NintendoWare Weekly: Gargoyle's Quest, The Ignition Factor


Once again, to our delight, Virtual Console games grace two separate Nintendo platforms today, and both are "fire" themed to a degree. On the 3DS eShop, Capcom's excellent RPG-ish Ghosts 'n Goblins spinoff, Gargoyle's Quest, is now available. The somewhat more obscure SNES firefighting game, The Ignition Factor, is on Wii.

DSiWare sees a very cute Bubble Bobble-esque game, and ... Calculator. Which is a calculator.


  • Demo: Kyotokei (Microforum, 1 player, 0 Wii Points): A side-scrolling shooter in the vein of Ikaruga.
Virtual Console
  • The Ignition Factor (SNES, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): Put out fires and rescue people in this top-down action game.
3DS eShop
  • Gargoyle's Quest (Game Boy) (Capcom, 1 player, $3.99): A combination of platforming and role-playing, starring Firebrand, the Red Devil from Ghosts 'n Goblins.
  • Let's Create! Pottery (Infinite Dreams Inc., 1 player, $4.99/500DSi Points): Create and decorate virtual pottery, then sell it.
  • Magical Whip: Wizards of the Phantasmal Forest (Agetec, 1 player, $1.99/DSi Points): A single-screen action game in which you capture monsters by whipping them.
  • Calculator (Cinemax, 1 player, $1.99/200DSi Points): It ... does look like a really nice calculator.
