I am interested in this, dont mind the tilt ( maybe not the 360 degree stuff i dont like) and havent played the original. Worth it? Also, discuss the game here.

It looks so different to the original which I didn't buy, but this one looks better

I got the first game through club nintendo for a few coins several months ago. Don't remember exactly how many coins I payed for the wiiware game. How does the sequel differ from the original though?

I liked the first game a little bit (wiiware game) but I don't think I'll be buying the sequel unless they give a demo for the game plus the $10.99 price tag in the NA e-shop is a bit much for an e-shop game. I just checked the e-shop today & that was the price tag on it. I don't normally mind paying a higher price for a game if I like it & know previous games in the series are good but the sequel just doesn't look that tempting to me. Sorry...

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

The original is absolutely my favourite WiiWare game. I can't wait for this.
@Barbiegurl777
$10.99 is a bit much, I agree. Hopefully there is enough content to justify that pricetag.

@Wescash

Yeah I agree as well with the content justifying the price tag. I'm gonna wait til nintendolife review it & see if a demo comes along if not then it probably won't get downloaded at least by me. I do like the wiiware game but just haven't played it enough to fully justify getting the sequel just yet.

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

I like how it uses the gyro feature makes me want WW Twisted on VC or at least a 3DSWare "remake" with the title on the 3DS menu switched to a GBA and making the GBA noise... Why can't they do that?

I need a demo, because the gyro feature looks pretty bad to be honest due to the two screens.

And $11 is quite a bit to be dropping, so since there are many other games I wanna get as well, I might have to wait.

This is a signature.

I am hoping this game is ported to Wii U because I cannot see spinning the 3DS like that to be that enjoyable.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

Bought it and played it for an hour yesterday and I think it's way better than the Wii release.
Not all the levels can be turned upside down but these full spin levels are my favorites. The gyro feature work flawlessly and not only you can turn the 3DS but you can bend it forward to be faster as well.
Believe me ! The full twist feature are the best one that could be added in this release and it works like a charm.
I remember to be annoyed by the limited twist in the Wii release but now, it's not limit gymnastic !

Definitely a demo and a convincing review or two for me. With everything else I want on the eShop and the risk factor associated with this game's gyroscope usage, $11 is just too much for me.

Exactly.

Can we get the OP to add Fluidity to the title? That way we won't get confusion from some of us in NA.

I'm definitely downloading just based on the wiiware version. Not over thrilled with the gyro since it ditches 3d but still looks like good fun.

I loved this on the Wii.

But I'm with "rayword45" on this. As much as I love gyro controls on my handhelds like my latest Ipad, ipod, iphone 5 and PS Vita, I feel that the 3DS XL is too big, bulky (two screens) and heavy for that much gyro use, it also has a folderdable screen in which constant gyro motions might damaged the hinges that hold the top screen up right .

I know as a man I'm going to have problems constantly turning my 3DS XL round 180 to 360 degree's without dropping the bloody thing as its quite bulky and heavy compared to my other handhelds. I hate to say it but the 3DS in general isn't suited for gyro usage on this scale, especially 360 motions.

I just don't see it catching on and I can see a lot of users having accidents while playing this. This game gets no support from me.

Just for your information : obviously there is no 3D feature in this game.
And to people saying they could damage or drop their 3DS, movements required to play are not necessarily fast.
I got a 3DS XL and I handle it gently with this game.

@gurtifus - Just for a comparison, how does the gyroscope usage in Hydroventure compare to Mario Kart 7's gyroscope steering feature? Also, what concerns me more than the standard rotation is the sections of the game where you need to spin your 3DS 360º. How prevalent are those sections (are they like 50% of the levels, or more like 10%)?

Exactly.

@Birdman - Sorry, I can't compare with Mario Kart 7 as I don't own it. Until now, there are more than 50% of the levels where you need to rotate your 3DS 360°.
But instead of turning the 3DS when movements required are more than 90°, I prefer to bend the 3DS forward. It's easier and more comfortable.

Got hydroventure, really fun so far, if a bit easy, though i heard it gets harder. the 360 degree levels are a revelation. the tilt controls are great.
