    Hey guys, my girlfriend is really into time management games. Her favorite is Diner Dash and Sally's Salon.

    So far, the only time management games that the DS offers that I am aware of is Diner Dash, that cake game, and some betty boop game.

    Betty boop is a bad knock off of diner dash.
    Cake Mania is just blah.
    And we own diner dash.

    I was wondering if you guys knew of any other games similar to those. If there is a game similar to Sally's Salon, Please tell me.

    Is there a way that I can put a computer game on my DS?

    Anyways, Thanks for all the help

    The only way to put a computer game on your DS is with DS Linux, but I highly doubt any games will really play on the DS any where near playable.

    As for "Time Management" games, check out this link to the GameFaqs DS 'puzzle' section :

    I hope you find some good games for the GF, I know it's hard... my GF likes those brain trainers and such, but i hate them, lol

    yea we have a whole bunch of those brain trainers too. Thanks for your help. I've look around on sites but they just don't have like a specific category for it. And the search continues....

    Oh the irony.
    @FreshSoul, Toyshop isn't exactly Diner Dash, but it's a simulation of a toy shop.
    Haven't tried it, but it should be similar.
    And saying that, there are many other simulation games out there.
    Theme Park, SimCity, etc.

    the greatest time management game? real life.

    i dunno but mayb simcity? you do manage your city over a period of time.... it's a pretty weak genre being there are not so many games out there and usually repetitive play.. suggest you try cooking mama 1 and or 2.. not quite wat u request but still good if your were into diner dash

    LoL.. yea I saw those people that posted nonsense comments. But umm... Thank you everyone or your help. Yea I downloaded theme park and what not, but its just so much better playing on he computer. I guess I'm looking for more simple games. Wish there was the other diner dash series or the salon series. Nintendo needs to make some of those games!!!

    Oh and dawn.. loved your comment. real life..

    Time Management? I'm not sure such genre exists. I thought it was... strategy? Or simulation?

    Anyway, Anno 1701 is a decent game, and is actually fun.

    Harvest Moon is by some means a time-management game, you know [​IMG]




    P.S. : I can't believe you like Diner Dash, it sucks (well, I've played the PC version, mind you, PC version is great, but seeing a mockery like that in DS seems more than I can handle)

    I played Harvest Moon DS and I was, like, WTF? Is this Forget-Me-Not Valley? The one in Harvest Moon : A Wonderful Life?

    My sister had a hard time remembering what is where, not for me though *grin*

    But, really, using Forget-Me-Not Valley is not a bright idea, although the idea of multiple farm sites is good
