NintendoWare Weekly: Golf, DotMan


It would be hard to overshadow this week's most prominent 3DS news, and Nintendo doesn't even come close to it with today's digital releases. If you're on 3DS, you'll have access to the Game Boy version of Golf -- and, if you check out Nintendo Video, Blue Man Group will teach you how to Dougie. On Wii you'll find a couple of color-matching puzzlers, including a demo for this year's intriguing Liight.

On DSiWare, Agetec brings us DotMan, a low-cost download that looks to us like a modern update of the old Atari game, Dodge'Em. Maybe you were looking for something like that.


  • Paint Splash (KnapNok Games, 1-4 players, 500 Wii Points): Paint on the TV screen! Without having to buy another TV immediately afterward.
  • Demo: Liight (Studio Walljump, 1 player, 500 Wii Points): Arrange colored lights to hit matching targets. If you can't imagine how that works in-game, good news: there's a demo!
