5 in 1 Mahjong Publisher: cerasus.media Players: 1 ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points Description: Play Standard mahjong without all the bells and whistles. You can choose from more than 300 layouts or try different variations of the game. In "Countdown," you only have 20 minutes to clear the tiles. With "Remember," you can train your memory as every tile is only briefly visible. Don't dally in "Shuffle" mode - the board will rebuild itself if you don't make a match in time. In "Match" you simply need to search for particular tiles. The tile images are strikingly sharp, making them easy to recognize. Choose your favorite tile design, plus enjoy the great soundtrack and high-quality animation that create an authentic gaming experience. Challenge yourself with a range of difficult layouts. If you are stuck, hints will help you out.

Liight so soon? Anyone going to download and give impressions?
I'm not completely sold on Plants vs. Zombies from what I've played of it, but it was fun, and my girlfriend loved it so... might have to pick it up. When I get a 3DS, because I have no DSi. I guess I could get the cartridge version on DS but that's $20 right?
I got it on the app store on my gf's phone for 3 bucks and I think that's a good price for it. The retail DS game has extra exclusive modes, but I don't know about this DSiWare release. This is the type of game you want to have on the hard drive, I think.
800 Nintendo Points is just $8, though, right? That makes it only a dollar more than the same game on PC, IIRC. Not that steep. Especially when you consider the retail release is $20, as is the price for the 360 version.
I wonder if it's the full game, or if some content had to be removed for the DSiWare version?
