Touchscreen games like Project Rub or others using it?

    So close and yet so far away.
    I've suddenly realised that I've never played a proper touchscreen game like Project Rub/Feel the Magic, where you use the stylus to play the game (with the exception of Go! Go! Cosmo Cops, which I don't count as it is a peculiar platformer).

    Can anyone recommend me other games which rely heavily/solely on the touchscreen in the sense that you don't merely "click" with the stylus, but actually do stuff? A single game or a game with minigames, either will do. I'd love if you could post why do you think the game is good or write some comment about it as well . [​IMG]

    the world ends with you:
    stylus is used for movement, menu's, and the majority of attacks are controlled by applying specific stylus movements to the screen.

    trace memory/another code: two memories:
    stylus is used for movement, menu's, searching, and using various items/objects.

    Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games. Most of the Minigames do Rely on the Touchscreen only.

    Oh yeah, since TWEWY is a RPG I didn't think of that way, probably because I was thinking of all those various minigame type of games. I've almost finished it, I'm in the third week. [​IMG]

    I was thinking of a game more along of the minigame type, like where you use the stylus in a creative way, like when fighting in TWEWY or when doing minigames in Super Mario 64 or Project Rub. So in that sense Trace Memory or Pokemon Ranger (because you just circle the Pokemon) isn't exactly what I'm looking for. But thanks! [​IMG]

    And I forgot that I did play both Olympic games, but after a while they're not so interesting.

    @ron975: I thought that you just click on buttons on the lower screen which execute the attacks, right? So they're just a "click" type of touchscreen games, unless the second SW is different.

    @The Pi: I still haven't finished the first one, but I'm curious what other games are out there that use the stylus in a similar fun way. [​IMG] Though I heard it's worse than the first one, did you try it - what do you think?

    Well it's not as good as the first one but it's still a good game (and if you going to download it, why not give it try?)

    Yeah. It's a 2D game with horrible stylus controls. Don't even bother looking at screenshots, it's too crap.

    Almost forgot these!
    Rhythm Heaven, Elite Beat Agents, And Even Ninja Gaiden- Sorta, you use your stylus to walk and draw symbols when attacking.

    Okay, thanks!

    Cooking/other Mama sounds interesting, which one would you recommend? [​IMG]

    Well, Cooking Mama 1 has the most recipes, Cooking Mama 2 has the best recipes, and Cooking Mama 3 has updated gameplay mechanics. Crafting Mama hasn't been dumped yet (though looks awesome), and Gardening Mama gets really stale and boring unless you want to spend 3 hours keeping all of your plants alive before you quit.

    It depends on what you're looking for, though. I, personally, always keep all 3 Cooking Mama games on my R4 (and ban Gardening Mama from my house), but that's subject to change once Crafting Mama's had a scene release.

    People say that 3 has a different "engine" for minigames and is not as addicting as 2, though it has more modes and improved stuff. What do you think? I'm wondering which one to go for first. [​IMG]

    Well, I'd say start with the first Cooking Mama, since that's the one most people start with... There are a lot of recipes and it can get you used to how loud the games are, since it's the quietest of the 3 games (Seriously, I was playing 3 in my room with the volume all the way up and when I finished one step of a recipe the jingle played and was so loud my sister complained, and I was in my room with the door closed while she was in her room with the door closed)...

    But blah... 3's got this minigame tacked on where you make Cooking Mama's daughter go shopping or something. Weird. I never play that part of the game.

    2 feels kind of lacking, too... But whatever.

    Loudness isn't a problem here fortunately. [​IMG] I think I'll go for CM2 first, since it's easier then to compare it with CM 1 or 3. [​IMG]
