Quick thoughts on Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move

I've been directing charming Nintendo wind-up toys to the goal in Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move on the 3DS eShop. Here are some thoughts on the game.

Nintendo could have released this game at retail for a much higher price than $9.99. It is jam-packed with content, featuring more than 180 stages and several sets of mini-games. It also comes with a level creator, offering up endless replayability since you can create your own puzzles and play what others have created online.

Dragging path tiles onto the grid with the stylus is very responsive, even during the more hectic times where a lot is going on. The visuals on the top screen are nice, but you'll hardly ever look at them since all of your attention will be on the bottom screen. Sadly, they feel kind of wasted.
