Block Breaker Deluxe

The first is Block Breaker Deluxe, which retails for 800 points and is an enhanced version of an old mobile phone game. But don’t let that put you off – by all accounts the title is jolly good fun. As always, our review will follow shortly after we’ve play tested it to destruction.

The second game is a rather more sedate affair. Cocoto Fishing Master costs 700 points and uses the Wiimote as a virtual fishing rod and gives you the chance to avoid the ignominy of standing on the banks of a pond/river for hours looking like a fool. You can do it in the comfort of your own living room, instead! Again, our review will be online as soon as we’ve caught a few whoppers.

Elsewhere, the Virtual Console channel has been gifted with just one game, but boy is it a good one. SNK’s legendary Samuari Shodown is one of the best 2D fighters in existence and is well worth a look for those of you that like nothing more than chopping people in two with a sharp blade.
