I couldn't find a compatibility list for the DS port anywhere (no wiki page either?), but getting Broken Sword to run on it seems unlikely to me (screen resolution?)

There's a compatibility list on the page of ScummVM DS (http://scummvm.drunkencoders.com/), just search for "Which games are compatible with ScummVM on the DS".

Broken Sword is nowhere listed there, so there's the chance that it isn't supported at all.

Good idea!

Also agentq postet this
Broken Sword on the other hand uses 640x480, and there isn't a way to scale this image down to 256x192 and have the game still playable. I also suspect that it won't run with 4Mb of RAM.
Over in this thread.

There was an official port of Broken Sword to the GBA. It was great, and you should still be able to find it around somewhere. Ebay perhaps.
