I really have to buy a DSi...

I've had my white DSlite for about three years now, and I've been very happy with it. I have to say, though, that I've been feeling a bit of "DSi envy" thanks to all of the promising looking DSiWare titles that have been released in the past few months--such the Art Academy and Art Style games, Dragon Quest Wars, Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again and Mighty Flip Champs

That feeling intensified this morning when I became aware of (a bit late, I admit) GoodbyeGalaxyGames' Flipper.

Here's how designer Hugo Smits, who apparently has yet to meet an exclamation point he doesn't like, described the DSiWare title when it was announced earlier this year:

"One day our hero wakes up to find his goldfish, Flipper, is missing! It's up to you to find his goldfish and, more importantly, find out how it went missing in the first place! Use cool power-ups to modify the landscape to your advantage. There’s a wall in your path ? Blow it up! Can’t reach something? Build a staircase or platform to stand on!"

It all looks and sounds a bit Scribblenauts-ish to me, which means, of course, that it now appears on my "buy as soon as I get a DSi" list :)

Ha ha :) I probably shouldn't have made fun of Mr. Smits, but I couldn't help myself (and I really didn't mean anything by it).

thanks for the blogpost anyway!

Oh, I was just teasing - I didn't mean anything by it. Anyway, I'm really looking forward to the game - that's all that matters, right? :)
