A Kappa's Trail
Airace
Alphabounce
Aura-Aura Climber
Cave Story
Chronos Twins
Crystal Monsters
Dark Void Zero
DodoGo!
Escapee Go!

Quite a large list of games. Each game above has scored at least a 7 on Nintendo Life (with a few exceptions for 6's). Its been a great year for DSiWare but what's the best? My vote easily goes for Shantae: Risky's Revenge. What do you think? What was the best piece of software out on DSiWare this year?

Well it really comes down to Cave Story and Shantae, and Cave Story takes the cake for me. One of the greatest games of all time.

Cave Story is the best DSiWare game hands down and I say that not having bought it on DSiWare. It's a little unfair though since it's a port of a PC game that everyone already knew was good. :P

Disregarding Cave Story, I personally think DSiWare GOTY 2010 is a toss-up between Shantae: RR and X-Scape. They are some of the highest quality experiences you can get on the the service.

Cave Story is the best. I LOVE IT. But excluding that then it's definately Flashlight or Discolight. Maybe a tie between the two. I would have bought then both for 1500 poitns each :O

Dark Void Zero appeals to me because it is simply a blast to the past. The game is a combination of Metroid and jetpack action with all the bells and whistles included in 8-Bit games of old. The cinematic boss battles are satisfying, and they always leave a grin of victory on your face. I strongly recommend this game over some of the best DSiWare Games of the Year, just because the heart and time Capcom put into this game always shines through. :)

My favorites:
Aura-Aura Climber
Cave Story
Dark Void Zero
Maestro! Green Groove
Rytmik
Shantae: Risky's Revenge
X-Scape

I'm not very far in cave story I think (sand plain) but right now it's very good and hard even on easy mode so if I picked on that would be it.

BUY SOMETHIN WILL YA!

I wanna say Cave Story, but a new game beats an enhanced port every time. Shantae: Risky's Revenge gets my vote.

wait, I don't have a DSi...

Cave Story is the only DSiWare game to move me to tears (in a good way), so I think I'll go with that. ;)

I guess I'll Vote for Dark Void.

I havn't downloaded much DSiware games, mostly because of the 3DS is coming soon

Need more time to think it over. But, we've also got three download weeks left. When will voting end?

Exactly.

Ok so thus far we have:
Cave Story: 5
Dark Void Zero: 3
Shantae: 3

Somehow I thought it might go this way....

Dang, I forgot about Dark Void Zero. I've been meaning to download that one, but since I review DSiWare I rarely have extra points.

Well the year isn't over yet but for me cave story hands down is the moat fun I've had on the dsi all year. That includes ds games for me. The best 10 dollars I've spent in a long time. Shantae is a distant second.

X-scape. Hands down that is the best DSiware game that I've ever played.

Personally, I hated the Cave Story demo on WiiWare, so Shantae (I'd say it's the overall DS game of the year).
