Itâ€™s a week packed full of variety on the Wii Shop Channel and Nintendo DSi Shop. Save the universe in Super Star Wars: Return of the Jediâ„¢ on Virtual Console â€“ the last of the classic Super Nintendo trilogy.
On WiiWare youâ€™ll need all your strategic skills in Little Tournament Over Yonder as you become a prince or princess to lead your army into battle, and youâ€™ll need to get your brain into gear â€“ literally â€“ in the mechanical puzzle game Heron: Steam Machine.
On Nintendo DSiWare, defend your village from Olaf and his rampaging hordes in Viking Invasion, and relax with a brainteasing new game from the makers of Actionloopâ„¢ and Polariumâ„¢: Wakugumi: Monochrome Puzzleâ„¢.
Also, donâ€™t forget that our Star Warsâ„¢ Wii Channel events are still running. Over the week ahead weâ€™ll be challenging you to recreate Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Mii Contest Channel; while we continue to quiz you on fun Star Warsâ„¢-themed topics in the Everybody Votes Channel!

WiiWARE – Heron: Steam Machine
(Triangle Studios, 500 Wii Points)
Heron: Steam Machine is a game about a factory where rubber duckies are being produced by a large steam engine. On this steam engine, there are four different gauges which you will have to watch carefully.
By connecting the pipes, you will earn points and relieve some of the pressure, keeping the machine running just a little bit longer. If one of the gauges reaches its maximum, the machine will eventually blow up, and the game is over.
In Multiplayer, you can work with friends to maintain the steam machine. When you play with two, three or four players, the screen is divided into sections with different background colours. Each player is restricted to their own section of the screen, having to solve their own puzzles, so youâ€™ll have to work together to make the pipes fit properly!
NINTENDO DSiWARE – Wakugumi: Monochrome Puzzleâ„¢
(Nintendo, 500 Nintendo DSi Points)
From the makers of brain-teasing classics like Actionloopâ„¢ and Polariumâ„¢ comes a new challenge, one that will test both your grey matter and your stylus skills.
Wakugumi: Monochrome Puzzleâ„¢ is based on a simple premise: clear black and white blocks from the play area, â€˜capturingâ€™ blocks of one colour by surrounding them with blocks of the opposite colour. You control the action with your stylus, swapping blocks back and forth to make the perfect captures.
Learn the basics in Training Mode, then test your capturing techniques in Score Attack as you try to clear as many blocks as possible within a time limit, chaining captures together to score bonuses. Or try your hand at Time Attack â€“ can you erase all the blocks and work your way down the vertical course as quickly as possible?
NINTENDO DSiWARE – Viking Invasion
(BiP Media, 800 Nintendo DSi Points)
Coming from the north, Olaf the Viking’s comical horde is set to make waves on your Nintendo DSi.
The Viking drakkars are sailing up the rivers to your castles and itâ€™s up to you to construct fortifications so they do not pillage everything you own. But watch out: the more you defend yourself, the greater the waves of Vikings become. Fortunately the experience you gain will help you to build even more powerful defences. Thwart all your assailantâ€™s ruses and unlock new kinds of buildings.
Can you rise to the challenge and prevent Olaf from pillaging all your valuables for his sweetheart Olga?
