Re-join the crew

It's not very often that WiiWare games get updated, but Sabarasa has bucked the trend to bring out a patch for its on-rails shooter Horizon Riders.

The free update, available now from the North American Wii Shop Channel, adjusts the control scheme so that the avatar can be controlled with the Nunchuk's analogue stick. Previously the character could only be moved with twists of the Wii Remote, unless you had a Balance Board to foot; the peripheral could also be used to shift left and right.

As you can read in our Horizon Riders review, we already quite enjoyed the game. We've tested the update and it indeed works as described — get yourself onto that Wii Shop if you want to download the fix.
