Nintendo made it really, really easy this week for us to notice the release of its original 3DS download game, Freakyforms
. Unfortunately, it did this by releasing nothing else
on eShop (save some Zelda
music on Nintendo Video), and very little on DSiWare (a tower defense game about monkeys popping balloons, and a generic strategy title).
Meanwhile, on WiiWare ... step aerobics. So yeah, Freakyforms
! It looks really cute!
Step Up! (GolemLabs & Zoozen, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): Step aerobics training, with "intense energy music, that will drive you [sic] body."
Freakyforms: Your Creations, Alive! (Nintendo, 1 player, $6.99): Build creatures that were never meant to walk upon this earth ... and then go explore a cute little world with them!
Castle Conqueror - Heroes (Circle Entertainment, 1 player, $4.99/500 DSi Points): Sci-fi themed strategy.
Bloons TD (Digital Goldfish, 1 player, $4.99/500 DSi Points): A tower defense game, about monkeys with dart guns popping balloons as they move through a maze.
