Moving its way up!

It's time to take a look at the most popular WiiWare titles available on the Wii Shop Channel. If you're feeling adventurous you can even take a look for yourself by simply logging on to your Wii Shop Channel, heading into the WiiWare section and then viewing "Popular Games". It's that easy!

We compile this list using the USA region Wii Shop channel, so if you live elsewhere your list will probably be quite a bit different. Please feel free to post your region's findings below as always.

Keep in mind that the list below is a measure of actual sales made recently, not of the total time the game has been available for sale.

Here is the list for the 19th of August:

1 (2) - Reel Fishing Challenge
2 (3) - My Aquarium
3 (17) - NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits
4 (6) - Sexy Poker
5 (8) - My Pokémon Ranch
6 (5) - World of Goo
7 (1) - Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1
8 (7) - Final Fantasy IV: The After Years
9 (10) - Tetris Party
10 (9) - Texas Hold'em Tournament
11 (4) - Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My life as a Darklord
12 (12) - Dr Mario Online Rx

14 (13) - Family Mini Golf
15 (14) - Overturn
16 (15) - Defend Your Castle
17 (16) - BUST-A-MOVE Plus!
18 (-) - Brain Challenge
19 (20) - Cue Sports - Pool Revolution
20 (18) - Ant Nation

* (N) - Denotes a brand new entry on the Top 20
* (-) - Denotes a game that was not on the Top 20 last week

Once again the chart shows that fish sell. The top two entries on this week's Top 20, Reel Fishing Challenge and My Aquarium are both sitting pretty at #1 and #2 respectively. Last week's #1 title Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 didn't hang on to the top spot long, dropping down six spots to #7 this week.

We didn't see any new entries in this week's Top 20, other than the second appearance of Brain Challenge, but there was quite a bit of movement in the top section of the Top 20.

The big climber this week was obviously NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits, which jumped up 14 places to #3. Could this be our next #1 title on the chart? The big dropper this week was Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My life as a Darklord, which dropped seven spots to #11. Can this title hang around on the charts as long as its predecessor?

Due to Brain Challenge making a reappearance on the Top 20, HB Arcade Cards dropped off this week.
