    Away from you.
    I think the smallest is 16MB. You can try 4MB but I think they're all demos.

    I think you're confusing MB with GB.

    Most are 32-64MB. AFAIK, there is an 8MB one, and the rest are 16 and up. The largest that I am aware of is 256MB, and that is the Rock Band one.

    DS games, untrimmed and uncompressed, can be 8mbit, 16mbit, 32mbit and so on. Divide those by 8 to get the size in megabytes. Compressed, they're about the same size as they will be trimmed and that depends on how much actual data is in the game rather than just the size of the cart they put it on. Don't have my AK2 with me, but off the top of my head Neves is a good puzzle game which is tiny.

    The smallest good game I've come across is bomberman, it is 8MB untrimmed and if I remember correctly it is about 6MB trimmed. Korg 10 ds (not the dsi enhanced version) is even smaller, that one is about 1MB. The biggest roms are 512MB untrimmed and about 400MB trimmed, but all of these gargantuan ds games are Japanese ones.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    Try using this search on Advanscene.

    First select the NDS release list at the top.

    Under "Search for" choose "Region"

    Under "Sort by" choose "Size"

    Under "Find" search for "USA" and click "Search." It will return a list of all the US ROMs, sorted by size. You'll want to download anything 64Mbit (8MB) or smaller.

    You might be able to download some 128Mbit ROMs because when they're compressed they can be as small as 10MB, but there's no way of knowing for sure which ones compress that small just by looking at the database so you should stick with 64Mbit or less to be safe.

    Bear in mind that although there are some really cool small games, you may find you get more enjoyment out of one 20 meg game than 10 games of the size and quality of Elf Bowling. Don't make your decisions on what to use up your cap on on size alone.

    i'd rather put Medium size game, ie 32-64, there are tons of NDS roms with that size, and there are good amount of good quality, like Ace Attorney, N+, SPiderman WOS, picross, advance wars and Supermarios
