USA VC Update: Kirby's Dream Land 3

Nintendo of America has released one Virtual Console game and two WiiWare games every single week for the past two months - You thought they couldn't sink any lower? Guess again, because this week it's one VC game and one WiiWare game! Much like last week, the VC game is a good one, but that doesn't really make up for anything!

Kirby's Dream Land 3 for the SNES is the final Kirby's Dream Land game and the only one released on a console - As you might know, the first two games were both released for the original Game Boy. Much like Super Mario World 2, Kirby's Dream Land 3 uses a unique visual style - The whole game looks as if it was drawn with crayons. It's a decent Kirby game, despite offering nothing really new, but the general opinion seems to be that it is one of the lesser games in the series, which may be attributed to the fact that the game's a breeze to beat - There is almost no challenge at all! Europeans should be aware that, much like StarTropics II last week, this game was never released in Europe, making it a perfect candidate for the next Hanabi Festival.

As said, there's only one WiiWare game this week instead of two - It's Sandy Beach, in which you can build and protect sandcastles. Before you start bashing the game based on pictures, note that it is being published by Konami - Perhaps it's really good?
