NintendoWare Weekly: Street Slam, Robox


NBA Jam now faces some competition from the Virtual Console for Wii arcade basketball dominance. Well, actually, we doubt anyone in the history of the platform has ever worried about competition from the Virtual Console. In any case, the Neo Geo's Street Slam is available today. It's unrealistic, arcade-style basketball.

Additionally, the WiiWare adventure Robox debuts today, as does a rare WiiWare/DSiWare dual release: Gene Labs, a puzzle action game about healing cells infected by a virus.

  • Robox (DreamBox Games, 1 player, 1,000 Wii Points): Work together to explore a strange new planet, both as a faulty robot and the indigenous creatures who have taken up residence in the robot's body.
  • Gene Labs (Frontline Studios, 1-2 players, 500 Wii Points): Inject anti-viral solution into virus cells under a microscope to protect healthy cells. Fun for the whole family!
Virtual Console
  • Street Slam (Neo Geo, 1-2 players, 900 Wii Points): 3-on-3 street basketball, with the gritty realism of the streets in full effect -- just kidding, it's way colorful.
  • Gene Labs (Frontline Studios, 1 player, 200 DSi Points): The same vaccine-dragging gameplay from the WiiWare version, in a convenient pocket size.
  • Paul's Shooting Adventure (Agetec, 1 player, 200 DSi Points): It's aliens vs. a ... flying superhero baby with Mega Man's weapon absorption powers.
  • Peg Solitaire (Circle Entertainment, 1-2 players, 500 DSi Points): That game where you move a marble around a cross-shaped board.
