remember on the wii you pointed the wiimote at the tv and you could use it as a mouse for selecting stuff?

well, a new eshop game for switch world of goo was also on the wii. this game used the pointer controls of the wiimote.

so the switch version....how can i play it without a wiimote and sensor bar?

gamexplain...explains

you can also play the game with the touch screen in handheld mode!

didnt know that.

Skyward Sword used the gyro for pointing. It's why I hope they fix up that game for a switch remaster.... With all its problems fixed, it would probably be my favorite of the OoT-style games, right after Wind Waker.
