    Everyone likes small games because you can fit lots of them on your card and they have a habit of sticking around as it never seems worth getting rid of them to save such a small amount of space. I was thinking about the much-hyped N+ and its tiny 64mbit size and it got me wondering...

    Which games pack a large amount of awesome into a small amount of bytes?
    Nothing above 16mb (128mbits) trimmed please!

    The list so far:

    7 N+

    6 42 All-Time Classics / Clubhouse Games

    5 Tetris DS
    5 Video Games Hero (Homebrew)

    4 Super Dodgeball Brawlers

    3 Game & Watch Collection
    3 Neves

    2 Bangai-O Spirits
    2 Daigasso Band Brothers
    2 Magnetica
    2 Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer
    2 Mr. Slime
    2 New York Times Crosswords
    2 Pac-Pix
    2 Super Mario 64 DS
    2 Tingle no Balloon Fight
    2 Zoo Keeper (preferably the EU version)

    1 Anno 1701
    1 Big Brain Academy
    1 Bomberman
    1 Brain Age Training
    1 Clever! (German)
    1 Commando: Steel Disaster
    1 Etrian Odyssey
    1 Glory Days 2
    1 Korg DS-10
    1 LOL (Multiplayer Only)
    1 Luxor: Pharoah's Challenge
    1 Namco Museum DS
    1 Nanostray
    1 Orcs & Elves
    1 Polarium
    1 Powder 1.07 (Homebrew)
    1 Prism: Light the Way
    1 Puzzlemaniak (Homebrew)
    1 Puzzle Quest
    1 Setsuzoku no Puzzle (Homebrew)
    1 Touch Darts
    1 Trauma Center



    EDIT: Updated 01/09 - Thanks everyone.

    If the original romsize is above 128mbit untrimmed, could you please put the size it trims to in your post. [​IMG]

    daigasso band brothers(zipped up it's 4.7MB, didn't bother to download, unpack, and trim)
    lol, not great but certainly small(less than 1MB zipped)
    if you want homebrew, VideoGameHero is about 8MB i think.

    US versions unless otherwise noted.

    Club House Games (10MB trimmed)
    Game & Watch Collection (JP only, 1MB trimmed)
    Namco Museum DS (10MB trimmed)
    Neves (5MB trimmed)
    The New York Times Crosswords (13MB trimmed)
    Polarium (6MB trimmed)
    Super Mario 64 DS (14MB trimmed)
    Tetris DS (13MB trimmed)
    Zoo Keeper (US 4MB trimmed, EU 6MB trimmed)*

    *I note Zoo Keeper's EU version because the US version has a nonworking sleep mode; the EU version sleeps without issue.

    Eek. Zoo Keeper doesn't freeze in sleep mode, it just doesn't sleep. The backlight turns off, but the screens are still on, the music keeps running, and unless you paused it before closing it, the time continues to run down. It's entirely playable, just sleep mode won't save you much battery because all it does is shut off the backlight.
