Hello everyone.

Excuse my bad english please. I'm French and quite young.
Well, I'll soon have 20 Euros for my e shop account and i want to buy some good games for the summer.

I allready have:
-Mario's Ciment Factory
-Donkey Kong Jr
-Paper Plane
-Photo Dojo (Pictures Dojo ? )
-Aura-Aura
-Pokedex 3D
-Radar Mission
-Double Dragon
-Super Mario Land
-Donkey Kong
-Excitebike

Any ideas ?

I would consider Tetris a must-have personally. I'm having a lot of fun battling people online, although some of them are just insanely good. And I've spent a lot of time trying to beat level 4 of the computer battle.

Hey guys! Can anyone recommend a AAA title that has came out within the last couple of months. The newest title I've bought was Glory Days and I've been trying to keep up with the DSiware since the, but due to all the "meh" releases it kinda hard to stay interested. No puzzlers though, but an action puzzler would be ok.

FARM FRENZY is coming to the states on july 7 for 500.... if you like those types of games

If you're gonna get a farm game, get QuickPick Farmer. It's not AAA, but frenetically fun, only 200 points, and made by a one-man indie dev who has an account on NL.

Oh man, Farm Frenzy is awesome. I have it on the PSP Minis, and love the game to death.

But then I am a time management fan. Still. Farm Frenzy is the best of those. (and it's not a "farming game" like the previous poster suggests. At all)

It may be different for other platforms, but I have Farm Frenzy for Android and personally, it isn't a game I'd even remotely categorize as close to being awesome. Normally I wouldn't say anything, but after reading so many positive posts..., it's so meh, it makes me sick, the thought of anyone wasting their hard earned money on it. ...but different strokes for different folks, here's a video so you can make up your own mind.

does that mean like Rollercoaster Tycoon or something like that for example? I like managing things too, makes me kind of wonder if I should download supermarket mania.

Wow is that a terrible version of the game. Where's the happy music? The cute animation? The personality? It's far more entertaining on the PSP as a mini.

That is pretty much proof of how music and presentation are important to games.

No, those are simulation games. Time management is a genre where you've got multiple things to do, and need to multi-task to get them all completed within a set time limit, make sure customers are happy etc etc. There's nothing deep about these games, but like tower defence games they can be simple, charming and addictive.

Since the DSiWare version is likely a stripped down port of the retail cart, I've found video of the DS retail release.

Honestly, regardless of graphics, it doesn't seem very interesting to me, but that's just my opinion. It's good to know the Android version wasn't a proper representation of Farm Frenzy though, it sucked.

Ok, Shantae or Minis March Again?
MMA is cheaper and it seems really fun. Shantae looks good too but its a bit pricey.

Alright guys I've already got quite a lot of DSiware but I'm looking for a new game or two so you can just throw any suggestions out there.

The stuff I'm looking for:
any price but cheaper is better
can be played in quick bursts and can be taken at your own pace
preferably has lots of content and not much repetitiveness

Any suggestions are appreciated!

Frenzic is 200 points and can be played in quick bursts (although I have a hard time stopping myself from playing just one game). I guess it is sort of repetitive, but repetitive like Tetris is repetitive: it's always the same simple gameplay, but every game is different because the pieces are randomized.

It depends. If you prefer platformers over games where you don't control the characters I'd recommend Shantae. In my opinion though Shantae is a little bit too short for the asking price. Plus it's not very challenging at all up until the end. With MMA you get new levels by online plus some levels can get tough. I've only seen videos of that game though so I'm probably not the best person to be saying that.

Personally, I think there are better games to get than Frenzic. Here are some suggestions, Oregano:
Fire Panic, Spotto, Flight Control, Number Battle, Big Bass Arcade, DodoGo! Robo, G.G. Series SUPER HERO OGRE.

Thanks for the suggestion guys. I'm not really into fishing games(BBA isn't out in europe anyway) and I already have a few of those games.... and I don't really want any more puzzle games. It might sound weird but I want a game where I control some form of character.

Yup, and Paperfield as well.

Thanks. I chose MMA and its pretty fun!
4-5 is pretty tough though
