Otty_Ott commented on Nintendo Download: 10th November 2011 (North A...:

Bloons TD has gotten great reviews on other platforms like iOS and PSP Minis...

FreakyForms is a new 3D game from Nintendo..

Castle Conqueror games have always been good...

How can people call this a bad week? Well, bad for Wii, but not bad at all for DS and 3DS!

Got this. The graphics are good, but I don't like the game at all.... Having to beat a ghost time isn't something I like....

I never got past level 1 either. Now, years later, I know I'll never get past level 1... I will pass.

Otty_Ott commented on DSiWare to Become Nintendo's App Store?:

Hey, I am a hardcore DS and Wii gamer. And I have a PS3...

But...

I just got an iPod Touch a couple of weeks ago and the App Store is awesome. Yes, there is tons of junk on it, but there are also a lot of fun games. And they are CHEAP! Lots are free or only 99 cents. And a lot of those ultra cheap games are really good.... there are enough websites out there, and customer reviews on iTunes, to lead you to the good ones. It gives me great hopes for DSiWare... but also makes me not that eager anymore to upgrade to a DSi.... My DS Lite will do just fine for now since I have my iPod Touch to go with it...

Otty_Ott commented on USA WiiWare Update: Strong Bad Episode 5 & Big...:

Big Kahuna Reef 1 & 2 have been released for PC for a long time.

You can play the online version here:

The commercial versions have hundreds of levels and thousands of levels you can download. The games come with level editors and there is a huge community making levels for the PC games.

They are Bejeweled-type games, but with a lot of extra features. I really like the Big Kahuna games and hope the WiiWare version is equally fun. Sure, they are just Match-3 games, but they are tough and have some interesting features.

Otty_Ott commented on USA WiiWare Update: Boingz & Sudoku Challenge!:

I'll stick to my DS sudoku games with handwriting recognition etc., like Brain Age and Sudoku Gridmaster... There is nothing worse than a bad Sudoku game, and after watching the trailer for Sudoku Challenge, it looked like it has a bad interface...

Otty_Ott commented on EU WiiWare Update: Tetris Party, The Incredibl...:

Home Sweet Home is a casual PC game that was ported over to WiiWare. It recently received a sequel, Home Sweet Home 2: Kitchens & Baths. Both retail for $19.99, so 1000 Wii points is half price of the originals.

Gamezebo.com, the top casual games review site, gave the original Home Sweet Home a 4.5 stars out of 5. You can read their review here:

It will be interesting to see how the WiiWare version stacks up to the PC game.

Otty_Ott commented on Top 20 WiiWare Games in USA (17th Sept):

Hey, I love My Aquarium. It is not a game. It's a glorified screen saver, but a fine one. It is nice to leave on while you do other things around the house. The camera will lock onto one fish and follow it around the tank. You also unlock new fish a couple times a week. The reason why it is selling so much is it is only $5 and for that price, it is terrific. Everyone in my house loves having it on the TV. It is relaxing like a real aquarium is, without the cleanup work and dead fish...

Otty_Ott commented on Big Kahuna Party to Bring Multiplayer Fun to W...:

Big Kahuna Reef 1 & 2 are casual games for the PC, and very good ones at that. They are match 3 games like Bejeweled and are known for several things...bombs with massive chain reaction explosions, tricky difficulty, multiplayer called Mouse Party, and 1000's of user created levels.

Mouse Party lets 2 or more players make matches at the same time and compete for a higher score.

Reflexive Entertainment is a casual game developer known mainly for Big Kahuna Reef an the Ricochet family of breakout style games. Their games are very well made and fun. I find it interesting they are expanding onto Wiiware. It will be fun to see if Big Fish Games, Sandbox games, Mumbo Jumbo and others follow suit.
