As for 'Donkey Kong '94', it's simply beyond words.. What a platformer! 10/10 in my book.

I'll say Cave Story. It's pure 2D platforming bliss, and it's a better "Metroidvania" title than some Metroids (I at least enjoyed it more than Metroid & Metroid II).

If you've never played it before, Cave Story is a brilliant game with a decently length campaign (I managed 7 hours, people seem to average 9-12) and some good replay value. The 3DS download version includes some extras.

Ikachan isn't worth $5, I'm not speaking for VC.

This is a signature.
Link goes here now.
Screw you.

Cave Story definitely with this version in particular being the best version of CS yet. Definitely nab this one if you are looking for an action platformer with elements of Metroid. If you have enough cash to spare, I definitely Recommend Mega Man 2 (or wait for the superior 3) for some retro run and gun platforming action. As for Ikachan, it was definitely a satisfying experience but $5 is a hard pill to swallow. I'd say get it if you are a fan of Cave Story, which you are not.

Thanks, I was thinking about Cave Story because I've never played it and it looks really cool.

Really, the first couple of Metroid games weren't very good. It was only after Super Metroid that Ninty really hit the jackpot. Zero Mission was the peak of excellence for the series, in my opinion. It is one of the greatest games ever made.

Ok so I have 3 dollars to spend wondering if anyone of you guys can suggest a game for that price or should I just save it. I just got Gunman Clive so please dont recommend that. Also will take Dsiware into consideration too.

If you don't get taxed on downloads in your area, I'd suggest the Sword of Hope II if you enjoy RPGs (it's $2.99).

It's a bit oldschool as far as RPGs go, but you just get sent back to the opening area if you die (you don't lose any items, experience, money, or story progress), so it's forgiving to newcomers.

If Mario's Picross is also $2.99, I'd also suggest that. It's probably the longest GB game I've played, and I really enjoyed it (and I'm usually not much of a puzzle guy).

What's the consensus on Bit Trip Saga.

Want to pick it up but I hear the lag is bad. Does it effect the runner levels?

WAT!

@Sony_70 - I never played the WiiWare/Complete versions, but I was able to beat Runner on Saga. I don't think the lag is too terrible in it, but it can definitely mess up your rhythm on it. 6 high-quality games for only $10? I'd say get it.

@Tasuki - For eShop/DSiWare games worth looking at for under $3, I'd look into Aura-Aura Climber, Candle Route, GO Series: Undead Storm, Pop Island: Paperfield, Spotto! and CATRAP.

Exactly.

I'd say pick up Sword of hope II. Like RR529 said above its a pretty old school first person RPG. The game is oddly difficult as there agree many times monsters can decimate you, but thankfully there is no loss of items or experience. There are also times where the path you need to go isn't that apparent. Early in the game I didn't know where to go and currently im 'be gotten loss in the water stages.

One of the problems I have with the game is there isn't any real checkpoint system so when you die your sent back to the first safe haven and have yo back track to where you were. Its not a problem early on but once you get to later areas of the game. Also the enemy encounter rate is very old school and you seem to get into a fight every 3-4 steps.

I have $10 dollars and I don't know which game on my wish list to buy. The games in my wish list is Crimson Shroud, Rytmik Retrobits, Mighty Switch Force!, Bit Trip Saga, Liberation Maiden, and Link's Awakening DX.

Tough Choice. I'll say Link's Awakening DX. It's a fantastic game all around, and as this is a Nintendo fan site, it's always safe to recommend a first party title.

Crimson Shroud is fantastic if you're into RPGs, though. Liberation Maiden is a blast, with top notch production values, and great for achievement & high score hunters. Mighty Switch Force! is a thoroughly enjoyable platformer that invokes fond memories of the 16 bit era.

I can't vouch for the others.

I know very little about Crimson Shroud but as somebody who has Denpa Men, I'd recommend it if you enjoy quirky RPGs. I especially enjoy taking my 3DS around my neighbourhood, trying to catch myself some new Denpas.
