Inspired by a similar thread on another forum, I thought it'd be interesting to see what everyone thought of their DSiWare games by giving them a score of 1-10 (loosely based on how satisfied you are with your purchase). Here goes:
Number Battle (10/10)Brilliant strategy/board game based around numbers. Excellent WiFi multiplayer along with a varied story mode and an addictive puzzle mode. Considering this was a retail release in Japan, it's one of the most substantial DSiWare releases (and only 500 pts. to boot).
Pinball Pulse: The Ancients Beckon (10/10)Practically the perfect DSiWare release. Top-notch pinball physics on one of the best table designs I've ever played.
Art Style: Precipice (9/10)Succeeds as both a clever metaphor for the working life and an ingenious action/puzzle game.
Starship Defense (9/10)Appealing, minimalist design along with a large variety of challenging levels and solid balancing/depth make for one of the better tower defense games on any platform.
Trajectile (8/10)Great pick-up-and-play puzzle game that is only marred by somewhat confounding controls.
DK vs Mario 2: Minis March Again (8/10)Solid game, augmented by an excellent level creator and sharing service.
Art Style: Pictobits (8/10)Interesting, entertaining twist on the typical falling puzzler.
Art Style: Aquia (8/10)Under-appreciated gem of the Art Style catalog. It's difficult to grasp and maintains a fairly high challenge, but rewards perseverance with captivating, compelling sound design that evolves as you progress (in addition to a hearty helping of challenging gameplay).
Art Style: Digidrive (8/10)Incredibly addictive and frantic puzzle game if just a little too repetitive and straightforward.
Pop+ (7/10)Incredible soundtrack accompanied by a unique shooter-style game based around chaining similarly colored bubbles to advance and affect/build the music.
Dragon Quest Wars (7/10)Fun, simple strategy game hurt by a lack of substantial singleplayer (as well as the release of Number Battle).
Dark Void Zero (7/10)Enjoyable retro action game with some tedious and inconsistent level design.
Mighty Flip Champs (6/10)Bland paint-by-numbers gameplay hidden by a dual-screen "flipping" gimmick.

If you want an unbiased rating, you have to go to the electroplankton fan thread, where I posted my Unbiased ratings.Varvoice got a 1/10. What a shame.

Mario vs Donkey Kong Minis March Again! (10/10)Great game with TONS of replay value due to trying to get gold and downloadable levels (let alone making your own!).
ELECTROPLANKTON Hanenbow (9/10)An excellent game, that's great form making tunes. I can't really place my finger on why it doesn't get a 10.
Trajectile (9/10)Lots of levels and fun. I can only play about 5 levels at a time, but that means this game will last a long time.
Art Style PiCTOBiTS (8/10)A fun game with great music.
Art Style precipice (8/10)I actually like this game a little more then pictobits, because it has an endless mode.
Pop Island (8/10)REALLY fun to play, especially with friends. One major problem, it makes your thumb hurt. No kidding.
Art Academy First Semester (7/10)This is a great art program, but I haven't used it much yet. I intend to get into it later, but currently I'm too caught up in all the new games I have.
BOMBERMAN BLITZ (7/10)This is a fun distraction, but not as much as some of my other games, and it gets boring if played in excess.
SUDOKU MASTER (7/10)PERFECT for the Sudoku craze I went through a few months ago!
My DSiWare library overall: 8.5/10

Brain Age Maths - 8.5/10Brain Age Arts & Letters - 7/10
Really thought it would be the other way around... but I like maths more than I thought!
Brain Age Sudoku - 7.5/10Pictobits - 8.5/10Pyoro - 8/10
Yeah... all my games are pretty close. It's quite hard!
myNotebook - 5/10
I was pretty disappointed in this. Thought it might come in handy, as I'm always writing notes to myself (organisation freak). The writing is too jaggy. Needs some anti-aliasing.
Only included the .5s to separate my favourites a bit more.
Hasn't been anything I've wanted to spend my money on since those. I wasn't disappointed with the selection then. But I am now... Definitely needs more attention.

An addition to my collection:
Fieldrunners (9/10)Classic tower defense at it's finest. Fieldrunners is perfectly balanced with a considerable challenge and loads of replayability. Add in a substantial amount of content for the price and you have another one of the best tower defense games on any platform. Wouldn't have minded online leaderboards, though...

I can't rate any of these by number, but I'll try to describe as much as I can think of. Usully if it's 2am and I have an urge to play a certain genre game, I'll download it off of DSiWare and haven't really had any regrets yet.
