    Sooo Wiiware is becoming as big a garbage dump as the retail Wii games now? Not that I've read about or played this yet...

    It actually looks like a decent little puzzler and it's far better suited to Wiiware than sticking it on a disk - THAT would be garbage [​IMG]

    Not really there has been some good quality games on there in the last month or so:
    Strong Bad, Wild West guns, TV Game Show, Gyrostarr, My Aquarium, Midnight Pool & MaBoShi.

    This doesn't look too bad either.

    In front of the PC
    Looks like a Collapse clone. I like collapse but I'm hurting for room.

    When I first saw this I thought it would be crud. Though the video really looks convincing enough.
    Not my kinda game, my head hurts when playing these combo building style games.
    Tetris is easier for me strangly.

    It reminds me of Columns but with music and basic looking blocks.
    Plus the music isn't too bad and its on sync.
    Though for a wiiware game I'd love to see custom music via SD card but oh well.

    Definitly better looking quality than a majority of games.

    I think I'll try it out a little.

    The game is basically Columns/Dr Mario or similar but you get multipliers if you complete rows in time to the music... There is a HUGE issue for me though, the blocks are quite small and it uses numerous similar colours which is no use to those of us (is it 1 in 12?) that have some form of colour blindness.

    Had they used more distinctive colours or larger blocks it would be a fun little game but I simply *can't* play it [​IMG]

    Look in the options... There is an option for turning the colourblind mode on which I find useful.
