I only have $2.47 left in my eShop account, and I hate leaving points laying around in my account. I really don't know exactly why, it just urks me. So I've been checking out some 200 point/$2.00 DSiWare, and these two titles caught my eye.

1) Escapee GO!

2) Penguin Patrol

Does anybody have any advice on which of these 200 point/$2.00 DSiWare titles I should invest in, or at least some insight into this matter?

I really enjoyed both of those games you mentioned, as they're both portable and have a certain retro charm to them. Escapee GO has a shorter campaign, but slightly more replayability, as you can replay the story mode or play through each level to beat your score. I think I favor Penguin Patrol a bit more, personally, as it has a bit more charm and a higher amount of levels. However, Penguin Patrol is more of a puzzle game than an action game, whereas Escapee GO is the opposite. So in the end, it mainly comes down to which genre you prefer.

Hope that helps. :)

I decided to overlook the 6/10 NLife awarded, "99 Seconds," and I downloaded that instead. So far, it seems like a really good game for only 200 points/$2.00. I've only been able to beat the very last score on the pre-programmed local leader board. Which was with a score just over 300,000. First place on the local leaderboard is a score of 1,000,000, and I don't see myself beating that score for a very longtime.

Wow, I have 3000 DSiWare points left over from last Christmas.... Any recommendations on games I should get so I can spend all the points down to a 0, I'm thinking X-Scape, Rayman, and maybe one other art style game ( not sure which one)' but that adds up to 2100 which means I can still buy 1 more 500 point game and 2 200 point games.

@Retro - I would definitely recommend X-Scape, but I'm not sure how the controls would feel after playing Kid Icarus: Uprising, though. I'm sure you'd be able to manage, though. For the rest of my recommendations, I'm going off the assumption that your Backloggery is accurate. For an Art Style game, I'd pick either Boxlife or DIGIDRIVE. I can't really recommend Rayman, since I don't own it, but about the only other 800 point games that may be worth it (imo) are Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again!, Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords and Go! Go! Kokopolo. For 200 points, I would definitely get Aura-Aura Climber and one of the following: Spotto!, Pop Island: Paperfield or GO Series: Undead Storm. For 500 points, I recommend (in no real order) AlphaBounce, Digger Dan & Kaboom, A Kappa's Trail, Number Battle, Starship Defense and Trajectile. Hope that helps you out.

Exactly.

Thanks for the recommendations Birdman. I already have Aura Aura Climber, Spotto!, and Paper field, but thanks for reminding me I have a few DSiWare games to add to my backloggery. I forgot about Go! Go! Kokopolp. It looks really fun. I heard it gets unfairly difficult and that worries me. Is it true?

@Retro - I can't really say atm. I only played up into the 4th World before I lost interest in the fall, and I only started trying to beat it again within the last few days and am only in the 3rd world right now. From what I've played, I wouldn't call it unfairly difficult, but right now it does require your full attention, so if you can't find the time to sit down alone and try to beat the game, it probably isn't for you.

Exactly.

I've recently included, "99 Bullets," into my eShop wishlist. After watching the eShop trailer, it seems like a really good game. I'm just wondering if there are any other NLife members who have played it and would feel comfortable recommending it.

Ok, so of the 200 point games I was still deciding on I'm going with Flip the Core and Go Series: Undead Storm. I may buy the second one twice. One for me and one for my brother. Objections? Something to replace the second copy of undead storm?
As of now the games I will spend my final points (3000) on are going to be:
X-Scape (800)
Go! Go! Kokopolo (800) (Also took into account Spirit Hunters like Morph mentioned, buy Nnnnoooo sure is taking a while with that one..)
Digger Dan & Kaboom (500)
One Artsyle game that isn't that diver or math one. So need help with that. Digidrive and Boxlife do seem nice, but which is more fun (or fast paced)? (500)
Flip the Core (200)
Go Series: Undead Storm (200) but with this one I'm thinking of cutting out one of the art style games so I can get a second one for my brother, since I hear the main draw is multiplayer. Would that be worth it, or would I have more fun with the other option? How are the controls?
Any good shmups for 500 on DSiWare besides Metal Torrent?
Thanks everybody!

