Citizens of Earth (Wii U eShop)

Citizens, Unite Up!!

ATTENTION ALL RESIDENTS OF THIS FINE, BLUE PLANET WE CALL EARTH!

Breezeblox (Wii U eShop)

Breezy

One of a growing number of indie titles appearing on the Wii U eShop, Breezeblox is a block-rolling puzzle game from début developer Brennan Maddox that, on first glance, seems to owe more than a little to mobigame's cube-based classic EDGE.
