    So i found a cheap cubic ninja on the store shelves and it's new and sealed for 30 € I kind of want to try the game but i also kind of want it for trying out ninjahax. Is it worth it?

    I remember paying way more for a copy when it was the only entry-point so for that its a decent price, as for a game it's kinda weird

    Only the Japanese version was ever sold digitally (and you want the physical one just for the cover art)

    Earth, bro-dude.
    I'd buy it to re-sell it.

    I wouldn't buy it to be honest.
    I have it and two copies of Freaky Forms Deluxe (wanted to give it to a friend who is anti-hacking to enable him to at least backup his saves).
    Plutoo didn't update it since 11.1 so those games have no worth at all now...
    You can buy a preflashed flashcard for little money and have homebrew via rosalina even with all the ARM11 and ARM9 services available to change the internal RTC etc...
    The only use case was to get from userland->ARM11->ARM9 but now they have this unpatchable ARM9 exploit directly from boot, it is not comparable.
    Getting Cubic Ninja is only nice from a collector's perspective, the game is bad, having only a userland exploit is pretty meh and a preflashed flashcard is probably around the same price.

    I only played some levels at the start because I deleted the save a lot for different payloads but the motion controls were not that enjoyable in those gaming sessions.
    Smea also said in one tweet he didn't like it that much, I trust his expertise for later parts of the game.

    I played the first world while waiting for a good deal on a 2DS, wasn't bad but a little tedious and not worth the full retail price (I paid 10 € so who cares lol)

    Its a fun launch era puzzle title. I bought mine for like $5 used the day that ninjhax was announced, but I probably only played the game proper for an hour or so and haven't played it since. I wouldn't say its worth paying $30 though for just the game at this point.

    I've got two copies of it myself. Funny enough, I bought the used one for $13, and a brand new one sealed later for $5. I still have them both because of the nostalgia for when homebrew first released on the 3DS. Reminds me of when I first was creating my Piano homebrew. (I wonder who all remember that)

    Anyway, as far as gameplay goes, I think it's worth a try. And if you already played it through the freeshop and liked it, why not go for it? that way you are being legit :P

    As others said, and I can relate, you will probably only play it for an hour or so before never picking it up again. Granted, every few months I will pick it up just to play the first level and then never touch it again for another few months.
