The best and worst of DSiWare

Nintendo's handheld download service is a year old. How's it done so far?

Developer: Suzak
Price: 200 points (each)

Above: This one is slightly less of a ripoff than the others

Why it’s one of the worst: The words “mediocre cash-grab” spring to mind. You get to control the cuddly-cute wrecking machine Domo (a pop-culture figure in Japan and, to a much smaller extent, the US) through various adventures, from white-water rafting to becoming a rock star. Each game by itself is terribly gimmicky, and the design of some is awful. Rock-n-Roll Domo was particularly bad; picture a way crappier version of Dance Dance Revolution, with only five songs and three arrows. Pro-Putt Domo is at least halfway decent, but averaged out, this series is decisively terrible.
