Nintendo Download: 4th February 2011 (Europe)
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
It's another clearly DSiWare-oriented week this time, with four new titles released on the service. WiiWare and Virtual Console only get one game each, along with another WiiWare demo.
Pucca's Kisses Game (Bigben Interactive, 1000pts) – What seems to be a platformer game, based on the surprisingly popular franchise which has its own animated series and tons of merchandise, we'll have a look and see if it's worth your money or not.
Racers' Islands: Crazy Racers (Zallag) – A Mario Kart-esque racer, we unfortunately didn't think too highly of it in our Racers' Islands: Crazy Racers review, but now you also have a demo to try out for yourself.
S.C.A.T.: Special Cybernetic Attack Team (NES, Natsume, 600pts) – Originally released in Europe as Action in New York, this is another victim of the "fake import" moniker, as we've been given the North American version in exchange for a price increase of 100 points. We'll have a review soon.
Animal Boxing (Gammick Entertainment, 800pts) – Exactly as it says on the tin, this is a boxing game starring animals. While Gammick has produced some good titles for DSiWare, we didn't think this was one of them! Read more in our Animal Boxing review.
Digger Dan & Kaboom (Virtual Playground, 500pts) – Ignore the strange concept art and graphics, and this is a shockingly entertaining puzzle game, able to take on some of the best DSiWare has to offer. You can see what we thought in our Digger Dan & Kaboom review.
Glory Days - Tactical Defense (odenis studio, 200pts) – An overhead strategy game which is somewhat similar to Pop Island in looks only, it doesn't quite reach the level of the developer's other games, but still manages to be quite fun. You can read our Glory Days - Tactical Defense review for the lowdown.
Gold Fever (Tik Games, 500pts) – The only truly "new" DSiWare title this week, we can't really say we know anything about this title. We'll try to get a review to you ASAP.
So, will you be spending any money on this week's releases?
