    You could try the Broken Sword GBA port though there you play the DS version or the original via Scummvm. But I should say the GBA isn't a gread console for adventure games.

    I'd finished Broken Sword twice: the original on PC and Director's Cut on DS so.... nah, I think I won't play the GBA port anymore

    There are not so many straight adventure games on the GBA (most are RPGs, strategy RPGs or platformers with a story). Still Broken Sword got ported over and was OK and a Nancy Drew game also got ported but opinion is very divided on it (I have never played it though).
    After this you are looking at the odd action light TV show, film, toy or cartoon tie in which you will not thank me for pointing you at (isometric fetch quest in the Bratz universe being the general idea) and if I push it Mazes of Fate for the GBA (an old school first person dungeon crawler but it has a fairly nice story that is up there for me with many adventure games).

    Japanese fares somewhat better as you might expect but I am not aware of anything that got translated (I have yet to see an adventure game that requires little in the way of Language skills) officially or otherwise aside from some people attempting to backport the DS translation of phoenix wright (gyakuten saiban) to the GBA (ostensibly to allow it to be played on the PSP) and if you can count it as such then Love Hina Advance ( http://www.romhacking.net/trans/581/ ).
    Even then most of the Japanese adventures titles are the "but a step away from dating sim" type games with phoenix wright and Silent Hill being the main exceptions (others might include Kamaitachi no Yoru, possibly Zero One, Tantei Jinguuji Saburo, higanbana and the meitantei Conan games although they are more puzzle games with a story).

    You do have the likes of http://www.pocketheaven.com/ph/wiki/GBAGI though.

    @FAST: That Nancy Drew one is good. It has an awkward password save system though. It's a pain in the ass really.

    Oh man. I used to play Leisure Suit Larry on my GBA with that while working at the library. Good times.
