Pinball madness!

It's time to take a look at the most popular DSiWare titles available on the DSi Shop. If you're feeling adventurous you can even take a look for yourself by simply logging on to the DSi Shop, heading into the DSiWare section and then viewing by "Popular Games". It's that easy!

We compile this list using the USA region DSi Shop, so if you live elsewhere your list will probably be quite a bit different. Please feel free to post your region's findings below as always.

Keep in mind that the list below is based on the total number of downloads made recently, not an overall total of downloads since the game's original release.

* [N] - Denotes a brand new entry in the Top 20
* [-] - Denotes a game that was not on the Top 20 last week

Well the top three games remain intact this week, with Flipnote Studio, the Nintendo DSi Browser, and MySims Camera holding on to the top three spots.

The big climber this week was Thorium Wars, which came from all the way off the chart completely last week all the way up to #9 this week. The big dropper award this week was a three-way tie between WarioWare: Snapped!, Art Academy: First Semester, and Clubhouse Games Express: Strategy Pack, all of which fell three spots on this week's Top 20.

We did see two new additions to the Top 20 this week, with the debuts of Thorium Wars at #9 and Pinball Pulse: The Ancients Beckon making its debut at #15 during the same week of its release.

With the two new additions this week came the inevitable falling off of two titles from the Top 20. Pop+ Solo and Master of Illusion Express: Deep Psyche both fell off of the chart this week. We'll just have to wait and see if they can manage a comeback.
