Nintendo doesn't have a featured headliner coming to its Wii and DSi online store this week, but between three WiiWare titles and four DSi games, platform owners may just find something to pique their interest.
On WiiWare, Gevo Entertainment has released its hack-and-slash action adventure GhostSlayer for 600 Wii points ($6). GhostSlayer sees gamers wading through hordes of the undead across three difficulty settings in an effort to vanquish the diabolical Ghost Queen. Though it is compatible with the Wii MotionPlus add-on, gamers do not need the precision-enhancing peripheral to play the game.
Those looking for more family-friendly fare can pick up Big John Games' Mouse House or Aksys Games' Family Go-Kart Racing. Mouse House is available for 600 Wii points ($6) and sees gamers guiding a googly-eyed rodent through 100 different logic-based puzzles. Aksys' 500-Wii-point ($5) kart racer sees family members Billy, Sarah, Daddy, and Mommy joined by Auntie and Gramps as they zip through 12 different power-up-fueled tracks.
Nintendo's Aura-Aura Climber scales DSiWare this week for 200 DSi points ($2). The game sees the titular gas giant attempting to ascend the heavens after falling to Earth, avoiding enemies and picking up power-ups to aid him on his way. Firemint's 2-million-unit-selling iPhone game Flight Control makes its way to the DSi for 500 DSi points ($5). The tense strategy title drops players into the role of air-traffic controller, charging them with successfully negotiating the arrival and departure of a variety of aircraft.
Xform's Flipper also costs 500 DSi points ($5). It sees gamers assuming the role of a young boy who is in pursuit of his stolen goldfish. The puzzle-platformer features a destruction and reconstruction mechanic, where players must build up or destroy certain areas to clear levels. Neko Entertainment's Faceez rounds out this week's Nintendo Store update, providing gamers with new ways to play with the handheld's built-in camera for 200 DSi points ($2).
