I'd appreciate it if you'd try to trigger the save corruption bug with your updated game. It's probably the fastest way to find out what the patch did.

Played a good chunk of Gunman Clive on my break at work; so good. I'd kill for, if not a sequel then just a spiritual successor that expands on the mechanics. It's really helping scratch the itch for run and gun platforming until Mega Man 2 gets here

Yep, kinda makes you wonder WTF happened with Fluidity only running at 30 fps when it doesn't support 3D and doesn't have any fancy graphical effects (as far as I can tell). I love the game as well; even though it only takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete (depending on difficulty), the stage design just keeps getting better and better as you go along. I've already beaten the game twice and I can see myself replaying it many times over.

I'm sure that the 3DS should have been able to handle it at 60. For instance the Loco Roco games run at 60 fps on the PSP and they have some pretty advanced physics (though maybe not as advanced as Fluidity).

To be fair the 3DS didn't even have an eShop a month after launch, so I guess this is progress.

There are several different ways code can be written. The game is also a port from a console with a much faster CPU, so once they had a code that hit 60fps there there was no need to optimize further.

It's not uncommon to have to use completely different techniques to get better performance and this is much more laborious when working with existing code than with code written from scratch.

Also, the 3DS doesn't support the per-pixel distortion effects the Wii and GC had, so Fluidity seems to be using a vertex-based technique with can be more expensive.

Right now I can reveal that first day in america = 2.9x first day in europe

I have a feeling this means Gunman Clive's worldwide debut on 3DS is better than on iOS, since you said the European debut was just a little lower than WW debut on iOS.

Oh, yes: could you repeat where the game was in US and European charts in the first day / days after the release? And could anyone here say where the game is positioned in the 3DS Current US Chart? I'd like to see a sort of comparison.

Loving Gunman Clive, excellent work beril! Sure it's a short game, but the fact that each character controls differently greatly extends the game's longevity. I'm really hoping you are planning a sequel, spiritual successor, or even just an update- I'd gladly pay for any of these. Even more unique, playable characters (a la Super Meat Boy) would be awesome!
Btw thanks for the nostalgia, reminding me of those days of getting my ass kicked in megaman as kid :)

I don't know where there is a list online but as well as the Nintendo published ones in the west there are (I'll add to this):-
Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Bravely Default: Flying Fairy
New Love Plus
Resident Evil Mercenaries
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon
Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney
Fantasy Life
Demon Brain Training
Senran Kagura Burst
AKB48 + Me
Dead or Alive Dimensions
Monster Hunter 3
Plus easily a dozen more...

But surely it has a better CPU than the PSP which was running Loco Roco with similarly advanced physics at 60 fps at 222 MHz? Though I can buy into M3d10n's reasoning that the game's code was ported over from the Wii which made it more difficult to optimize.

I'm actually getting old stuff when I did a transfer from my 3DS to 3DS XL.

As far as I'm aware Loco Roco doesn't actually do any proper fluid dynamics, just lots of soft body physics, which is a different (and less computationally taxing) thing. I haven't played the whole way through Loco Roco, though, although I do own the game, so perhaps there's some nice fluid simulation at some point and I just haven't seen it.

I don't really get the love for it, either. It looks and sounds nice but the gameplay and level design, while solid, could not be less remarkable.

It's a fine little $2 game, but it's nothing special.

Why is the Wii U version the definitive version?

All the content we have today + exclusive content that will never come to the other platforms (and will probably be revealed in the first Nintendo Force issue) .

Isn't Gunman Clive made by a GAF member? I could have sworn I read it somewhere in another thread. I mean, I'm probably going to get it because of the price alone (Have $2.02 in balance), but if it's from a GAFfer, all the better.

Will get for sure, really enjoyed the first one.

Also loved what I played of Gunman Clive yesterday, although my time with it was brief as I had to get a tooth pulled and the agonizing pain left it hard to do anything :/ Looking forward to play more of it soon.

Another thing, do we know if Fire Emblem is coming to the eShop or is it going to be retail? I'm tempted to get it digital just because of how large of a game it is but can't recall hearing anything on the fact.

They haven't announced a digital release, and it's not available digitally in Japan, but they said all first-party games will be getting a simultaneous eShop release going forward, so I'm sure both options will be available.
