It's a shame Metroid II is all the way down at number 20. It's such a great game.

From now on it's going to get interesting for Pushmo. While it should be able to override Xevious in the long term i can only hope it will be able to take on the behemoths on the other places in the "All-Time Best Sellers — All Downloads" section.

@Koops3- No, you don't need to play Abyss to enjoy Anonymous Notes. AN is something quite its own. Also, a very enjoyable dungeon crawler.

It was an iffy download for me because of some of the reviews but I'm glad I decided to download Samurai Sword Destiny, I'm loving this game No it's not the best game on the e-shop but there is something addicting about this game to me , don't get me wrong it is by far not the worse game , It to me is one of those games where they should give a demo of it on the e-shop cause I believe there is a group of gamers that would really enjoy this title, I have to say to me it makes some of the best use of the 3D effect that I have seen so far and for what it is as one of those straight forward games I feel it does a good job of being just that a straight forward good game that I hope will find the target crowd it was meant for, I'd recommend it.

@TokyoRed(10.): I'd even go further and say it's the best character-based puzzler that's ever graced a Ninty platform so far. It might not have the most brain-bending puzzles but there's one thing i never experienced in a puzzler before. Just moving, jumping and pulling blocks is fun. Regardless on if you're making progress towards the solution.
So i'd even recommend it to people that aren't into the genre yet.

@TokyoRed I'll probably be hated for this, but I think Pushmo is overrated. Don't get me wrong, it is a good game, but not nearly as good as some people say it is. Tetris is a much better puzzle game

Avenging Spirit has sold less than Tennis. -smashes head against wall-

Go freaking buy that game, already.
