Wii owners in Europe get a pretty good week this week! No Cavestory. Sorry, Masa. Nintendo has re-released their chick chick BOOM flash game on WiiWare with all new features. I had a blast with that game back in the day of early Wii Internet Channel. On WiiWare you can also find Reel Fishing Challenge 11. On the Virtual Console you will find Super E.D.F. EARTH DEFENSE FORCE. Nintendo is also releasing new demos on WiiWare, so be sure to check those out!
On DSiWare you can find yourself the usual with titles like Go! Go! Island Rescue!, GO Series Let’s Swing, and the much anticipated Sleep Clock.
You can check out descriptions of each title after the jump.
New, original games offering something for everyone!
chick chick BOOM
Five chicks on your side, five chicks on the other. BOOM! Beat the opposing chick team, but there is a twist! In chick chick BOOM you throw pianos, pink elephants, and Sumo chicks or summon slimy giant jellyfish and real UFOs. Draw lines in the arena to defend against your opponent’s attacks – the skill lies in your use of ink, creativity and timing! And extra help is provided by a corncob and a piñata. Yes really! Play on your own or with friends – as a team or against each other! To keep things interesting there are various game modes and different arenas, each with their own special attack.
Reel Fishing Challenge II
Reel Fishing is back! This sequel to the smash-hit fishing game takes you to a pristine new freshwater environment teeming with fish that look and move just like the real thing. You’ll be taking these wily lunkers on with a huge variety of lures and refined controls that provide the most natural and realistic fishing action yet! And you’ll need every advantage you can get, as Reel Fishing Challenge II’s 30 varied missions will put your angling abilities to the ultimate test. It’s a stunning, true-to-life fishing experience that’ll have you hooked!
Enjoy classic games from yesteryear on your Wii console!
SUPER E.D.F. Earth Defense Force – Super Nintendo
This is the shooter to end all shooters! The year is 20XX. An armada of the alien Azyma Empire has descended upon Earth to destroy it. The Earth’s only hope lies in its newest combat spaceship, “XA-1”, with its revolutionary ability to learn and develop itself through combat, without requiring any special items. The ship is outfitted with a wide range of devastating weapons, along with two detachable satellites to protect and support you. Take the ship out and destroy the Azyma invaders!
Access a world of new possibilities with Nintendo DSiWare.
Go! Go! Island Rescue!
This is THE Holiday from Hell! The hotels are collapsing, the robot waiters are berserking, and the picturesque volcanoes are exploding! You take control of a squad of brave firefighters who have to save the hapless Darwins from all manner of disasters including fire, floods and rampaging robots. To do this you literally ‘throw’ the Darwins around the levels until they reach a fire exit. Luckily the Darwin babies bounce so don’t worry too much if you drop some of those! And you can always rewind time in case of any fatal accidents! Go! Go! Island Rescue! will have you hooked for hours.
GO Series Let’s Swing
GO Series presents Let’s Swing from Suzak. Swing from bar to bar in this unique twist on the gymnastic sport “High Bar”. Make your way from start to finish across a room by only swinging from bar to bar. As the distance between the bars increases both horizontally and vertically you’ll need to build up more and more speed before leaping. Collect as many items on the way for bonus points.
Sleep Clock is not just an alarm clock: you can use it to record and analyse your sleeping patterns, which helps you to manage your sense of well-being. Simply set the alarm when you go to bed, and put your Nintendo DSi into Sleep Mode by closing it. Upon waking, you will be asked how you feel and how well you slept. Your answers and the times you went to sleep and woke up will be plotted on graphs, allowing you to closely monitor your sleep activity along with some advice from our sleep expert, Mr. Sheep. Choose between built-in alarm sounds, custom sounds recorded in Nintendo DSi Sound, or just have the Nintendo DSi speak the time when the alarm sounds.
