Charts: 27th December 2011 (UK)

Posted by James Newton

As predicted, the summer of 2011's free giveaway of 3D Classics: Excitebike gave the game a kick-start in the charts and ensured it raced to the top spot and stayed there all year. It'll do well to maintain that lead now the quality 3DS-exclusive software is on the way, though.

Bloons is also free to play on addicting games.com, it's been around for years. Was the DSi ware version even made by the same guys? I've seen two (pun) many games on Nintendo's "ware" service that are just cheap copies of games from AG, which were never even good to begin with.

Pushmo (Pullbox) made a lot of sales. I have money left on my eShop account. I'm wondering if I should get it.

AddictingGames isn't the only flash game website on the internet. Chances are the companies/people behind the flash games were also behind the Nintendo download ports. They definitely were in cases like Bloons where the name is the same.

@JarvanZheitk I know, but I haven't got a credit card :(. The good news is that I finally found a Eshop card! in a grocery store!? They sold gift cards too, and they happened to have Eshop cards!

Glad to see Switch Force and Pushmo doing well. I hope the same is going for Pyramids based on development prices (Still don't understand the hate this game gets. It's brutally punishing, but not bad by any means)

I really hope Pullblox (or any other original 3DS game, just doesn't seem too likely) can climb to the top.
But even if not it seems like sales are way higher on the eShop than they ever were in the DSiWare shop. Zen Pinball / Freakyforms already having overtaken Plants vs. Zombies speaks volumes imo.

And it's interesting that Tetris Party Live and Rayman rise that much in the DSiWare charts. Guess it really makes a difference when another game of the series is recently released / rated. :)
