USA WiiWare Update: Snowboard Riot & Lonpos

Posted by Darren Calvert

Great news for snowboarding fans today as Hudson’s Snowboard Riot is up for grabs for 1000 Wii points. This game looks like it has it all, racing action, weapons to slow down your opponents, Balance Board support and most importantly online competition! We think it looks like potentially one of the most exciting WiiWare games of the year, but you’ll have to wait for our review in a couple of days to discover if this is really the case. Until then why not check out the official site to help you decide if you want to take a chance on it before our review?

Today’s other game will challenge your mind rather than your reflexes. Lonpos is a logic puzzle game in which the player must fit a fixed number of beaded game pieces of various shapes, to fill a set area such as a rectangle or pyramid. The actual board game is quite popular in Japan and the WiiWare translation is not bad as we found out when it hit Europe two weeks ago, but it’s not really in the same league as the best of WiiWare’s puzzle titles. You’ll probably instinctively know if this is a game you will enjoy or not, no doubt.

On the Virtual Console this week another forgotten Master System game is hoping to get your attention. Sonic Chaos came very late in the day in the Master System’s lifetime, sadly it isn’t the best Sonic game on the system. One for hardcore Sonic fans only perhaps!

Well... Snowboard Riot looks good. Looking forward to next week, when the real fun begins! (LIT)

I think Lonpos is going to get lost in the crowded see of puzzle games on Wii Ware. Can't see this one up on the top 20 for a long time

It will be interesting to see how Snowboard Riot turns out

I've been looking forward to this, Snow board Riot looks to be a def must. Will wait for the review, but i really want a boarding game, so I may get it either way.

I am really interested in Snowboard Riot. I will probably wait for the review though. It is too bad that there isn't a way for review sites to get these games prior to their release dates. It would be nice to get reviews when the game is released.

Of course since we rarely know what is even coming out, that is asking for a lot.

By a long time do you mean ever? Seriously it seems most WiiWare released these days will never see light of the top 20. Its a shame we don't get real sales numbers so we have no clue how they are getting on.

From watching a video of this, it looks like there is no option for just the wiimote?

I thought that Shawn White Road Trip did a fantastic job of just using the wiimote. I am to the point now, where I hate using the nunchuck for any type of racing game.

KnucklesSonic8 said:

YES!!!! I was right!! I've been waiting for this! Must-buy! Can't wait to face you guys online! :D

I'm so excited! Can't wait till 12:00. :)

As for Lonpos, I don't know if it's for me for not.... I hear that the 800-Point price tag can be barely justified. But I heard the game has Online Play so at least there's that. :) I may hold off because I need the Points for other WiiWare titles forthcoming in the next couple weeks (i.e., most predominantly, Evasive space and whatever surprises Nintendo has in store for us).

Sonic Chaos isn't that bad. But I'm not getting it because I have it on Gems Collection. In fact, I kinda expected it to come this Monday.

@ Starwolf
Yeah it may show up one week if lucky. According to a IGN Nintendo voice podcast 2-3 weeks ago they said a some developers were dissapointed with the sales of their games. But no official sales records have been released. I agree it would be nice to know.

I might look at Snowboard Riot if it turns out to be good (sounds promising so far), but I'm not getting near Lonpos.

Wiiloveit said:

Oh look, you got Lonpos and Snowboard Riot - both games that us Europeans already own. Oh no - but wait, what happened to Snowboard Riot? Oh yes, I remember, Nintendo were too stubborn to release it in Januray like Hudson wanted (or Hudson switched the date with SAMEGAME, either way - we should still have it).
Hope it's good, and can't wait for alla yours opinions.

worrybomb

#19

worrybomb said:

Oh man. I was expecting SAMEGAME to appear this week. Now Dazza is 50/50 with predictions. Darn you Nintendo! It's bad enough you mixed up Hudson release dates but now you screwed with Dazza's predictions!!?? =P

As for Snowboard Riot, it looks like it'll be a fun game but I'll wait for a review before purchasing. Lonpos, I can do without.

DazzaAdmin

Dazza said:

@worrybomb - Oh well, you can't grumble that Snowboard Riot came out today, I think it should be pretty decent. I was right about the Evasive Space press release also, so my physic predictions are almost intact! lol

How do all you Americans know of the Kaiser Chiefs? :D

@Dazza: if you actually did win the Lotto, that would be AWESOME. Also, and I'm asking you with this being my 1000th post here at WiiWare-World (I love you that much) ... what is actually going to happen to me over the next seven days? I know you know what.

No to both. SR just isn't for me and Sonic Chaos can be played on Sonic Adventure DX.

