From tidying up the galaxy to trying out life as a meerkat, this week’s new game downloads from Nintendo offer a wealth of wonderfully unusual activities.
For the Nintendo DSiWare™ service, Flametail™ invites players to incinerate all manner of space garbage, while Don’t Cross The Line puts timeless puzzle-solving thrills in the palms of their hands. As a futuristic firefighter in Fire Panic, you face the continuous challenge of extinguishing more and more fires that keep flaring up. In Flips: The Magic Faraway Tree Jo, Bessie and Fanny take their cousin Rick on an adventure he’ll never forget to the magic Faraway Tree, where he meets Moon-Face, Silky the fairy and Saucepan Man.
Also, Nintendo DSiWare users have just a few more days to download the hilarious hand-held battle game Photo Dojo™ for zero Nintendo DSi Points™. (Starting June 11, the game will require 200 Nintendo DSi Points for download.)
Meanwhile, fresh additions to the WiiWare™ service include the new fishing-simulation sequel Reel Fishing® Challenge II, the furry fun of Lead the Meerkats™, and finally, each zoo enclosure is a “hole” in the Zoo Disc Golf course. The objective of the game is to get your disc into each “goal” using the fewest number of throws – the “goal” being the Emergency Animal Control station in each enclosure.
