NintendoWare Weekly: Play with Birds, Escape Trick

Today, you have the choice between carefree flight and life-or-death escape. On WiiWare, a minigame collection called Play with Birds lets you ... play with birds. Meanwhile, on DSiWare, you can attempt to find a way out of the mysterious prison into which you've been thrown unjustly.

For a different kind of high stakes, DSiWare's Art of Ink lets you simulate tattooing your customers. You'd better do it right, because there's no DSiWare laser tattoo removal game yet.%Gallery-120842%%Gallery-120841%
