May Be the Best Two Bucks You Spend on a Game

User Rating: 9.5 | Aura-Aura Climber DS
Like a lot of folks, when the eShop hit the 3DS I wanted to sample some of the DSiWare I'd missed. After asking around, Aura-Aura Climber kept getting thrown out there, and for $2 (and published by Nintendo) I felt it deserved a look.

Aura-Aura is kind of an old-school-style arcade game that really packs an amazing punch for such a cheap title. You play as a little sun-drop-type...thing, and the object is to jump from one hold to another. There's constantly new obstacles and hold types being introduced, and there's both a healthy challenge and plenty of content for the asking price.

Visually, it's a pretty game to look at, and it also features crisp, enjoyable sound effects and music. There are two modes, plus records for high scores. For $2, it's a no-brainer -- definitely a great go-to game everyone should have on their system.
