    I forgot what its called but I think its Hotel Dusk :S? Oh and theres this japenese game where you have to get out of the area (usually a room) the game is all over the web but they decided to make it for the ds. Its fun and scary at the same time cause its like playing as a character in Saw. Not sure if that goes into crime solving tho. Hope I could help and if not than flame at me [​IMG]

    Trace Memories / Another code *
    hotel dusk room 215 *
    touch detective 1 & 2
    Broken Sword, Shadow of The Templars *
    Last King Of Africa
    Secret Files-Tunguska *
    Syberia
    Theresia
    Undercover: Dual Motives

    Runaway 2 The dream of the Turtle
    (This is an ok port to DS, some thought has gone to making it work BUT the touch screen controls during the dialogue are HORRID, you WILL pick the wrong dialogue choice 80% of the time no matter how careful you are).

    Ankh
    (if you don't mind foreign language with english subtitles. I don't think this was ever released on the DS with english voice over (maybe its not that great a port, the game is just an ok adventure game on the PC)

    ---

    Almost all of these are worth a little investigation. Those with an asterix (*) are ones I enjoyed most.

    A bit more experimental/acquired taste games you might look at,

    Flower, Sun and Rain
    Lux Pain

    They revel in their weirdness and people seem to either love or hate them. Lux Pain isn't really a game though, there's not much investigation or even any gameplay, its more of a visual novel/anime.

    I do not recommend Jake Hunter Detective Chronicles or Unsolved Crimes, steer well clear of Unsolved Crimes.

    JH is not that bad. I guess it's not so well received since the English version only has the beginning of the Japanese version so the real gameplay has not picked up yet. As from the test play of mine they introduce new elements with each new chapter but as you don't have all you are sort of stuck half-way through the tutorial so to speak. Not the class of Phoenix Wright and company but not as stupid and dull as UC is.

    Here is a very kind review, and they still thought it was worth passing by.

    I was looking forward to its release myself based on the graphics and what not, but it quickly became tedious.

    Also worth a mention, scummVM DS. (homebrew)

    http://scummvm.drunkencoders.com/

    You can play quite a few adventure games on the DS with this. Including some of the late great lucasarts adventures.

    The original is great, the DS port is rubbish tho.
