It's time to take a look at the most popular WiiWare titles available on the Wii Shop Channel. If you're feeling adventurous you can even take a look for yourself by simply logging on to your Wii Shop Channel, heading into the WiiWare section and then viewing "Popular Games". It's that easy!
We compile this list using the USA region Wii Shop channel, so if you live elsewhere your list will probably be quite a bit different. Please feel free to post your region's findings below as always.
Keep in mind that the list below is a measure of actual sales made recently, not of the total time the game has been available for sale.

Well the "Fabulous Five" didn't last long, as Crystal Defenders R1 jumped up three notches into the fifth spot supplanting Hudson's Onslaught title. Don't feel too bad for Onslaught, as it only fell one spot to #6. As usual, World of Goo retains the top spot and who knows how much longer its incredible run at #1 will last.
The big climber this week was Konami's Sandy Beach, which jumped up four spots to #13. And not only did Bit.Trip Beat not fall off the charts after placing #20 last week, but it managed to jump up three spots to #17. Wild West Guns even managed to pop up three spots as well. The big dropper this week was Equilibrio, which plummeted a whopping six spots down to #20. Could this title be on its way to a quick exit from the Top 20?
It was a strange week as most of the movement came from the bottom half of the Top 20, with very little movement in the top half of the chart. There were also no new entries on the Top 20 this week either.
