ok dude seriosly BIRD AND BEANS is and awesome 200 point game on dsiware shop channel thingy soo dont waste youre money or free points on clock use it on that

I have Bird & Beans, and it is very fun. That is a much better use for 200 Nintendo Points. However, I might buy the Mario Clock and Caculator for curiousity's sake.

Ways to improve these things:
Make them a bundle
The clock aren't a seperate app, then are a skin for the clock
And they have a game in them (Game & watch, HURRY UP!!!!)

To be honest I found Paper Plane to be a lot of fun.I didn't play it on the original WarioWare so it's relatively new to me and it gets difficult fairly quickly in such a way I'll be extremely pissed off when I crash but still want to have another go.

Dont get me wrong, I still play Pyoro and Paper Plane on my DSi, but its just so easy to jump in and jump out of the mini game on the Mario Clock. I just want people to understand that the Mario Clock is a bit more than just a stupid clock.
I do get bored of Paper Plane after a while though I do like the fact it supports multiplayer on a single DSi

I think I'm going to buy the Mario Clock soon. I mean come on 2€ ? I could get two bottles of cola for that and those last a few minutes. (fixed :D)
The clock lasts way longer so I think it's worth it. If you don't like it just don't buy it.

Actually, I think this thread has convinced me to get both the clock and the calculator ..... sounds like they're not so bad after all.

I wake up every morning to the Super Mario Bros. music.

How is that not worth $2?

:D

lol I didn't even realize I made so much mistakes in my comment :P fixed now.

Oh and I just realized I have enough Club Nintendo Stars* for 300 Nintendo Points :D

So I just bought the Mario Clock and I love it. In my opinion it's totally worth the 200 Points. :D
To be honest I was a little sceptical at first, too.
But now I'm totally convinced it's awesome: For 200 Points you get a Mario themed clock with 3 Alarm times and snooze functions that also work while the DSi is in standby mode. And you can wake up to the Mario theme, the Underwater Theme or the star-power up theme. AND you can play NES-styled Super Mario on the top screen. Mario walks on his own but you can press B to run an A to jump. Every 15 minutes you'll get a new level with a new theme. When you collect enough points you'll find Princess Peach and you'll unlock new levels. And every full hour Mario reaches the castle that is at the end of each level of Super Mario Bros. and the level finished theme plays :D

If that doesn't sound awesome then I don't know...

People like to have the convenience of a calculator on their DSi, or they have a spare 200 points they don't know what to deal with. :P

I bought the Mario clock last night just because I had 200 points leftover. I was surprised at how mindlessly addicting the game is.

I found out this morning that the DSi needs to at least be in sleep mode if you want the alarm to sound.

what is funny about that is that Game & Watch is coming to Dsiware for 200 points (same as the clocks) and it will if I am not mistaking, include a watch for time. Plus the DSi system already includes:
-A built in clock
-A Calendar (photo shop were you can wright memos about each day)
-And an Alarm ( but the DSi system will most likely turn of before you wake up unless you put it on a charger)

For personalization. As in the "i" for dsi. Also spare points. If your average/obsessive/casual and you bought mvdk, you gotta spend those extra points on something right? I own the 2 warioware minigame apps and now I own the photo clock. I plan to get the AC calc soon with my 700 points still waiting and maybe pop plus solo in the near future. I'm highly looking forward to mynotebook as well.
