I read that a new Monkey Island is soon to be on Wii Ware so I though I'd get back into Point and Click games but this time on the DS.

What is the best DS Point and Click DS game?

I have tried Professor Layton and The Curious Village but did not like this.  To me it was a lot of puzzles, mostly average ones, built around an unrelated story. I was thinking about Another Code (Trace Memory in the US) but it's a good few years old now................ any ideas? It would be good if the puzzles related to the story.

I can tell you right now, avoid the Myst and Syberia ports like the plague.  They are very poorly done.  Broken Sword: Directors' Cut is very good.  Trace Memory is short, but excellent.  Trace Memory's developer, Cing, also did Hotel Dusk: Room 215 which is fantastic.  Although most critics disliked them for being short and often very obtuse, I liked the Touch Detective games.  They played more like western style graphic adventures than Japanese style visual novels. 

Among the Japanese style graphics adventures, the Phoenix Wright/Apollo Justice games are good.  Although critics lambased it, I liked Lifesigns: Surgical Unit, but that one could get difficult with the interactive surgeries.  Time Hollow wasn't bad, but lacked gameplay.  I liked the more story oriented Lux-Pain more than I should have.

Yep, if you get once, get Trace Memory.
