It's as if the console was MADE for this type of game. (I fervently hope TTG will eventually make a couple of games for it. Particularly Sam & Max).
I've noticed a surprisingly large number of games which I have suspected to be Adventure games (far more than I would have expected for a console so new in such a short time and in this day and age) come out for it. (Also, have you ever noticed that no adventures have a message on the back of the box saying "This is an Adventure Game"?
Far more than I can actually afford to buy, since the recession. I've been making a list, mentally, of the games to look out for and buy when I have some cash together, but its hard. (For one thing the games on the shelves are never in the same place twice, especially if some have been purchased).
So I thought I'd look up a list of DS adventure titles online and go through it for the ones I'm most interested in. Sadly most of the lists aren't just for adventure games, but various different types of action games. Soon it becomes hard to tell which is which.
If anybody knows of an adventure game fan site that has a DS section or even a DS fansite that has a [proper] adventure game section then PLEASElet me know. Until then, here's a list of games collated from this thread :)
Original DS Titles;
Hotel Dusk: Room 215
Touch Detective 1 & 2 (For some reason called 'Mystery Detective', here in the UK. The bundled games are referred to as 'Touch Detective' but I've only seen these available online).
The 'Ace Attorney' series (Not entirely certain this is an adventure game but most adventure players recommend it).
Secret Files: Tunguska (At first I thought the dialogue in this game was terrible. Then, when I accounted for the language barrier (I discovered that the game was made in germany), I realised that some of the weird lines were actually jokes).
Another Code (I'm told that the Wii and DS versions were originally intended for release on both systems so I'm not going to regard this as a ported title).
CSI: Dark Motives
Miami Law (Haven't seen this anywhere online or in shops. I assume it's real as it was mentioned by TTG's own Emily and that it's probably just not yet available in the UK).
Flower, Sun, and Rain (Something of an 'interactive novel', from what I gather).
Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery Of The Mummy
Probably Adventure Games (if there's anybody who can verify any of these that would be great :D);
Cate West: The Vanishing Files (Not yet released)
Mystery Case Files: Millionheir
Nancy Drew: The Deadly Secret of Olde World Park
Nancy Drew: The Hidden Staircase (All 3 of these Nancy Drew titles appear to be from differant publishers).
Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars Director's Cut (also on Wii)
Syberia (just the first one),
Undercover : Dual Motives
Thanks in advance :D
