I have Digidrive and Pop Island. Blitz doesn't interest me much, and I'm looking for the best 3 out of Aquia, Glow Artisan, Castle of Magic and Pinball Pulse.

Exactly.

I would pick Glow Artisan, Castle of Magic and Pinball Pulse out of the 3 because I never tried Aquia. Another great Art Syle game is PiCTOBiTS.

Aquia - Great game, but I can't recommend it. A lot of people find it too hard, even though it's an easy game. I got a lot of hours out of it, but nowadays I only use it to relax during a 15-minute break. And now I'm finding Dragon's Lair is more enjoyable for that.

Glow Artisan - There should be a full review here soon? Wait for that.

Castle of Magic - I haven't played this one either. I know it's a different style game, but I'd guess most people would like CoM slightly less than Pop Island.

Pinball Pulse - I think I might have over a hundred hours invested in this game. Reminds me of the Space Cadet pinball game that used to come with Windows. If you liked that at all, then you should love this. Only one table, but the Pandora's Box quest keeps it interesting. My main complaint is it's really crushing when you're trying to get millions of points per ball and then you just suddenly lose; at least the daily game is still fun, even though again you can lose so shortly it's crushing.

Overall, I can't really recommend any of these games unless you're a big fan of the genre. Aquia doesn't use shoulder buttons at all. Pinball Pulse is better with shoulder buttons, but I use left and A (or sometimes d-pad right instead of A). You tilt with the touchscreen, which is ineffective and a lot of people don't like it, but personally I think it makes the game more enjoyable when you get used to it.

Current favorite games:
Bejeweled Twist / Pop Island
Waiting for:
Flipper / Trajectile / Dark Void Zero / Touch Solitaire / BlazBlue DSiWare / Shantae RR

Pass on CoM, you have a lot of action games already on your waiting list. If you really really want another puzzle game, check out what people are saying about Glow Artisan; otherwise, I think Pinball Pulse shall give you a nice variety of games.

I haven't played Bejeweled, but from what I've heard about the PC version of Twist, if it's one of your favourite games then Aquia isn't going to offer anything innovative to you. But it's worth noting that the third Aquia game piece, the square, works in a similar way. You remove a four-piece square from the three-column tower, twist it around, and then put it back in the tower anywhere you want, creating match-threes; it's a lot of fun. My favourite is the second horizontal game piece, because it's the easiest if you don't want to think.

Hmm, I think I'm gonna get Pinball Pulse and wait to decide between CoM, Aquia and Glow. Thanks for your help.

Exactly.

Are there people here that have Rayman and Castle Of Magic? I want one of those two platformers, but what is the best game?
I loved rayman 1 on the gameboy so i wanted that, but what do you people think?

@KillTheHaterzzz: I have both CoM and Rayman. CoM is good if you want something quick and easy. You can absolutely complete the whole game in 4 hours. Rayman will take you longer because the difficulty is a lot higher. However, for 300 more points you get a higher quality, much more polished game that will take you significantly longer to play, especially if you want to "complete" it with all Anti-Dark Matters. The only annoying thing about Rayman is the forced snapshot when you reach a level checkpoint. Hope this helps!

@rosebud- Thnx, I've been thinking of getting one of those two too.

What exactly is Pop Island? Is it like capture the flag or something?

I'm just wondering, does everyone like the single-player of Pop Island at all?

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing about Pop Island. I don't really play multi-player on DS, so I am looking for a good single player experience. Would anyone recommend this game? How long will it last for single player?

pop island is just capture the flag with 300% more colors and cute animals, it is actually quite fun, and the music is very good. Only some odd points keep it from becoming a member of my (nonexistent) top 3, like, each planet has preset animals you MUST use, or the fact that you cant put your name for the highscores, each animal has a preset name, and the like, but it is quite good. if youre more of a loner i guess the single player may get old quickly, though (you must play it to unlock planets and animals for the single player, for multiplayer, you get everything from the go).

Oops, no username pun.

Alright, I just got a points card and here's my game plan:
Art Style: PiCTOBiTS (Heard it was fun. Like the music)
Pop Island (Interesting idea for a game I think)
Glow Artisan (I hardly know anything about it at the moment :p)
Electroplankton: Beatness (I like these things, so don't critique! ...Unless you think I should get a different one...I have Luminarrow...)
That 200 point Defense game whose name escapes me at the moment... :p Army Defender

Whaddaya guys think? Should I re-think anything?
I have: MvDK, Pop+, WarioWare :p, Aquia, Luminarrow, and Precipice

Looks good, but if I were you I'd probably get Bejeweled Twist instead of PiCTOBiTS. At least, that's just me.

Exactly.

Y'see, I actually had a list of all of the games I want for DSiWare:
Pop Island
Bejeweled Twist
Dragon's Lair
Beatness
Hannenbow
Glow Artsian
PiCTOBiTS

Problem is, yeah, Dragon's Lair would really drain my points, and I'm not 100% positive that my patience can withstand the gameplay (which is a VERY dangerous thing). In fact, NOT getting it can knock off more games that I want off that list. Also, I figured I could get Bejeweled on my iPod for two bucks cheaper and be able to buy a different game I want for my DSi...Are there any problems with my way of thinking? If so, speak up and slap me in the face! :p

On a side note, which should I get first?... :p

Pop Island, hands down. Its VERY fun, VERY colorful, and VERY addicting. Only bad side is, no Wi-Fi. (Which sucks, cuz that game would suit Wi-Fi PERFECTLY.)

I myself am the #1 Electroplankton fan, so I suggest getting the other 9 electroplanktons. For a non-electroplankton-fan I would suggest Pop Island. It has a very fun singleplayer, and having 2 people to play with makes it insanely fun.
If you want the best Electroplanktons, stick to Hanenbow, Beatness, and Luminarrow. Those three are the best out of all ten, with Sun-animalcule coming in at fourth.

For 200 points, your best choice is probably Paper Plane or Pyoro.
For 500 points, Pop+ Solo is the only 500 points game I've played and it's incredibly addicting.
I can't believe nobody has mentioned MFC! Goddamnit that's probably the best DSiware game of the year (Not counting Flipnote Studio or that Web Browser)
Anyone know which Art Style is best? I think Pictobits and Boxlife look good.

This is a signature.

Robot Rescue is also one of the best 200 point games on DSiWare, though a non-book control style would've helped it a lot. Also, the "robots" look more like lobsters to me.

Exactly.
