    I'm surprised there isn't talk about one of the most addictive games out . . . Bookworm!
    It came out on Tuesday. IGN gave it an 8.4.

    I've played the PC version . . . has anyone played the DS version? Is it worthy? Does it have a 2 player, 1 cart, 1 DS mode (hotseat)?

    Any chance this will get dumped before I head to Cancun next Thursday?

    Ooh! I hope this gets dumped soon. I enjoyed the PC versions. The GBA version was good also.

    I heard that the DSiware version is some hex tile swap game like Hexic. Lame.

    If it was, they wouldn't call it Bookworm and it wouldn't be a port.

    The iPhone version is crazy fun so I'm sure the DS one will be/is great as well.

    Actually, I think the DSiWare version is just a less featured version of the DS version.

    The Bookworm DS version is out there now. Doesn't seem to work on M3 Real (sakura) or AKi (according to release group). Hopefully just a bad dump? Been looking forward to this game.

    Tried on newest firmware for M3Real (non-Sakura) that has the latest fix for Zelda. Black screen on load. I am thinking that it is a bad dump.

    I have it on my PalmOS handheld and my WM device. I want it for my DSL! Is there a rom dump that works on DSL? (No, don't give me a link!!! I just want to know if it exists).

    1. Have you read this thread at all, no one can find it.
    2. How selfish are you!?! Please PM you when it's found*? So that just you and you alone benefit?
    3. No one can legitimately answer you anyway as we are not allowed to post links - as per the rules.

    Well, It's available at Amazon, so I assume it is available everywhere.

    I just don't understand how it hasn't been dumped yet . . . considering all the EXCELLENT titles that have been dumped in the past week . . .

    I just hope I get it before Thursday so my wife and I have something to play on the plane to Cancun.
