Hi. I've got 2000 points and I don't know what to with them. There some games in which I'm interested and I'd be thankful to get some advice:
Mega Man 9
Mega Man 10
Fast League
Pearl Harbor
Tomena Sanner
DKC2 and DKC3
Kirby 64
Ogre Battle 64 (This one is too long, not sure about it)
Cave Story. I'm waiting for the eshop version.

I definitely recommend Tomena Sanner. Despite the review for Kirby 64 on this site, it was actually my favourite of the games on the Kirby Dream Collection disc: it's kind of interesting because it's 3D in appearance, but you follow a very linear path through the game. I haven't played the other games you're asking about.

Of those games I recommend DKC2 and 3. Definately worth 800pts each.

And Driift Mania. A very fun 8-player racer in the vein of Super Off-Road and Super Sprint easily worth the 800pts as well.


I recommend Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.
Though it has an unfair and totally unjustifiable review on "some websites" , it is a really great game. For me it is one of the best if not THE best Kirby game of all time. And 1000 points is a very good price for this gem. Used on amazon they go for at least 25 Euro (where I live).

DKC2 is one of the finest platformers ever made. Seriously.

Kirby 64 is also pretty great as long as you don't mind Kirby being a little bit slower than usual.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

I've got 600 Wii points, and have n idea what to spend it on.
Anyone here know of a good Wiiware or VC for that many points.

For you, the day LordJumpMad graced your threads, was the most important day of your life. But for me, it was Tuesday.

So it has to be exactly 600 points you want to spend? No 500?

In that case, have you tried one of the Art Style games? They're all great. Hope you find one of them useful.

Uh.. just realised there aren't really many 600pts-games on WiiWare...
There's Robocalypse Beaver Defense, a tower defense game you can have fun with for a weekend. (10 story missions and 5 endless missions) It has a horrible presentation and only Wii pointer controls but it's decent still.

On VC the Turbografx games (and NES imports) are 600pts. I can't help with TG though because I wouldn't recommend Neutopia over Zelda, or Bonk over Mario. My Top 3 TG games are from the Turbografx-CD and cost 800pts anyway.

Thanks for the update, and I don't mind if its an 500 points game, I just want to spent these points on something good, like a gem of a game that I never heard of.
I might end up getting Castlevania 3 or StarTropic, if not anything better.

I remember playing the Jett Rocket demo back when it was released and wasn't very impressed. I think it had to do with playing Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Sunshine at the time and playing it felt average.

Nearly three years later, I now want to purchase the full game because of how impressed I am. The graphics remind me of Super Mario Galaxy, the item collecting and music remind me of Spyro, futuristic setting and jet pack remind me of Ratchet and Clank and the simplicity reminds me of Crash Bandicoot.

I might just wait for the sequel, though.

NyxQuest vs Jett Rocket?

From what I gather (please correct any mistakes or feel free to argue your opinion):

NyxQuest: Great 2D platformer, great use of Wii pointer controls, great atmosphere

Jett Rocket: Good (great?) 3D platformer, great graphics.

Jett Rocket is slightly longer than NyxQuest, but it also has more glitches. The glitches in both games seem to be only graphical glitches (no Wii crashes).

Again, correct me on anything you think is wrong! Or add more info/opinions.



@apowes: I haven't noticed any noteworthy glitches in both games. NyxQuest took me 8 days to beat, Jett Rocket 10 days. Both games have 12 levels. Both games are very good. (Both have some extras: If you find all secret items in NyxQuest you unlock a 13rd level. Jett Rockets has 20 interesting challenges.) It's a close call. I would recommend buying both but Jett Rocket looks a bit more impressive to me.

Edited on by Omega



Took me 5 hours to complete NyxQuest (find the relics in all stages), and 10 hours to complete Jett Rocket (finding all collectibles and achievements).
But yeah, NyxQuest had some great stages and physicsbased ideas, while Jett Rocket is much like Mario 64/Banjo-Kazooie.
Both have great audiovisuals, NyxQuest more on the artistic side, Jett Rocket more on the shiny tech side of things.

Both are pretty good quality platformers. Almost up there with Hydroventure, La-Mulana, Robox, LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias, and And Yet It Moves.

Try Lit or Liight. With all the games you have I'm surprised you haven't tried either of those.



I played through the LIT demo, and while it was an original puzzler, I felt you could only do so much with it. Is there more variety later on? How many stages/hrs of gameplay?

Liight was always on my wanted-list, but it never got an EU release unfortunately.


I think there are 35ish classrooms. The first 10 or so are pretty straight forward, but after that they get tough. I would say around 6ish hours, possibly more if you get stuck.



Yeah, I hope I'll find the time to squeeze LIT in somewhere someday, but with Wii U's eShop getting great games lately I rarely add points to my Wii Shop account. Also, somehow The Tales of Bearsworth Manor games jumped into top priority spot, so if I ever get to add some points to my Wii I want to check them out first.

Instead of listing my games, I'm listing the few good and interesting one's I'm still missing in 5 categories:

1. "I can play them or have completed them at a friends Wii but I'd like to add them to my own collection some day"

  • Adventure Island: The Beginning,
  • Final Fantasy IV: The After Years
  • Home Sweet Home
  • Konami Rebirth Series - Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth
  • Konami Rebirth Series - Contra ReBirth
  • Konami Rebirth Series - Gradius Rebirth

2. "Just for completeness sake"

  • Frogger Hyper Arcade Edition (to wash out the foul smell of Frogger Returns)
  • FUN! FUN! Minigolf (last Shin'en game missing)
  • Sonic The Hedgehog 4 - Episode I (have all the main series S123&K on VC)
  • Toki Tori (own, completed and loved the sequel on Wii U)
  • Mega Man 9 & 10 (With Wii U I was able to get into the series)

3. "Games that are supposedly good, but I never gave em a chance anyway.. until now"

  • Tales of Bearsworth Manor
  • LIT
  • Rage of the Gladiator
  • Vampire Crystals

4. "I want to try them even though they could be utter garbage"

  • Babel Rising
  • Critter Round-Up
  • Dracula: Undead Awakening
  • Fenimore Fillmore: The Westerner
  • Fish Tank
  • Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder
  • Sabarasa's Protöthea
  • Sabarasa's Horizon Riders

And finally the special category called
5. "I really want it, but my Wii has not enough memory to run the complete game with all DLC"

  • Mix Superstar


Horizon Riders i liked it. I played the demo and it had an update to use the nunchuk to move the character. I don´t think it is a bad game, try the demo (but it doesn´t has the updated control).

Me gusta jugar videojuegos. Soy de México. Sorry my english grammar. I love the Virtual Console, party and fighting games too.
