Around the Network

1001 Spikes - very fun title, lots of challenge

Abyss - decent budget title, slight learning curve

Armillo - an okay action/puzzle/platformer, wait for it to go on sale

BIT.TRIP Presents... Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien - one of the best Wii U games, period.

Blok Drop U - great idea, cheap, fun while it lasts (it's quite short)

Bombing Bastards - as good as a Bomberman clone will ever get, can be quite difficult

Castle Storm - Awesome tower defense

Coaster Crazy Deluxe - despite the odd freeze, fun objective-based roller coaster sim

Color Zen - a puzzle game designed to relax the player, use headphones for full effect

Cubemen 2 - tower defense meets Minecraft, creat and share levels, fun new online title

EDGE - really fun budget title, gameplay splices the fundamentals of Marble Madness and seemingly certain aspects of...Tony Hawk? Yeah.

GEOM - a decent budget time killer

The Fall - Excellent game. Think Super Metroid meets point-and-click adventure. A must have.

Giana Sisters - A great revival of a quintessential Commodore 64 series. They even brought back the original composer (dat soundtrack)

Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition - Very entertaining MetroidVania title - less whips and guns, more suplexes!

How to Survive - while lacking online on the Wii U version, a fun Diablo clone-turned Survival Horror.

Ice Cream Surfer - A shoot em up (or in this case, a cute em up) gameplay feels broken, a patch would work wonders for this

Internal Invasion - had I known this was going to be an Angry Birds kinda game, I wouldn't have bought it. Serves me right.

Knytt Underground - Fun adventure-based MetroidVania, good story, great atmosphere

Kung Fu Rabbit - decent action/puzzle game, check it out if it's on sale

Little Inferno - a very memorable interactive story, beautiful artwork, great underlying message

Master Reboot - better than expected, first person adventure/horror title, pretty good story

Monkey Pirates - very fun as a multiplayer game, not worth it if you're going to play it alone

Mutant Mudds Deluxe - Fantastic action/platformer, has a look and feel akin to Commander Keen, recommended

Nano Assault Neo - one of the first eShop titles, still one of the best, beautiful visual effects

Poker Dice Solitaire Future - another decent budget time killer

Pure Chess - ....it's chess, really good graphics, cross platform play with pc and mobile users

Rush! - Awesome puzzle game, and a really good price point, bonus points for it sharing the same name with an awesome band.

Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Wheels - steep learning curve, but the gameplay is blissful once you figure it out

Shovel Knight - a quintessential title for any Nintendo consumers collection

Shut the Box - shut your wallets, despite its low price, it ain't worth your time or money

Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party - a must-have if you enjoy party games - the game is designed to focus on participants, not the TV

SteamWorld Dig - refer to Shovel Knight

Stick it to the Man - awesome point-and-clickish adventure

Super Toy Cars - THIS GAME SUCKS; AVOID AT ALL COSTS

Swords & Soldiers HD - Refer to Shovel Knight

Teslagrad - great game design, beautiful artwork and animations (which is all that's needed to tell its story) get it now

Toki Tori - one of my fave puzzle games ever, great price

Toki Tori 2+ - fun in its own right, still not as good as the original

Unepic - a true MetroidVania clone worth playing, funny dialogue, inventory management on the gamepad helps the flow of the title

Wooden Sen'SeY - another fun action/platformer

XType+ - really addictive dual-stick Bullet Hell title with online leaderboards

ZaciSa's Last Stand - very deep and challenging tower defense style game (it'll kick your ass)



None.



Shovel Knight will be my only one once it releases here in europe.
I buy most of the stuff on PC.

Now that is someone who knows his games

None so far.

Shovel Knight ain't available in the European eShop yet (but it's available on Steam for months). Since it's released for WiiU & 3DS here, it's probabley already in a Steam-sale or indie-bundle for the fraction of the eShop-price.

Most of the other good eShop-games I already have for another system (PS+, PSN-Sales, many of them cross-buy for home consoles + Vita; Steam-sales and indie bundles).



On wii u this year...

Scram kitty                - A very good and diffrent platform shoot em up. A steep learning cure and strange inaccessible gameplay mean it's not for everyone but I've put a fair number of hours into it keep returning to it. 

Armillo                       - A good platformer. Ruff around the edges. Feels almost like it's an early attempt at a 3d platformer from the n64/ps1 era and feels like a fullgame from that era.

Stick it to the man    - Exceptional. In my top ten adventure games and it's also an interesting platformer to boot.

Guacamelee              - Very good, but to my mind not the exceptionally great game some people think it is. A good platformer but not really much of a metroidvania. Unravel the path you take and make it a strange left to right game like Mario and it wouldn't change the gameplay much. It's not got the sense of exploration you get from a good metroidvaina. I'd say it's as much of a metroidvainia as something like Wonderboy 3 the dragons trap.

Xtype+                        - Good and has soaked up a lot of hours very quickly. Addictive in an almost flappy bird like way but a deeper game. Sadly no off tv mode. For the price an excellent buy.

Abyss                          - A very simple game but OK for a very short diversion.

Toki Tokki 2+             - reasonably good puzzle platformer.

I bought one indie game on 3ds this year.. Cave Story 3d and it wipes the floor with almost all the above. A truley great metroidvainia.



Let me see...

Nano Assault Neo - very pretty twin-stick shooter. A bit too short but I like it.

Trine 2 - I need to get back into this. It's fun, I've just been playing other stuff.

Child of Light - I love the use of the UbiArt Framework in this game. Feels like I'm playing a book of fairy tales.

Scram Kitty & His Buddy On Rails - Interesting mechanics. It's really challenging though.

Shovel Knight - Fantastic game. The team at Yacht Club Games really knows what they're doing when it comes to replicating the best parts of 8-bit games.

Guacamelee! STCE - Neat Metroidvania game, it's been a while since I've played one. I dig the sense of humor.
