    I see where you guys are coming from, but the devs themselves are calling it a game ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    There are success/fail conditions and a scoring system, so it's justified in being called a game imo.
    I can also understand it being called a tool or utility, but I suppose that's not as marketable.

    It's not exactly a game, so you people acting high and mighty need to step down. You look stupid. Also, Zoogie, the devs call it a game, but it's also referred to as an application.
     
  4. I wonder if it will ever be dumped

    This is a game in the same way that the UNIX fortune program is a game. It tries to be fun, but in the end it's a utility program.

    I highly doubt it. What pirate in their right mind would pay $100 for an inaccurate eye-checking tool? Go to a fucking doctor. It'll cost less after insurance.

    It's a cute idea I suppose. But it's entirely pointless over just going and getting your eyes checked properly.

    No doubt that someone will make a homebrew version of this.

    I saw this on the eshop yesterday and honestly thought they intended to write 9,99 but mistyped the price

    I never said it was, I just said it’s surprising Nintendo would allow this.

    If someone feels misdiagnosed because of this, I wouldn’t be surprised if Nintendo are involved in the lawsuit in some way.

    What kind of optometrist are you seeing? I've used the same one for nearly twenty years, and visits alone are exponentially cheaper than this. A six month supply of contacts is even cheaper than this.

    Interesting.
    I remember discovering there's a Japanese eshop "game" called EYERESH which is apparently designed to exercise your stereoscopic vision using the console's 3D. There never seemed to be a dump of it back when I was looking, don't know if anyone would have got to it more recently.

    Would this even be reliable considering it's a 240p screen?

    And fact they don't warn you that you need the 3D feature is a jerkass move.
