150 coins can get you Q-Games' minimalist tower defense DSiWare game on 3DS.

Starship Defense is now available as a North American Club Nintendo reward for 150 coins until July 29, replacing Electroplankton Rec-Rec, which was available from July 1 to July 15. It can only be downloaded on 3DS systems.

The game, originally released on DSiWare in 2010, is a tower defense game from Q-Games, the developers of Star Fox 64 3D, Star Fox Command, Art Style: Digidrive, and the PlayStation-exlusive PixelJunk games. You can read our review of the game for more details.

Since Club Nintendo started offering games as rewards late last year, this is the first time games have been made available on a staggered schedule. Previously, old games would be taken down at the end of a month, and new games would be added on the first of a month.

Mario Tennis is the other currently available Club Nintendo game. The Wii Virtual Console title is available for 150 coins until July 22. A new game will likely be added on July 23.

Whoa...if I didn't already have this, I'd be on this faster than .

I hate tower defense games, and I like this one a lot.

Ooh I've been waiting on this for some time...  hot damn I'm loving these game-for-coins offerings. So far I've nabbed Fluidity, Majora's Mask, Mario's Picross, Radar Mission, Snowpack Park, and Maboshi's Arcade, and have really enjoyed them. A few certified classics, a few bits of history and a multiplayer puzzle gem, that would have cost me around 45 bones, all for basically nil? Good stuff.

If you don't have this already and have the coins... get it
If you don't have this already and don't have the coins... then go buy some DSiWare Points/3dDS cash card and get it!

One of the best DSiWare titles and it sooooo deserves a second game.  Even if it's just more maps.  I bought this twice (on my DSi, then again on my 3DS (didn't want to lose my save file) and beat it 100% Perfect on both systems.

Ooh, that reminds me, I ought to rebuy this on my new 3DS...
