All good things must come to an end, and such is the case with the beloved Bit.Trip series. The last installment drops this week on WiiWare, but does the DSi have some good games? And what about the Virtual Console? Read on to find out, of course!
This week’s games are as follows:
On DSiWare this week, we have Monster Buster Club (Nordcurrent, 1 player, 800 DSi Points), Magnetic Joe (Subdued Software, 1-2 players, 500 DSi Points) and My Little Restaurant (QubicGames, 1 player, 500 DSi Points). Monster Buster Club is based on an animated TV series about kids who are trying to stop monsters form taking over town by … ummm, solving puzzles, I guess. Magnetic Joe
is a little magnetic sphere that you have to guide through mazes as he tries to save the world. Also, the mazes are actually puzzles with magnetic force as the only way to get around. Finally, My Little Restaurant is a restaurant management sim, like Diner Dash, packed with minigames.
WiiWare has one full title this week: Bit.Trip Flux (Aksys Games, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points), along with a demo of Gods vs. Humans (ZALLAG, 1 player). Flux is the end of the Bit.Trip series, sending Commander Video on one final mission: return home. The series has been a blast, and I expect this will be no different. Definitely buy this one if you like rhythm games or just games that are challenging but fun.
The Virtual Console gets another week off. This week, that’s a big letdown because, really, we don’t have much else to talk about besides Bit.Trip Flux. But hey, no dumb fireplace apps this week!
Bit.Trip Flux and the demo are available for download off the Wii Shop Channel, while Monster Buster Club, Magnetic Joe and My Little Restaurant 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!
