5 Arcade Gems (WiiWare)

Game Profile

Welcome to 5 Arcade Gems, a collection of five wacky arcade games. You can play alone or together with your friends – you will definitely find something for your taste, be it a medieval knights game or ultra-modern space shooter.

  • Compete with other knights to beat the Evil Wizard's challenge in Templar Bashing.
  • No hazard gets in the way of the dutiful Pizza Jungle Delivery company, not even the fierce savages who won't tip!
  • Outsmart your competitors in RC Buggy Madness.
  • Demonstrate your skills and reflexes in Lumberjack Trials.
  • And of course, no adventure is complete without some deep space alien-bursting action in Whirling Rangers.

Looks like it could be mildly entertaining. Won't lie, I think I'm going to steer clear simply due to the lack of online play. Why don't games like these take advantage of the Wii's wifi connection?! =(

You make a good point IAmThetot, its unfortunate that developers don't make use of the online features.
