    Any suggestions? Including eshop, seeing as I don't think there are that many among the retail releases.

    Already got Captain Toad, which I like a lot, as well as Poncho which is pretty good and Toki Tori which is alright. Oh and Pullblox World which I haven't played yet, but I like the 3DS games.

    It's more of a puzzle to find a good wii u game.

    If you like point and click games that Dracula one is pretty nice.

    on the cool side of the pillow
    I can recommend EDGE and Little Inferno. RUSH is somewhat good too

    Typoman might be worth checking out too.

    I skipped out on most indie Wii U games because they were digital-only.

    Did you like the captain toad game? Or rather, do you like the adventure puzzle game, or click-adventure puzzle game, or just any and all?

    Captain toad is pretty good. Not too challenging but fun while it lasts.

    Teslagrad
    Blek
    Shadow Puppeteer

    I loved Captain Toad. I also like classic point & click adventures (like from the '90s), I'm addicted to Picross, I love the Pushmo & BoxBoy series, so yeah I'm probably open to most types of puzzle games.

    It may not be a wii u game, but if you like puzzle games, you should really play The Witness. Wow.

    Too easy of a game and its originality and creativity ends on the first book.

    Still enjoyed it, and I haven't quite finished off the bonus book yet.

    Yeah I'm interested, vaguely waiting to see if there'll be a mac version.

    Cool! Enjoy it. My advice is to do your best to avoid spoilers. Just browsing around the blog I saw one (fortunately I already played the game!).

    THE CAVE, one of the best puzzle games i've ever played on wii u... I've played better on onther platforms but... on wii u, i think it is the best avaliable...

    watch some gameplays on youtube and check it out if you like it... sometimes you really get stuck on something and when you solve it, you really feel grateful of yourself haha

    The game has a really dark atmosphere and also some morallity from the dark desires within ourselves... what we are capable of doing to get something we desire.

    EDIT: before buying, i saw a guy on the forum posting his game stoped working after updating the nand to 5.5.1 U, I have the game on the same nand version and I'll test it as soon as I get home and then i'll report back to you guys.

    Thanks, yeah The Cave has been one I've been meaning to try out for a while, I installed the demo but didn't try it yet - maybe because I was just using the gamepad and not the tv when I meant to try it. Will give it a go sometime!

    Yup, if you do not start the game or not select the players, you won't see anything on the gamepad screen but "the cave" logo

    ;D try it out... if you like puzzle games, you'll like this one... my girlfriend kept me up all night waking me up everytime asking how did I just solve some puzzles haha good game
