    It would need a different name, and it's too simple to be a Wii game, you're speaking of filling a disc of perhaps 5GB minimum of information, whereas this game would take a maximum of 1GB done extermely sloppily with decent graphics.

    This game to become a Wii game would need
    1)Graphic overhaul
    2)Some extra features and modes
    3)Ways to share things

    Then it could probably be candidate for a VC release at most. I mean seriously... even the Simple series that are extremely small-minded have more than this. >:|

    I will agree that the game is not well suited for retail, but it is an excellent choice as a wiiware title.

    The fundamentals of the game are great. That is the selling point. (Geometry Wars on XBL, Flow or echochrome on PSN)
    I do agree that if the game were to come to the wii it would need to take advantage of what the wii can offer both with graphics and online.

    I'd definitely buy it, but mostly cause I've played it now. I doubt it would appeal to many as wiiware as is though, except again... those who have tried it.

    It's kind of like Cave Story. People who don't talk to others much might see it and be like "Meh, looks alright" but if you either A)REALLY know games B)REALLY like old school games or C)Know people who have played it. Chances are you will delve into one of the best games ever.

    why not just make it in to a homebrew?

    I could see that as a $10 WiiWare purchase

    I can see it becoming a wiiware release, but it would still need all the things Pyrofyr brought up.

    But wait, why wouldn't it work right now with the Opera browser?

    Just completed it. Fun the first time, but I wouldn't spend 10 bucks on it.

    A homebrew clone might be cool.

    As is, it is way too short. The addition of levels as well as a level editor would be ideal. The game as it is now is not what I'm looking forward to, but the potential behind the concept.
