Next week we'll know what was the best-selling 3DS download of 2011, though we've got a fairly good inkling of what it'll be.

All-Time Best Sellers – All Downloads

Nothing's topped 3D Classics: Excitebike yet, but Pullblox climbs another four places to enter the top ten, meaning it's now outsold DSiWare juggernaut Plants vs. Zombies, among many other titles.

Pullblox is just the kind of new franchise that is needed on any Nintendo console. I wish for more new, and well made, franchises from both first and second party developers in the future.

The third party developers are more then welcome too.

It's first on last week all downloads and last week 3DS Software.
It's eighth on the all time downloads and third on all time 3DS Software.

There was a mistake in the charts when first published that TheJosdude pointed out. It was corrected, so he was right

It's great to see the best original content for the 3DS sell the best. I hope this will continue with both the existing and all the new games that are about to come.
Pushmo / Pullblox could very well be the best character based puzzle game ever made. The genius and ease of the concept and overall design make it fun rather than building up pressure. While i really like other puzzlers out there this one feels more relaxing and comfy to me so i'd even recommend it to people who normally don't like the genre. (just done level 100 yesterday)

How did that Christmas game even MAKE it into the DSiWare charts?!? I didn't think that many people liked those search-and-find games!



Lobster said:

@7 You underestimate the power of having "Christmas" in the title and a Christmas theme around Christmas. You also overestimate the ability of the average person to look up reviews on the internet.

I love hidden object games and really wish that Christmas Wonderland had made it over to North America. I even enjoyed the Halloween hidden object game. True, the kids were creepy-looking, but other than that it was an enjoyable experience.
