Hugo Smits said Flipper 2 would most likely be 500 points so I say wait for that. I'm incredibly excited and it sounds like it will have plenty of replay ability.

@Qwikman - There's a third Castle Conqueror coming next week, so if you're considering getting the original or Revolution, I'd wait until the next one is reviewed just in case it is somehow miles better than the other two.

Exactly.

Alright I have 500 points sitting on my account and would like to do something with it. I don't necessarily NEED to buy a new game (as I still have loads of games to finish), but I wouldn't mind a new DSiWare game, as most of them that I have have already been beaten or I have grown a bit stale. So I'm thinking I do one of the following:

A.) Buy Castle Conqueror (Always wanted to play a DS RTS, but I'm worried it'll be too easy and/or too short.)
B.) Buy Alphabounce (Heard it has a great amount of content, but worried it'll be too simple or repetitive.)
C.) Save the points and hope that Flipper 2 or Amoebattle is only 500 points.

Any opinions or thoughts on what I should do?

castle conqueor game first one last around 6 hours (not counting all the upgrades) second one took me about 8 hours but i did a lot of grinding... the thrid one coming out thursday in the states is a totally different game (turn based it seems) but it says its 20 hours long

i like the 2nd castle game more then the first one (maybe cause i played the 2nd one then played the first one)
probally by getting the 3rd one come thursday...

alphabounce is a VERY LONG game but it gets boring very quickly (at least for me)

I would say if you want RTS maybe Castle part 2.. if your looking at an RPG/RTS game I would wait till thursday for part 3

i would stay away from alphabounce unless you like that sort of game and really LIKE IT . its very long but nothing to keep interest

Hey there,

I am looking for a good tower defense game to waste my time on my 3DS :). Any advice about which one I should pick on the eShop (meaning DSiWare)?

I have already played Plants Vs. Zombies on PC. I would love to play that one again but maybe it's time for me to move on to another one :).

Thanks for your help!

Glory Days only has three stages but it's a lot of fun and can get very hectic.

Alphabounce was the first DSiWare game I bought from eShop for my 3DS and I'm wishing that I'd never done that. I like Arkanoid and Jardinains! but this was too boring even with all the power-ups. Some of the power-ups were really bad. For example: I hate Pilot-power-up and I'm always avoiding it as it really kills all the fun as you can't move your paddle when you take it. You can't die when you get it but is that fun? You can't get all the other power-ups when it just follows the ball and you just stare the screen for some seconds to finally be able to play again.
I quit playing the game after completing about 20 stages. It's just too boring.

@guy_om - About the only TD game on DSiWare I can recommend to you (as I don't recommend games I haven't played and you've already played PvZ) is Starship Defense. It's definitely worth checking out and is loaded with personality.

Exactly.

Alright thanks for your feedback, guys (though this comment is pretty late). Looks like I won't be getting Alphabounce, then, and I'll probably wait and see when Flipper 2 is coming out. If it is not released in a few weeks, I think I'll buy Castle Conqueror or Castle Conqueror Heroes. (I kinda want an RTS more than a turn-based game right now so I might just go with the original despite Heroes getting a higher score.)

Depends which one you're interested in. The art style games really vary. Pictobits is the most popular. It's a spin on a match three game like tetris, except here you match four. You should take a look at the games and see which one interests you. If none do I'll gladly recommend Dark Void Zero. Great controls, level designs, and great music! I've replayed it a lot.

  • Snapdots (Nintendo / D3 Enterprise) - A very unique Picross-style puzzle game
  • Metal Torrent (Nintendo) - A vertical-scrolling shooter where enemy kills produce cubes that multiply your score. Very short, but oh so addictive.
  • Dark Void Zero (Capcom) - A "long-lost" NES version of the HD game, plays like Mega Man and Metroid put together.
  • Zelda: Four Swords (Nintendo) - You all know what this is.
  • Tetris Party Live - An online-enabled Tetris game that's also on the Wii. But with Tetris Axis out, this game is irrelevant.

Any SHMUP fan absolutely MUST get 99Bullets. Those on YouTube dissing it over graphics (knowing nothing about what vector is) must be ignored. This is one of the most unique games I have ever played. I only hope they will release a port to Steam (which they said is potential) to fix framerate issues and add more content.

@Ramses: Get Mighty Flip Champs first (obviously) then go for it. It's a great game, but definitely the weakest out of the Mighty games.

@xj0462: In this order of priority (assuming you may have one or two)

Aura-Aura Climber/Escapee Go!
10 Second Run
Army Defender
Spotto

Bought a few games that I can recommend now:

GloryDays Tactical Defense
(very nice tower defense game at lowest cost with great graphics and great sound effects!)

Fieldrunners
(Tower defense also, "free to create map", nice soundeffects, nice graphics, high replay value)

Flipper 2
(One-button-game with nice graphics and soundeffects, replay value high bc of randomized castle mode)

Cosmos x2
(Sidescrolling shooter with good graphics and sounds, ideal for a short burst of shooting something)

Trailblaze
(puzzle game in which you have to burn trash with the burning tail of your spaceship, its big fun, try it or have a look on the trailer, its really very nice)

Game I cant recommend:
Save the turtles
(rushed through the 32 level in 2hrs...I dont get this game. Is it to scratch your touchscreen?)

Steamworld - Tower Defense
(even on easy too difficult, high velocity TD game it seems, way too fast for me).

Grammar errors? We could use the german language instead of the english one of course - do you dare? ;)
