NINTENDO DSiWare – FLIPPER
(Xform, 500 Nintendo DSi Points)

The hero of the game is a courageous young boy. You must lead him through various worlds full of obstacles to retrieve his stolen goldfish called Flipper.

Get ready for a 3D puzzle platform game set over four different worlds, each with five levels. The game features beautiful pixel-art backdrops, cheerful cartoon characters and catchy music. The voxel engine technology allows you to change the environment with some cool power-ups. You can find power-ups that let you blast holes in the environment, build platforms, or restore parts you’ve previously destroyed. It’s up to you to use the limited amount of power-ups wisely to complete each level.

Flipper is a fun and challenging puzzle game that is suitable for all ages.

NINTENDO DSiWare – myPostcards™
(Nnooo, 200 Nintendo DSi Points)

Make your own postcards and send them to your friends. myPostcards allows you to take a photo, write a note and then save it as a postcard. Just pop open your Nintendo DSi snap a picture and get started.

You can even personalise your postcards by changing the background theme and stamps. With over 32 different unlockable lined and blank themes as well as many different stamps to collect you’ll be able to create a postcard for any occasion.

Use the pen or pencil to write your notes or doodles and then erase the bits you don’t like. With five ink colours you’ll always be able to make your notes and doodles look stylish.

NINTENDO DSiWare – GAME & WATCH™
Experience a piece of Nintendo history with the Game & Watch series for Nintendo DSiWare. Each title is a perfect recreation of a classic LCD game from the early 1980s, including normal Game A and alternate Game B modes.

And no Game & Watch title would be complete without the “Watch” function – each title includes a fully functional clock.

GAME & WATCH™ BALL
(Nintendo, 200 Nintendo DSi Points)

Ball was the first original Game & Watch ever to be produced. As a juggler (who we now know as Mr Game & Watch), you must keep the fragile balls up in the air for as long as possible, scoring points for each catch. Don’t drop even one ball or it’s Game Over! Game A features two balls to juggle, Game B has three balls, each worth 10 points per catch.

GAME & WATCH™ FLAGMAN
(Nintendo, 200 Nintendo DSi Points)

Next in the Game & Watch series, Flagman will challenge your memory and reflexes, as you try and remember a series of numbers in quick succession. In Game A, memorise the Flagman’s sequence shown on his flags and on the bottom of his feet, within a set time. In Game B, repeat the number shown one at a time, but do it quickly.
GAME & WATCH™ DONKEY KONG JR.
(Nintendo, 200 Nintendo DSi Points)
In Donkey Kong Jr., the great ape has been captured by Mario. As DK’s son, you must rescue your father by collecting keys to unlock his cage. Jump and climb, dodge crocodiles and birds, and make a well-timed leap to reach the swinging key. In Game B, enemies move faster, and the time Donkey Kong Jr. can hang onto vines is shorter.

VIRTUAL CONSOLE – INDIANA JONES®’ GREATEST ADVENTURES™
(LucasArts, Super Nintendo, 800 Wii Points)

Grab your trusty whip and slash your way through all three Indy classics in this no-holds-barred adventure. If it happened in the movies, it happens here: the giant boulder from Raiders of the Lost Ark, the mine-cart chase from Temple of Doom, the three trials from Last Crusade, René Belloq and Colonel Vogel – it’s three times the action, all in one fully loaded game.

WiiWare – THE WILL OF DR FRANKENSTEIN
(Enjoy Gaming ltd., 500 Wii Points).

You play Frankie, the hero of the story. Frankie is a young orphan who must help his great-great uncle, the professor Frankenstein, to build a strange machine. You will have much fun with the “Steampack”; a device which the professor gives you which enables you to suck up vaporites (strange clouds that keep destroying mechanical engines) and to unearth treasures.
