Another retro fighter, and more
Thankfully, the wait for another Virtual Console title wasn't long - Surely you managed to get by with just one week of no new retro games? It's accompanied by the first of Gamebridge's GO Series, and five other games.
Fishie Fishie (500pts, DK Games) – The only WiiWare title this week. Fairly similar to certain online flash games, in this, you play as a fish who is trying to become the biggest and baddest creature in the waters. To do this you'll have to feed on smaller fish, gradually growing in size and thus being able to eat larger fish. We thought it was pretty good, as you can read in our Fishie Fishie review
Samurai Shodown III (900pts, D4 Enterprise) – Not as highly regarded as Samurai Shodown II, this third entry in the sword-fighting series suffered a bit from slowdown and balancing issues. We'll find out if it's still any good soon.
GO Series: 10 Second Run (200pts, Gamebridge) – The first in Gamebridge's GO Series, an effort to release Japanese DSiWare game elsewhere, this one is a very minimalistic-looking platformer game in which you control a little stick-man as he tries to make it to the goal as fast as possible. Of course, you'll have to dodge obstacles and stuff as well, but be quick about it, because as the title implies, you've only got 10 seconds. We'll have a review soon.
Where's Wally? Travel Pack 2 (500pts, Ludia Inc) – Another set of levels to search for Wally in, we can't imagine this being too different from the pack released last week. We'll have a review available in the next few days.
Jazzy Billiards (500pts, Arc System Works) – A fairly standard billiards title, which comes close to being good, but doesn't quite make it. Not very jazzy, really! You can read what we thought in our Jazzy Billiards review.
My Farm (200pts, BiP Media) – A chunk of a 2-year old browser game, which has now been ported to DSiWare. As you can imagine, it's just a simple little game in which you take care of a farm. It's not too bad, as evidenced in our My Farm review.
Again, no detailed press release this week, so you'll just have to go by our word. Will you be getting anything?
