The WiiWare casualty this week sadly is the excellent Toki Tori. When we reviewed this fiendish platform puzzler back in May we awarded it a mighty 9/10. We weren’t alone in rating it highly as Metacritic will attest. It’s a great shame that disappointments such as SPOGS Racing are still around, but a great game like this gets overlooked by the masses. If you haven’t downloaded this yet, why not take a chance on this today? You won’t be sorry!

Thankfully the woeful Pong Toss begins its inevitable decline from its undeserved #2 spot. Hopefully we’ll see the back of it soon.

Gameloft continue to make the WiiWare service really work for them as Midnight Pool enters the chart at 18 and will surely rise much higher by next week. Wild West Guns impresses the most by stealing the #2 spot since its release 3 weeks ago. TV Show King was a launch title and still holds firm in the top 10. Block Breaker Deluxe is still hanging around too – way to go GameLoft!

So there we have it folks, another week of WiiWare madness, as always lets your thoughts be known below!
