@SKTTR, if I were to purchase 2000 Wii points, I could download Mr. D and still have 1200 points left. So how would you spend the rest of the points if you were to purchase a VC title/titles? On the other hand, I've been contemplating on Moto Heroz and so I'd have 500 points left. Would you say Kirby's Adventure would be the best choice for overall replay/production value?
Side note: I completed the original Kirby's Dreamland way back in '92, so I would enjoy experiencing the second installment in the series. (<:

As fun as it is, there are VC games with more replay value than Kirby's Adventure IMO.

There's an NES title with more replay/production value than Kirby's Adventure? I ment in the 500 point range @KnucklesSonic8. Sorry, I geuss I wasn't clear enough. (<:

I'd buy MotoHeroz because that's one I'm interested in, plus I don't have it in any other form (unlike Mr. DRILLER which I have on DS).

Kirby's Adventure is a good 500pts spend, but I like Kirby's Dreamland 3 (SNES, 800/900pts) and Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (1000pts) much more. My Kirby games need to be colorful, and the NES version is lacking in that regard. The SNES and N64 sequels have more puzzles, secrets, levels, challenges, and multiplayer (co-op and minigames respectively) on top of that. That said, Kirby (NES) is still good value for 500pts. Gets a 7/10 from me. The other two (KDL3 and K64TCS) are 8/10. And do I need to talk about Kirby's Fun Pak aka Super Star which is the best Kirby game for most? It's my favourite too (9/10). So that's 3 Kirby games on the VC I would recommend over Kirby's Adventure.

I would recommend other 500 pts games over Kirby's Adventure too. The 3 Master System Wonder Boy games (500pts) are great platformer-adventure series. Especially WB3: The Dragon's Trap. It's one of the best 500pts I've ever spent in the Wii Shop.

Since you like niche puzzlers, I have some unique personal favs I like to recommend to you, like Wrecking Crew (100 stages + level editor), Wario's Woods (100 levels + multiplayer), Solomon's Key (NES/Arcade puzzle platformer with 50 stages and unlimited continues). They're all quite unique and have lots of content that makes those 500pts seem like a bargain.

Also I found both StarTropics games shouldn't be passed up by action-adventure fans. They're just 500pts each after all and they were (each) worth a week of challenge, exploring and adventuring.
The only thing I feel needs a mention are the final bosses in the StarTropics and Wonder Boy games: They can be pretty difficult.

And before I forget: Kid Icarus, a platformer/adventure I never played before, but came to love when I downloaded it on the Wii. It's difficult in the beginning but gets easier as you equip new stuff and get stronger.

I'd get MotoHeroz instead of Mr. DRILLER W. And for the 500pts I'd try one of the Wonder Boy's or Solomon's Key if one of these appeal to you.

With the latest WiiWare removals, I'd buy WiiWare games first - you never know if they're going to delete Mr. DRILLER tomorrow. It's a pain lately to set up gaming money priorities.

I know you have Max&the Magic Marker, And Yet It Moves, World of Goo and other games, but what about NyxQuest? LostWinds 1&2? Phoenix Wright 123? FFCC My Life as a King? Bonsai Barber, Flowerworks, Art Styles, Excitebike World Rally, Cave Story?
Have you tried any of these? All remarkable experiences for me and there's still more I'd recommend. Later. After you catch-up on a few of these.

What's Kirby Super Star all about @SKTTR? I've been contemplating Moto Heroz, but I've been informed that it's enjoyable, but not worth the premium price tag attached to it. There's something about the Wonder Boy titles that's a turn off for me. I also have Kid Icuras in my VC collection. So if I did purchase Moto Heroz, I'd most likely press for Kirby's Adventure. Wrecking crew seems a little too simple for me. I've played the freeware version of Cave Story, but never put too much effort into it though. So I'm still a little undecided here.

