After hitting some troublesome winds while casting off with Episode 3, Telltale Games is back on track with the WiiWare installment of its episodic Tales of Monkey Island adventure series. Today, the penultimate installment in Telltale's new Monkey Island series, The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood, is available through Nintendo's original downloadable game service for 1,000 Wii points ($10).

Monkey Island Episode 4 leads a trio of other additions to WiiWare. Hudson's My Zoo is available for 500 Wii points ($5) and offers gamers the chance to raise and care for eight animal types, with an additional four offered as downloadable content. Copter Crisis, from Digital Leisure, also sells for 500 Wii points ($5) and sees gamers hoping into the carriage of a rescue helicopter undertaking a variety of missions. Lastly, JV Games' Christmas Clix offers a variety of yuletide minigames for 1,000 Wii points ($10).

Nintendo's DSi Shop also has a four-pack of games on tap this week. Electronic Arts' Foto Face: The Face Stealer Strikes uses the handheld's cameras and microphone, allowing gamers to insert themselves into the platformer's 15 stages. It is available for 800 DSi points ($8). PopCap's addictive word-puzzle game Bookworm also arrives on Nintendo's portable for 500 DSi points ($5).

Gamers looking for one more version of Sudoku can pick up Digital Leisure's Sudoku Challenge! for 500 DSi points ($5). The math-based puzzler will likely keep most Sudoku players busy for quite some time, as it contains 100 million different puzzles. Nintendo also released the latest installment in its Master of Illusion Express magic trick series for 200 DSi points ($2).

Virtual Console gamers hoping to see either Super Smash Bros. or Pilotwings are in for disappointment this week. Instead, the Wii's old-school game service receives SNES beat-'em-up The Combatribes for 800 Wii points ($8). Gamers can also pick up the arcade action puzzler Solomon's Key for 600 Wii points ($6).
