    Wario Ware?

    Is that out on the GBA? I saw one of the lads playing it awhile back and it looked pretty pick up ‘n play…

    What about Metal Slug Advance? great game, but pretty pricey still uness you can find it second hand. My two cents.

    Yeah, something like Wario would be perfect, but I’ve played that too.

    it’s quick to understand, addictive and it’s free :D well you need a flash cart though…

    d’oh, sorry. 10-15 minutes play at a time. Want something to do during full compiles.
    rpg’s don’t fit what i’m looking for ( and I’ve played most of them :) )
    wario – played
    zoo keeper – its a web game, i’m not paying for it!
    atomix – think i played that back in uni.

    Astroboy is pretty good, its a tenner in game at the minute, you can play through it multiple times and its hard as a rock in some places.

    I used to play Ecks vs Server alot, always wanted to try Ecks vs Server 2…

    2d Puzzler… ummm, Wario Ware is a quick kind of puzzler, also Super Monkey Ball got good reviews a while back…

    Ive always wanted Zelda The Minish Cap… but never got round to buyin it…

    Mr Driller 2!!!!!!

    Excellent little character puzzle game : D

    Maybe you’ve played it but , anyway, you dig a pathway down through a formation of coloured blocks (prebuilt in a Tetris-sy way), try not to get squashed as the blocks above you drop into new positions and collect air along the way to the bottom (else turn blue and die in as cute a way possible)

    Very challenging and fast paced. twitchy like Monkeyball but not nearly as stressful

    It’s the bees knees

    Indeed, I have Mr. Driller for the PC and its always good for a quick break in between coding sessions!
