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?
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.
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.
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.
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 wonâ€™t believe in the Faraway Tree and the magical people who live there â€“ Moon-face, Silky the fairy and Saucepan Man.
Thereâ€™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.
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!
