For all those having trouble choosing between DSiWare games, this is the thread for you! Ask for recommendations here.
if you're trying to choose between a DSiWare game and something else, though, the Universal Recommendations Thread may be what you're looking for. :3

Cool I have 2000 points, (just bought ep beatnes yesterday). What should I get in dsiware?(I already have beatnes, mvsdkmma, mfc, pro putt domo, paper airplane, and that driving game)

I'd say get Dragon Quest Wars, it has a few minor quirks but in the end it really doesn't matter. It's simple fun and it's got online too. Check out Art Style games (Especially Pictobits, and the latest one seems good also but I haven't played it)

Get Pop Island and Bejeweled Twist. Those two are incredible.

Exactly.

If you like learning art (or learning in general) totally get Art Academy: First Semester. It's really great for making beautiful pieces of art... if you've never played Sudoku I so recommend Sudoku Student. It's really fun! Mario VS Donkey Kong: Minis March Again! is also an amazing puzzle game, and Pro Putt Domo is fun for the golfer (and Domo-lover) in you. Out of the Electroplankton series, Hanenbow is the only one I still have. I've deleted the rest... they're not fun at all.

DigiDrive is the BEST Art Style game so far.

I'm back with a shiny new 3DS, yay!

The Electroplankton series is great for music lovers. Bomberman Blitz is a great Wifi game.

Just let it happen.

Ok I'll post the same thing I posted in the Universal thread (I will probably get more feedback about DSiWare here so please don't call me a double-poster)

For my future DSi for DSiWare I've already decided to get Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March again, Paper Airplane Chase, and Art Style: Boxlife, but don't know what to do with the rest 500 points. Don't care if it's casual or hardcore as long as it's not sudoku (Have Brain Age Cartridge) and must be 500 points.

EDIT: I just remembered I'm going to get Trajectile, but I might get two points cards for Christmas (I did last year) and I'll probably use it on DSiWare so recommend any point games please

Army Defender is probably the best 200 point game on DSiWare currently. Other games I reccomend are Pop Island and Bejeweled Twist, both of which are 500 points.

Exactly.

The best way to spend 2000 DSi Points:
Thorium Wars (1000)- Really awesome shooter with great replayability, if you don't mind its high difficulty.
Mario vs. DK (800)- Great puzzle/action game that really makes you think and have good reflexes. Great Pick-up-n-Play-ability.
Army Defender (200)- Awesome and addicting arcade-like shooting game. Another great Pick-up-n-Play game.

These are the best of the DSiWare releases so far imo. As for 500 point games, there aren't any "Have-to-Have" ones as of now. Can't wait for Flipper, Dark Void Zero, and Mecho Wars.

Look through the reviews on this site. They are a good representation of whats good and whats not good on dsiware

UNO dsiware for some great online play is (800) along with one of the best multiplayer dsiware games is bomberman blitz (500) army defender (200) and for your puzzle game get pictobits (500)

I think that pop island is a have-to-have. It's really fun, and it could have easily been an 800 point game. MvDk 3 is pretty fun, and making levels is very entertaining. Pop+Solo is fun, but it's more of a game you play when waiting for a doctor's appointment or something-it gets boring pretty fast. Hot & Cold is fun, but the items you find for each location are pretty repetitive.

Just let it happen.

Are there people here that have Rayman and Castle Of Magic? I want one of those two platformers, but what is the best game?
I loved rayman 1 on the gameboy so i wanted that, but what do you people think?

I have 1500 points left and I'm deciding between 4 500 point games (none of the current 800 or 200 point games interest me that I don't have already). It's between these 4 :
Art Style: Aquia
Castle of Magic
Glow Artisan
Pinball Pulse

Please note my shoulder buttons tend to stick and I'll probably get another card for Trajectile, Flipper and others.

Exactly.

I have Digidrive and Pop Island. Blitz doesn't interest me much, and I'm looking for the best 3 out of Aquia, Glow Artisan, Castle of Magic and Pinball Pulse.

Exactly.

Aquia - Great game, but I can't recommend it. A lot of people find it too hard, even though it's an easy game. I got a lot of hours out of it, but nowadays I only use it to relax during a 15-minute break. And now I'm finding Dragon's Lair is more enjoyable for that.

Glow Artisan - There should be a full review here soon? Wait for that.

Castle of Magic - I haven't played this one either. I know it's a different style game, but I'd guess most people would like CoM slightly less than Pop Island.

Pinball Pulse - I think I might have over a hundred hours invested in this game. Reminds me of the Space Cadet pinball game that used to come with Windows. If you liked that at all, then you should love this. Only one table, but the Pandora's Box quest keeps it interesting. My main complaint is it's really crushing when you're trying to get millions of points per ball and then you just suddenly lose; at least the daily game is still fun, even though again you can lose so shortly it's crushing.

Overall, I can't really recommend any of these games unless you're a big fan of the genre. Aquia doesn't use shoulder buttons at all. Pinball Pulse is better with shoulder buttons, but I use left and A (or sometimes d-pad right instead of A). You tilt with the touchscreen, which is ineffective and a lot of people don't like it, but personally I think it makes the game more enjoyable when you get used to it.

Current favorite games:
Bejeweled Twist / Pop Island
Waiting for:
Flipper / Trajectile / Dark Void Zero / Touch Solitaire / BlazBlue DSiWare / Shantae RR

Pass on CoM, you have a lot of action games already on your waiting list. If you really really want another puzzle game, check out what people are saying about Glow Artisan; otherwise, I think Pinball Pulse shall give you a nice variety of games.

I haven't played Bejeweled, but from what I've heard about the PC version of Twist, if it's one of your favourite games then Aquia isn't going to offer anything innovative to you. But it's worth noting that the third Aquia game piece, the square, works in a similar way. You remove a four-piece square from the three-column tower, twist it around, and then put it back in the tower anywhere you want, creating match-threes; it's a lot of fun. My favourite is the second horizontal game piece, because it's the easiest if you don't want to think.
