Ok, I'll probly but Maestro if I ever have some points lying around.

Okay, so I have 500 points left. Which should I get? :
-Soul of Darkness,
-A Kappa's Trail,
-Glow Artisan,
-Maestro (is it all classical music stuff?)
or -Face Pilot (if it works, Nintendo Life says it does, IGN says it doesn't)

I have no interest in ArtStyle games and I'm not into puzzle. (except for Glow Artisan)

@KC - Green Groove is mostly (or maybe all) classical stuff. If that doesn't float your boat, get A Kappa's Trail. I personally found Glow Artisan to be too challenging and SoD to be a little too overhyped (an 8, possibly, but definitely not a 9). As I don't reccomend games I don't have, I have nothing to say about Face Pilot.

Exactly.

Sweet. Is A Kappa's Trail long?

Face Pilot works if you have the right background. Otherwise, it'll freak out and become unresponsive.

Yep, and it's got a lot of replayability to it. The 3 minigames could've easily been 200 point games by themselves if they were fleshed out more.

Exactly.

All DSiware games are Short and Boring.

Your better off saving your cash for a DS game you haven't played yet.

But the Best DSiware games, are the ones that make you come back for more.

For you, the day LordJumpMad graced your threads, was the most important day of your life. But for me, it was Tuesday.

Alphabounce just made your comment untrue.

I see that A Kappa's Trail didn't get that good of a review though.

@JumpMad - Clearly you've never played AlphaBounce, X-Scape or Mario vs. DK: Minis March Again!

@KC - According to NL's scoring policy:
"A seven is not average in our eyes. This game will sport a few areas where the game is blatantly let down to the detriment of its overall quality and enjoyment, but it is NOT average."

There are two detriments to this game (at least imo): The huge difficulty leap and the camera control. However, with a little practice, both of these aren't really that big.

Exactly.

This might be my last points card and i have 500 points left. If i were as addicted to purchasing WiiWare as him, I would be effected like everyone else. Besides, 24700 points? Some people need some self-control.

@KCK Did you have any specific questions about any of those games?

I've heard of a person whose played Soul of Darkness for his 3rd time, and he's not tired of it. I was wondering if that's because he's one of the people who can't put a game down until its beat, or not.

And to my perspective, A Kappa's Trail looks kinda strange. If Face Pilot works, i would kinda prefer that.

I look for games that made special use of the DSi's camera and other specialties. Soul of Darkness and Castle of Magic have that feature, but there both short. Thats why I'm interested in Face Pilot and Glow Artisan.

I'm also really into music so Maestro interested me, but I'm more into modern Christian hard rock and stuff. I liked the concept and stuff, but if the length is not worth the price. How long is that game anyway?

Face Pilot works, trust me. You can adjust the camera to work in a bright room, or a dark room far that matter, and it helps a bit. Honestly, IGN must've been playing this game in a cave or something. Its an 8, and DEFINALLY not a 4, or what ever low score IGN gave it.
As a side note: I may think IGN is baised, but I don't hate them. Just thought I should let you know.

I too want to know how long Maestro is, because I'm not really sure if I want to buy a short game. :/

I played through Soul twice (the second time on hard.) If I was out of games to play I could play it about an hour a day even though there's no real point. Basically expect to play it once, maybe twice for the sake of hard mode.

I would call the camera for Face Pilot glitchy, I was able to get perfects in all the levels without difficulty though, haven't heard anyone else mention completing the game though. Someone said it works outside good. Other than that, you basically need a spot to play that you can tilt the DSi without a white ceiling etc. filling up 1/3 of the screen.

Actually the camera use in soul of darkness you merely hold a colour right in front of the lens to get a minor amount of currency from chests. Can't remember if there was another feature.

For lengths, Face Pilot can be completed in I think a few hours. Glow Artisan has a decent length, but when you have other games you probably won't spend much time on it after you finish it. Other than that I thought the random level feature was well done.

I don't have Maestro, but there's a few reviews for it:

And there's another one that has a Youtube review (at the bottom):

With the music choices it seems they went out of their way to make it a fun game for anyone who likes music at all. I'd expect it to be as replayable as the average music game with a low amount of songs.
