Any DS games you feel have been overlooked and are actually pretty decent games?

I was just discussing this on msn, and I feel Pac Pix is a really nice little game from well over a year ago, yet I see it mentioned hardly anywhere.



Also, although simple and not exactly original, Zoo Keeper DS is a great time-waisting puzzle game if you're bored.

Kirby Canvas Curse



A great game whcih seemed to just fade away into nothing pretty quickly
Why do a LOT of DS games do that?

I thought of Kirby: Canvas Curse when I saw this thread. Slink beat me to it

Nanostray


It got pretty lukewarm reviews but I love it. Closest thing to Axelay on DS yet. It's got a great soundtrack and uses the touchscreen features in a subtle way.

I also recently played Phoenix Wright and regret not picking it up much, much earlier. I think it did okay commercially, but I'd still say it's overlooked by a lot of people.

Phoenix Wright is good because the script and characters are excellent. It made me laugh out loud (genuine LAWLS) so many times. No amount of reviews or trailers will convince you, but trust me, it's really good.

*goes to ebay*

Update: Purchased Was going to buy it a while back but never got round to it. I regret it now, as it's getting harder to find... cost me 15 for it brand new.

Well, if you like cute, innovative games, Id say buy it. You basically draw the outline of pacman, and it comes to life, then you guide it around with lines, draw arrows which fire at the ghosts etc. I also love the designs of the ghosts

Hotel Dusk is very good. As is Nanostray, one of the first DS games I bought alongside Canvas Curse and Warioware.

Too ruddy difficult for me though. Only managed to beat the final boss once.

I bought loads of DS games in the first year or so of owning one. But have barely finished 1 of them.

I can't think of any overlooked games i own but i can tell you Rayman DS is an awful port of Rayman 2 for the N64. It should be avoided.
