A listing for a Majesco
-published Wii version of Tumiki Fighters
has shown up on Gamefly
, and we really, really hope it turns out to be real. Tumiki Fighters
is a freeware shmup
by Kenta Cho
that involves collecting pieces that fall off of destroyed enemy ships to power up your own ship.
We like Kenta Cho's games. They're gorgeously presented abstract shooters that either (like Tumiki Fighters
) invent new gameplay mechanics or, like rRootage,
artfully (and openly) rip off mechanics from other shmups. We aren't sure we'd want to pay full price for them, since they're free
right now, but we would consider paying budget price for sufficiently expanded versions.
