Basically what the title says, I'm starting some IV treatment tomorrow and once a week I have to get it for one hour and I can only use one of my hands to play my DS, what are some great games that can be played with only one hand?

I'm guessing most recommendations are going to be touch-based but come on let's hear it.

Um can't you just not play a game for an hour once a week?
If not any turned based rpg

Disagea, Luminus Arc 1 & 2

if you have big hands it's possible to play lego rockband (or just play with stylus

I'd go with that, personally.

Anyway, probably most purely touched based games. Just lay it on your lap and play. Rhythm Heaven, Go! Go! Cosmo Cops!, WireWay, Professor Layton, WarioWare Touched!

Saw the name of this thread, and practically shit myself.

My guess would be almost any touch-based games.


Of course, it is only one hour. Just watch TV or read a book or something.

It's one hour in a doctor's office, not my house lol, there's no one to talk, no TV to watch, not anything.

If I can play a game instead of sitting one hour straight doing nothing then... why not play a game? I could also read a book but it's not like it's a hassle playing touch-only games with one hand.

Thanks for the suggestions.

You're very welcome. I hope you like at least some of the suggestions, so your time won't be ruined by horribleness and 2 handed controls or something.

Well it will be a hassle to take your DS out with one hand and open it with one hand without the chances of dropping it

Meteos. It's simple, 1-handable, fun as hell, and slightly addictive.

As far as something not touch-based, Culdcept DS (with Theli's latest WIP translation patch). It's really engaging, and it kills time like nobody's business.

What, are you doing something naughty w/ your other hand?

Read the first post.......

On Topic:
Proffessor Layton, Brain Training, Big Bang Mini and Big Brain Academy are all really easy to play one handed. When i play i hold it with one hand and play it with the other. In your case you could put it on your lap and just play using your free hand. You can basically play all touch screen only games like this.
