    I'll never get why Nintendo is giving licences to rip-offs of their own games.

    Well, it fits. #2500, like many of the milestones, is shovelware.

    Shovelware as in "My standards are too high for a game, and I believe that every game should fit a single standard set by me and not the general consumer who actually BUYS games, therefore it's obviously shovelware" shovelware?

    Since it seems like that's the majority of what you people do, you just throw the term around without even attempting to play it, or knowing what the hell it's about.

    Wow, I'm impressed someone else anywhere actually ever played the game, because I think my parents picked it out of a $5 bin when they found it. That was immediately the connection I made when I saw this title.

    Indeed. I'm glad that someone can actually write sensibly on this forum. How many times do people have to write along the lines of;

    'Is this any good'
    'This will be crap'
    'yay, been waiting for this'

    And other comments where they are deciding whether or not to bother downloading a rom and trying it!! What the fuck is that all about?

    I swear some people have standard replies ready to cut and paste and post...

    Glad I got that off my chest.

    After I started programming for games and not just softwares, its really really hard for me to diss a game, even when I hate it, since I know what a hard job it is to program/work on a game.

    People who easily diss a game have no idea what it looks like programming on a game.

    Now instead of saying bad things without thinking, I say stuff like "they could work more about this" or "If they had more time, they would have delivered a better game".

    This game includes five types of puzzles/games:
    1) Sudoku
    2) Kakuro
    3) Go
    4) Shanghai/Mahjong
    5) Mastermind/Codebreaker

    I've tried their Sudoku and Kakuro, both pretty unreasonably unplayable since you cannot annotate squares -- there's no way to make notes on a per-square basis; either you enter a single value per square or leave it empty. there's a shared whitespace/notepad, but it's not enough space to realyl jot down all the notes you need to be practical.
