This and Art of Balance Touch are on my wishlist.

Just a guy making solo music using Garageband.

@retro: reala kinda made a decent point to me earlier — even if you don't code yourself, you'll at least be able to play what looks like some pretty neat little games via QR code sharing :3

Lol pretty neat little games, that's cute. I'd give you a lolipop if you weren't a mod.

Anyways BASIC isn't that hard to learn I think. "Print: HEY"... dammit wait I forgo how to BASIC...

Kachou on!

But yeah, the presser says that novices should be able to do stuff no problem. I've downloaded the program but haven't had time to start it yet.

I don't quite agree. Novices will have a lot of learning to do to make the type of content they are probably dreaming about... but anybody can do some simple text-based programs in a matter of minutes.

My goal is to (re)create some solitaire card games using the tool, or maybe a simple Sudoku engine.

The 30 included music tracks are pretty good I've got to say. I've already found the perfect track for the first real game I want to make.

Well yes, it won't be as simple as booting it up and forging masterpieces. Even Klik 'N Play had a somewhat steep learning curve.

Thought I'd post a few interesting looking games from petit computer DSiware I found on youtube:

Can't wait to get home and give this a try. I love the idea of having something with me that I can play with. Haven't touched BASIC in years, but shouldn't be hard to pick back up.

One concern is how frustrating will this be with having to use an on screen keyboard. Back to the days of "single finger' punch typing I guess (only with a stylus this time)...

@ejamer pointed it out in the comments on the game page but I thought that since not everybody reads that I would re-post it here for everyone.

PTCUtilities appears to be a PC/Mac program that allows you to program on your computer (yay real keyboard) and export via QR codes to the DSiWare app.

It's just a sound tester for those who want to hear all the sounds and songs included, it's pretty basic but I like that primitive feel.
I thought programing with the touch screen would be worse, but it's actually very fun.

Oh look! A Morphloggery.
Oh! eShop Gurus.

Wow, that's a nice job on Lone Battlefield. Might try to pick that up and check it out. Somehow I always think of BASIC programming as being less graphics-friendly, so jump to more static games. But the motion looked pretty smooth there.

So what games/apps are people thinking about creating? Is it lame to say I'm debating between a Sudoku engine or a solitaire card game for my first big effort (with some even less interesting tests taking place before starting something that ambitious)?

@turtelink Yes, but I'm not musically inclined, so I'll just go with the music they give us. Oh, and some of the sound effects are pretty neat too: there's a dog bark and a cat meow, which I can just imagine doing something hilarious with.

When I get this game, I'm going to make a simple platformer called Stride.

Copied this over to the QR code sharing thread. Congrats on being the first.
