You move the blocks while controlling him. You move with the d-pad, climb when you want to move onto a higher platform automatically, and push blocks with the face buttons. You can only climb one block at a time.

Thanks! I might pick this up, but I guess I should read a few more reviews on it before I make a decision. Anyone like this game?

I'm pretty okay.

I know there's a few people here who really love Precipice. I don't have it myself, though, not yet :3

Does Guitar Rock Tour use the shoulder buttons? I'm interested in that game but my shoulder buttons are broken :|

The guitar parts don't.

That said, this is a terrible game and I do not recommend it. It has a small track list of midi music (literally) to play, and while the gameplay itself is functional, the game has Gameloft's usual corner cutting when it comes to presentation.

To put it another way - if you own, or have ever played a Guitar Hero or Rock Band game, there's absolutely no reason to jump back 20 years to playing music games with midi music.

I absolutely love it, and it's one of the few DSiWare games that I keep coming back to over and over and over again.

It's a very minimalistic game, simple (but very classy) visuals, basic controls, and basic gameplay - but it's also quite challenging to get high scores.

It's good, imo, but Pictobits blows it out of the competition.

I couldnt' disagree more. Other than Intersect, Pictobits is the weakest of the Art Style games across both DSi and WiiWare, imo. It's still a good game, but it's needlessly difficult - the limited screen space means you have very little room to work with - imagine tetris, but only half a "tube" - so with little advance projection you need to deal with, sometimes, some very complex shapes.

That and you need to be a retro Nintendo fan to properly appreciate the music and graphical aesthetics. I'm not, so much, so much of the game's charm is lost on me. The futuristic vibe of precipice, or the psychodelic colours or rotohex, or the watery chill vibe or aquite are far more appealing to me.

So be warned - like all art style games, pictopict isn't for everyone.

@WaltzElf- I couldn't agree with you more. I started to hate PictoBits because it got SOO unnecisarily hard.

You do have to start doing things unlogically and annoyingly, but it's not terrible in my view.

Yes, I don't think any of the Art Style games are terrible, and I think they are so subjective that anyone's list of favourites will be different.

It's almost at the bottom of my list, but other people put it at #1 - it really depends what kind of game you're looking for when buying art style games.

I never really thought castle of magic looked that good.Is it an ok game?

guitar rock tour can use the +pad & the xyba buttons to play the drums instead of the shoulder buttons.
And its not THAT bad as waltz is making it to look, it's actually quite decent.

Meowph, that's right!

Not really. It plays ok, but is still a cheap game, clearly produced for mobile phones or low-cost downloads (like everything Gameloft, really). Rayman's the better-quality platformer on the DSiWare, and Photo Face stealer (whatever it's called) is better for the younguns.

I need an opinion on something. I only have 800 points left, and I want to know if Touch Solitaire is worth it. I have a version of Klondike Solitaire on my click-wheel iPod, so do you think I should get it if I have the iPod version? I'm not looking to get anything that's already out (Next week will be tough, between Dark Void Zero and Starship Defense), so I just need an opinion on this.

Exactly.

Not really. Touch Solitare is Solitare - no more, no less, and assuming you carry your iPod with you, you've already got ready access to it.

Or, perhaps, you might be a massive fan of Spider solitare, and then it's probably worth it.

It's decent if you've never played a Guitar Hero or Rock Band game before, and you're still stuck in an era where midi music is acceptable for a music-based game.

If this game was released 15 years ago, it would be awesome. But then we discovered what is generally known as an .mp3, and there is no excuse for a music game (you know, with music being the most important thing in the game), to have horrible music.

I am actually very fond of midi music, and i never said it was a precious jewel of a engine, i said it was decent (and actually a good time waster). Being a download with 15 songs, id rather have 15 "archaic" decent midi songs for 500 points (its not like they couldnt have added some more songs, being midi) than 5 crappy mp3 for 800 points just because they where to heavy to fit in the 500 category.
I have played these music games you mentioned before too and i can say this game will stay in my dsi menu, unlike some other high rated games.

its just a game~

You do realise that you are in the minority when you say you like midi music? "It's decent" from a midi music fan doesn't help any if you're like me and can't stand midi music. Like all Gameloft's other games (except Uno, which is admittedly decent), I haven't touched it since I moved it to my SD card slot.

Now, between the two of us, the OP has an idea for the game. If he likes midi music, he'll like the game. If not, it's a wasted 500 points.
