    My all time favourite game on the DS is New Super Mario Bros. I've played it through so many times.
    Even though it's so good I can't find any similar games...

    Tips please...? [​IMG]

    Well, as for platformers, there really isn't anything quite like Mario. But you could try The Legendary Starfy, N+ or something Kirby.

    Giana Sisters DS is the next best thing. One of the rare instances where a remake is better than the original.

    Maybe Yoshi's island? It's pretty close in terms of gameplay.

    Kirby's quite a good platformer...try some of those
    BTW it should be "are there any?" not "is there any?"

    Get Braid. It's an absolutely fantastic game with an interesting twist and borrows heavily from Mario gameplay with a time element. It's available on PC, 360 and I believe PS3.

    I wouldn't call it similar, but N+ is one sweet platformer. One of the DS titles that surprised me the most in terms of how much fun I had with it.
