USA WiiWare Update: Tetris Party & The Incredible Maze
Posted by Darren Calvert
Pop the champagne corks and raise a toast because the good times are here to stay. After a cracking few weeks on the WiiWare service which bought us the legendary Mega Man 9, World of Goo, not to mention two awesome Art Style games now it gets even better with the much anticipated Tetris Party entering the halls of greatness.
That is of course if it is any good, but with Hudson developing it on behalf of The Tetris Company we cannot see how it could fail to be anything other than great. This is a puzzle fanatics wet dream with more game modes than you could shake a stick at, wi-fi battle and even Balance Board support. Our comprehensive review will be up in a few days as usual, but if you like any of the previous Tetris series then downloading this later today really is a no-brainer. It is priced at 1200 Wii points. Check out the official site for all the details.
There is also another game, but we know nothing about it so we’ll just quote the press release:
The Incredible Maze (Digital Leisure Inc., 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): Get lost in The Incredible Maze! Simply tilt your Wii Remote controller to navigate a series of exciting and twisted mazes. Entering the maze could not be easier, but finding your way out will require a keen eye and a steady hand. Obstacles and traps are around every corner, so move your ball around the maze without falling off the edge. But watch out, there are lots of surprises in store. You can hunt for gems in a timed challenge, or test your abilities in a race against the clock. The Incredible Maze is also compatible with the Wii Balance Board, so you can really put your weight into it. This is the way in, but you'll have to find your own way out.
It’s a Balance Board bonanza this week on WiiWare! On the Virtual Console we’re playing catch-up with Europe as the excellent TurboGrafx-CD shoot-em-up Gradius II: Gofer no Yabou finally releases today along with a lacklustre boxing game called Digital Champ.
