Nintendo Download: 18th August 2011 (North America)
Fighting in the streets
It’s that time of the week again: the Nintendo Download is upon us, bestowing a bounty of digital deliciousness, or leaving a sour taste in your mouth. You decide. Here’s what’s on offer and vying for your currency today.
3D Classics: Urban Champion (Nintendo, $ 4.99) — The NES ‘classic’ is reborn in a third dimension, with local multiplayer support for two players to boot. We’ll rough and tumble with the game and see if it’s got the right stuff in an upcoming review.
Zoonies — Escape from Makatu (Kiloo Games, 500pts/$ 4.99) — A rather enjoyable side-scrolling adventure, guide Leo the lion through a treacherous jungle and escape from the titular tribal leader. Read our Zoonies — Escape from Makatu review for the verdict.
Build-a-Lot (MumboJumbo, 800pts/$ 7.99) — The popular building sim comes back to DS after a retail release back in 2009.
Flight Control (Firemint, 500pts) — The classic game of guiding planes to safety makes a scheduled stop on WiiWare for just 500 Points. Hopefully it can live up to the series’ good name, so we’ll see how it fares in a future review.
Jason Derulo, It Girl — Jason Derulo! It’s a video featuring everyone’s favourite singer of his own name.
UYUYUI! — No, not the screams of exasperation at yet another DSiWare puzzle game, this is an animation about two children, a picnic and a huge gust of wind.
Duel — Regrettably this isn’t the cinematic directorial debut of one Steven Spielberg, but another video from those College Humor guys about fighting.
What’s heading your way today?
