As my router has developed the shakes - again DAMN YOU! - I have yet to get hold of this. More F2P Pokémon goodness, though - and so close to Shuffle. Meh

There's also a spending limit: http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/3DS/Pokemon+Rumble+World/news.asp?c=64781, which is a lovely idea.

I've played a bit off it,

it's okay nothing else, with so much more I can play on the 3DS I can't see me playing much more then what I've played.

Yeah, I've enjoyed what I've played of it thus far - it's not mindblowingly good, but for a F2P release, I'm happy enough.

The spending limit is great news too. I don't plan to spend any money on this either, but it's encouraging to see Nintendo tackling the F2P market with a bit more integrity than most developers. The bulk of the game is still behind a freemium wall - you have to spend gems to unlock a new set of Pokemon to catch - but at least they aren't trying to milk you for everything.

I don't know what I think yet.. I like the rumble games and yet I'm not jumping at this one. I've done a couple of levels brought a ballon to go somewhere and then went back to shuffle

Just downloading this now. Honestly I expect it to work much better in F2P than in retail form. Previous incarnations have been the dictionary definition of shallow.

It certainly is pretty shallow, but you're right in saying that it fits the F2P model quite nicely - you'll never be playing for longer than 15/20 mins at a time, making it perfect for the F2P model and circumvents the issues that would have came with this if it was a full retail release.

I downloaded it for the 5 consoles, so at least they will talk to each other and add some currency to use. I certainly can't be arsed playing it on all 5, so I will stick to the one and do the basics on the other 4. I do quite like it after playing it for a while, but like Shuffle, I am not prepared to spend money, so if I can't progress, I just don't play. It is a worthwhile diversion.

I've been able to make steady progress, as the game gives you the chance to get about 13 gems per day from daily challenges, and you'll get a few here and there from inviting people to your game.

Speaking of which, there's a load of free gems on offer for adding friends and having them visit your gameworld - anyone got any idea how to do that?

Downloaded it because... Free but can't imagine I'll give it much time, after playing the last 2 in the series I'm all rumbled out.

I had Cappa turn up over Spotpass, which netted me ten free gems from the shop.

If you haven't added me already, could you fine GNamer folks add me? It seems the more friends you have pop up over Spotpass, the more free gems you'll get. My FC is: 4313 - 2199 - 6994

I had Stu and Shanks turn up on mine.

I do like this, but I don't have much time to play it.

It's fast losing its novelty for me. Meh

I might stop playing this soon.

I'm starting to hate the fact that I have to use jewels for everything.. I want the free roam from the older game

Same. It gets old fast, doesn't it? The fact that Pokémon are so disposable in this makes it seem less worth anything that the monsters at your disposal in Shuffle.

Agreed Stu. The novelty has worn off very quickly, sadly. It's an issue with the game itself which is only enhanced by the F2P model. I think I'm done with this. Meh

It doesn't help that level selection is decided by roulette wheel. That feature was thankfully absent from the original game.

Don't worry, you can eventually spend gems to choose exactly which level to play! Rolling Eyes

Rolling Eyes

Let's hope this is the last of the hastily-released F2P games, eh?

This one is at least a step in the right direction - a spending limit suggests Nintendo aren't out to fleece you of your life's savings, and calling their game "free-to-start" is showing some transparency.

Aye, I'm glad I didn't pay for this. This series is knackered - after staying more or less the same since it was on WiiWare, it isn't worth spending any more money on.

I may have paid a few dollars if it was all open to play, but like you, I am glad I didn't pay for it. It is shallow, mindless but pleasant entertainment. I will keep playing as long as the game freely allows me to, but it won't take up much of my time.

Switching it up with Shuffle, I can't really work out why anyone but a small child would wish to pay to proceed faster anyway.

Which leads me onto another observation: I've found that literally my entire gaming time lately has been dedicated to F2P 3DS games. This can't be good, surely?

Me as well, but that is mostly because I have 5 consoles. It hasn't stopped me from buying new games though, because a lack of job and money is doing that.