@ShadX: Exactly. that's why I'm not getting Chaos.

@Fleeman: Sure looks that way. I love this year's WiiWare schedule thus far. Awesome.

Guys, Snowboard Riot is 217 Blocks and Lonpos is 125 Blocks. Downloading SR now! :D

Looking forward to reading some impressions for SBR. I know that Snowboard Riot is four players online, is it four player split screen as well?

Awesome! Greatly anticipating the review. This, World of Goo (sorry!), Mario Golf and Guitar Hero World Tour and (when I get it)Rock Band 2 DLC are the current downloads I want. Roll on 4th July (saving for a holiday. And i just got Korg DS-10!)

Hey guys. Was playing online. Online integration is quite good. I really like the presentation of the game. :)

If you guys wanna know anything about it, lemme know. lol.

AlexSays said:

So KnucklesSonic, if you had to give the game a score between one and five million...

KnucklesSonic8

#40

KnucklesSonic8 said:

So far, there are 4 Courses. Dunno if there are any unlockables but I'm fine if there are only 4.

@AlexSays: lol. :P

@longtimegamer: It's very "pick-up-and-play" if you know what I mean. You just jump right in. I haven't really played 1P so yeah... But Time Attacks are ranked too so that's great to see. The WFC Support is certainly welcomed in this game. And yes, I have a BB so that's another big reason for me getting it. :D

PiratePete

#41

PiratePete said:

The main question is really, "KnucklesSonic, is Snowboard Riot worth a download? Thank you."

KnucklesSonic8

#42

KnucklesSonic8 said:

lol. Well in my humble opinion, the answer is a resounding yes. But whether or not you trust my judgment is up to you.

It's worth 1,000 Points for it's BB and WFC Support alone.
I have come across some issues, I won't lie. But they're overshadowed by the enjoyment I get from the game. :) WFC Racers are definitely not boring. They're quite eventful. I did about 4 rounds before quitting for a bit. I had to do a couple things. I'll be heading back shortly.

The game takes a while to get used to so don't expect to get it off the bat. Don't write it off so quickly, either. This is a game you need time and patience for, something I'm always prepared to give games. It's like Skate It for Wii. Although I haven't tried it yet (I really want to), I've been hearing that for those that give it enough time to get used to the controls, then there's a great game hidden beneath. I think some principles can be derived for SR too. :)

I'll be heading back shortly but I'll be back again later if you guys have more questions.

@KS8: Actually, I'm quite interested to hear your response to AlexSays' question: after all, you did say anything.
Also: only four courses? Well, that's a disappointment, although what with all the other features, I suppose I'm not allowed to complain *sigh.

PiratePete

#46

PiratePete said:

Score! Thanks very much. It does look quite good in videos as well. Any specific score you would award it, or am I too early to ask that?

KnucklesSonic8

#47

KnucklesSonic8 said:

A little too early to tell for a score, yep. But definitely AT LEAST a 7, imo. I'm bordering on an 8 but like I said, I haven't exlpored the game thoroughly to judge it fairly.

@Kenji: It's a great week, imo. If you get Lonpos, tell me what you think. I'm still on the fence. And if you have it, that's more reason to get it since I'll have someone to face. ;)

@AlexSays: Yes! You were paying attention! lol. :P Well how's this? When I get back, then I'll get to my complaints. :P I need to play more anyways before I can classify certain things as complaints. I'm still not 100% used to the game.

@Wiiloveit: lol. 4 courses isn't disappointing, imo. The game has enough content to surpass some other WiiWare games that are unjustifiably priced at 1,000 Points, imo (stares at SPOGS Racing). And yeah, the other features of the game make up for it. Like I said, it's possible there are more courses. But when I went straight online, there were 4 available for selection. Who knows. It could be like some other Wi-fi games on DS where you can't pick a certain level online until you've unlocked it but others who have the stage unlocked can. I dunno. It's possible. :P

The game has a pretty big learning curve, though. I'll say that also. Like I said, don't expect to pick it up instantly. Although the mode is straightforward, the actual gameplay really is crazy. There's a lot to remember (e.g., items, your shield, and tricks).

> Snowboarding... weapons to slow down your opponents

There's something you don't see every day...

KnucklesSonic8

#51

KnucklesSonic8 said:

@thewiirocks: Premise of using weapons such as missiles originated from Snowboard Kids on the N64, one of the many games I REALLY want to appear on the VC. It's a great game and I have many memories. Anyway, Hudson developed SBK and SBK2 and later SBKDS so it's only natural that this WiiWare game has a similar system.

