Posted by Corbie Dillard

Two new Roogoo titles are in stores now.

Southpeak Games has recently announced that their two new Roogoo titles are now in stores. Roogoo Twisted Towers is now available for the Nintendo Wii console and Roogoo Attack is available for the Nintendo DS.

Both games continue the addictive puzzle gameplay of the original Xbox Live Arcade release and both offer unique play control twists for the respective consoles. Below are snippets of information on each title as well as game play trailers showing the games in action.

The planet Roo was once a magical, happy place, powered by falling shapes known as Magical Meteors and populated by beings known as the Roogoo. Over time, some Roogoo began to abuse the powers of the Magical Meteors for greed and corruption, devastating the planet and plunging it into darkness. These fallen Roogoo are now known as the Meemoo. Your quest, as Roogoo, is to foil the Meemoo's activities of corruption and restore Planet Roo to its former glory.

Based on the critically-acclaimed Roogoo for Xbox Live Arcade, this game allows you to continue Roogoo's quest to ensure that the Magical Meteors can reach planet Roo and revive it with happiness and joy. But look out - the Meemoos will not let their energy source go without a fight!

Features:

  • Use your Wii Remote™ and Nunchuk™ skills to complete levels
  • 10 distinctive environments with 100+ levels
  • Co-op campaign mode available throughout the entire game with alternating puzzle playing/fighting using tools such as hammers, nets and upgrades
  • Up to 4 players, "Party Play" has multiple group minigames
  • Introduces 8 + level bosses such as "The Giant Squid" who will throw and block your falling shapes in epic puzzle boss fights
  • Connect the Wii™ version to Roogoo Attack for Nintendo DS™ to unlock additional levels in all 10 environments on both Wii™ and DS™ versions
  • Entertaining short story segments
  • Based on the critically-acclaimed XBLA game Roogoo

I never played the XBLA version but it looks pretty fun! I see that they are including a connectivity feature between the Wii and DS versions. Wasn't there a similar feature like that in Geometry Wars for Wii and DS too?

Come on people, this is a great puzzler. Simple yet obscenely addictive. I might even go so far as to call it the most underrated puzzlers I've ever come across.

I might give the DS version a try; I think it will play better on the DS than the Wii. Plus, I can just rent the Wii version and unlock the additional levels. Although, I may just wait until the review just to be on the safe side.:)

We should have a review soon. Of the two, I think the DS version is the one I'd go with if I had to pick only one.

I'll be interested in the review. Initial views of this didn't excite me, but for a budget price I don't mind picking up the odd oddball puzzler on disc (see Minon and coming soon Octomania).
