Nintendo's WiiWare original game service is in for a busy week, as three new games populate its library. Headlining the slate is Konami's Ant Nation, a strategy game in which players condition a colony of ants to withstand brutal torture at the hands of 10-year-olds everywhere. Players will be able to wield lasers, magnifying glasses, and bolts of lightning to aid them in the survival of the fittest simulator, which is available for 700 Wii points ($7).

Ant Nation is joined on WiiWare by Bplus' Bit Boy, an adventure game where players progress through a variety of progressively more technologically advanced environments. Featuring a cooperative mode for up to two players, Bit Boy can be bought for 600 Wii points ($6). Lastly, JV Games has released Incoming!. Available for 500 Wii points ($5), the strategy game pits up to two players in a competitive tank-combat game.
