Nintendo Download: 27th August (Europe)
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
A slightly lower amount of releases this time
It's the first time in a few weeks that Europe has to make do without a new Virtual Console game, but you can't really complain too much: we've had some great titles recently and we'll be getting another game in the form of Samurai Shodown III next week. Hopefully an excellent WiiWare platformer and some other stuff will tide you over until then.
And Yet It Moves (1000pts, Broken Rules) – A fairly unique platformer previously released on PC, in which the main gameplay mechanic is being able to freely rotate the world to get around more easily. This WiiWare version features extra levels and much smoother controls, which you can read all about in our And Yet It Moves review.
Tales of Elastic Boy: Mission 1 (600pts, Lexis Numerique) – Also a platformer, by the creators of the PooYoos games. Pretty much nothing was revealed about this title until a few days ago, so we're going into this one without knowing a lot about what to expect. We'll have a review for you soon.
Where's Wally? Travel Pack 1 (500pts, Ludia Inc) – Announced almost a year ago, this seems to be not much more than a portable, virtual version of the Where's Wally/Waldo books most people are familiar with, requiring you to locate the titular character somewhere within a large image. We should have a review in the next few days.
myNotebook: Carbon and Pearl (500pts, Nnooo) – The first two out of three new iterations of Nnooo's notebook application, which feature more pages and features than the previous set of three. For those in desperate need of a digital notebook, it's pretty good, and more worth it than the older titles. Read our myNotebook: Carbon, Pearl and Tan review to find out why.
No official press release again this week, at least, not on time! Will you be getting any of these four (or technically, five) games?
