I'm generally a sucker for all things Animal Crossing except that Wii U game, and this, I guess. The clock is $3 for me, still available at this time. I think I'll pass. Thanks for reviewing it!

Have you got Aniaml Crossing Calculator? Another piece of DSiWare.

This looks like something that, if made today, would just be some downloadable smart phone app. Looking at the release date, this "game" came out around the time the iPhone first became a thing. This looks like some toy app you'd see people screwing around with when the iPhone first game out--except on a DS.

I could see my 7yo playing with this clock and thinking its neat. Then again, just play Animal Crossing if you already have the DS out.

I think you're right, dagoss. As I reviewed it, I thought that it would have almost been a neat thing to have when the DSi first hit. There weren't hundreds of games available for that service yet, and the iPhone wasn't the massive success it is today, and quirky little stuff like that with a $2 price tag wasn't awful. But I'm reviewing it today, and a lot of its value is gone now, plus it was never top-shelf stuff. I think the Super Mario Clock, which I've also reviewed, was also more worthwhile and better executed on its theme.

Jerec, thanks for reading! I hoped if nothing else, my text could reach Animal Crossing super fans and let them know they're safe passing on this one unless they have other additional motivations. I think the Wii U game you mentioned is more essential for that sort of fan than this one is. I need to play a bit more of that one so I can review it, actually, but I played it with some Animal Crossing fans I know and we were rather... underwhelmed. As for the calculator you mentioned, I do indeed have that and may very well review it.
