    OK, I've just found out that i won't have electricity the entire day tomorrow. I haven't been playing anything on the DS for the past few months and i will go crazy tomorrow if i don't get anything, since it will also be raining most of the day.
    Now, exams are coming up so i really cant start with a new RPG or a strategy game. I basically need something that is good and short. Something i can start and complete during the day tomorrow. I know there are other threads, but i really am in a rush here and i don't think any of those is a request as specific as this [​IMG]

    As for the genre, i can pretty much play anything as long as its fun.

    So, one more time, a game that is

    1.Good
    2.Relatively short

    I will check the topic in the morning and hope my laptop battery will last long enough [​IMG]

    Thank you!

    While i'm still here, i have to add...

    It doesnt have to be extremely short. I mean, i will have the entire day to complete it so it can be up to 6-7, even 8 hours long. I do have a replacement battery for the ds, so that wont be a problem.

    Try the Anno games and Theme Park, they're strategy games but they'll easily eat through 6 hours, and it's not like you have to continue playing them once you're personally finished with them. You don't really need to "complete" a game, just have fun with it.

    Check out Air Traffic Chaos, which is a game in which you take the role of an Controller and guide planes to land.
    Also try Glory Days 2, which is hard to describe but it's like a 2D wargame. Has a relatively short storyline that goes for about 3 hours, and the skirmish mode is oodles of fun.
    Also Geometry Wars is a good game which if you don't get too involved with would last you that long, or longer. Lots of different stages and customization.

    As for making your battery last longer, make sure you take out (if you have one) your Slot-2 card, as it will drain the battery faster. (I'm pretty sure this is accurate, I remember they were testing it on the CycloDS forums.)

    Oh yeah, Rocket Slime and Mario Bros are great choices. Good one, Yasha. I always overlook the mainstream titles. [​IMG]

    Yeah another good one is Metal Slug, love that game. Just looking through mine now, I would also try:
    Gardening/Cooking Mama - Great little minigame fests.
    Mario Kart - Great for a few races.
    Meteos - It's a weird but awesome puzzle game, line up the blocks with the right colours to blast into space.
    Picross - Sort of like sudoku with squares. Very fun.

    Ok, turns out the weather was nice so i ended up barely touching my DS again. Instead i went a fail mission to gather some chestnuts (its the season). Turns out they didnt really grow much this year. To think i walked for 15kms for something im actually alergic to...

    Anyway, thanks for the replies. I'll make sure to use them for next time.

    The Phoenix Wright games, Sonic Rush titles, Peggle, Mario Kart, Spiderman: Web of Shadows (highly recommended but really hard) and possibly Bangai-O Spirits.

    EDIT: Damn. Should have finished the topic before posting.
