N denotes a new entry

It should be no surprise to discover that Mega Man 9 holds the top spot for its second week, go blue bomber! There is no change in the entire top 5, Strong Bad Episode 2 is still struggling to get ahead of the formidable fishtank simulation that is My Aquarium.

Bomberman Blast makes an impressive debut at #6, not bad for a game released two days ago. Art Style: Orbient popped into the charts at #14, which isn’t bad considering that we have not seen one bit of promotional material from Nintendo on this game, heck we had to take our own screenshots for the game page!

Poor old Potpourrii still hasn’t managed to hit the charts yet! As it came out over 2 weeks ago now we find that somewhat amazing, one can only wonder how poor the sales have been. The infamous Plättchen: Twist 'n' Paint also failed to make an appearance this week which again can only indicate poor sales. Back to the drawing board Bplus!

This weeks casualties are the fun rhythm game Helix and Breakout clone, Block Breaker Deluxe. It’s a shame as both are decent games. Isn’t it about time that we said goodbye to Family Table Tennis and Cocoto Fishing by now?

As always, have your say on this week’s findings below.
