Digger Dan & Kaboom (Virtual Playground/ 500 Nintendo DSi Points)

However, all of the gems are in some pretty nasty caves, so you're going to have to help Dan get them out. Dan has sent Kaboom, his pet gopher, into the caves to find the best place to start, but he hasn't returned.

Best of all, the game is based on the authenticity of poker and the algorithms that produce a natural falling of the cards.
