I've got 200 points going spare. Any suggestions? :)

I havent play to many 200 point games, but the best one I have is Escapee Go! The story mode may not be that long but with around 15 levels to choose from in survival mode I find myself coming back to that title a lot.

So i can't decide what DSiWare game i should buy. i am looking for 500 point games and these are the ones i chose:
-Bomberman Blitz
-PiCTOBiTS
-Trajectile
-Glow Artisan
-AlphaBounce
-Soul of Darkness
-Pop Island (hows the single player?)
-Castle of Magic (is it too short?)
and -Mr. Driller

Lastly, i am choosing between 3 200 point games.
-Aura-Aura Climber
-Spotto
and -Touch Solitaire.

If you can give your input on what i should get, that would be awesome!
P.S- i have not interest in the Electro-plankton and Game&Watch series's.
thanks!

My favorite 500 point DSiWare is Alphabounce. PERIOD. It has limitless levels (at least it feels like it), and all sorts of awesome powerups. I can play it for hours. Just yesterday I started playing it again because I was bored. If you want a medacine to boredom, it is definetly Alphabounce.

The other 500 point DSiWare game I like on your list is Pictobits. You get all sorts of great challenges, and once you beat those, you can get the Dark Levels. Really really really hard levels. You also get to listed to classic NES music! (You can even hear it in sleep mode without head phones. Weird...)

I just recently got 5 in 1, and I really like it. You can play 5 different versions of solitare: Klondike, Spider, Golf, Gaps, and I forgot the other one. (So sorry). But it is really fun. Probably the best 200 point DSiWare.

My first choice would difenitely be Alphabouce though.

Are you sure that's not 5 in 1 Solitaire you're speaking of?

A good 200pts game is aura climber, you cant go wrong with it. 2 500pts games I recommend is AS: pictobits and fieldrunners but I have hear that reflect misile is very good too. Have you consider the option of buying a 800 game and two 200 games? that will be aura, spotto and mario, minis march.

X-Scape is a must! Check out my review here: http://bit.ly/a7Q5K0
And I also highly recommend Pop Island. Super Swap is great too. Let me know if I can provide more help.

I recommend Aura-Aura Climber, most likely the best 200-point game on Dsiware. Pop Island and Dragon Quest Wars are even better.

Thinking of finally picking up a Wii U!

@hulk

I love most of those games, so depends which ones you have a specific interest in :P
Was it a typo when you said 4800 points?

  • reflect misile (500) - Don't have, sounds good
  • art style: zengage (500) - I found this to be too hard to enjoy. Think this is for people who know the difference between a 4x4x4 and 5x5x5 rubik cube off the top of their head. But great game if you want to stare at a puzzle for an hour to figure out your next move.
  • xscape (800) - don't have
  • pop island (500) - don't have
  • pi: paperfield (200) - amazing game, for 200 points the solo mode is worth it without multiplayer
  • quick pick farmer (200) - This is a great stylus action high score game. I rotate it with Pinball Pulse daily challenge, Metal Torrent, and Paper Airplane Chase
  • animal colour cross (200) - Don't have, but reminds me of http://www.conceptispuzzles.com/ , ACC sounds like great puzzle value on DSiWare if you don't already have retail Picross games to finish off
  • soul of darkness (500) - Definitely worth it, and I can replay half the game each day without getting bored. But I like my other DSiWare more
  • art style: base 10 (500) - Loved by some, but I don't recommend
  • art style: aquia (500) - This is a very fast paced match 3 game, and since you can choose your object it's likely to be fun. I don't like Tetris, Bejeweled, etc., but I love this. So depends what match 3 game you want
  • frogger returns (500) - Don't have. Looks interesting, but I'm betting there's better games to get
  • spin six (500) - Don't have, sounds like a mut-have for puzzle fans?
  • the new teyon game [Super Swap] (500) - Don't have
  • dragon quest wars - I don't recommend this game because I don't like the characters. I think you really have to get into the tactics to enjoy this game
  • maybe dodogo (800) - Don't have, sounds like a must-have if you like MvDK or Lemmings
  • maestro: green grove (500) - Don't have
  • the new game from sabraasa [Primrose] (200) - Don't have, try the free PC version that's linked to in the impressions topic
  • a kappas trail (500) - Don't have, didn't look interesting to me, but otherwise sounds like a must-have
  • flametail (500) - Don't have, looks like a cool unique puzzle game
  • metal torrent (500) - Like I said, gives me a great daily rotation of high score games

