    I have a list of all games I'm playing or have played on my DS Lite in Book Mode. This is where you turn the DS as if you're reading a book.

    - Golgo-13: G-13 File o Oe
    - DS Bimoji Training
    - DS Dengeki Bunko Visual Novels
    - Nanashi no Game (English Patched)
    - Sword World 2.0: Gamebook DS

    I want to know if there's any more of these type of games out there because I enjoy using the DS in unorthodox ways.

    Nanashi no Game....seriously, two of your friends have died/disappeared and you go to a abandoned hospital alone. Are you stupid or just tempting fate?

    Away from civilization.
    It depends. What type of games do you like?

    There's quite a few of them. Some being dating-sim games, though.

    Lone Wolf DS is a homebrew that is viewed entirely in book mode, if gamebooks are your thing.

    I remembered more!
    • Flips: Artemis Fowl
    • Flips: Cathy Cassidy
    • Flips: Enid Blyton's Adventure Series
    • Flips: Faraway Tree Stories
    • Flips: Mr. Gum
    • Flips: Percy Jackson
    • Flips: Too Ghoul for School
    These are all games (not unlike 100 Classic Books) held in book mode. They include multiple books per included series. The only downside is that they're Europe-only games and there aren't many that are actually worth getting.

    I would recommend the Artemis Fowl one. It has an in-"game" dictionary (which are linked directly from the words in the actual book. You can't view this dictionary otherwise, IIRC), extra content based on the books, and it's all around nice if you want to read Artemis Fowl on the go but don't want to lug around 5 or 6 thick books. However, as it's the only Flips game I've checked out, my recommendation is slightly biased.

    I'm playing Hotel Dusk: Room 215 now. It's not half bad. However, a bit slow paced for me. It's pretty fun though.

    You're not going to find a lot of fast paced games that require you to hold the ds side ways, it just doesn't...work. Oh i believe ninja gaiden is book mode too, and that's a pretty fast paced action game, try it out!

    But you don't hold the DS sideways while playing it.
