Answer
Gday Callum,

Unfortunitly if the DS cart is damaged it might not be able to be fixed.

I would firstly attempt to clean the contacts of the game with nail polish remover or cleaning alcohol with a qtip, occasionally these contacts get dirty due to too many sticky fingers touching them.

If this does not work, I would contact who every you purchased the game and attempt to get a replacement.  (Most Bricks and Mortar Stores should)

You could also follow thru the Nintendo replacement program.

Since this game was published by Nintendo you might be able to get a replacement for it.

Hope this helps.
