Some good Nintendo DS puzzle/type games?

What good current games have you found? My most favorite game is a 3D Picross game called Rittai Picross and only in Japanese. Not limited to true puzzle games, but pretty much with the following characteristics: Untimed, involving thinking and/or logic, figuring out stuff.

Things like Tetris also, or CrossworDS, and such.

Sudoku Grid Master, CrossworDS and Picross are still my go to puzzle games even after a year or two or three of being out. The puzzle game I want more than anything is Scribblenauts with the new Professor Layton a close second.

The first Professor Layton game is incredible. Like darkside, I am very much looking forward to the sequel, as well as Scribblenauts.

Those of you with a DSi should definitely check out Nintendo's 'Art Style: PiCTOBiTS' on DSiWare.

Here are my favorite DS puzzle games:

1. Planet Puzzle League
2. Art Style: PiCTOBiTS (DSiWare)
3. Soul Bubbles
4. Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis
5. Tetris DS
6. Professor Layton and the Curious Village
7. Brain Age 1/2 Sudoku
8. Picross DS
9. Meteos
10. CrossworDS

Most Anticipated:
1. Scribblenauts (Q4 2009)
2. Picross 3D (Announced at E3! But release date TBD.)
3. Professor Layton and The Diabolic Box (8-24-09)
4. Space Bust-A-Move (7-27-09)

Better import some more games while you figure out how to get out of your $70,000 debt.

Henry Hatsworth is a puzzle/adventure game in one. Pretty challenging.

Re: Some good Nintendo DS puzzle/type games?

Why not pay off some debt instead of buying more games?
