There are two ways to type words with stylus of Nintendo DS:

DoubleScott is a compilation of 17 classic text adveture game by Scott Adam, which contains the following game titles:
:'''Grafiti mode''': directly draw the letters on the screen, according to the PA-Grafiti alphabet (cf grafiti.jpg)

* Adventureland.
