Xform and Goodbye Galaxy Games recently announced their plans to release Flipper in Europe for DSi Ware on April 23. The game is a 3D puzzle platformer about a boy and his quest to retrieve his stolen goldfish, and features twenty levels and puzzles based around a limited amount of environment-altering power-ups.

We gave it a favorable 7/10 when it was released in North America on February 22. You can read the full press release below and view the trailer, located at the bottom of the article. Don't take this news flippantly - it was a steal at just 500 points, and we expect that European fans will be able to pick it up for the same price.

Utrecht, The Netherlands – April 12th, 2010 – Xform and Goodbye Galaxy Games are excited to announce that their game Flipper for Nintendo DSiWare™ will reach the European shores on April 23rd 2010. The game has been developed exclusively for Nintendo DSiWare.

The hero of the game is a courageous young boy. You must lead him through various worlds full of obstacles to retrieve his stolen goldfish called Flipper!

Get ready for a 3D puzzle platform game set over 4 different worlds, with 5 levels each! The game features beautiful pixel-art backdrops, cheerful cartoon characters and catchy music.

The voxel engine technology allows you to change the environment with some cool power-ups. You can find power-ups that let you blast holes in the environment, build platforms, or restore parts you've previously destroyed. It's up to you to use the limited amount of power-ups wisely to complete each level.

Flipper is a fun and challenging puzzle game that is suitable for all ages.

Great, Hugo did say it was a matter of weeks!

I need to get some points though, I might register all my unregistered games and hope I can get some on Club Nintendo. I still have 400 points which I might save instead of spending on Game and Watch as originally intended.

That does look fun. Gameplay seems similar to Kappa Michi, which is definitely a good thing. Hopefully it's going to appear in the Japanese shop at some point - maybe Marvelous will do a World Game Parade on DSi?
