First Impressions: Tapping In With amiibo Tap: Nintendo's Greatest Bits | NLife

amiibo Tap: Nintendo's Greatest Bits technically does its job, and some will say that we shouldn't be so critical of a free app. Free or not, though, this download is supposed to have a clear purpose to promote amiibo and the Virtual Console, yet is fundamentally flawed in execution to the point that it actually portrays both products in a bad light. It 'shows off' retro game scenes that can be out of context and confusing to newcomers, and uses amiibo in a way that makes them seem like cynical low-functionality toys, which they typically are not.

It could have been better. Why is the Amiibo not tied to the game it unlocks? SILLY NINTENDO haha. I love them, but who is high on the job in Kyoto? Also, the amiibo situation, you can't get them, rendering the app useless.

I'm not bitching about free stuff either.