@Pablo17: I can double check that for you. I'm pretty sure. Don't see why not when you face 4 People online.

@AKnuckles Sonic8
I just found a video that states that it is only two players offline but let me know if you find out something different. I was really hoping for a four player split screen mode.

KnucklesSonic8

#54

KnucklesSonic8 said:

@Pablo17: Yeah, on the Nintendo Channel video, it DOES say 2P Races. I was gonna mention that but yep, I'll double check.

@tatemon555: New Sonic game? It's Sonic Chaos. And it's not even that great. I was really hoping SSB64 would come today. Anyway, we know it WONT be Evasive Space since that's on the 16th, week after. :D

Anyone care to speculate?
And with that, I finally head back to Snowboard Riot. :P

PiratePete said:

This could be WiiWare game number 3 for me! LostWinds was the first. Good but oh-so short. After the first and only boss, I thought, "cool it's starting now!" The credits came. I just sat with an open mouth.

Bomberman Blast defies awesome. Open field, all speed on countdown, minimum 4 players. All hell broke loose.

So what will be third? On the 4th of July I hope to get World of Goo and Snowboard Riot (and Rock Band 2 with lots of DLC. Duran Duran!) Mario Golf too. Gah! So many games!

Keep going, PP! There are plenty of great WiiWare games. I have over 15. lol.

KnucklesSonic8 said:

@longtimegamer: What do you mean, "still exciting"?
*runs back to TV to face online opponents. lol.

Oh and playing with CPU's online in replacement of missing people is a nice addition. The CPU's are pretty good and they make things interesting. They actually attack you when you're ahead so the other human opponents at the back of the pack can get ahead.

KnucklesSonic8 said:

@longtimegamer: Yep, I bought HVHRS. How do you want me to compare them? Like in terms of difficulty? What specifically do you wanna know?

Keep in mind, it's kinda unfair since HVHRS didn't have online play. lol. But if you want, when I compare them after you reply, I'll ignore online play.

Yeah, you're right. My mistake. Blame my quick fingers. XD
But yep, it's 271 it's just my fingers mixed up the two numbers.
See the game page for SR, Toddr. I replied to your comment there.

longtimegamer said:

@KnucklesSonic8-Well it has 4 tracks. Is there alot of short cuts and such?
I heard the high voltage racer was pretty good but too easy on all difficultys. How's the difficulty on this? Are the tracks fairly long? Any cool moments?

KnucklesSonic8

#66

KnucklesSonic8 said:

@SRP = Actually, now I have an AA Rank. And yep, everyone else has a B. I've even seen a C. :D

@longtimegamer: Difficulty definitely higher than Hot Rod Show. Tracks are straightforward and follow a design akin to Snowboard Kids on the N64. Go to the bottom of the hill then a teleporter brings you to the top. Yes, tracks are pretty long. And FTR, Hot Rod Show wasn't THAT easy.

KnucklesSonic8

#68

KnucklesSonic8 said:

@longtimegamer: NO DOUBT. No srsly, I don't regret my purchase one bit! Definitely worth 1,000 Points. There's other WiiWare games priced at 1,000 Points and they're just not worth it. This is, imho but that's just me. See on the game page that I participated in my first 4P Race more than an hour ago before I had to get off. It was so much fun. It's a lot better when you can find 4 Humans rather than having CPU fillers. I'm not saying it's not enjoyable with CPU fillers. Because it is. I just find 4P Races more frantic. With CPU fillers, I'm ahead and when my speed drops, those are the times I wonder where everyone else is... and not even 10 seconds later I get hit by 1 missile and while I'm down, another missile, then a computer zips by whilst using the boost mechanic so I'm knocked down again. XD

But srsly, with 4P I had a great time. I can't wait to play again. I REALLY wanna play right now. I wish I could. :(

High Voltage is 1,000 too. And if you're debating between getting both, get Snowboard Riot.

High Voltage = Yep, I still play. I had a multiplayer session not too long ago. One didn't like it, one did. It was fun. :) Snowboard Riot surpasses it though.

Objection said:

The perfect end to an awful day. A Sonic game I have on a PS2 game I don't play, a crappy-looking and DLC-expensive puzzle game, and a racer that seems to derive much of it fun from online play (which my wii has always failed at for whatever reason.)
@KS8-Do the items or whatever feel cheap? The reason I lost interest in MK is because I was tired of winning by just using items and getting plowed by red/blue shells when I was about to win.

Well, this is an exciting update. While I value KnucklesSonic8's elaborate comments and such, I'll probably get Snowboard Riot if IGN and this site gives it favorable reviews (no offense KnucklesSonic8 :P). Gah, I really need a racing game; heck, I just want Snowboard Kids now...

