Best DS Games for the Adult Puzzle/Casual Gamer

Brian L., CPA "Puzzle Addict"
The list author says: "This is a list of Nintendo DS games that I believe to be the best for the casual adult gamer. I love puzzle games as well as others, but there are a lot of really bad games out there on which I have wasted a lot of money. I hope that you will take a look at this listing before buying as this comes from MUCH trial and ERROR. Thanks."
Professor Layton and the Curious Village - Nintendo DS
Professor Layton and the Curious Village - Nintendo DS
"Perhaps the best puzzle game I have ever played. The game gets progressively harder as you go and the puzzles are no joke. I really had to do some thinking when I played. Additionally, it was nearly impossible to put down oince I started playing. Buy it."
Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir
Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir
"This is perhaps one of the best puzzle games for the DS. Big Fish Games created this exclusively for the DS and so it is tailored to the functionality of the system. Many of the other games are simploy ports from the PC to the DS and something is lost in translation. Mystery Case Files Millionheir really provided me many hours of fun."
Big Brain Academy
Big Brain Academy
"This is perhaps one of the best "brain games" that was released. It measures the theoretical weight of your brain as you improve on the challenges it offers. The games are fun and challenging. It is better on the Wii, but this version is fantastic."
Brain Voyage - Nintendo DS
Brain Voyage - Nintendo DS
"This was a surprisingly fun game. It includes games like Mastermind, poker square, and others that I was not expecting. Well worth the $20 price tag."
Midnight Play Pack - Nintendo DS
Midnight Play Pack - Nintendo DS
"This includes Poker, Arkanoid, solitaire, pool, and bowling. Each is fun and offers challenges in that you earn money to advance to higher levels. Solitaire is really fun on this one. There are only six types, but earning money to move on provides motivation compared to the Solitaire Overload that is simply a bunch of solitaire games with no real goal."
Crosswords DS
Crosswords DS
"Speaks for itself. A must own for any crossword lover"
Touchmaster - Nintendo DS
Touchmaster - Nintendo DS
"This one is really fun. It includes the Touchmaster games from the older touch screen systems in bars. The sequal is not nearly as good. I STRONGLY recommend this one."
Clubhouse Games - Nintendo DS
Clubhouse Games - Nintendo DS
"FANTASTIC! Perhaps the best game out there for the money. There are over 40 different board, puzzle, and card games on this title. I love it."
Prism - Nintendo DS
Prism - Nintendo DS
"This game is a true puzzle challenge. The object is to bounce colored beams of light off of mirrors and prisms in order to complete the levels. It is really fun. The PC version is also a must own."
New Super Mario Bros
New Super Mario Bros
"This one takes me back. It is very similar to Super Mario Brothers 3 for the NES. This is perhaps one of the best Mario games I have ever played. I highly recommend it."
Picross 3D - Nintendo DS
Picross 3D - Nintendo DS
"Perhaps the most engaging puzzle game released for the DS to date. I got at least 12 hours of gameplay out of this."
WarioWare D.I.Y. - Nintendo DS
