NintendoWare Weekly: VVVVVV, Bionic Commando

Two games hit the eShop today, and they both seem worthwhile! Terry Cavanagh's devious puzzle platformer, VVVVVV, is now playable on the go, courtesy of Nicalis. Bionic Commando is also made portable, courtesy of ... the Game Boy version Capcom made years ago.

On DSiWare you can get Cake Ninja, though you'd probably hate yourself for buying such an outright Fruit Ninja clone. Get it only if you're lacking a conscience, much like its developers.

WiiWare 3DS eShop
  • VVVVVV (Nicalis, 1 player, $7.99): Captain Viridian and his crew are trapped in a series of abstract mazes, with only Viridian's gravity-flipping power to aid in their escape.
  • Bionic Commando (Game Boy) (Capcom, 1 player, $3.99): Rad Spencer moves into monochrome, in a game based on the NES adventure (but with the futuristic Doriaze Army instead of Nazi stand-ins.)
  • Cake Ninja (Cypronia, 1-2 players, $4.99/500 DSi Points): Imagine Fruit Ninja, but with cake, and a more sexist premise. This is exactly that.
  • Slingo Supreme (Magellan Interactive, 1 player, $7.99/800 DSi Points): The slot/bingo puzzle game, with daily challenges, new powerups, and a "supreme" mode that lets you build levels.
