Well, I'm not gonna argue with you even though I disagree.
I do think that you should buy Bomberman Blitz. It's really fun, and the wifi works well be warned- there are a lot of players with japenese characters in there names that are really good, but quit if you win

Out of all the Dsiware games I have, (which is like 20 of them) I would have to say the best one is Bomberman Blitz.

Out of all the DSiware Games I have, (which is like 20 of them) I would have to say the best one is the Electroplankton series.
Pop island is a close second, though.

Out of all the Dsiware games I have, (which is like 14 of them, plus Flipnote and browser) I would have to say the best one is it depends on what type of game you like; most of them are good at what they do.

Out of the 10 DSiWare games that I own, Thorium Wars is the best. With MvDK and Army Defender being runner-ups.

Out of the 30 or so DSiWare games that I own, I'd say the best are Bejeweled Twist, Trajectile and Pop Island.

Exactly.

Well my DSi should be arriving on Monday and I've been trying to think of some DSiWare to get in addition to the preloaded ones (I got the Mario bundle DSi). I've finally narrowed it down to a 1800 point purchase.

Dragon Quest Wars
Art Style: BOXLIFE (It was hard to just pick one Art Style, they all look so good!)
Art Academy: First Semester

I figure that plus the Mario games will keep me entertained for awhile. :]

I might as well round it out to 2000 points and get a card. BTW does it have to be a Nintendo Points card or will a Wii Points card work too? It's hard to track down the ones labeled as Nintendo Points. I could always whip out my debit card but I figure this makes life easier. Sometimes Nintendo doesn't like my debit card, they seem to prefer credit cards... :/

Anyhow, what should the remaining 200 points be used on?

just another day...

Percentful

@bluecat A wii points card is just an old version of a nintendo points card, so it will still work.
I think that you should either spend the last 200 on myNotebook, or an electroplankton [sun-animalcule, beatness, luminarrow, or hanenbow].

Just let it happen.

Birdman

Army Defender is amazing for a 200 point game. Robot Rescue comes in as a close second, with Electroplankton Beatnes, Pro Putt Domo and Luminarrow filling out the rest for my top 5 200 point DsiWare games.

Exactly.

for 200 points I would recommend Paper Airplane Chase (or Paper Plane in Europe) it's a fun little game and good for short play times although you could end up playing it for an hour! Although a lot of people seem to like Army Defender. Sorry to say I've never played it.

go to www.virtualhamgames.com for great original independent games, a help service, and reviews for our games.

Pyoro (aka Bird & Beans) and Paper Airplane Chase were good when they came out, but with meatier experiences like Robot Rescue and Army Defender out there now they're kind of obsolete. Try myNotebook, an electroplankton or one of the other two titles I mentioned above for great 200 point games.

Exactly.

While myNotebook looks neat and all, I'm not sure how often I'd use it. And after watching some videos of it in action, it kinda feels like something that should have just come with the DSi. :/

Electroplankton looks interesting, but there are so many to choose from. @[email protected]

I have 200 points left, what should I get/wait for? I already have Army Defender.

wont be on here anymore

KnucklesSonic8

Pro-Putt Domo?

Also, to anyone who's wondering how to spend 500 points, please give Pop Island and/or DQ Wars a chance.

I agree with Odnetnin. The AI is impossible on even normal. I tried twice and went back to easy. Easy is fun to play against because they aren't impossible but they can beat you in a few hands. I can't imagine Hard difficulty. the AI difficulty is the only big issue I found in UNO, but that can be solved by playing it on easy so don't shut it down just because of the AI. Plenty of options to select from too. Sorry to say I haven't played Thorium Wars, Rayman or Dragon's Lair, but I heard Thorium Wars gets repetitive.

gameloft did a wonderful job with the AI. also playing agienst them in hard mode was super rewarding. i also like unlocking backgrounds and decks over time personily i love it for the turnomant mode. and AI does not cheet they mostly will keep on skiping you or give you draw 10's. and after a while i finally beat uno on hard in turnomant and yes i do have a life.....

This is ground control to major Tom, you've really made the grade. And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