KnucklesSonic8

#76

KnucklesSonic8 said:

@Obj_Blaster: I wouldn't say cheap but the items are fairly balanced. MKWii is worse, I'll say that. lol. But you will be a target (as with any other racing game) once you hit 1st place.

@Mickeymac: Nice way to write off Snowboard Riot so quickly. <_< Your loss.

@Virus: None taken! I'm a big fan of SBK and as I mentioned earlier, it's one of the games I've been really wanting to hit the VC. This game is great.

longtimegamer said:

@KnucklesSonic8- I got it late last night. Played some on my own. I tried to look for players online but, didn't find any at that time. I played at least the first two tracks. Probably should practice the other two before I go online, just to know the layout. I guess I'll have to post my friend code on the link that Dazza provided.
By the way I saw that someone apparently got your topspot last night. Better get it back.:)

PiratePete

#78

PiratePete said:

@ KnucklesSonic8: I agree! My friend had all the N64 SBK games! The frying pan was great. Good laugh at that. Actually imho, SBK beats MK64. Honestly, I don't like that game. It had few good tracks, but the handling felt awfullt clunky. Thats why Double Dash!! rocks. And Baby Park. It wasn't the same on MK DS...

Sooooo, yes KnucklesSonic8 you've pretty much sold me on getting it. Although you'll have to wait until
1. EU release (groan)
2. When I get money. I just got Korg DS-10 and I'm saving for a holiday. 4th of July could be when I get it. And you'll probably be bored of it by then.

@Knuckles Sonic8 Does online support split screen like Mario Kart? That feature tends to help fill up games.

Anyway...thanks for the impressions. If this was four player split screen I would have already purchased it. However, right now I am still undecided.

KnucklesSonic8

#84

KnucklesSonic8 said:

@Pablo17: Split screen...? Dunno what you mean... OH. Like if you were to have 2 people? I dunno if you can have 2 people online. Never tried. Dunno, TBH.

Yep, it's 2 Players. I think it's great. Online support + BB Support alone makes it worth 1000 imho.

longtimegamer

#85

longtimegamer said:

@KnucklesSonic-Well they haven't sent an activation notic to my email yet. I don't know how long that takes.

@PiratePete-For one I think its got good music. It looks nice too. There's only 4 tracks: 1st for beginners, 2nd I don't recall, 3rd shortcuts, 4th advanced level.
It's not bad. The 4 different characters are better at different things and you can equip goggles to modify them. I think that there are only 3 types of goggles and what they modify is the same for each player.
The weapons and powers are cool. There were times when I'd get attack several times when I was trying to get up from an attack already.
One thing about the powers, read the manual because I think that one of the weapons (or powers) can attack you if you're in the lead and activate it.

I haven't got a chance to play online yet but the computer players keep you on your toes. So it's not too easy.

I'd say this game is pretty decent. You're probably going to want it for the online though ( unless you have a friend over. I don't know if you can unlock anything yet.
One more thing, I don't have a balanceboard, so I don't know how well that works.

☆☆☆Almost forgot, you can block attacks with your board. so thats cool. Also there is not alot of variety to what you can wear. I don't think you can change your board either, if I'm not mistaken.

Pablo17

#86

Pablo17 said:

By split screen online, I was talking about two players (one system) playing online against other players. (This option is in Mario Kart and a bunch of 360 games and is usually called a guest feature)

It helps fill up games because you are at least bringing two players into a game. I have been reading where people can't find other players to play against. This feature would probably help out. (Or at least help games have 3 or 4 players in them).

KnucklesSonic8 said:

PiratePete: Me and LTG have been playing online for over 2 hours!! It's that fun. I only left because I was busy. 4P Races were AWESOME. I had such a great time. I never would've thought I'd play the game online that long. I ALWAYS had people joining and leaving the match. So it wasn't always just us two. But me and LTG were always there. Then this good guy named Charlie came along and he made things more interesting. He's 3rd Highest on the tables.

In other news, I'm #1 again now with an SS Rank. :o Over 9000 Ranking points. AWESOME! :D I love playing this game.

Stratos = AI isn't that bad. They also said the game is frustrating but so is MKWii. Don't trust everything IGNorant says. >_>

Bomberman's online mode falls below this imo.

@Pablo17: Finding people isn't a problem now! :D Not many had it at the start I guess.

