Nintendo announced three Art Style games at once for Europe, treating them as a set. Statements made by developer Skip also indicate that there may not be more Art Style for a while. Nintendo may have already proved us wrong this morning -- as of the time of writing, they haven't announced the relea...

Four new WiiWare titles came down the tubes in Europe and Australia today, and the selection couldn't be more diverse. Art Style: Cubello and Strong Bad Episode 3: Baddest of the Bands you'll already know about, but CueSports and Yummy Yummy Cooking Jam are more mysterious beasts. The former...

Two of the three Art Style games out on WiiWare are remakes of Game Boy Advance bit Generations games (possibly more; at the time this post is being written, today's games have yet to be announced, so forgive us if we neglect a fourth Art Style). The GBA games were characterized by simple gameplay...

When I first played Rotohex, I understood on a basic level how I was supposed to play the game, but I couldn't imagine a distant future in which I could play the game. I could not make my mind process the act of rotating triangles to create same-colored hexagons. I think it's the hexagons -- whate...

Nintendo has been making a habit of releasing these Art Style games onto WiiWare, but not really giving us enough info in the announcement. First it was Orbient, then Cubello, and now, it's ROTOHEX. And, just as with those games, this one is another remake of a bit Generations title for the GBA, ...

Okay, so WiiWare is overrun with puzzle games. The download service is really the perfect venue for simplistic, single-screen games such as falling block puzzlers, and developers know that. The hardest part is coming up with the concept for the game, and then the work can be done on a small budget...

Two more games presumed to be Art Style remakes of bit Generations games showed up on the OFLC database: Rotohex and Cubello. Rotohex was the original name for Dialhex, a puzzle game involving rotating triangles to form same-colored hexagons, back when the series was known as Digitylish. The GBA ga...

The release of Art Style: Orbient yesterday got us thinking about WiiWare and how it's a great means to deliver gaming content that may otherwise not be able to reach us. The Virtual Console gets the occasional import game and Nintendo can even deliver remakes of titles that were previously Japan-o...

The Nintendo Channel updated with fresh videos today, most important of which is a gameplay video showing off Nintendo's new WiiWare title, Art Style: Orbient. Our own JC noted that the title looked a lot like Orbital, a Bit Generations game for the GBA. Sure enough, it is! Head past the break f...
