Nintendo Download: 25th June (Europe)
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
Hidden gems galore?
A lot of today's game titles might not say much to some people, but rest assured there's some good picks in this bunch. WiiWare gets three games, two of them great, and one not-yet-reviewed-but-very-likely-also-great. DSiWare's got five new titles of which the only reviewed one is good as well. The rest of the bunch could be more sleeper hits - Or not! The Virtual Console sadly misses out this week, but you should still be playing Mario Tennis anyway!
Art Style: light trax (600pts - Nintendo) -- Another WiiWare Art Style offering, this one takes inspiration from GBA title Dotstream, featuring a multitude of coloured lines racing each other across a very cyberspace-like environment. Our Art Style: light trax review should help to convince you to make this one of your next purchases.
The Tales of Bearsworth Manor: Chaotic Conflicts (1000pts - Square Enix) -- Another strange new title from Square, this one has you throwing an army of bears into storybooks to defeat the evil Badbears. It's just as strange as it sounds, but that doesn't stop it from being a great game, as our The Tales of Bearsworth Manor: Chaotic Conflicts review will tell you.
The Tales of Bearsworth Manor: Puzzling Pages (1000pts - Square Enix) -- A companion release of sorts, we assume this one will be at least somewhat similar to the other title. We don't have a review yet, but we will soon!
Real Crimes: Jack the Ripper (800pts - Virtual Playground) -- An object-finding game in which you have to scour large pictures to find the listed items. It's quite weird that we haven't had anything like this on DSiWare until now, but for what it is it's actually a pretty good game. Our Real Crimes: Jack the Ripper review will tell you everything you need to know.
24/7 Solitaire (500pts - GameOn) -- A nice break from the Sudoku overload, as there are barely any Solitaire titles available on DSiWare. It features multiple variations on the game, so it might be worth a look. Look out for a review!
Music On: Retro Keyboard (200pts - Abylight) -- Another keyboard music-making tool, but this time slightly different, as it's a retro keyboard instead of an electric one. We thought the last title was ok, so expect something similar here!
Hello Flowerz (500pts - Virtual Toys) -- A fairly self-explanatory flower-keeping game. You have to water and take care of all your plants every day or possibly face the consequences! That's about all we know, really - Stay tuned for our review!
Date or Ditch (500pts - Gameloft) -- A dating game, pretty much. Stay classy, Gameloft! Review soon.
Will you be trying your luck on any of the unreviewed games?
