Top 20 DSiWare Games in USA (5th Nov)

Posted by Corbie Dillard

It's Thursday and time for our DSiWare Top 20!

It's time to take a look at the most popular DSiWare titles available on the DSi Shop. If you're feeling adventurous you can even take a look for yourself by simply logging on to the DSi Shop, heading into the DSiWare section and then viewing by "Popular Games". It's that easy!

We compile this list using the USA region DSi Shop, so if you live elsewhere your list will probably be quite a bit different. Please feel free to post your region's findings below as always.

Keep in mind that the list below is based on the total number of downloads made recently, not an overall total of downloads since the game's original release.

Top 20 DSiWare Games for the 5th of November:

1 [1] - Flipnote Studio
2 [2] - Nintendo DSi Browser
3 [3] - Crash Course Domo
4 [4] - MySims Camera
5 [5] - Rock-n-Roll Domo
6 [8] - Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again
7 [7] - Pro-Putt Domo
8 [19] - Sudoku
9 [10] - White-Water Domo
10 [11] - Hard-Hat Domo
11 [9] - Dragon Quest Wars
12 [6] - Pinball Pulse: The Ancients Beckon
13 [12] - Guitar Rock Tour
14 [13] - Paper Airplane Chase
15 [15] - Asphalt 4: Elite Racing
16 [14] - Thorium Wars
17 [16] - Bird & Beans
18 [N] - Battle of Giants: Dragons - Bronze Edition
19 [17] - Dr. Mario Express
20 [18] - WarioWare: Snapped!

* [N] - Denotes a brand new entry in the Top 20
* [-] - Denotes a game that was not on the Top 20 last week

Well the top five games remain intact from last week, with the two free apps still ruling the top of the chart. We did see Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again sneak back up into the #6 spot, possibly signaling a resurgence of this unique DSiWare title.

The big climber this week was Sudoku, which shot up eleven spots to #8. The big dropper this week was Pinball Pulse: The Ancients Beckon, which fell six spots to #12. Could this fun pinball sim be on its way off the Top 20 already?

We did see Battle of Giants: Dragons - Bronze Edition make its debut on the Top 20 in its original week of release, so it will be interesting to watch and see how far up the chart this release can go in the coming weeks. Of course with the addition of Battle of Giants: Dragons - Bronze Edition, we did see Mario Clock drop out of the Top 20.

OMG. The clocks and calculators are off the list! Snapped is next.... And how is Dr. Mario Express surviving this long?

Hmm... Domo is taking the list by storm, knocking MySims Camera out of its coveted #3 spot.... And the rest of the Domo games are placed nicely.

Good list this week! Weird how one of my DSi Shop Updates had a Weekly Top 6 and MySims Camera was #2....

@zezhyrule: It's actually not as bad as people make it out to be. It's a simple yet fun app. However, It still doesn't deserve to be ahead of some of the games that it's ahead of.

This week, the first 5 games remain unchanged (with the freebies still in first and second). Battle of Giants: Dragons - Bronze Edition was the only new release in the top 20 (#17), while Viking Invasion and Sparkle Snapshots missed.

The biggest climber this week was SUDOKU (^8), while the biggest dropper was Pinball Pulse: The Ancients Beacon (v5).

We say goodbye to Mario Calculator, which was 20th last week.

Really surprised to see Pinball Pulse drop so far off the charts, it's the best single DSiWare game ever!! VIKINGS game sucks, sorry sirgrim!

Vikings isn't the best DSiware game, but its still decent fun.
Nice to see Sudoku(EA) to climb up the list, if anyone is going to buy at least one sudoku game for DSiware, it should be this one, its a fun title.
Pinball Pulse!? NO! I want to see that up to at least in the top 10 next week. Its one of my favs.
I'm surprised Domo is at #3, Crash Cousre is fun, but not as good as Pro-Putt, Even though all of the Domo games are nothing but space on my SD card as of now. I need an SD Channel. NOW.

Thats all I have to say about this week's list.
