NintendoWare Weekly: Calculators, Clocks, and Fish


This week, Nintendo has a double dose of downloads -- both on the DSi -- for the Animal Crossing fans out there. Complementing Nintendo's handheld offerings are one new WiiWare game and a C64 title for the Virtual Console. So, quit wasting time here and head past the break to check out this week's content on the DSi and Wii.


  • Animal Crossing Calculator (Nintendo, 1 player, 200 Nintendo DSi Points): It's a calculator themed after Animal Crossing. 'Nuff said.
  • Animal Crossing Clock (Nintendo, 1 player, 200 Nintendo DSi Points): You can buy this if you think the DSi's included clock doesn't get the job done, or if you just need to fit more Animal Crossing into your life that badly.
  • Penguins & Friends – Hey! That's My Fish! (Gammick Entertainment, 1-4 players, Rated E for Everyone, 800 Wii Points): The goal of this game is to snatch as many fish as you can, while keeping them away from a roving pack of hungry penguins. It's just like your last vacation to Antarctica.
Virtual Console
  • Tower Toppler (Commodore 64, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): In a world populated by evil towers, one man stands alone, ready to detonate each one and bring it crashing down. We imagine this would make a good action movie starring Bruce Willis or Jason Statham. As for how good of a game it makes, you'll just have to wait for VC in Brief.
