Weekly WiiWare Round Up (4th Feb)

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Nintendo's WiiWare shop has 4 new releases this week, Pop Them, Drop Them SameGame, Lonpos, Family Glide Hockey, Snowboard Riot.

Pop Them, Drop Them SameGame

Release Date: Fri 30th Jan (EU)

Same Game is a simple yet engrossing puzzle game where you clear matching blocks in sets of 2 or more. Score high by clearing out more blocks at once. If you manage to clear the entire grid, you can keep on playing with a whole new layout. Getting rid of all those blocks is the key to raking in the points! Adjust the difficulty in a one-player game by trying different grid sizes and numbers of colors. Play it your way!

Up to 4 players can face off in any one of 3 multiplayer modes. "Fame Game", the most straightforward choice, is similar to the one-player version. "Shame Game"" turns the tables on the players, forcing them to go for the lowest score. Finally, in "Blame Game", it's a free-for-all as everyone vies for blocks on one big grid.

Choose from among different block styles, background graphics, and music to customize your playing experience. Same Game: Easy to learn, easy to play... hard to put down!

Lonpos

Release Date: Mon 2nd Feb (US)

Looking for a puzzle game that anyone can play, but still offers plenty to master? Look no further than Lonpos, with its straightforward premise and large variety of puzzles to solve. Each puzzle revolves around a rectangular playing field of 55 spaces. Using a set of 12 pieces, the goal is to place every piece into the playing field, filling it completely. The higher the level, the more pieces you'll need to fit correctly into the playing field. Challenge yourself with two single-player modes or bring a friend to compete against or cooperate with. When you think your skills are worthy, use Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to check out how you compare with other LONPOS players or download additional puzzles and backgrounds.
