Nintendo Download: 21st January 2011 (Europe)

More Capcom classics
Virtual Console is the clear winner this week with two new Capcom arcade games, but that's not to say the rest should be ignored outright. Although WiiWare only gets one new download, DSiWare gets four of them, so hopefully there's something for everyone.
Spot the Differences! (Sanuk Games, 500pts) – Another difference-spotting game, this one is strangely one letter apart from having the exact same title as a DSiWare game by a different company. We'll see if it's any good soon.
Gods vs. Humans (Zallag) – A rather straight-forward strategy title. We didn't think too much of it in our Gods vs. Humans review, but now you can decide for yourself whether the full game is worth the 1500 Wii Point price tag or not.
1942 (Virtual Console Arcade, Capcom, 800pts) – One of Capcom's most well-known vertical shoot 'em ups, this one is generally regarded as a good game, but a bit outclassed when compared to its sequels We'll have our own review available soon.
Black Tiger (Virtual Console Arcade, Capcom, 800pts) – Another action/platformer in a somewhat similar vein to Ghosts 'n Goblins, but thankfully quite a bit less difficult, despite featuring many more gameplay elements. Our review should be up within the next few days.
Rhythm Core Alpha (SoftEgg Enterprises, 500pts) – Another music creation device, this one is not designed to be flashy but simply effective, which means you'll pretty much see nothing but black and white text and backgrounds, making it also resemble DOSBox in a way. You can read more in our Rhythm Core Alpha review.
505 Tangram (GameOn, 500pts) – A puzzle game we've seen before, where you have to use a number of angular shapes in order to fill up a figure. The trick is figuring out which piece goes where. We'll let you know our thoughts soon.
Missy Mila: Twisted Tales (Planet Nemo Productions, 200pts) – Another interactive book, this one is actually a collection of five stories, so it should be a bit more appealing to those who like this sort of thing. We'll review it soon.
