9) Rooms

Rooms is a simple but fun Ninetndo DSi mystery game that has an intricate 'sliding puzzle' style with a unique take. As you complete the mysterious tale you must re-arrange the rooms to allow you to pass. This might sound easy, but this game soon becomes challenging, and you will need to keep an eye out for various items to help you on your quest!

Rooms might be a little too puzzle based for some mystery DSi game fans, since it is based much more closely on puzzle solving than mystery solving!

8) Scooby Doo and the Spooky Swamp

This brilliant game took me back to my childhood sa you explore and adventure through an in depth Scooby Doo Nintendo DSi mystery game. This game definitely involves more action than what you would find in a game like Rooms, which helps keep things interesting. 

As Scooby Doo and the gang are called in for yet another mystery, they will have to figure out the spooky goings on in a mysterious swamp, and you will and have to display some quick thinking as well as some quick button mashing to find out just what is happening.

7) Murder in Venice DSi Mystery Game

Murder in Venice is a fantastic mystery game that requires you to solve numerous puzzles as well as the overall mystery.  What I love about Murder in Venice is that you will occasionally switch from present day Venice, to the 1960s cold war Venice, where you will have to delve deep in to the past to solve this intriguing spy thriller.

You will have to keep an eye out for clues and information as you progress through this game, since there are plenty of hidden objects and clues that can help you untangle this intoxicating mystery DSi game.

6) Professor Layton and the Curious Village

Professor Layton and the Curious Village is easily one of the best Nintendo DSi mystery games out there. In Professor Layton and the Curious Village the Professor and luke must solve an incredible riddle which conceals the fortune of a deceased baron.

I love how even the village people in this top mystery DSi game speak in riddles, giving you hints towards the eventual solution as you progress through the puzzles, while dealing with plenty of other tasks which will occupy your time!

5) Pokémon Mystery Dungeon

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon is a selection of three games, which let you explore dungeons, time or air,(depending on the game you buy). What I love about this fantastic mystery DSi game is that unlike other pokémon games, which have a fixed storline, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon randomly generates each dungeon you enter, so you will never have to grind or play the same map twice!

The unique value of each adventure you take means that you will constantly be faced with new layouts and challenges to keep things interesting. Rather than grinding for hours on one spot, you will slowly build your collection by not only figuring out the main mysterious storyline, but also exploring the randomised dungeons!

4) Vampire Moon: Mystery Of The Hidden Sun

This a the perfect children's mystery DSi game. It is not too hard for adults to figure out, but younger children will have hours of fun as they solve the puzzle of an inexplicably long eclipse, and the mysterious disappearances of people around the world.

This fantastic puzzle leads you through a mysterious case, filled with vampire lore, intriguing puzzles, and an exciting ending!

Vampire Moon adds a huge amount of gameplay in to a short space of time, in fact the only complaint about htis game seems to be that people wish they could have played it for longer!

3) Chronicles Of Mystery: The Secret Tree of Life

Chronicles of Mystery the Secret Tree of Life is one game that had to make it in to the top three of my best Nintendo DSi Mystery Games list. From puzzles to hidden objects, you will have to work hard to solve the intricate storyline which permeates every pore of this brilliant DSi mystery game.

Join the race for the secret of Immortality in the Chronicles of Mystery DS as you search for the fabled Tree of Life!

Ghost Trick: Phontom Detective

The cartoony graphics of Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective deceive you in how you first perceive this game. However this stunningly imaginative Nintendo DSi mystery game puts you in the shoes of a corpse, that's right, you, the main character are dead.  As a ghost you must explore the world around you, possessing objects to help you unravel the mystery of who killed you.

This might seem a little depressing, but the cartoon graphics and fast paced music help keep this challenging but simple mystery DSi game rolling. This is quite possible the most unique and fun DSi mystery game I have ever played!

Professor Layton and the Unwound Future Best DSi Game

1) Professor Layton and the Unwound Future

Professor Layton and the Unwound Future makes it to the top spot of my best Nintendo DSi Mystery games list because not only does it have fantastic puzzles and plots, but the entire story line is also one big mystery.  I won't go in to any detail, because I really do not want to give away what happens in this great game, but trust me, the twists and turns are amazingly well written.

Professor Layton and the Unwound Future is a game that has obviously had a huge amount of effort put in to it, and it definitely pays off. Even the hints system is well crafted to make the game suitable to all ages, without making it too easy!

If that was not enough to convince you, Professor Layton and the Unwound Future can be regularly updated via WiFi to give you more puzzles and adventure!
