This week, Wii owners get to pretty up their screen with a new Art Style game or try their hand at a strange storybook tale put out by Square Enix. On DSiWare, there's quite a few puzzle games to try out alongside some dinosaur hunting to even things out. No new Virtual Console games are available but you guys are probably used to this release routine by now.
Art Style: Rotozoa puts you in control of a tiny organism who absorbs nearby goobugs in order to grow its tentacles. You can either choose to grow as big as possible or have one of the tentacles reach a particular length. Here's the catch: the little goobugs must match the correct tentacle and you can't let the other tentacles touch the wrong goobug. Carefully control your own evolution for 600 Wii Points.
The Tales of Bearsworth Manor: Chaotic Conflicts and The Tales of Bearsworth Manor: Puzzling Pages offer similar gameplay with different goals each. In Chaotic Conflicts, you're throwing paper bears (weird!) to defend blue jewels whereas Puzzling Pages has you collecting red candies. Both games have 30 stages each and deal with a different child related to the storyline. Each title is worth 1,000 Wii Points.
Spin Six challenges players to rotate and match numbered tiles to make them disappear while creating chains of uninterrupted shifting and removal of tiles. Four modes offer a variety of ways to play: getting a high score, eliminating tiles as fast as possible, getting a high chain, or solving a puzzle. Master these numbers for 500 DSi Points.
Puffins: Let's Fish! is all about puffins swimming to get a nice meal. Of course, they'll be treading dangerous waters so you'll have to keep them from being lunch themselves. Satisfy the hunger for 500 DSi Points.
Word Swap features three classic pen-and-paper games: Word Unscrambler, Anagram Hunt, and Hangman. Extensive dictionaries ensure there'll be something for beginner and expert players alike. 500 DSi Points nabs you this word cruncher.
Super Swap has you switching blocks to form matching groups of three in order for them to disappear. Blocks can move in one of four directions but you better do it fast before the blocks hit the top of the screen. 500 DSi Points will let anyone swap as they please.
Legendary Wars: T-Rex Rumble has a tiny tribe of humans struggling to survive. Manage your group well as those seeking out food will need the help of fighters fighting against dinosaurs. Try your shot at keeping the human race alive for 800 DSi Points.
This week's "Big Name Game" for WarioWare D.I.Y. is by Treehouse. They are Nintendo's game localization team and they've put out a couple of microgames to try out.
