I recently purchased Bejeweled 2 and have to say it is the best version yet |D
It even has Mii support and a global leaderboard |D

I'll have to check that out then Megatron2000. Although, I've never actually experienced any Bejeweled titles before. Would you say it's better than Burn the Rope? Weren't you the one who commented on it before?

Bejeweled 2 got a 9/10 at Nintendo Life if I am not mistaken mate :-)

Aussiegamer, how much of a task is it to find employment in Australia? I can't afford any of these at the moment, because I'm unemployed.

Wow, I might contemplate on traveling in your direction then. I love the wilderness a lot, Australia seems like a very unique place to reside and your women are hot. I wonder how much a plane ticket would run me? lol

I understand why you'd think that, but finding ways to open up new paths and hiding-shelters is light puzzling in my opinion, considering that the biggest part of the game is exploring and first person shooting.

Metroid Prime is similiar in some ways and I don't see Metroid Prime as a puzzle game either despite the fact that it has more puzzles than Elebits. Zelda is another good example, it has plenty of great puzzles spread throughout the game but these don't make Zelda a puzzle game. It's still an action-adventure.

My definition of a puzzle game is easy to understand: A puzzle game needs to have a main focus on puzzles... not exploring, first person shooting, or adventuring.

You're correct about Aya and The Cubes of Light and Hydroventure falling under the platformer puzzler genre, but it's title in NA is Fluidity not Hydroventure and I think I prefer Fluidity.

I prefer Hydroventure, dunno why. Got used to it. Smile

And SKTTR, if you consider Tetris Party, Mr. Driller W and ThruSpace as puzzler titles, then why would you not consider Arkanoid as a puzzler? I deleted Arkanoid from the list anyways.

The mentioned games all have a heavy focus on their puzzle elements, while in Arkanoid it's all about speed and hitting the ball with the right angle, typical for the block breaker genre which is merely arcade action. There's not much strategy to it and not much to think about. If you consider this a puzzle game because of the little bit of thinking involved, then everything is a puzzle game, because even the simplest platformers and action games require more puzzling and thinking than what you'd find in Arkanoid Plus! Think about it. Razz

I still love Arkanoid, it's a great game and the best in the block breaker genre on WiiWare.

Although, I will add Tetris Party to my list of puzzlers, when I can think of the rating I'd award it. I have been contemplating on purchasing the Art Style titles, but I really think I'd want to purchase Burn the Rope before anything else.

Burn the Rope would be high on my list of puzzle priorities if it was available here.

Always good to see people with different opinions and while I welcome the fact that is has online leaderboards and Mii support, I thought the lack of a save option in the endless mode, the lack of local and online multiplayer altogether, and some annoying parts of its soundtrack, plus that it came so late (the much better Bejeweled 3 was out on PC's already by the time B2 was released on WW) were really lowering the experience. Also, you get puzzle games on WiiWare with more content for 1000pts. At the core it's still a good and addicting puzzle game, that's why I scored it a 6/10. A 6 ain't bad, it's better than mediocre, it's decent, but leaves plenty of room for improvement. Just explaining my personal score in a few sentences.

I'm really sorry to hear that SKTTR, I hope Nintendo localizes Burn the Rope in your region soon. The Art Style titles are on my wishlist as well, they seem to have a lot of character and the gameplay really interests me a lot. So all in all, Burn the Rope would still have to be my first download priority and then the Art Style titles would have to follow before anything else. Although, I still have Mr. Driller W on my radar as well. In my opinion it's no wonder why there are so many puzzlers available on the WiiWare service, they're awesome and everyone should have at least a few of them in their WiiWare collection. (<:

I really hope I can find some way to afford these puzzlers, before the end up being pulled from the WiiWare service too. It would be a complete shame if I never have the chance to experience them for myself. )<:
