Wii Review Round-up 14


Toki Tori (WiiWare)

One of the WiiWare launch titles, this is a nice puzzler where you need to guide your funny-looking chick to his eggs. Quite challenging at times and a real noodle-bender, so people addicted to action games need not apply. I made it all the way to the underwater levels before throwing in the towel, but there’s always a chance I’ll revisit it.

Lost Winds (WiiWare)

Another early WiiWare entry and one that got a lot of well-deserved press and a long run in the Top 20 downloads list in the Wii Shop. It’s a great-looking platform game using wind generated by motions to help a little boy jump and get through various puzzles to help out a Wind Spirit in his quest to stop an ancient evil that’s been freed. A longer sequel has also been released, so if you’re a fan you’ll want to give that a go as well.

Nyxquest (Icarian): Kindred Spirits (WiiWare)

Another platform game with excellent visuals and interesting mechanics like Lost Winds; these are the twin champions of platforming on WiiWare at the moment and not to be missed by genre fans. Players guide Nyx on her quest to find Icarus and save the world using the remote to create updrafts. The developers at Over The Top games have really done themselves proud with this title so definitely give it a try!
