If you’ve purchased a game Nintendo has published in the last year or so, odds are you’ve collected some Club Nintendo coins. They’re on a sheet in the game box, next to the instruction manual. Go ahead and look. I’ll wait.
You’re back with your points, right? Good. You can take those, redeem them on your Club Nintendo account and grab some pretty good downloadable games this month. See, every month Nintendo has three or four downloadable games people can put their coins towards. The four May 2012 games are up and this month you might be tempted to actually part with your coins for them.
The first two are for 3DS owners. For 150 coins you can get either 3D Classics: Urban Champion or Art Style: PiCTOBiTS. One’s an NES brawler updated with 3D graphics and the other is a puzzle game where you drop colored blocks to make pictures on the top screen. Redeem your coins and you’ll get the code for it. Unfortunately, Art Style: PiCTOBiTS is not available for DSi owners to claim with coins, even though it is a DSiWare game. Urban Champion and Art Style: Pictobits are $4.99 each if you actually buy them from the eShop.
The other two items are WiiWare games. One’s Nintendo’s Snowpack Park for 150 coins and the other is Eco Shooter: Plant 530 for 200 coins. Snowpack Park is a simulation game involving penguins and I’m pretty sure you can all tell that Eco Shooter is a shooting game involving destroying trash aliens. If you bought them, they’d cost $8 and $10, respectively.
Personally, I’d recommend Art Style: PiCTOBiTS. You can’t really go wrong with an Art Style game and PiCTOBiTS is one of the series’ best.
