his week sees the arrival of the eagerly awaited Mighty Flip Champs! alongside the action packed and puzzling world of Reflect Missile, both on Nintendo DSiWare.

Virtual Console takes Shanghai to the next level with Shanghai II Dragonâ€™s Eye launching on Virtual Console this week.
NINTENDO DSiWARE – Mighty Flip Champs!
(WayForward, 800 Nintendo DSi points)
Are you ready to become a Mighty Flip Champ? Take control of Alta and Page Flip through a series of action packed mazes.
The Touch Screen reflects a preview of the next chamber and shows Alta’s projected destination within it. When it’s time to flip, use Alta’s Magical Warp Wand to replace her world with the next one. Will she land safely on solid ground, or be crushed under it?
By cycling endlessly through room after brain busting room, you’ll match wits with some of the most devious traps in puzzle/platforming history!
NINTENDO DSiWARE – Reflect Missile
(Nintendo, 500 Wii Points)
Action, puzzle and strategy meet head-on in Reflect Missile! Use the Touch Screen and stylus to launch an arsenal of missiles and destroy all enemy blocks in each stage. Enemies are surrounded by obstructing blocks, so you’ll need to think strategically and aim carefully to take them all out.
To aid you in your mission, you’re armed with a variety of unique types of missile. Reflector missiles bounce around the screen, taking out blocks as they go. Drillers bore through up to six blocks in one shot. Bombers destroy all blocks within a certain blast radius. But don’t squander your missiles; you only have a set number with which to complete each stage.
Clearing stages with missiles left over earns you medals, which unlock even more stages – up to 200 in total! With various difficulty levels and a quick play mode, Reflect Missile will prove a relaxing challenge for players of all abilities.

Your Wii Remote becomes the control stick as you guide your copter along the canyons while avoiding rocks, severe weather and even anti-aircraft fire! Rescue lost hikers, deliver supplies to remote areas, assist on scientific missions and even blast your way into underground cavern systems. Complete all of your objectives and rise through the ranks to take on the toughest rescues and unlock 10 bonus missions.
