    So I looked on the DSi Shop and noticed I have 500 spare points laying around. I looked through the games list on Nintendo.com and Nintendo Life, and I found a few games that I think might be okay, but I can't decide what to do. Help!

    I currently have:

    Bookworm
    Cave Story (

    Well I don't have a DSi but if I did I'd get the Dragon Quest game or Rayman.

    Aura Aura Climber is good. I have DVC, it's not bad.

    The Dragon Quest game looks fun but I'm worried that it's too simple or that there are strategies that are broken. You know, the little things that you don't look for at first glance that end up ruining the experience later on.

    As for Rayman, I think it's the full original game as seen on the PS1/GBA. If it's a good price I might get it since I enjoyed the pared down GBC version.

    It's not on your list but I'll recommend it anyway: Pictobits.

    Best puzzle game I ever played. Better than Tetris.

    I took a look at that and even watched some gameplay. I'm not sure I get it. It definitely looks neat, though. I'm looking around at other Art Style games, and Kubos looks like it might be fun. Have you played other Art Style games?

    Well it'd best to download the wad and try it out before making a decision. That or try the free PC version.

    Shantae is by far the best deal to make on DSiware, hell even over retail games on DS.

    I picked up Glow Artisan for now, but I'm probably gonna nab Shantae and Dragon Quest Wars next.

    One question I have about Pictobits: does it have to be a 2x2 square, or can you make other shapes? If it's just 2x2 squares, that's a bit too easy for me.