Hmmm, actually my final list as of now is this:
X-Scape
Go! Go! Kokopolo
Little Red Riding Hood's Zmbie BBQ
Flip the Core
Go Series: Undead Storm x2
All adding up to 3000. So I decided to just not go with a 500 point game. I'd still like to hear how Undead Storm controls though. Is it Tank controls? Or are there 2 500 point games that would be better than Undead Storm?

Art Style Boxlife is awesome, and so is Digidrive! Also Starship Defense and Trajectile if you don't have those.

How many believe, "Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again!," is a reasonable choice for a Club Nintendo Elite Status Reward this year? Of course, I just downloaded, "Metroid II: Return of Samus," last week. I'm not too big on posters or playing cards, so I don't really find those two rewards very enticing. There's no way I'm accepting the calendar this year, and nobody else should either. Well, unless you only reached Gold status, and you've already downloaded all of the games on offer.

Mario vs DK is a good game, so I'd say it's worth it if you don't want any of the other rewards. You could probably sell your platinum reward for more than the $8 the game costs though, and being as there are two platinum rewards, a lot of people will probably be trying to snatch up the alternate reward on eBay.

Ha, I meant getting Undead Storm twice. :P Was asking if that's a good idea, for multiplayer.

I've 700 points left on my DSi that I'd like to redeem, I can get either a 200 points title and a 500 points title, or three 200 points titles. Preferably the former since there isn't much in the way of decent 200 point titles.
I'm not planning to put points on my DSi again since I've discovered DSiWare on my 3DS XL is actually, well, great!

Here's the DSiWare I do have, and (how much I liked it)
Mighty Flip Champs (Enjoyed it)
Pyoro (Enjoyed it)
Mighty Milky Way (Loved it)
Zuma's Revenge (Enjoyed it)
Reflect Missile (Enjoyed it)
Art Style KuBos (Enjoyed it)
SUDOKU EA (Meh)
2-in-1 Solitaire (Enjoyed it)
Art Style AQUITE (Enjoyed it)
Art Style BOXLIFE (Loved it)
Paper Plane (Enjoyed it)
Bookworm (Kinda enjoy it)
A Little Bit Of... Dr. Mario (Kinda enjoy it)
PiCOPiCT (Loved it)
Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition (Enjoyed it)
Pop+ Solo (Kinda Enjoy it)
Aura-Aura Climber (Loved it)
Shantae: Risky's Revenge (Loved it)
WarioWare: Snapped! (Too many technical faults to enjoy)
Mario vs. Donkey Kong Minis March Again! (Doesn't do it for me)
Mario Clock (Derp)
Animal Crossing Calculator (Derp)
Animal Crossing Clock (Derp)
Alt-Play: Jason Rohrer Anthology (Did not enjoy or appreciate)
Art Style NEMREM (Did not enjoy)
Move your Brain Rollway Puzzle (Too many technical faults to enjoy)
Oscar in Toyland (Hated it)

I'm interested in Go! Go! Kokopolo, but this is probably a 800 Point title.
If I could transfer the 100 points on my other DSi to the DSi with 700 points on it...but nah, not happening!

Here are some packs I made based on games I have and enjoy:

The Toy Box pack:
Fishing Resort, AiRace: Tunnel and Candle Route.
These three toy-like games will provide you with lots of on-the-go fun.

The Fisherman Pack:
Fishing Resort and Big Bass Arcade.
If you like fishing you'll love them. Both are fast-paced and fun.

The Time Waster Pack:
3, 2, 1... WordsUp!, Don't Cross The Line and 1001 Blockbusters.
These are perfect for short gaming sessions.

The Pianist Pack:
Learning Piano 1, Learning Piano 2 and Playing Piano.
All three games are fun and pretty.

The Musical Mix Pack:
Guitar Rock Tour OR Mestro! Green Groove and any of the three mentioned above.