All I have in that list is X-Scape. It is a great game. I hear that there is over 9 hours of playtime not including the side missions. It is really hard, but I like that. Its effects are so good that it makes you think that your screen is messed up.

Hulklol - Wow. That's a big list. Let me try to give you my favorites.

Get the following for sure: X-Scape, Pop Island: Paperfield, Reflect Missile and A Kappa's Trail. That should leave you with 2,800 points.

If you enjoyed Mario vs. DK: MMA, DodoGo! is probably worth it. The mechanics resemble the second game in the Mario vs. DK series (March of the Minis), but it also has one of the best art styles in the entire DSiWare library.

So, if you've followed my advice you should have 2,000 points left. It's kind of hard for me to make reccomendations at this point, due to me either barely playing them or not having them, as I don't reccomend games I don't have.

If you like Paperfield, get the original Pop Island, as in addition to 8 more maps to play on, supposedly more maps open up on Paperfield. Spin Six is very similar to Bejeweled Twist, but it lacks the endless mode of Twist. Other than that it's a good game.

And that's about all I got. I actually have Flametail and Maestro! Green Groove sitting on my DSi's menu, unopened. If you're still undecided in a couple of days, I can give you my impressions then, though I have Dragon Quest IX burning a hole in my pocket.

One more thing: DO NOT BUY ART STYLE: ZENGAGE IF YOU DON'T LIKE SLIDING TILE PUZZLES AT ALL. That is all.

Exactly.

If you've never tried Pop Island before, get Paperfield. :)

Assuming you don't have Pop Island Original:

If more people posted their high scores, I think that would make Aura Aura worth replaying even more and I would give it the edge. But I haven't even heard anyone else say they unlocked all the achievements.

So I'm giving the edge to Paperfield. The different maps, difficulties, characters, controls, and play modes make it seem very customisable and enjoyable.

Paperfield and Aura-Aura Climber are both polished games that are worth far more than 200 points, so you should aim to get them both eventually. Personally, I prefer the unique gameplay mechanic of Aura-Aura (reminds me a little bit of the grapple arm in Bionic Commando, but it's not even quite like that). Probably the main fun of Paperfield is if you have a bunch of friends that you could play it with.

@hulklol These are the games on your list that I own:
X-Scape (which is awesome, should be one of your first choices, if not your first)
QuickPick Farmer (I play it every day like jdarrel, great deal for 200 points)
Dragon Quest Wars (not made for single player and not many people/no one plays on Wi-Fi anymore so I wouldn't recommend it)

Also I hear that Reflect Missile, the Pop Island games, Soul of Darkness, and A Kappa's Trail are by and large awesome.

@JumpMad Haven't played either but I hear they're both great. Paperfield is the easy multiplayer choice even if your friends don't have the game or even a DSi; it's download play, but Aura-Aura seems to be a great game for getting high scores.

Good luck guys and happy downloading.

I'm going to recommend Primrose, because it seems like it's going to be a widely overlooked gem. With the glut of puzzle games on DSiWare, it's easy to write it off as more of the same, but nothing could be further from the truth. Its gameplay has an elegant simplicity that gives it an easy to pick up quality, beginning with sandbox like freedom in setting up patterns, but as you continue your choices can become very constricted in contrast, and you'll begin to wish you had planned ahead a bit more.
This game has grown on me, so much that it has replaced Aura Aura as my favorite 200 point game.

Hulklol - If you're not completely sold on Pop Island's concept, try Paperfield. It might be a little smaller, but very little changed from the original to Paperfield, so it's a good way to see what it's all about.

Exactly.
