I dont know if I really fully get this game yet, but for some odd reason I seem to come back to it often...I think it is worth the 500 point price tag.

Looks like I am the only person so far willing to try it..first impression is 8/10. I have not gotten too far yet, but it is a solid action platformer. N+ comes to mind when playing it, hmm, that would make for a good DSi ware title...

Is it possible to do a fix for the problems the game has? I know with the PSP minis the developers sometimes listen and correct the problems.

yodude commented on Music On: Electric Guitar:

Great job, I wish it had a save funtion for the chord progression that I make up and some type of built in drum feature, but I really enjoy this despite that. I hooked up my DSI to my ihome and really cranked the volume, sounded great. This is a title I tend to always go back to to mess around with. I would give it a 10/10, especially at 2 dollars or perhaps a better rating would be a 11/10 (Spinal Tap joke).

yodude commented on Review: Music On: Drums (DSiWare):

This is an excellent download, I think the review should have been higher, 9/10 for me for what it tries to do. I have all the other music applications for the DSi and found this one to be the most polished in appearance and fun to mess around with. You are limited as mentioned, but for what it is, it is great. Developers keep these types of applications coming!

Just a note, if you are looking for something that is more complete music experience, you may want to try Rythm Core Alpha as that really packs a lot into a $5 download. May not be as pretty look at, but def wil enable you to do more musically.

Excellent, easily an 800 point release. This is slick, fast and beautiful, while it won't de-thrown Boxlife as my fav DSi game, it sure comes close. Great job Dev. team.

yodude commented on Improved Rhythm Core Alpha Hitting PAL Regions...:

Dear SoftEgg (Tim), Yes I agree with you I think yours is the most robust and easiest to pick up music application for the DS/DSi after many months of owning all 3 music programs.
If us NA's wanted a copy of the latest version, will there be away to get that update in the future?

Just downloaded, you get a lot of visuals for 200 points, I am not a fan of slots, but you get a lot of "package" for your money with this one. I would recommend this if you have an extra 200 points, and can't figure what else to get at this price point . 8/10 based on the strong visuals. Hopefully there will be a video poker version like this in the future.

yodude commented on Review: Everyday Soccer (DSiWare):

After reading gabikuns review above I tried to persuaded my son to pass on this game fearing it would be far to easy, but he insisted on downloading it anyway. Well I must say I am very happy he did. Both my son and I had only been able to score about 2-3 goals per game while the AI has averaged about 12 goals per game. The developers ramped up the gameplay difficulty level to create a very challenging game, which to me is a good thing. I will update this post later after we both have had a chance to play this game some more.

Real soccer is still the king of DSI soccer, but if you want a quick pick up and play game that will give you a hard time, this is worth checking out, far from perfect, but it is one of those games that you go "just one more try I know I can beat it".

Update 9/12/2010
I Finally purchased and must say I am very happy with this choice. There is a lot packed in here for the price. My only gripe is the sound quality which I felt was very poor, but given the fact that it is a download for 5 bucks I can live with that for what it offers in return.

Korg DS vs. Rytmik vs. Rhythm Core Alpha
Korg DS Plus - Requires the most amount of elbow grease to get something out of it that sounds good as a song. However it offers the best sound quality of the three app's and the best Retro Synth experience on the go. If you are an old Depeche Mode/Kraftwerk fan this probably will allow you to replicate something they did 20-25 plus years ago.

Rytmik - Great studio software piece with plenty of sample options to create with, I was quickly able to slap something together that sounded Trance/Techno-e in a short time. Sound quality was in the middle between the three, but offers the best GUI/visual of the 3.

Rhythm Core Alpha - Lots of fun out of the box, not the most pleasing on the eye or ears, but perhaps that was the only way to cram as much as they did into it. However, once I got going playing around with it my focus shifted to having fun, which I did do and feel I will do for some time. The sound quality was disappointing as if I do ever achieve greatness with it I could not do much with it beyond playing for family and friends. Worth noting is this I felt was similar to the Korg app, but comes with far much more preloaded sounds, but again suffers when it comes to the audio. For the price I really cant complain though.

Summary
If you plan on doing anything retro new wave or some of the top forty on the radio today, the Korg app is the way to go as it delivers excellent sound quality and actually sounds like what the one hit wonder Hip Hop artists of today are using or some of the greats from yesteryear did. If you want to mess around with sound samples and stitching a song together, then Rytmik is great. My recommendation is to grab all three for 3 different experiences and to support all developers.

Actually looks pretty good,,,,,,,,,,,
Update 9;12.2010
Downloaded the other day and glad I did. Lots of stuff packed into this $2 download, great aesthetics. I like this better then Jam Session as you can strum each string. Hopefully there will be an electric guitar version soon.

9 out of 10 for me, can't find any fault with this app.

yodude commented on Review: Rhythm Core Alpha (DSiWare):

Very interested in this, but can't find many samples online of what you can do with it by users (youtube etc.). I applaud the release of this but I think the demo the designer did as seen on Youtube is terrible. He should pull it and replaced with something a bit more convincing. Having said all this, I probably will purchase on next points purchase to support RCA as the designer put alot into this from what I can see.

yodude commented on Review: Spin Six (DSiWare):

A little disappointed with this entry, I feel it is more of a 6/10 then 8/10. When I downloaded it I was expecting a title similar to a PSP mini download called Numblast which is extremely addicting (imo). Perhaps after a bit more time I will see it in a different light, But for now 6/10.

yodude commented on Art Style: BOXLIFE:

This should have gotten a 10/10, probably the best all around DSiWare game to date. One of my first downloads many months ago and I seem to always come back to it.
