This Week’s Nintendo Downloads (7/26/10)

The Virtual Console is back on the map this week, as Nintendo put a single SNES game up for download.  It’s nice to see a new Virtual Console game, but if only there were more options this week.  *Sigh*

Virtual Console

  • Aero the Acro-Bat (SNES): 1 Player, Published by Sunsoft, Platformer, 800 Wii Points, Rated E

It’s a good thing the only downloadable Virtual Console game was a good one back in its hey-day.  Created during a time when mascots had to be edgy and cool (think Sonic the Hedgehog), Aero the Acro-Bat stars an edgy and cool mascot who must try and save his beloved circus from impending doom.


  • Dive: The Medes Island Secret: 1 Player, Published by Cosmonaut Games, Action-adventure, 1,000 Wii Points, Rated E
  • Heavy Fire: Special Operations: 1-2 Players, Published by Teyon, Rail Shooter, 500 Wii Points, Rated T

This week’s WiiWare titles include a side-scrolling action-adventure game and an arcade rail shooter that supports the Wii Zapper.  More games need to support that peripheral.  Mine’s been gathering dust for the longest time now!


  • Absolute BrickBuster: 1 Player, Published by Tasuke, Arcade, 200 DSi Points, Rated E
  • Crystal Monsters: 1 Player, Published by Gameloft, RPG, 500 DSi Points, Rated E
  • Face Pilot: 1 Player, Published by Nintendo, Simulation, 500 DSi Points, Rated E
  • Petz Hamsterz Family: 1 Player, Published by Ubisoft, Simulation, 800 DSi Points, Rated E
  • Puffins: Let’s Race: 1-4 Players, Published by Other Ocean, Racing, 500 DSi Points, Rated E

DSi’s throwing a handful of typical titles out this week.  You’ve got arcade-style, simulation, and racing.  That image of those hamsters for Petz Hamsterz Family is so creepy.  Just sayin’.