@bluecat WELL, I am the #1 electroplankton fan, so I'll try to help. This is for everyone else trying to decide, also.
ELECTROPLANKTON
Trapy: on this one, you draw a line to make a trapy[a certain type of electroplankton] follow it. There are 7 trapys, wich means seven lines. When you draw a line, the trapy follows it at the same rate you drew it. If the line goes to the right, the trapy makes high pitched noises as it follows it. If the line goes to the left, the trapy makes low-pitched noises following it. It's pretty fun, but I would not get this one if you had to choose.
Hanenbow: On this one, you have trees have leaves, and you have tadpole-like electroplankton called hanenbow shooting up out of the water the trees are in [might sound confusing, but it's not]. When the hanenbow hit the leaves, they make a noise. Different parts of the leaves make different pitched noises. The hanenbow bounce of the leaves depending on the angle the leave is at, and the angle the hanenbow hit it from [yes, it does use actual physics]. There are 4 different tree combinations for you to play with. It's definitely one of the more fun electroplanktons, and it is definitely one to consider.
Luminarrow: In this electroplankton, you have a 6 x 6 grid of arrows, and 4 electroplanktons called luminarrows. When you touch a luminarrow, it starts moving along the arrows, going whatever direction the arrow is pointing. Every time a luminarrow passes over an arrow, the arrow makes a sound. Each arrow has a different assigned pitch when a luminarrow passes over it. Each luminarrow moves at a different rate, and each luminarrow has a different sound when passing over arrows. You can change the direction the arrows are pointing by touching them. This is also one of the better electroplanktons, and it's fun to play with. Definitely one to consider.
Sun-Animalcule: In this game, youm have a blank colorful screen. Where ever you touch it, a tiny electroplankton called a sun-animalcule appears. Each sun-animalcule makes noises over time [in a rythym], and the pitch method is similiar to Trapy [left is low pitched, right is high]. After about five minutes, the colors on-screen change to reflect a different time of day. When the screen is dark and it is "night", instead of sun-shaped sun-animalcules appearing, moon shaped Falcatos appear, which make a different sound. This is also a fun electroplankton, and I would reccomend it, though not as high as Luminarrow or Hanenbow.
Rec-Rec: In this game, you have 4 fish-like electroplanktons called Rec-Recs swimming across the screen. If you tap on a Rec-Rec, the next time it swims across the screen the microphone will star recording your voice [or whatever it is you are recording]. There's not much else to it, but you can use the up and down pads on the d-pad to change the backround track. This is definitely NOT one of the better electroplanktons, and is not worth it [unless you are an electroplankton fanatic like me, which you should be ]
Nanocarp: In this electroplankton, there are 16 small electroplanktons called Nanocarps on the screen. If you tap the screen, a small shockwave in the shape of a circle spreads out, causing the nanocarps to make a noise if they are hit. If you make a noise into the microphone [or press select if you aren't in a place where noise is a good idea], the nanocarps will form a shape or formation. Pressing different directions on the D-pad make a shockwave in a line go from one side of the screen to the other, causing the nanocarps to make different noises. This one is pretty fun, but not as good as Hanenbow or Luminarrow.
Lumiloop: In this electroplankton, there are 5 O-shaped electroplanktons called lumiloops on the screen. If you hold down your stylus on them and make circles with it, the lumiloops will start to spin, making hypnotic lovely sounds. If you spin all five at once, it makes a very pleasing noise, and is great for soothing. Spinning them clockwise makes a different noise from spinning counterclockwise. There are 3 different sets of Lumiloops, with each set being a group of 5 electroplanktons. Each set has lumiloops that make different sounds. This electroplankton game is fun, but not as good as Hanenbow, Luminarrow, or sun-animalcule.
Marine-Crystals: In this electroplankton, there are many snowflake-like electroplanktons, Marine-Crystals, in a grid pattern, or making a shape. If you touch a Marine-Crystal, it makes a sound very similiar to a piano key. Each Marine-Crystal makes a different pitched note, and all the electroplanktons switch places as you touch them. There are 4 different sets of Marine-Crystals. This one would be more enjoyable if the Marine-Crystals didn't move, but alas, they do. It's not quite as good as sun animalcule, but it's about as fun as nanocarp.
Beatness: in this one, you have 5 electroplanktons, each with a head segment, a tail segment, and 8 small body segments in-between the head and tail. In the backround, there is a classic nintendo game music playing. Every time you touch a segment, it makes a sound, which repeats after 8 beats. There are 4 classic nintendo songs to choose from, with each song having it's own set of sounds. This is definitely one of the better electroplanktons, tying with hanenbow, and luminarrow.
Varvoice: On this electroplankton, you have a tear-drop shaped creature called a varvoice. When you touch the varvoice, the mic starts recording, just like in Rec-Rec. After it has finished recording, whatever was recorded starts playing back repeatedly. There are many different shapes along the bottom of the screen, and when you touch one, the recording will be changed in some way. You can also clear the recording. This electroplankton is sort of like a simple version of the DSi sound app, and is thus not worth it [once again, unless you are an electroplankton fanatic like me ]
Here is the electroplanktons in order of greatness:
1. Hanenbow
2. Luminarrow
3. Beatness
4. Sun-Animalcule
5. Marine-Crystals
6. Nanocarp
7. Trapy
8.Lumiloop
9. Rec-Rec
10. Varvoice

Just so everyone knows, the names were changed since the original cartridge game. They are still very similiar, so don't worry.
Here is a video showing them all in action.

And here is the electroplanktons first impressions thread Electroplankton FTW!
I hope this helps, and check out the NL reviews of all the electroplanktons for more input!
DISCLAIMER-THINGY I tried to write all these without being biased, but I can't tell from my point of view how un-biased these are. I strongly suggest checking out the NL reviews, or trying the Electroplankton impressions thread to get more opinions on the matter.

I'm saying you have to accept two users of an internet forum opine that the AI in UNO is ridiculously hard, and Gameloft did not do "a wonderful job." Two users of an internet forum also opine that the AI does in fact cheat. Maybe you're an UNO master, because I play it (the IRL card game) pretty regularly and playing it on DSiWare against CPUs is maybe 40 times harder. It's not like I suck or anything.
