Nintendo Download: 12th November 2010 (Europe)

Posted by Marcel van Duyn

A little bit more for every service, plus a new demo

With five new games and a demo on offer this week, you'd think that it would be pretty good overall. Unfortunately, only the Virtual Console game and the demo make up most of this week's goodness - The other four are all games North America already got, and none of them were very good.


Cruise Party (Enjoy Gaming, 800pts) – A small collection of gambling games which you play on a cruise ship. Our Cruise Party review will tell you if this is worth the gamble.

Enjoy Your Massage! (Microforum, 500pts) – This is basically just a very thinly veiled version of Simon Says, in which you massage the correct areas on various women's backs. Succeed, and you'll be rewarded with pictures of said girls to gaze at while you wonder why exactly you spent money on the game. Our Enjoy Your Massage! review will tell you why to skip this massage.

WiiWare demos

One more demo is added to the bunch of demos still available from last week:

Chronos Twins DX (EnjoyUp Games) – A remake of an old DS game only released in Europe. It's already got a cheaper price on WiiWare here than in North America, but now you can also try a free demo. Check out our Chronos Twins DX review to help you make a decision.

Virtual Console

Spin Master (D4 Enterprise, 900 points) – Another title to bolster the VC's Neo Geo library, this is a cartoony action platformer created by Data East. Like most Neo Geo platformers, it can either be played alone or with two players simultaneously. We'll have a review available soon.


Robot Rescue (Teyon, 200 Points) — Just a few days short of a release one year after North America, this is a moderately fun little puzzle game. Not bad, but not spectacular either. Read our Robot Rescue review to find out more.

Legendary Wars: T-Rex Rumble (Interplay, 800 Points) — A strategy title from Interplay originally intended to be a retail game, which is actually fairly decent. You can read our thoughts in our Legendary Wars: T-Rex Rumble review.

That's all for this week. Will you be getting anything?

Chronos Twins will be nice for those who missed it the first time around.

Legendary Wars: T-Rex Rumble - awesome. Instant download if it's available in Aus.

Pfft! Educating your customers about quality products on your service is for the birds and Europeans (and Australians and New Zealanders, unless I'm mistaken).

Sadly, we are not amongst those important ones in Europe.
We get to sit in a corner and cry with you Americans.

It's a weak week for WiiWare. The only thing that interests me is the Chronos Twins Demo. Ok, cannot expect a top-quality game every single week. And there are still enough good ones I haven't bought yet.

No WiiWare in Australia this week. And no new demo either. We only have 3 of Europe's 5 and its only been a week. By the time the demos finish we will have missed so many demos. I'm sure you Americans will get them soon and get more than us probably,

I'm well pleased with the Chronos Twins demo.

I was contemplating buying this, now I've played the demo I've it's got heavy controls, is confusing and plain unfriendly.

Money saved here.

Its still confusing with the classic controller.

No WiiWare in Australia this week.

You're really not missing anything.

Enjoy Your Shovelware.

Seriously, I don't think I'll bother with DSiWare anymore, it's just unbelievably crap.



FonistofCruxis said:

What a crap update, at least sonic colours is out this week. @LuWiiGi Dsiware didn't have a very good update but it's better than the crap that wiiware got this week.
