjoyable experience!
