This Week’s Nintendo Downloads (10/18/10)

Still playing Sonic 4? Yeah, me too. But even though I have been completely enthralled in the blue blur’s latest outing, I still manage to make time for other games. Hopefully you do too, because this week Nintendo is coming at you with a number of downloads, one of which includes the Virtual Console!

Virtual Console

  • Final Fantasy Mystic Quest — 1 Player, Published by Square Enix, RPG, 800 Wii Points, Rated E

Though this entry in the Final Fantasy series isn’t one of the top titles in the franchise, it is still a solid RPG worth playing by fans of both the genre and Final Fantasy.


  • Happy Holidays Halloween — 1 Player, Published by 505 Games, Greeting Card Game, 500 Wii Points, Rated E

With Halloween on the horizon, many gamers may be the festive types to send out Halloween cards to all their pals. It looks like there’s an easier way for you to do that now, because Happy Holidays Halloween allows you to decorate cards, enter some text, and send them to all of your Wii-owning buddies.

  • ThruSpace — 1 Player, Published by Nintendo, Puzzle, 800 Wii Points, Rated E

Like Tetris? Then this game might appeal to you. Don’t like Tetris? Heck, this game may still appeal to you! ThruSpace is a puzzle game where you must rotate objects called keydrons and place them through gaps in walls. Think of it as Tetris with a twist.


  • Academy: Tic-Tac-Toe — 1 Player, Published by Gamelion, Puzzle, 200 DSi Points, Rated E

The classic game you played as a kid is now available for the DSi. Good to know Gamelion’s keeping busy. Hopefully we get the second installment of Furry Legends soon.

  • Armada — 1 Player, Published by Zoo Games, Strategy, 500 DSi Points, Rated E

This strategy download sees you taking aerial fighters to refeuling docks and protecting military aircraft.

  • Music on: Playing Piano — 1 Player, Published by Abylight, Music, 200 DSi Points, Rated E

If you want to take a load off with a music game and listen to some old-school beats, then you may want to check this one out.

  • Snapdots — 1 Player, Published by Nintendo, Puzzle, 500 DSi Points, Rated E

Use a UFO to shoot blocks and place them in the right spot.

    People always talk trash about mystic quest. I liked it. Just don’t consider it a Final Fantasy game and it is fine. The music was especially good IMHO.
