Electroplankton making a splash on DSiWare (Update)

Finally, a DSiWare "game" that isn't a clock or a complete load of wanking sh*t. Electroplankton is a quirky music maker that uses little neon sea creatures to create tunes. It was a really interesting game that sat on my "must get" list for ages, but I never did go and buy it. Now that it's coming to DSiWare and I still have complimentary points to burn, it's certainly tempting. 

Of course, there's always a catch. Electroplankton's ten different programs will be sold as individual 200 Point downloads. This still works out as a pretty good deal, since the original game was retail priced, and with 2000 Points still sitting on my DSi and doing nothing, I might as well just get the whole thing. 

What about you? Is ElectroPlankton finally a worthy bit of DSiWare, or did you blow your Points on an Animal Crossing Clock

[Update: God damn it, I did not notice where it said Japan only. For God's sake, NoA, why can't we have nice things!?]
