    So far, im dissapointed at the lack of good double-screen platformer games for the DS that do NOT require the stylus. I'm longing for a platformer that is made for the DS and not just a GBA port like Yoshi's Island or a game that has a single playable screen and a map screen like New Super Mario Bros. What I'm looking for is a double-screen playable platformer. I've come across 2 games that have this functionality -- one a homebrew called Everlasting Love and Sonic Rush, but I'm not a big Sonic fan and the homebrew, well, its just a homebrew.

    Does anyone know of a good double-screen playable platformer or shooter? side or top scrolling? anything?

    I find double-screen platformers annoying, due to the gap in the screens. Either it hides part of the level, or it's odd how things move from screen to screen.

    Yoshi's Island and Sonic Rush are it really.

    Chronos Twin is out on 30th, was an GBA game but should work better with DS.

    Yoshi's Island DS is awesome. Some extra features added to the classic SNES version that gives it more tilt value.
