The best of the best 500 pointers are:

Trajectile
Art Style: PiCTOBiTS
Art Style: Base 10
Art Style: BOXLIFE
Pop Island
Pinball Pulse: The Ancients Beckon
Starship Defense

Any one of those are wonderful purchases!

@labrat - I have no idea what you already own from the 500 point range, but here are my favorite 500 pointers in no real order:
AlphaBounce
A Kappa's Trail
Bejeweled Twist
Art Style: BASE 10
Castle Conqueror
Dark Void Zero
Maestro! Green Groove
Number Battle
Planet Puzzle League Express
Starship Defense
Trajectile

Those are my favorite 500 pointers, anyway. There are bound to be a few not everyone agrees upon in there...

Exactly.

does nintendo ever have sale on their games like sony does on the psn games

down to 600 pts now (before adding any other cards) been looking around and really dont see much good at 200 pts. that are sort of long and have replay vaule. unless im overlooking some

also that number battle game anyone know if there is a TRUE cart game that is like that... i would be more then happy to pay 30 or 40 bucks for a game like that if it had ALOT of puzzles (download has like 30) be neat if they would release a cart based game with 300 maps or so

:) i was wondering why it always said I can not find the planets on alphabounce... you need to play the levels over the planets to find them LOL i was just flying all over the maps trying to collect everything... right now i would have to say that is my best 500 pt game Tied with Crystal monsters....

also for people who have Dairojo! Samurai Defenders how many levels are there i know it says each map have 99 zones of people coming at you but how many levels (maps are their)

if i knew it was Very long i would think about buying it BUT at 800 pts that is a very high buy with many questions about the game

other then that any good 200 pt buys (doubtful they will be long and replay vaule)

seems i found an answer
as the half-dozen different stages to choose from are given these arbitrary star ratings that don't make much immediate sense. only 6 stages in Dairojo! Samurai Defenders guess i keep to my tower defence psp games i have

Ehhh... This might be repetitive, if it is so, I'm sorry. I'm deciding whether I should get either Shantae, or Cave Story. Now, I've already played through the PC version, but I've never touched Shantae in my life. Love platformers, though. I can't decide because even though I've already have the PC version, there's a ton of features and new additions in the DSiware version (apparently), and... well, it's portable. :/ But I've also heard Shantae is really awesome as well. What's your opinion?

Nope! The only DSi features I think are Time Attack (of the hell level) and Jukebox (music player). There's also three difficulties (does the PC version have that?) The Wii version has optional graphics, music, and modes such as boss and curly mode.

I like Cave Story more, but Shantae is fun to play through if you don't want Cave Story.

Oh, thanks. Guess I'll get Shantae then, because I've already played through the original Cave Story. :P The PC version only has one difficulty level, but I'm not interested in trying out the hard one. (I've already tried it on the Wiiware demo and I don't think I have the skills to get through the game with that little hp, save points or no.) Guess I'll get it sometime later. >>

I just purchased Flipper on DsiWare. Here's a rundown on this awesome game.

Flipper: 500 POINTS - 3D Pixelated Puzzle Platformer (whew. lots of p's)
A lovely tale of friendship that begins with a boy. He just received a new goldfish, and after admiring it for a few minutes, he falls into bed. Late in the night, a shadowy figure emerges from the darkness and steals his beloved pet. When the boy wakes up in the morning, he cries tears of pain and leaps at the chance to save his pet.
Flipper is a 3D platformer that utilizes the critically acclaimed voxel engine, which allows players to alter every single pixel of the environment using power-ups. There are a LOT of those in Flipper, including a dynamite capsule (explosions!), a restore capsule (repairing!), and a platform creator (build!). Also included is a point-and-click interface, used to place power-ups and make the controls a lot more accurate. There are many levels and worlds, but the overall game is short. A replay factor is the inclusion of Stars, the challenging reward each player gets after unearthing one of these. This is the biggest part of the game, and the most fun. OVERALL RATING 8.9/10

Arcade Hoops Basketball. It is really inexpensive - an oldie but a goody. I've played it for about four hours so far (off and on for two weeks) and I'm still digging it :).

THE SELLER (card game) 500 pts ...... VERY VERY TEMPTED ON THIS ONE
You are a down and out big time boss in the small time since your company was forced into bankruptcy by an underhand competitor that stooped lower than even you would dare.
Of course revenge is a dish best served over a drink at the high class gentleman’s club. This is where the game will take place to rebuild your fortune and show your competitor who really is boss.
This is a witty card game with a few simple rules to test your intelligence.
Starting with a small amount of resources, money and action cards, try to use action cards to step cunningly forward until you have sold all your resources to others.
Set strategies in motion to increase your resources in value as one of the ways to win. But don’t forget your ultimate goal is to introduce your competitors to bankruptcy.

@slidecage - This thread is strictly to help other NL users help other users choose DSiWare games to buy. There's a DSiWare predictions thread buried somewhere within this forum for discussions like this, and you can feel free to revive it at any time. If any game you've found to be coming soon really interests you that much, you can always make a thread solely dedicated to said game. Just be sure to use proper punctuation in the thread title (at a minimum), as bad grammar/punctuation really irritates me a lot.
