    I find it much easier to hold the DS 'sideways' for games like Puzzle Planet League, Brain Age, and Hotel Dusk than to hold it the usual way. Plus, it often feels like that lets them make better use of the two screens.

    So... what other 'sideways-supporting' games are there? I know the new Ninja Gaiden is going to be like that, and there are parts of The Rub Rabbits that are sideways, too. But I can't think of anything else.

    Nothing else matters. You've already touched on the only game to concern yourself with. [​IMG]

    Seriously though (and I actually was serious, though), I can't really think of too many games that utilize the DS in that way, but it certainly seems like a nice option. Dragon Sword really has revealed how well an action game can work in that perspective. I hope we see more games not only of that caliber, but that also use the DS book-style.

    EDIT: I just remember Planet Puzzle League. A fun puzzler, to be sure.

    On the Namco Museum DS game, you can set the option to change to sideways mode [​IMG]

    I prefer sideway games because it shows that the developer is confident of its control scheme and develop the game with the touchscreen in mind. I wished Picross would have a sideways mode though.

    Ya, as far as I know you have mentioned all of them, except that Marvel Trading Card game(which seemed like rubbish to me).
