More Bit Generations Games Coming To WiiWare

Posted by Darren Calvert

After the surprise release of Art Style: Orbient on WiiWare last week the in North America, it will probably come as no surprise to discover that more of the GBA series of bit Generations games should find their way to WiiWare. The question is which ones will make it first?

Worry not inquisitive reader as the Australian OFLC ratings body has revealed ORBIENT and two new suspiciously familiar sounding titles (as well as Mega Man 3 for Virtual Console presumably):


It is pretty safe to say that Rotohex will be the equivalent of Dialhex and we’re guessing that Cubello is the alter ego for Coloris which featured cubes in the gameplay.

Both games are considered to be pretty decent so it can only be a good thing that they are coming to WiiWare soon. If they are anywhere near as good as Art Style: Orbient we cannot wait to get our grubby mitts on them!

I just hope they remake the one based on the Tron lightcycle game. The bit Generation puzzle games looked decent at best.

Good or bad, it's very much up to the person playing, they are that kind of games. The thing they all have in common is they all are kinda puzzlish, they have a distinctive minimalistic visual look and boast some very creative and unique gameplay .

Guess this means no Orbient tomrorow (or they were cutting it very thin).

Sad not to see Digidrive or Dotstream but Coloris makes up for it. I hope they can add some life to it as I found it short lived (its a shame you couldn't score attack the challenge levels as some of those hgave really nice palettes).

If I were to describe Coloris in a few words its Platchan: Twist and Paint done correctly but that doesn't really do credit to the game but its an okay description of the gameplay.

@ Ian Daemon: For me they are absolutely great, but it's like Djungelurban say, it's up to the person playing.

@ News: I'm happy to hear this, because Dialhex is a simple but wonderful game, and Coloris might be a little bit hectic in the later game, but it is still fun to play.
Hopefully Orbient gets his release tomorrow here in Europe, i would also like to see the appearance of Groovin' Blocks =).

This is a fair description but it doesn't do the game justice. It's also probably the best of the Bit Generation titles insofar as pure addiction-factor.

I so................. want to see a version of DotStream on WiiWare, I loved the GBA game, I hope they put it up as WiiWare, add some wishful thinking too and add some multiplayer online modes too.

After watching all three videos, I'm really interested in Dialhex and Dot Stream =P
Can't wait for them to come out



Killraven said:

Objection said:

Pretty decent news. If they do as good a job as Orbient, then we'll have some more winners on our hands!

I own Orbital, Sound Voyager, Dialhex, Dotstream and Digidrive for GBA and I think they are all pretty sweet games. Not for everone, but as fresh game concepts they are really original and refreshing to me. I love showing off Sound Voyager... if you've never played it, you actually play it with headphones and your eyes closed and try to steer yourself through stereo sound. It also has a mode called "Sound Cock" where you try to catch a chicken you can only hear. GOTY! Honestly I think Dotstream is the most boring but probably the most accessable too. I think they're doing a good job picking the best ones out with Orbital and Dialhex. I sure wish I had those english instructions when i was learning Orbital...



Dazza said:

"Sound cock" LOL

Maybe you have to be British to find this amusing??!

Too bad there's no plans for Dotstream, although I don't know if it would translate well outside of the 8-bit style.
I really wish Orbient had leaderboards.



Ricardo91 said:

I'm gonna DL the whole Art Style series. They all sound like really cool games.

Soundcock. Haha!

And the next Art Style game is CUBELLO!


From Nintendo Press Release:

Art Style: CUBELLO (Nintendo, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 600 Wii Points): Art Style: CUBELLO mixes the strategy and feel of a traditional puzzle game with the precision and reflexes required in a shooter. As each stage begins, various colored cubes form into one large object called a Cubello, which floats and rotates as you play. Launch additional cubes from your magazine and try to connect four or more of the same color, removing them from the Cubello and eventually leaving only its core. Take on the challenge of either Stage or Endless mode and watch what happens when Bonus Time is activated. The straightforward controls and goal ensure that anyone can play, while offering enough depth that even advanced players will find themselves quickly addicted to the unique world of Art Style: CUBELLO.
