Are you ready for bullets and bombs, Wii owners? Too bad if you’re not: you’re getting plenty this week! And DSi owners, you can have games where you get to be a gymnast, an explosives expert and a squishy little car made of jelly. I think that covers everyone?
This week’s games are as follows:
On DSiWare this week, we have G.G Series HORIZONTAL BAR (Genterprise Inc., 1 player, 200 DSi Points), GO Series EARTH SAVER (Gamebridge, 1 player, 500 DSi Points) and JellyCar 2 (Disney Interactive, 1 player, 500 DSi Points). G.G Series HORIZONTAL BAR has you swinging and jumping from bar to bar, adding momentum to your swing and trying to hit each jump perfectly as a gymnast. Yeah, kinda weird but interesting. In GO Series EARTH SAVER, you pilot a ship that’s off to save the world from a giant meteorite by creating combo chains of explosions. JellyCar 2 is a sequel to the first game in the series that features many of the same mechanics, with a few new game play modes to boot. Also, you drive around levels as a squishy car.
WiiWare has one full title this week: Heavy Fire: Black Arms (Teyon, 1-2 players, 500 Wii Points), along with a demo of Soccer Bashi (Icon Games Entertainment, 1-2 players). Heavy Fire: Black Arms is the sequel to Heavy Fire: Special Operations, in which you have to go to South America and destroy a massive weapons cartel operating out of the jungle. Oh, and it’s got co-op.
The Virtual Console returns with a new release, Bomberman Hero (Nintendo 64, 1 player, 1,000 Wii Points). A bit puzzled here they didn’t pick Bomberman 64 instead, but the two games are pretty similar in game play style. Story’s pretty similar, too: Bomberman has to save the day by blowing up the things in his way.
Bomberman Hero was released on the PAL Virtual Console last week. It, along with Heavy Fire: Black Arms and the demo, is available for download off the Wii Shop Channel, while G.G Series HORIZONTAL BAR, GO Series EARTH SAVER and JellyCar 2 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
