Nanostray 1 and 2 are very good shooters for the ds. There is pinball of the dead for GBA, a very good game. There are a handful of pinball games for the ds. None as good as Metriod.

there's Pinball Pulse: the ancients beckon(DSiware) which is supposedly from the same guys as metroid pinball
for the rest there aren't any noteworthy pinball games. (they either have horrible physics engines, or make bad use of dual-screen)

Metroid Prime Pinball is there, and there's a few DSiWare pinball games. For "space shooting" (which is like most shmups), there's Nanostray, Space Invaders Extreme, and a few non-space themed shmups like Zombie BBQ.

Metroid Pinball is the best, but Dream Pinball is about the best after that. There's Flipper Critters, that's kind of a wacky take on pinball. The other pinball games were bad to abysmal. There's not much in the way of pinball games for the DS worth mentioning.
With shmups, you have a little more variety.

Nanostray 1 and 2. Exclusive DS shoot'em-ups. Very good graphics for DS games. High challenge level. Goes from 2.5D side-scroller action to 3D to fight bosses. They're pretty good games.

Konami Classic Arcade has the arcade Gradius, Rainbow Bell, Scramble and Time Pilot. Retro Game Challenge has some generic (but pretty decent) shmups in it. Namco Museum has the classic Galaxian and Galaga, as well as Xevious and Super Xevious. Retro Atari Classics has Asteroids, Centipede, Missile Command (these are remakes and not emulations, so they aren't the best, but I enjoy Asteroids) in it. You might also like Geometry Wars, XG Blast and Zombie BBQ.

Homebrew shumups: WarhawkDS and OpenTyrian. Warhawk is fast and frantic, but short levels with a boss at the end. OpenTyrian is an awesome port to the DS from the PC game Tyrian 2000. Customize your ship to combat the baddies! There are ohers, but those are the best.

Emulators....

NeoDS. A NeoGeo emulator that works well on DS and has a variety of different games to choose from, but converting the roms to those .neo files can be tricky if you don't know what you're doing. Runs even even better if you have a slot2 cart....like an EZFlash IV or 3in1. NeoGeo had a few good shmups.

jEnesisDS and SNEmulDS to replay old 16-bit shmups. There are plenty of various emulators for DS, all emulating much older systems of course.

There's lots of homebrew for DS that I didn't mention.......Google is your friend......

Even homebrew or emulation doesn't really give you much in the way of a good video pinball game on a DS. The DS itself doesn't really have a good range of either shmups or pinball games available, but at least homebrew and emulation gives you a few more choices, especially for shmups.

Make sure you check out Ketsui Death Label. It's a shoot 'em up (shmup) and it's mostly all in English, so no problems there. My favorite DS game other than Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ.

thanks for all the suggestions, as i only have the dsi XL i cannot play any GBA games with the acekard 2i?

warhawk looks good but crappy grafix, i wished they had a NEW modern day shooter game like that warhawk or a new nanostray 3,

i know the DS is mainly geared towards kids, and im a grown adult that is just a casual gamer, i just 'hoard' games

R-Type rules, one of the best side scrolling Shoot 'Em Ups.

The last SNES version is pretty good, try an SNES emulator.

Otherwise check out Truxton 2/ Tatsujin II on Raine/ Mame, it's an awesome game.

    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