Kirby Super Star has a collection of different stories that slightly alter the way of playing a Kirby game - one story is pretty fast paced Kirby action, one is a treasure hunt: an explorers and puzzlers adventure, another one is a race, and there's co-op (that is better than the co-op in KDL3) and fun minigames for 2 players (that are better than the ones in K64).

It's a shame that Wonder Boy doesn't have more fans. Maybe it has something to do with the inconsistency of the series? First was a straight forward arcade-platformer, second was a unique arcade action-adventure, third removed the aracde aspect and formed a true platformer action-adventure, fourth was a run&gun/shmup mix, fifth (Wonder Boy in Monster World) was a combination of the best ideas in the series packed into another great action-adventure/jump&run, and sixth was Wonder Girl. Or is it because the hero looks different in every game? Trivial.
Anyway, thinking about the series the beautiful soundtrack comes to mind. Well, ok, the first one is different to say the least, but still, I always thought of that repeating cheery theme as iconic, just like Bubble Bobble's repeating theme. Anyway, these games have great graphics and controls too. 1 3 and 5 are my favs. I've yet to play Wonder Girl (Monster World IV) which is announced for VC release.

Puzzle fans should try the Rubik's Puzzle Galaxy game. It's pretty good and a mere 600 points.

I would definitely recommend Aya and the Cubes of Light to puzzler fans as well @yoss4ri4n. You can read my thoughts on the matter in the impressions thread I've created. (<:

Wow, nobody would recommend Burn the Rope or Mr. Driller W? Well, how about 3D Pixel Racing then?

There's a demo of it that's currently available on the Wii Shop Channel. That should be all you need.

Exactly.

Me again. I have my choice of a 500 point WiiWare game to be gifted to me for getting second place in a Backloggery contest, so I'm trying to decide between EscapeVektor, lilt line or Tomena Sanner on WiiWare, or, from the NES VC, either Adventures of Lolo game, Punch-Out!! w/ Mr. Dream, or Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom. Any suggestions?

Exactly.

what should i get I have some extra wii points and im think of getting some games?

right now i've been looking at getting ff 4 the after story or ffcc my life as a king

FFCC: My Life as a Darklord is vastly better, and it only costs 1000 points. There's also plenty of useful DLC for Darklord. My Life as a King is good too, but not as good as Darklord.

Hope there's a review for Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder soon.

I have to disagree with Mahe — I have My Life as a Darklord, dropped another $20-some on DLC for it just to get through the game, and hated most of it. It gets horribly tedious and you honestly cannot get through to the end without purchasing DLC, which should've been a warning sign to me in the first place IMO. only go for Darklord if you are a die-hard fan of tower-defense games... if you're just looking around for something fun and could go either way on a TD game, avoid Darklord and go for My Life as a King instead.

Well, Fluidity is available on Club Nintendo now. It looks fun enough, but with the roster of games changing every month, I'm afraid something much better will be available next month. Is it any good?

Yes, and 150 coins is a steal for it. If I hadn't already bought this, I definitely wouldn't pass it up, but I also have quite a few CN coins, so I'm not worried about having coins for next month. If I only had enough coins for one game, I'd probably hold off just in case something more amazing comes along next month, unless you know that you've already downloaded every Nintendo game you could possibly prefer to this one.

I have hardly any VC/WiiWare games, and I only have 200 coins right now. I do, however, plan on getting a 3DS and at least four games (plus some eShop games) that will be able to be registered. Thing is, I was previously saving for Hanafuda cards, and now I want the Zelda 25th Anniversary posters. So it'll still be about 200 if I go for the posters. :/

How much is 150 coins? It seems to me that you get away much better with it than spending 1200 Wii Points on it. Maybe a good chance for everyone who was on the fence before.

Personally, these were the best 1200 pts I spent on the Wii Shop. In fact Hydroventure/Fluidity is the cheapest 10/10 game on WiiWare. My other three 10/10 games (World of Goo, Life as a King and MotoHeroz) were all 1500pts.

I'd try this addictive physics-based 30-hour game if you're into adventure-puzzle-platformers and if 150 coins is a good deal.
