Thanks for the advice! The reason I didn't get Toki Tori is because it brings back bad childhood memories of a game called Pugsy (I think) on the sega megadrive. Using all these different objects and power ups to try to solve the most ridiculous puzzles. I remember losing my mind and begging WHsmith to take it back off me so it wouldn't haunt me any longer (thankfully they did).

Toki Tori might be completely different but when I see the character and level design I just think 'oh no not again!!' Still I'm older and wiser now so I might take the plunge and put myself to the test.

Well done to Frontier for making such an interesting game mechanic; using your Wiimote to control the wind. But for me the game was a disappointment and I wouldn't recommend it unless you are a big fan of 2d plat formers or have wii points to burn.

I don't wish to offend anyone that likes the game but 1000 wii points for three hours of dubious fun just isn't good enough for me. The story is pretty lame, which is surprising seeing as though it kind of rips off one of the greatest games ever made; Zelda. And the puzzles get pretty boring pretty quickly, even in such a brief adventure.

Overall as a Wiiware customer I felt like I was being used as a guinea pig or a games tester. 'Do you like this prologue to a game?' 'Good. So now we're going to make the real game.' That was never my idea of how a Wiiware game should be and I really hope that this strategy is not setting a trend for forthcoming Wii titles.

BTW while I'm considering this game's value I'm comparing it to other Wiiware title and VC games.

This game is fantastic! I can't believe it only cost me one fifth of a standard retail game. Its so addictive, the graphics and music are sweet and you get two games based on the same principle but with suprisingly different gameplay. Add the wifi connectivity and you have yourself a winner: 10 out of 10.

Can anyone answer this question. I'd never play Dr Mario before but I found getting grips with it a lot of fun and now I enjoy trying to beat my high scores and testing myself against the rest of the world on Wifi, I've also never played Action Loop Twist or any of its clones, should I ignore the 7/10 it got on WiiWareWorld and go ahead and buy it considering how ace Dr Mario is, which also got 7/10???
