This week on the Nintendo download services, we’ve got a basketball game on the Virtual Console, a release of a single game on the DSi and Wii, and the chance to explore a new planet with a robot and the critters living inside of the robot. Yep, an interesting week, none the less.
This week’s games are as follows:
On DSiWare this week, we have Gene Labs (Frontline Studios, 1 player, 200 DSi Points), Paul’s Shooting Adventure (Agetec, 1 player, 200 DSi Points) and Peg Solitaire (Circle Entertainment, 1-2 players, 500 DSi Points). Gene Labs is a game where you have to inject viruses with the right anti-virus material in order to save healthy cells from being killed off, while Paul’s Shooting Adventure lets you play as aliens as a baby. A superhero baby. A superhero baby that can absorb powers. I don’t get it either. Peg Solitaire is a game similar to Mancala and other moving-a-marble-around-a-board games.
WiiWare has two titles this week: Robox (DreamBox Games, 1 player, 1,000 Wii Points) and Gene Labs (Frontline Studios, 1-2 players, 500 Wii Points). Robox sends players to a strange new planet, where they explore it as a faulty robot and the creatures living in the robot itself. Gene Labs is the same as the DSiWare version. Except for the Wii.
The Virtual Console is back with Street Slam (Neo Geo, 1-2 players, 900 Wii Points). Featuring three-on-three basketball, the game’s basically the Neo-Geo version of NBA Jam, except without the NBA license. Or the boom-shaka-laka.
Street Slam was released in July (as Dunk Dream) on the Japanese Virtual Console and last month (as Street Hoop) on the PAL Virtual Console. It, along with Robox and Gene Labs, is available for download off the Wii Shop Channel, while Gene Labs, Paul’s Shooting Adventure and Peg Solitaire 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
