    I generally fall in and out of love with my DS.. I am pretty up to date with most games, but its been 3-4 months since I have downloaded anything new.

    I keep an eye out on sites like IGN and GameSpy for good good games, but they rarely seem to review DS titles.

    The last game that I got was Professor Layton as its right up my street.. But before (and since) that I have nothing.

    I am going on holiday in a few weeks and wonder if I have missed any 'classics' which I could take with me.. To give you an idea, I like puzzles, brain games, etc over 'action' or 'arcade' style games.. But I specifically dislike RPGs and to some extent RTS games.

    The last 2 games that I played lots was Professor Layton and Pic-cross so that gives you an idea of what I like.. Have I missed anything else note worthy that will give me something to do when I am away.

    I have looked at the release list and highlighted anyhting which 'sounds' like it might be OK.. But I just wondered if someone has any outright recommendations.

    I don't think you missed anything from dr. layton on. Maybe you'd like Neves, but it's rather dull.

    However, let me recommend a game based on the ones you said you'd like: Honeycomb Beat. I think it's a mostly overlooked good puzzle game.

    Alright jon to start off you should always try Ace attorney series *or phoenix wright* and apollo justice.
    I would also recommand call of duty 4 and time aces for just quick fun. Hotel dusk room 215 would also be in your list. You can always try Final fantasy ring of fate as it's more action/advanture.
    hope this helps.

    Ahh.. I think that mentioning Professor Layton has confused you.. Its not the 'story' that I like, its just the puzzles. The adventry/story part was beyond dull. I just kept hitting the screen to get past all the dialogue.

    Even though I said I hate RPG and RTS games, more than any of these are these 'adventure/story' type games!

    I think that Ace Attorney, Pheonix Wright and Hotel Dusk are all these kind of cames are utimately they are not what I am looking for at all.

    My fault.. I should have clarified what I ment...

    Ideally, games like Tetris, Picross, Solitair are the only sort of games I play.

    I guess I should also ask whether there are any big releases coming? I am not actually going away for 5 weeks, so are there any HUGE releases coming in that time? Ideally, what would be nice would be a WarioWare type game, but I am not expecting it!

    Cheers

    Possibly check out Meteos, Planet Puzzle League, and Puzzle Quest. All are puzzle games, Puzzle Quest adds RPG to the Bejeweled gameplay (odddd sounding i know, but it works).

    I mean, they're all older, but they may fill your void [​IMG]

    That truly is what I thought before I played Ace Attorney lol... but look at me now, biggest fan of the series =D
    I thought "URGH! A text-based lawyer-em-up? WTF"
    And then I learned that Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney is a really unique game...

    Of course, you might've already played it [​IMG]

    I'm into similar kinds of games so I'll second Prism, it kept my sister quiet for hours [​IMG]
    And Polarium, always forget that one but if the DS version's like the GBA one then it's worth a try.

    Atm I keep coming back to The Sun Crossword Challenge, the difficulty is a little hit and miss but I'm crap at crosswords and managing to survive it. [​IMG]

    That Sliverlink or whatever it's called is really highly rated... I never got the hang of it though.

    Geometry Wars:Galaxies is a decent shooter you should look into it(if you haven't already) also if you like puzzles you can try out 7 Wonders of the Ancient World(again,if you haven't already).

    It's been mentioned before by several people in this forum, buting knowing your tastes, here are the 5 games you need to get:

    1. Planet Puzzle League (the best, most addictive tetris-like puzzle game out there)
    2. Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords (Also a great puzzle game, but with a great story in the same spirit as Dr Layton)
    3. Meteos (creative puzzle game that takes the teris-like puzzle game mold and expounds upon it)
    4. Prism: Light (most unique puzzle solving game there is. It's really unlike anything available, and totally fun)
    5. Pogo Island (little-known game filled with different types of word puzzles, riddles, anagrams, matchstick puzzles, etc.)


    You will love all 5 of these

    I second that - I only just found this one myself. 400 levels on each of the 3 game types, and damn some are hard. I love Picross etc. as well, so you should love this one as well.
