House of Mario adds RPG/puzzle game to DSiWare alongside 99Bullets and 3D Twist & Match; WiiWare welcomes Overflow.
First out of the gate today is Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords (800 DSi points, or $8) for the DSiWare. Originally released in 2007 for the PSP, DS, PC, Wii, and Xbox 360, the Bejeweled-style role-playing/puzzle hybrid game is now available as a game download for Nintendo's portable. The title sports both a single-player campaign with 150 levels, as well as a multiplayer option.
Also out now on DSiWare is 99Bullets (500 DSi points, or $5). From EnjoyUp Games, the space shooter is billed as having a "retro" feel and has players controlling V-99, a ship with 99 bullets to use in each level. The title boasts more than 10 levels, boss fights, and an Arcade mode.
The last DSiWare game out now is 3D Twist & Match (200 DSi points, or $2). The game has players picking up and rotating 3D objects to match their silhouettes. The game sports 10 themes, three difficulty options, 200 objects, and "oodles" of trophies to unlock.
Switching to WiiWare, Nintendo added just one new game to the download spot today, Overflow (500 Wii points, or $5). The puzzle game has players collecting multicolored fuel, which was spilled all throughout the game's 30 levels. Gamers will use the Wii Remote to place objects in strategic locations to guide the fuel back to where it belongs. After players collect the fuel, they'll be tasked with mixing the liquid to make new colors.
QUOTE from article: "The Mario Factory today updated its digital storefront with four new games including the latest Puzzle Quest title and a space-bound arcade style shooter." This article is wrong. Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords is NOT the "latest" Puzzle Quest game, there were two releases AFTER that game, Puzzle Quest: Galactrix and Puzzle Quest 2. Who writes these articles, they can't even get their facts straight? Oh and way to go Nintendo, releasing a 4 year old game for the lame WiiWare. Fail again!