@Mickeymac: Well, that's too bad because you've probably missed out on SSX Blur, Shaun White Snowboarding, this and the list goes on.... Even if something doesn't appeal to you, that doesn't necessarily mean an update "sucks". Like I'm not 100% unto LIT but does that still mean the update sucks? lol. Maybe not the greatest example but y'know what I mean. :P

KnucklesSonic8 said:

Oh and guys, wait for WWW's Review. Do not let IGN's review sway you. Their review for the game didn't have much thought go into it in the first place and secondly, I completely disagree with what they're saying and the game deserves at least a 7.5, AT LEAST. The game gets more than an 8.0 in my book, though.

If you're wondering about the game, let me know. Please. I'd hate to see people not try out this great game just because the less-than-excellent "IGN" says the game is "Medicore" when it's SO not. And I'm not the only one who thinks this way. Those on WWW who have this can testify plus, someone in the comments for their review make similar comments as well.

accc said:

Yeah that IGN review was pretty dumb, they pretty much glazed over the multiplayer aspect and mostly just griped about the game's single player even though the multiplayer is clearly the focus of the game.

kendolink

kendolink said:

@ accc = Yea, IGN badly missed that point of the game. When you first go on the game the first option is Nintendo WFC. I myself am enjoying the game a lot, so much that I am the highest rank on it to show my love for this game. :) Though yea, I wish there was some more options or at least more people online. Right now there is an ok amount of players online, just waiting for everyone to get the money to purchase it. But overall I would give it at least a 7, but never a 5.5.

Wow, you really like this game right?, I hadn't commented cause I wasn't interested on this weeks games, not a bad week though, and Snowboard Riot seems better than I thoght, the only snowboard game I've liked so far is Snowboaed Kids, so your comments took me from not even consider this to putting in on my DL list ;), btw did you get my MKWii friend code right? I haven't been able to catch you online.

@KS8: As a german I have to wait for this game, but tell me (or somebody else): The time attack mode. How is this online? Is there a rank list? How big is the rank list? 10, 100, or what? Any clues, how long your record is saved? For me, thats one of the most funniest parts on Mario Kart Wii. Working again and again with the track, getting faster each turn.
Thanks for comments.

@accc: Exactly! In fact, they kept complaining about certain things but it was VERY obvious they didn't spend much time with the game. I admitted that at times, things can get a bit ridiculous like Mario Kart but obviously, they must not realize that there's a shield and such a concept as gasps dodging for a reason. They've obviously overlooked that. And they barely credited the game for it's BB Support. I've been disliking IGN's reviews as of late. Highly IGNorant with this game more so than usual. >_>

@Falk Sturmfels: I'm a heavy TA'er myself so I can understand your concerns. Yep, there's a Ranking List. All the Ranking Lists show the Top 10 players. Since I'm IN the Top 10 (2nd place) right now, I don't know if it'll show the players near to you if you were say #30, for example. Your records are always saved so I don't get the second part of your question.

@kendolink: Kendo? Is that you? So YOU'RE the top banana right now. lol. How's it feel to be the first to reach 10,000 Ranking Points, hm? I'm pretty close myself.

Ok. I finally decide to wait for the review for once but this is taking kinda long. Wouldn't it normally be up by now? Review please!

lol. Well, SilentJ, you can read our comments till then.

@Ricardo91: Like I mentioned before, IGN's review for the game is sub-par. Doesn't depict the game accurately at all. No way does the game deserve that score. AT LEAST a 7.

@Mickeymac: Well, I tried. lol. :P

@kendolink: Yeah, I know! You passed me on the charts! I gotta play more! :P

@Twilight Crow: Here's my Friend Code! 4768-7994-7902. Hope to add you ASAP! :D

KnucklesSonic - Did you get my friendcode? I copied 4 friend codes and each time I look online for joining friends, I dont see anyone.

The comments here all seem positive and I suppose there is no review coming so I just might end up buying it. Has anyone used the balance board on this?

@ Silent J
I've used the balance board for this game and it is quite good. I personally find it a bit awkward because I'm used to playing skiing games with it which involve leaning left and right, and this you lean forward and backward, but it does work well.

@Toddr
Thanks. I haven't used the balance board for anything other than wii fit so I really want to try it out on something else.

No problem. If you like using the balance board for games I really recommend we ski. It's a great game and it only costs 30 dollars.

We Ski isn't that great. SilentJ, get Shaun White Snowboarding. It's great.

@Toddr: Sure thing!

@longtimegamer: Oh, maybe I didn't add your code, then! Give it to me again (or I'll check the thread if you don't reply).

@Toddr: Can't argue there. lol. It was ambitious, but I have a hard time getting into it. Every time I tell myself to play it again, something/another game comes up in its place, in the end. :P
