ScummVMDS v1.2.0 BETA-1
A new version of the ScummVM project has been released today. This is, of course, great news, but please note that this version has problems playing Nippon Safes. If you want to play this game, I reccommend you stick with 1.0.0 which you can download below. A new version with these problems fixed will be released in about a month.
* New games are supported as part of the stable build:
o Return to Zork
o Leather Goddesses of Phobos 2
o Cruise for a Corpse
ScummVM DS is a part of the ScummVM project. The ScummVM project is an attempt to re-engineer many classic point and click adventure games of the 80s and 90s to run on modern computer hardware. Technology has changed a lot since these games were written, and so ScummVM attempts to replicate the gameplay of the original games in exacting details, without any of the original code that the game ran on. ScummVM needs a copy of the original game, in order to take the graphics, sound, and scripts that made the game work. ScummVM is written in such a way that it can be 'ported' from one type of machine to another, and ScummVM DS is a port of ScummVM to the Nintendo DS handheld games console.
* Alows you to play many 80s and 90s era point and click adventure games on your Nintendo DS!
* The games play with full sound and save/load facilities, and most run at full speed, exactly as you remember them.
* Hugely customisable controls which made great use of the Nintendo DS touch screen
