New for Nintendo!

Posted by GG Goblin On June - 4 - 2010

The New for Nintendo! article has been missing for the past couple of weeks. Sorry.

 
But now we are back! But I can’t help feel that we could have chosen a better week to bring this weekly article back to life. The offerings this week are very thin on the ground. Still, let’s have a look at what is available and maybe something here will catch your attention?

 
WiiWare

 
Robocalypse – Beaver Defence

Vogster Entertainment – 600 Wii Points

 
Well, I can’t help but think that defending Beavers is something we should all spend a bit more time doing. That aside, this game probably offers the only highlight from this weeks releases. It’s a tower defence game with robots and, I assume, Beavers? Well, I could be wrong on the Beaver front.

 
Either way, tower defence games are always popular and would have to be exceptionally flawed to not be worth a look. If tower defence is your flavour of the month and you have a passing admiration of Beavers, give this title a try. At only 600 points, it seems to be a bargain.

Brain Drain

Enjoy Gaming Ltd – 500 Wii Points

 
My brain is already starting to feel drained just trying to work this out. Brain Drain was released on DSiWare a few weeks back. Whilst researching the title, I found that it was already out on WiiWare. Yet here it is. Maybe I got confused with the US WiiWare release.

 
Anyway, confusion aside, Brain Drain is a puzzle game that challenges the player to move blocks to make a certain shape. Or something like that anyway. I don’t know that this will have much to offer, other than for the big puzzle gaming fans.

 
DSiWare

 
A Topsy Turvy Life: Turvy Drops

Tecmo Koei – 200 DSi Points

 
We get more puzzle goodness in this week’s first DSiWare offering. In a bizarre twist, the player has to turn their DSi upside down and draw blocks in the correct places so that they drop and fill the holes, in a sort of reverse Tetris style.

 
This game certainly sounds interesting and could be a lot of fun.

 
topsyturvy

 
Music On: Electronic Keyboard

Abylight – 200 DSi Points

 
Less of a game and more of a simulation, this DSi app gives the owner their very own electronic keyboard that can be taken everywhere and used to annoy everyone they encounter. For the musically inclined.

 
Flips: The Folk of the Faraway Tree

Electronic Arts – 500 DSi Points

 
Another interactive book for those with an interest in reading.

 

Joe, Beth and Frannie have a visit from snooty friend Connie. Connie won’t believe in the Faraway Tree and the magical people who live there – Moon-face, Silky the fairy and Saucepan Man.

 
There’s only one way to prove her wrong and so together the children climb the tree, and visit some of the lands at the top of it. And after a few adventures in the Land of Secrets and the Land of Treats, Connie learns to be a nicer person altogether.

 
Crazy Sudoku

DTP Entertainment – 200 DSi Points

 
Our final offering in a very quiet week, and it is a Sudoku game. Crazy Sudoku doesn’t really offer anything different from all of the other Sudoku games, with various difficulty levels and 9×9 or 6×6 grids. But I guess if you really like Sudoku, then you can never have enough Sudoku games?

 
Let’s hope that next week brings some more interesting games.

 
Until next week, have fun!
