    Hi all,

    Can anybody recommend any good puzzle games for the DS? I really enjoyed picross and picpic and also the Phoenix Wright series.

    Thanks,
    C

    Zookeeper is pretty good and addictive.

    As you liked Picross try Rittai picross, basically it's 3D picross.

    Also try out Hotel Dusk. It's like PW but at a slower pace and just as good.

    Can you run homebrew? If yes, Puzzle Maniak, whether no, Professor Layton, Puzzle Quest and Meteos, to say a few...

    I prefer a bit of action in my puzzle game, so I enjoyed both March of the Minis and Pet Alien. And of course, Puzzle Quest: CotW never gets old.

    I think you'd enjoy Prism: Light the Way. There's no timer or arcade craziness, to solve the levels you place pieces to redirect light beams. (and the graphics are adorable [​IMG] )

    And I'll second Professor Layton; there's a mystery storyline running in the background of it, so if you liked a story based game like Phoenix Wright it's not quite the same style but it'd be worth a look.

    Trioncube is a fun twist on Tetris that has a weird Japanese sensibility to it in English.

    Zookeeper I definitely second.

    Meteos is great but you should already have that.

    Puzzle League DS is great, since it's Tetris Attack/Puzzle de Pon.

    Lies, I fucking wish it was Tetris Attack. It's Tetris Attack with a gimped up difficulty system and awful '90s electronic visuals and audio and zero personality. They even dummied out the PDP stage for the international release, just to be dicks about it.

    Tetris DS is my favorite verion of tetris. "Puchi Puchi Virus" is great, "Colour Cross" is a good picross clone

    You have to try Professor Heinz Wolff's Gravity! So many challenges that are so fun. It's sorta like Professor Layton, but with a more simple concept. All in all, great game.
