  • News EU WiiWare Update: Midnight Bowling and Potpourrii

    Let's pretend there were no new WiiWare games this week and call it a day. It'd probably be better than what we really got.

    First up is the dreadful Midnight Bowling, which was released in the US earlier this week. Not much companies have bothered to make any competition for Wii Sports's bowling minigame yet - This is probably the reason why. Midnight Bowling throws everything Wii Sports did so..

  • News USA WiiWare Update: Midnight Bowling And MadStone

    There is something for everyone today on the Wii Shop. First up is Midnight Bowling, another successful Gameloft cellphone game now brought lovingly to WiiWare.

  • News Gameloft's Brain Challenge Comes To WiiWare

    A while ago we noticed that the OFLC and the USK rated Gameloft's Brain Challenge for the Wii. Unsure if it was a WiiWare game or not, we decided to hold off on adding it to the site.

    The PEGI has now rated the game as well, however, and they've revealed that it is actually for WiiWare. Brain Challenge is similar to games like Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training for the DS - Basically, you take a few..

  • News USA WiiWare Update: Midnight Pool

    This week’s WiiWare release took us by surprise – we knew that Midnight Pool was coming out eventually, but had no idea it would be this soon - very little has been seen or heard about this game. What we do know is that it’s based on Gameloft’s mobile phone version, which could be a good or bad thing, depending on your opinion of mobile phone games!

    European gamers will have something to look forward to this coming Friday as GameLoft’s lightgun-like shooter Wild West Guns is up on WiiWare. This isn’t just an idle internet rumour. We have it on good authority that this will indeed be out on Friday for 1000 Wii points.

    The PEGI has rated Midnight Bowling, which we assume will be the first title to see release in Europe. It will be a slightly upgraded port of the original mobile game where you..

  • News Block Breaker Deluxe Coming to WiiWare

    Gameloft isn’t really a company that you’d associate with top-rank videogaming, thanks to the fact that it has only really dabbled in the notoriously inconsistent world of mobile phone software. That said, it’s one of the better companies currently working in that sphere of interactive entertainment.

    Looking to expand into the domestic market, Gameloft has announced that it will be releasing..
