    These are 9 of my favorite homebrew games in no particular order:

    Very fun platformer/action game. Similar to alien hominid, but no one hit-dies. Sort of short with only 2 levels, but the bosses, different enemie types, and multiple weapons give it great replayability.

    A ds port of the program stepmania,a DDR simulator, it can play any of the .sm files made for stepmania. It has easy to use controls, and is a great game.

    Bouncy Marble 2
    A ds remake of "icy tower." You have to bounce up a tower performing combos. Scores and replays can be uploaded online. You can also watch the replays other people have uploaded and learn there strategy.

    Dojo Rumble
    You are a ninja defeating enemies with dashes to protect your dojo. After collecting several combos you go slowmo, also known as rumble time. It uses both screens.

    Inside the Machine
    A platform game were you control a small...animal. Several bosses and plenty of enemies make the game replayable, even the it is sort of short.

    Metal Slug Combat
    A 2d fighting game similar to street fighter. It is multiplayer only, however you only need one ds. You have several attacks most of which are on the touch screen. There are several maps, though they are just bg changes.

    A port of the flash game also called red, you have to shoot missiles away from your base, you have two weapons, multiple powerups, and "boss meteors." Also after reaching level 5 you get acheckpoint for future games.

    The ds version of the computer game. This version lets you record your time. You can also earn achievements which unlock mods.

    A rythm game. It has 4 songs, each with 2 notesets. There are a total of 20 diffrent notes on the bottom screen. The game takes practice, but when you get good you can get some amazing scores.

    If you disagree with me feel free to post your top (insert number) homebrew games in this thread. If you do please also include a short description of each.

    I like video games hero, but it's not one of my favorites.

    I just found this great game, its called magnetron. Its similar to robotron. I haven't had a chance to try it on my DS, but it works on NO$GBA.
