NintendoWare Weekly: Bit Boy!! brings the bits

This week's biggest release is undoubtedly Bplus' Bit Boy!!, an odd title that pays homage to the various bits that make up gaming's past. Bit Boy!! runs the gamut from gaming's humble beginnings during the 4-bit era, all the way up to the last generation's 128-bit capabilities. The goal is to...

Bplus explains how to play Bit Boy

We're thrilled about the generation-traveling concept of Bplus's Bit Boy -- much more than we have been about any previous Bplus game, to be honest -- but we don't really know that much about it. Nintendo Life spoke to Bernd Geiblinger, art director at Bplus, and got a rundown of the maze game. "As...

Bplus brings faux-retro to WiiWare in Bit Boy

Bplus, developer of Plattchen - Twist 'n Paint, Niki -Rock 'n Ball, and the upcoming Vektor Tank, announced a new game that doesn't look so new. In fact, it looks delightfully old! Bit Boy!! follows a character called "Kubi" on an adventure that spans console generations, starting at 2600-style...

VC Friday: Gooey goodness

Save the best 'til last, as ... somebody ... probably once said, and that's exactly what Nintendo has done for the PAL WiiWare service. On the last "WiiWare Friday" of 2008, World of Goo leads a pack of four games. It is quite possibly the most wizard WiiWare release of 2008, and if you wish to...

Niki - Rock 'n' Ball possibly on PAL WiiWare this week

All right, we watched this trailer, and we're still pretty cloudy on the details. Apparently Plättchen had a story -- and it ties into the story of Bplus's next game, Niki - Rock 'n' Ball. Developer Bplus is, rather surprisingly, expecting to launch Niki this week, according to the Nintendo...

Plattchen developer announces another weirdly-named WiiWare game

Bplus was the very first company to announce a WiiWare game, Plättchen -- Twist 'n' Paint. It came out over a year later ... and didn't turn out to be worth waiting, or paying 1,000 Wii Points for (much less the 1,500 Bplus charged in Europe). Bplus apparently wasn't discouraged by the poor...
