Pokemon Shuffle is out

by Tanooki Thu Feb 19, 2015 11:05 am

That free to play puzzle game where it generates another puzzle every 15-30min(whatever it is) after the five stored hearts(turns) are up is online as of this morning. I just grabbed it. If anyone wants a free to play puzzle it's worth grabbing. It eats a little under 700 blocks on the SD card.

I knew about this yesterday. I'm gonna get it, but one half of me is scared it's going to be similar to games like Candy Crush Saga, where they spam you with, "Oh, you wanna play more? Here ya go! Pay a dollar and play some more!".

Then again, it's free. You can't go wrong with free stuff. :lol:
This user really likes SEGA Saturn. Avoid at all costs.

Haven't played this yet but also on the eshop is another Pokemon matching game called Pokemon Trozei (for I think $10 or less). So if you've gotta match 'em all and don't want to deal with f2p shenanigans there's a premium game alternative.

Daughter and I are going through this together. We aren't paying anything, haven't used our jewels yet either. We're on stage 35 or some such and have three we haven't been able to capture yet; Torchic, Riolu, and Rotom though we haven't done well on the Expert stages either. It's certainly got its issues but we're having fun with it and for free I can't complain too much.

Been playing through it, my thoughts:

- Its FREE woooo...
- Has filthy overpriced micro-transactions for jewels, like $10 a jewel?
- Limited time Mew to catch, but ive only managed to take him down once, and had like a 14% chance to catch him, didnt catch him
- If it wasnt for this being on the 3DS, and was on Android/iOS instead, im sure no one would of acknowledged its existence
- Nintendo should just start releasing games like this on Android/iOS, we dont need this clutter on the eShop

Every 5 - 10 levels you get a free jewel (5 Hearts).

Currently I am on level 96 and I have not paid a penny.

EDIT: It also does this every once in awhile, never took a single shot, got this combo without playing a piece. (and won the stage)

I burned an hour into this last night - as mentioned above, it's the perfect Nintendo f2p Candy Crush spin-off.

Started playing this today. It's lovely and a decent game to pick up for a few minutes and beat a few stages.
