    I'd love to try out a game which is controlled by the stylus, however I can't really remember any good ones. I'd love to try out a game in which you control a character or just do something on the screen, like a platformer or anything else that is fun, though I'm not too keen on puzzles - but if you know one which is really fun, don't be afraid and recommend please. Any ideas? Thanks! [​IMG]

    If you like stabbing and slashing and swiping with a stylus then try Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword.

    Platformer / Rhythm game. It's not bad - UK exclusive, though.

    Go Go Cosmo Cops (I believe it's called) is probably my favorite stylus-controlled platformer (if you can call it that). If you like creative use of the stylus, I highly recommend the game. Grossly overlooked.

    stylus controlled games. hmmm, Zelda and TWEWY seem to fit the description nicely. there's also scribblenauts.

    Legend of Zelda spirit tracks and phantom hour glass. Ninja Gaiden dragon sword is also pretty good.

    Yes, Kirby Canvas Curse is quite the nifty game. The stylus control is versatile, and I like the remixed Kirby tunes. [​IMG]

    Yes,that game is nifty as well, but be warned, the stylus control is less-than-stellar. I can already envision Maxwell running and jumping haphazardly, knocking down the boxes I placed, and falling off cliffs, all with that infinitely blank smile on his face. [​IMG]

    Both Legend of Zelda games, Rhythm Heaven, and Cooking Mama if you're into cooking games. xD

    hmmm, come to think of it, TWEWY could actually be labeled "DS-contolled" because it is certainly unique. d-pad, shoulder buttons, touch and mic. but most of it is touch-controlled, lol. *mumbles incoherently to self*

    The Legend of Zelda, Ninja Gaiden, Kirby: Canvass Curse, and Big Bang Mini are the best ones in my opinion.

    I've already got Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword, I just wanted something different which would be more carefree, which Metroid isn't as well. Plus it uses the the D-pad and it's a typical shooter - it's not really a game to peacefully enjoy, but the "Ack! That corner! And over there! Shoot them all! No time to stop!" kind of game [​IMG].Speaking of D-pads, I thought Zelda uses one as well, and isn't entirely controlled by the stylus? Though I do plan on trying it out someday. By the way, how exactly do you control Kai and Zero in Elebits? I saw a video and it looked interesting, so I'm interested what exactly do you do.

    I've gotten the Cosmo Cops, thanks for the tip, will try it out. [​IMG]

    Kirby kind of didn't appeal to me, I tried it a long time ago, while Big Bang Mini seems again like a game where you have to be on the edge so that you don't lose - is it like that, or is it just the trailer?

    Mmm, I don't want to spoil the TV series by playing the game, usually games based on movies and TV series aren't that good.

    And I love TWEWY, that was the first game I probably played on my DS and in case it wasn't, it was one of the biggest reasons for getting it.

    Exit DS seems too much puzzle-y like and less scribble on the screen type.

    And Scribblenauts! Oh yes, will try out the second one probably once it comes out! [​IMG]

    Thanks for all the replies though!! [​IMG]

    Kirby - Canvas Curse.

    Anyone who doesn't like this game is dead inside.

    Well, at least Super Scribblenauts has D-pad controls.

    Kirby Canvas Curse.

    The bestest game EVAR.
