Flowerworks HD to Burst Into Life on the Wii U eShop
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Undergoing approval with Nintendo
Veteran Nintendo download gamers may remember Flowerworks on WiiWare, a title we described as "a bit goofy, cute and colourful and a lot of fun" as we awarded it 8/10 in our review. Its peculiar premise of pollinating plants for spectacular visual fireworks was charming, with pointer controls that were perfect at some points and awkward at others; we considered it a gem of the service.
The good news is that developer Nocturnal Entertainment, after being quiet for a few years, has confirmed it's bringing the game to the Wii U eShop as Flowerworks HD: Follie's Adventure. The project has been six months in the works as Nintendo provided loan devkits, and the developer has published seven screenshots to show off the new engine supporting this entry; you can see all of these screens in the gallery at the end of this article.
