Seems to me like this kind of app is better suited for the DSi XL and being played directly with the finger(s)

For 200 Points it's a great piece of software.

Kafei, maybe you could get two of those "finger stylus" and give it a try? I own one and it helps with several frantic games.

I own a DS Phat, which came with those thumbpads for finger controls. Though i never used it i could dig it up for those kind of games, true =).

This will be a insta-purchase for me, I love keyboards.. and since my mum sold mine, I'll just use a virtual one on my DSi. Smilie

It's a shame that the DS doesn't have a multi-touch screen.
