Special powers/weapons/moves/features: The DS system is held like a book, which
allows characters on the screens to face left or right for more realistic conversations. The
unique controls let even novices enjoy themselves. The unique hand-drawn character
portraits and their animations are in black and white, making them exceedingly
distinctive and able stand out, graphically speaking, from the rest of the game. In the
tradition of Trace Memory, the use of the DS to solve riddles is alive and well in Hotel
Dusk: Room 215.
