Only played the demo so far--but I must admit.. really fun, and really addictive. The price of 15$USD does seem a bit high for my tastes though. I dunno--maybe if it was 12$USD or 10$USD I would have less hesitation to buy >.>

Especially when I am not certain if this really would do much to give event Pokemon to my other games.

Fifteen was a bit high, you're right. I bought it and although yes I agree it's definitely one of Wiiware's best titles to offer, definitely in the top fifteen, it still... Eh, I suppose the only way to describe it is "still only just a Wiiware game."
You know--I would love a Wiiware game, that could be called "only just a Wiiware game" and have it mean about as much as Agent Smith calling Neo "only just a human" in the Matrix movies.

I mean--I am fairly certain that the bar can be raised a lot higher than it has been.
I do too, and quite frankly, again, for fifteen dollars I was expecting a little bit more. Because unless I'm mistaken, the only other game in the entire Wiiware library that is fifteen dollars is My Life as a King, and that one I think was at least worth it (or could have been, if the extra downloadable content wasn't also ten-fifteen dollars).

To be perfectly honest, I would rather had paid fifteen dollars for Lost Winds and its sequel, I would have paid fifteen for Swords & Soldiers if it had online play, and if the game called Jungle Speed had online I probably would have paid up to twenty. God that one is addicting.
Aaand... just tried the Bit.Trip Beat demo... it is only 6$USD... bit well... this one... I _would_ pay 15$USD for... aaaand... getting the shakes from not playing again... o.o'
I have all three of them, Trip, Core, and Void. They're all extremely awesome and ridiculously challenging.
This is a good example of giving a demo of an awesome game... and starting an addiction...

I mean, I likely would have never tried these games if not for the demos... and now... I am addicted...
Yeah that has happened to me a couple times, the main example being Jungle Speed. Apart from the demo part, since they don't have a demo for it. But Jungle Speed is a Wiiware game they've had out for quite awhile and I had never even heard of it, I didn't even remember seeing it. Then I came across it one time and I just decided to buy it on a whim because it was cheap. I got so addicted so fast. If it had online play, I seriously would probably play it all day. Such a missed opportunity there.

Swords and Soldiers was another one that I, frankly, wasn't expecting much but got addicted quickly.
@TheTot you know--if somebody at Wii Shop were to read this thread... they may get quite the devilish idea =O

I dunno--next pay cheque, I will be buying all three Bit.Trip Games... I wonder if I will ever see the sky again after that day XD
