    Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?

    It might not be what you think. It's one of those games in which you only press one button and it does different things from one screen to the next. I've played a flash game once exactly like it, I wish I could remember what it was called.

    Anyway, the game looked good on screens, but there is little animation to speak of and the gameplay truly is that of a simple flash game.

    Hmm, that's a bit disappointing.

    You guys and your TheathRhythm talk. The summer has been expensive and so I'm holding off buying it.

    Youtube is my best friend right now.

    Man, at $3, both Mighty Switch Force and Kirby's Pinball Land are tempting. (edit: Though it looks like in the original link, KPL is $4)

    And Frogger Hype Action Arcade is only 7 bucks, as opposed to $10 on XBLA...but you also don't get the game in HD so I don't know. It looks so crisp in HD....And then I get the conundrum where I'm left with $3 on the WiiShop channel because I can't just buy the game for $7. Bagh. Either way I guess I'm spending $10.

    Guess I'll have to get Might Switch Force. I hadn't paid any attention to it before Gui's Wii U eShop thread last night. It never registered in my brain that it wasn't the same game as "Mighty Flip Champs."

    Guess I'm buying Mighty Switch Force. Truth be told, Shantae and Bloodrayne and Contra 4 left me somewhat cold on WayForward, but A Boy and His Blob restored some faith.

    I'm willing to give MSF a chance at $2.99. I downloaded VVVVVV a couple weeks ago without knowing much about it and ended up loving it.

    I thought Shantae and Contra 4 were excellent!

    MSF sale is perfect for this weekend. I work at a gym on Saturdays and Sunday's. Four hours each day. So playin this at work the next two days will be perfect.

    Kiby's Pinball Land is good. High score ~4700000 after a few runs. I don't like the "save ball / launch ball" mechanic though maybe it will grow on me once I get the timing right.

    WHAT. Contra 4 was freakin' AWESOME. So was Shantae. What is wrong with you?

    @anon_mastermind Yeah, be sure to go crazy on those bonus games. We used to have a lot of luck with the soccer one. I think that's the one in Poppy's level.

    I just booted up my old game and my bro's score of 12,000,000,000 is still at the top. Curses!
