    What is ScummVM DS?
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ScummVM DS is a part of the ScummVM project. The ScummVM project is an attempt to re-engineer many classic point and click adventure games of the 80s and 90s to run on modern computer hardware. Technology has changed a lot since these games were written, and so ScummVM attempts to replicate the
    gameplay of the original games in exacting details, without any of the original code that the game ran on. ScummVM needs a copy of the original game, in order to take the graphics, sound, and scripts that made the game work.

    ScummVM is written in such a way that it can be 'ported' from one type of machine to another, and ScummVM DS is a port of ScummVM to the Nintendo DS handheld games console.

    Features:
    * Runs nearly all of Lucasarts' SCUMM games up to and including Sam & Max Hit the Road
    * Runs many non-Lucasarts point-and-click adventures too
    * Supports sound
    * Provides a GUI to change settings and choose games
    * Supports using the DS touch screen for controls
    * Suports saving games to compatible flash cards
    * All games run at pretty much full speed

    Which games are compatible with ScummVM DS?
    I'm glad you asked. Here is a list of the compatible games in version 1.2.1.
    Demo versions of the games listed should work too.

    Flight of the Amazon Queen, Beneath a Steel Sky, and Lure of the Temptress have generously been released as freeware by the original authors, Revolution Software which can be found at http://www.revolution.co.uk/.
    This is a great thing and we should support Revolution for being so kind to us. You can download the game data from the official ScummVM download page at http://www.scummvm.org/downloads.php.

    The other games on this list are commercial, and still under copyright, which means downloading them without paying for it is illegal. You can probably find a second-hand copy on eBay. Please don't email me to ask for a copy, as I am unable to send it to you.

    Full Throttle and The Dig can run on the DS using an external RAM pack plugged into slot-2 (the GBA slot). To do this, download the special build of ScummVM DS from here: http://forums.scummvm.org/viewtopic.php?t=7044

    There is no support for Windows Humongous Entertainment games, Broken Sword, and all other games that run at 640x480 resolution. The DS cannot cope with scaling these games down to 256x192, the resolution of the DS screens.
