5 DS Games You Should Give a Chance

The Nintendo DS has a terrific game library, with something to satisfy just about anyone. However, in spite of the wide selection of games the DS offers, people frequently seem to recommend the same few DS games over and over again. Here's a list of 5 underrated DS games that are worth checking out:

1. Avalon Code

This terrific little RPG boasts great graphics and really interesting gameplay. Your character is given a book that they can use to record any person, monster, plant, or weapon in. You're able to combine and manipulate the codes of what you record to do all sorts of cool things, like cure diseases or imbue a weapon with powers. It has a high replay value as well. If you're looking for a new DS RPG, you may want to pick this one up.

2. Theresia

This strange and creepy survival horror game will appeal to fans of classic adventure games with its Myst like levels of exploration. The traps within the game can be frustrating at times, but the way the game's story is paced is masterful and genuinely frightening. If you're okay with a lot of backtracking or checking FAQs, this is a good buy.

3. Time Hollow

Time Hollow is a point and click adventure game with an interesting concept behind it. Using your DS stylus, your character is able to travel through portals in time to do things like observe past events or recover items. This title isn't for gamers who prefer more open gameplay, but those who don't mind a linear path with easily get swept up in Time Hollow's story.

4. Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure

Fans of both puzzle games and platformers may have found their perfect game in this title. Henry Hatsworth takes full advantage of the DS' two screens, featuring a platform game on the top screen and puzzle games on the bottom one. Juggling back and forth between the two different styles of play keeps the game fresh and will keep you engaged for hours upon hours.

5. Big Bang Mini 

This gorgeous shoot-em-up game uses something a little different to take on bad guys- gamers shoot fireworks to attack their enemies. The art design on Big Bang Mini is incredible, and fans of titles like Space Invaders will be blown away by the gameplay. Best of all, this title is less than $20, making it a great way to have fun on a budget.
