    Why hasn't Nintendo got on the ball with the whole WiiWare thing?

    These kinds of games are decent. Especially if free, which scene releases are.

    I really liked the DS game. I wonder how this one will be on the Wii [​IMG] I'll go check some screenies [​IMG]

    And yeah, this should've been WiiWare [​IMG]

    It works on my Pal Wii (with Wiikey 1.9)

    It's off course very shovelwarish, but it's good fun nonetheless. I wouldn't pay more than 10 pounds for this though, because it's an exact port of the PC version.
    But anyway this is better than 90% of the other Wii releases.

    Zuma is fun, I have that on my phone. Might as well give this game a try.

    Zuma on the DS = Magnetica (formerly known as Puzzle loop)

    The only difference with Luxor is that the ball pedal ALWAYS slides at the bottom, while in Zuma you can rotate the ball to shoot in all directions. Zuma is a bit more frenzic!

    Can you save your profile in this game or sth. like that?

    Because in Bust a move it was not possible.

    And it should be possible to save at least the highscores.

    Magnetica is much more fun on the DS.

    Yeah it saves perfectly. And you can create different profiles too.

    I somehow find this Wii version much more fun than the PC version. It's probably because of the Wiimote control. I just prefer that control scheme.

    Works on a PAL Wii dc2key but only on English language setting (maybe Spanish to?).

    I like these kind of games and this ones works wonderfully with the remote!

    I enjoy these kinds of games too. Mainly on consoles. Not into them with PC or handhelds.

    This and Zuma are reasonably similar. If you like one, the other is just about a given. [​IMG]

    Thank you for the reply [​IMG]

    In the meantime i tried it myself and i like this game, nearly as hard as my wife [​IMG] She played it a lot at the PC and now she don´t have to turn on the PC to play this addictive game. I created a profile for my wife and me, so that we can play seperatly.

    And berlinka is absolutely right by saying that this game is better than 90% of the other Wii releases.

    As strange as it sounds, I play this game more than, let's say Metroid Prime Corruption. It's probably because I'm turning more and more into a "casual gamer" (allthough I try EVERY game that is supposed to be "allright").
    This type of game is just something you pop in at the end of the day, when craving for some brainless ball shooting mayhem.

    PS: What did you mean with "As hard as my wife"??? [​IMG]

    So basically what you say is your wife loves these games and you like them too but not that much like your wife love these games because she loves these games MUCH more than you will ever love any game, because she knows how to love a lovable game like this while you love it just a bit, while in fact you love it a lot, but compared to the amount of love your wife has for this game, your love is just marginal compared with how much she loves this lovely game, which actually is a game I also love very much (allthough probably not as much as your wife loves this game)
