She likes it--especially when she wins. She actually doesn't play many; only sometimes because I don't have any siblings or friends that are interested in video games. When she does play, it's always BIT.TRIP. I knew she would enjoy chick chick BOOM so had her play it and she what she thinks. She hates green falling couches, I know that much.

I was asking tons. I'm sure people will be able to tell. Or look at the usernames.

I'm nominating Corncobman for video game character of the century, by the way.

Thanks for the feedback. You should increase your attack skills for the weight, then your mother will wish back the time of falling green couches

And I am now Corncobman'd.

I'm on a 12 game winning streak on Chick Chick BOOM and hope to continue it today.

Just played this game for the first time today as I remembered to download Friday's demos.
One of the best Wiiware demos I've tested (and I've tested all of them). I think I'll buy this game when I have enough points, I have only 600 at the moment and many other things to buy too (like SMG2, WW:D.I.Y. and Pokémon White).
I liked the way to use weapons and defend. And the thing what makes me wanna buy this is multiplayer mode. It would be lots of fun with my sister and brother. Are locked characters hard to get? (I don't want to get everything too soon.)
And somehow this game reminds me of Worms, especially voices when chickens get into bomb's acid. Their ouch voices are pretty much same.

I tried the demo and enjoyed it quite a bit, but the tiny text (especially during the tutorial) really annoyed me. Not sure if I'll ever download the full game.
Corncobman is awesome though.

Corncobman doesn't compel - Chuck Norris is doing for him.

Finally got to try this game, thanks to the demo, and all I can say is...awesome. Just absolutely awesome.

Well done, guys. I haven't played the full game, but this thing feels like a WiiWare masterpiece. So many other developers (especially--but not limited to--those whose games rely on IR and motion controls) seem to program the game to be "good enough," meaning you end up with awkward controls that the player has to account for...rather than the controls accounting for the player, as it should be.

But this was shockingly smooth and intuitive. Well done to your team...their effort shows.

And, really, this is why Nintendo needs more demos. Little buried gems that people might not take the plunge on, because there's no way of telling the difference between the good stuff and outright garbage. Here's hoping this demo results in lots more sales for you guys.

You would have mine, except I'll wait until I recharge my points. I don't have anyone to play with regularly right now anyway...but that'll change in a few months when I move in with my girlfriend. This is obviously better suited to multiplayer, so I'll wait to experience it then, in all its glory.

Great job. I don't think I've been this impressed by a WiiWare game since the Bit.Trip series.

Oh wait...Airport Mania. Oops. Well, you're still in great company.

Thank you very much! It seems you have a notion of what makes a game good

But seriously, this sentence of you is very true:
"And, really, this is why Nintendo needs more demos. Little buried gems that people might not take the plunge on, because there's no way of telling the difference between the good stuff and outright garbage."

People TRY to tell what's good and what's bad by judging the screenshots or the game description. Most of them are also influenced by hype marketing. The only way of finding out if a game is good, is either reading a couple of reviews or just trying out the game by yourself. That's why the demo is so important, especially for us small (and/or new) development teams.

On a side note: Looking at this page of this thread I feel slightly paranoiac seeing Corncobman everywhere talking to himself

It seems you got a shoutout on the AV Club, if you didn't notice, tons of bits.

Decent review, too. I'll be the first to say that their video game coverage is typically pretty awful (surprising, as most of their other stuff is top notch), but Sawbuck Gamer has been a pretty interesting column, and their writeup of chick chick BOOM is a good one.

I sent chick chick BOOM to the editor Rowan, but anyway thanks for the hint. You should check the video review of The BitBlock, hope it's ok to post it here (but after seeing you as a mod posting a link to another site I guess it's ok ). Josh really made a splendid work there, also the Multiplayermatch is very entertaining:
