This week on the Nintendo download services, we have a rather small list of games. Maybe they were expecting their North American audience to be on vacation (or for their older audience, hungover from partying) and played it safe? Who knows. But we do have a port of a rather popular tower defense game for DSi owners. Maybe you’ve heard about it before?
This week’s games are as follows:
On DSiWare this week, we have Plants vs. Zombies (PopCap Games, 1 player, 800 DSi Points), Rabi Laby (Agetec, 1 player, 500 DSi Points) and 5 in 1 Mahjong (cerasus.media, 1 player, 200 DSi Points). Plants vs. Zombies is the DSi version of the popular tower-defense-style game, which most of you are probably very familiar with by now. For those of you who aren’t: you put down different types of plants on a grid to keep zombies from being able to successfully wipe you out. Meanwhile, Rabi Laby features a girl named Alice and her rabbit Rabi, with players having to switch back and forth between the two to collect keys. 5 in 1 Mahjong is, yes, a mahjong game with 5 different modes to pick from.
WiiWare has one full title this week: Liight (Studio Walljump, 1 player, 500 Wii Points) and a demo of Mix Superstar (Digital Leisure, 1 player). Liight has players bending light to hit targets in this puzzle title. You can also create custom puzzles and send them to friends over the Internet.
The Virtual Console returns with … nothing this week. Could’ve used something fun to go with Plants vs. Zombies, truthfully, especially since there’s only one WiiWare game for this week. Oh well.
Liight and the demo are available for download off the Wii Shop Channel, while Plants vs. Zombies, Rabi Laby and 5 in 1 Mahjong are available for download off the DSi Shop Channel.
Check back next week for the latest round of digital releases for the Wii and DSi. Until then, happy gaming!Powered by Sidelines
