I'm waiting for some games for the 3DS to release. Until then I was hoping for something to play. I've heard good things about the Ace Attorney games. But I was hoping for some others.

@Vinny_Says: I meant for the DS. I guess I should have stated that I recently picked up a 3DS and am using it to play some DS games.

I'm pretty sure Broken sword was ported to the DS

I guess 999 sort of counts as a point-and-click? Hotel Dusk was pretty good as well.

There are a few, the best ones are of the Japanese visual novel-style rather than PC adventures of old. Not nearly as many old PC adventures got ported to the DS as I would have liked.

Check out 999, Hotel Dusk, and the Ace Attorney series. Those were my favorites. Broken Sword was released for the DS, but it's not quite the same without voice acting.

Hotel Dusk is great. I don't know if this qualifies as point-and-click, but the Professor Layton series is a must play.

This. Even if it didn't count, this.

999 and Ghost Trick are good choices.
 
You could also give Flower, Sun, and Rain a try, even though it mostly consists of math puzzles.
