    I was wondering if anyone had some shovelware/budget titles games that they actually liked?

    For example, Cradle of Rome provided some decent entertainment

    I like Ninjabread Man & Jurassic The Hunted because they're so badly done they're funny.

    Always cheer me up.

    Most of the Puzzle games are actually pretty decent. Luxor & Luxor 3 are very addicting so is Groovin Blocks. The others aren't really worth the money.

    Professor (can't remeber name)'s Gravity is pretty good, would not pay money for it though. as it's just a flash game in disguise. A good one, but still a flash game nonetheless

    Is the name Heinzwolf or something?

    Anyway, about Puzzle Quest, that's not shovelware. Yes, the Wii version is the worst of them all, but the game is fucking amazing on the DS at least.

    There was that one game, I think it was called Maestro Jump in Music or something was really fun and shovelware. It was EU only if I remember correctly.

    EDIT: How dumb am I! That was a DS game!

    Maestro wasn't shovelware though. It had some pretty decent hype around it and it was made quite well. I thought it was kinda meh but others really liked it.

    Probably not shovelware, but some of the multiplatform titles that the Wii gets the short end of the stick for are kinda fun. Like Force Unleashed. I thought it was fun.

    How about that shovelware release spinoff of Anno 1701 called Dawn of Discovery? I heard it just was a shoveled up port of the 2nd DS release even with scaled up visuals and junk. I also heard it's good if you're into Anno, but still the shovel was digging on that one.

    Wii's Anno is actually a decent game, it's a little dumbded down, but no shovelware.
    Mercury Meltdown and all other marble games really can't get my attention, but if you're into the genre, it's probably your thing

    People are definitely confused about what Shovelware is. Puzzle Quest & Anoo are definitely NOT shovelware.
