Tales of Elastic Boy: Mission 1 (WiiWare)

Elastic fantastic?

While still creating a line of educational games on WiiWare, Lexis Numerique decided to work on a platforming series alongside it. Sticking with a similar graphical style clearly geared towards younger gamers, does this fare well against other games in the genre currently available?

My Planetarium Gazes Out Into the Expanding WiiWare Library

Hudson's galactic follow-up to its My Aquarium series

The Roller Derby Game of Your Dreams is Coming to WiiWare

Girls on rollerskates at last

"What's a roller derby?", the curious among you may have asked. It's a sport in which two teams of five players on rollerskates try to score points against each other. It's fast, physical and hardly what you'd call "mainstream", which makes it a perfect candidate for a transition to Wii. That's exactly what's happening, as Frozen Codebase is..
