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.
