    hi friends,
    as I am almost finished with picross I am looking for a new puzzle game.

    please post your favorite puzzle game here or recommend some.

    I am looking forward to your replies.

    take care

    p.s.: what I also really liked on GBA was Kuru Kuru Kururin. but I do not think there is a game like it for nds.

    What about a puzzle game like Puzzle Quest, I found that pretty decent.

    The beach.
    I really liked Professor Layton.
    That's more story-based, though.

    7 wonders of the Ancient World, my fav Gem type game.

    Super Collapse 3, several times better than Tetris in the action catageory.

    Word Jong, if you want a thinking challenge game.

    I like Picross too. But am currently playing and recommend Puzzle Quest, the RPG element gives a twist to the game

    Assuming you go for games with lots of levels, Polarium or Prism Light the Way might be worth looking into. And I've heard good things about Neves, haven't got around to trying it yet.

    Sadly the closest you'll get to Kururin on the DS is probably Monkey Ball (weak link I know but hey, it's got a maze [​IMG] ).

    - Lode Runner, my favorite. Championship Lode Runner is not for everybody, took me months to beat it.
    - Illust logic & colorful logic, is another "picross" and I love it.
    - Slitherlink is amazing.
    - Loopop Cube Loop * Salad DS.
    - Exit DS.
    - Neves.
    - Bangai-O spirits, I think I can call it a puzzle.

    3 Hudson games in a row [​IMG] but I canĀ“t forgive them bc of Millon DS [​IMG]

    Meteos is the best puzzle game on the DS by far [​IMG]

    If you liked Kuru Kuru Kururin, you might like DK Jungle Climber on the DS...
    It's not the same, but similar at least.

    I have tried Metoes, Magnetic, Puzzle Quest, Super Collapse and other gem type games. I just can not get any fun out of placing 3 or 4 gems of the same colour in a row ;(

    but I will definitely give jungle climber a try.
