NintendoWare Weekly: Monkey Island, Alex Kidd, Rollway Puzzle
There are a couple of interesting games hidden in an unusually crowded lineup of new Nintendo downloads. The Tales of Monkey Island series concludes, Alex Kidd appears in a weird crossover game, and DSiWare features a game that uses the camera for motion controls. And somehow, Digital Leisure released the same game twice! Find out how that happened (and what all the other new games are) after the break.
  • True Swing Golf Express (Nintendo, 1 player, 800 DSi Points): Did you miss Nintendo's golf game back in 2006? It's back in an abbreviated downloadable form!
  • Legends of Exidia (Gameloft, 1 player, 800 DSi Points): This RPG from Gameloft was once a Might & Magic game, but now takes place in "Exidia," where adventurers must defeat an army of demons and regain the "Orb of Spell."
  • Downtown Texas Hold 'Em (EA, 1-5 players, 500 DSi Points): You and four of your friends (with their own copies of the game) can play poker the way they do in ... downtown ... Texas?
  • Move Your Brain Rollway Puzzle (Assoria, 1 player, 500 DSi Points): This tilt-controlled game uses the DSi camera to detect movements. Simply by tilting the DSi, you navigate a ball through a series of mazes, hitting switches, avoiding enemies, and collecting items along the way.
  • 5 in 1 Solitaire (Digital Leisure, 1 player, 200 DSi Points): This solitaire game features Klondike, Spider, Freecell, Golf, and Gaps. If, like us, you have no idea how those solitaire variants differ, the game also has tutorials for each.
  • Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 5: Rise of the Pirate God (Telltale, 1 player, 1,000 Wii Points): The Monkey Island revival series concludes with this entry in which "Guybrush has met a shocking fate and Elaine must confront the ultimate evil with everything at stake." If you're thinking of playing this, you've probably played the other four, and thus know what that means.
  • Tumblebugs 2 (GameShastra, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): This Zuma-esque game is a sequel to a 2005 casual PC title. In case you were wondering where Tumblebugs 1 was.
  • 5 in 1 Solitaire (Digital Leisure, 1 player, 500 Wii Points): Digital Leisure released the same game on DSiWare and WiiWare today. That happened.
Virtual Console
  • Alex Kidd in Shinobi World (Sega Master System, 1 player, 500 Wii Points): This odd game was originally Shinobi Kid, before Sega decided to add its (at the time) flagship mascot character. This would be Alex's last starring role.
