Virtual Console – Milon’s Secret Castle
(HUDSON SOFT, NES, 600 Wii Points)
In a world where music is the language of the people, an evil warlord from the north arrives and captures the castle. The queen is imprisoned deep within the castle and the world’s musical instruments are taken and hidden away.
Our hero, Milon, takes it upon himself to fight the warlord, rescue the queen and recover the queen’s magical crystal balls – with only his wits and the magical Bubble to aid him on his quest. Help Milon along the way by looking for hidden doors, finding secret items, and defeating fierce enemies. Make sure to look for the shops inside the castle, where you can buy hints and valuable items.
And look out for Music Boxes – whenever Milon finds one, he will be transported to a bonus stage. Each music box you find will add a layer to the music in the bonus stages. Try to grab all seven music boxes to create a performance worthy of this epic game.

NINTENDO DSiWare – Photo Dojo™
(Nintendo, 200 Nintendo DSi Points)
Photo Dojo brings a new twist to the side-scrolling beat ‘em up – literally putting you in the middle of the action.
Using your Nintendo DSi system’s camera, take photos of yourself performing punches, kicks and special moves, as well as victory and defeat poses. Next, add sound effects by recording your voice, or whatever you choose, with the microphone. Finally, snap a photo for the backdrop; the setting is entirely up to you. In just a few minutes you’ll have created your own personalised fighting game.
Battle solo against hordes of enemies, or invite a friend to capture their own likeness and fight each other in a one-on-one grudge match. And, because both players share the same Nintendo DSi, you’ll be getting up close and personal.
