The Nintendo DS/DS Lite continues to dominate the handheld market and it's no surprise considering how many different types of games there are for it. Hotel Dusk Room 215 came out under the radar earlier this year, but this adventure game should rotate to the top of the "games to check out" list. Holding the DS sideways like a book, this game plays out like an old time detective movie with a plotline filled with lies, betrayals, murder and kidnapping-and it's up to gamers to solve the mystery. The overall art style adds to that pulp fiction feel with its cool sketch animation, dynamic lighting and film style-camera angles.

The game begins as main character Kyle Hyde, a former detective from New York, arrives in L.A. and checks into the rundown Hotel Dusk for the night. Kyle's life is about to change as he finds himself in embroiled in a 30-year-old murder mystery that is tied to Room 215. Not only that, Room 215 holds an extra special secret-rumor has it, the room can grant wishes. Now, it's up to gamers, playing as Kyle, to investigate the various hotel mysteries and solve this 30-year-old crime. The storyline of the game uses a branching technique to give gamers more options when it comes to questioning other game characters. It's best to remember that all actions have consequences, and if gamers aggressively question the wrong person, it could get Kyle thrown out of the hotel for good and seal the Hotel's dark mystery forever. The point-and-click-style of gameplay means anyone can pick this up and get started. A great way to pass the time on any long trips planned for this summer holiday.
