It’s Monday today, and that means 2011 has its first weekly batch of WiiWare games courtesy of our friends at Nintendo. Today’s WiiWare menu includes three titles, two of which cost 500 Wii Points and one of which will set you back 1,000 Wii Points. Fortunately, the 1,000-pointer also has a free demo available so you can try it before you buy it.
Here are the new WiiWare games, descriptions and prices:
Ghost Mania: For 500 Wii Points, Ghost Mania lets one to two players work through its original puzzles that offer a new twist on the falling-block genre. Build and expand colored stacks of ghosts and blocks in any direction and any number. The game features multiple single- and two-player modes, including a relaxed and thoughtful puzzle mode, an arcade mode and a variety of two-player modes such as Battle and Enduro. The game centers on the misadventures of Becky and Tim, a pair of ghost guardians who’ve just lost their jobs. Having fallen asleep on active duty, they accidentally let all the ghosts escape from the Spirit World, meaning it’s up to the player to help Becky and Tim get their jobs back so they can return to the Spirit World and catch the runaway ghosts.
Robox: Available in two flavors — a free demo or a 1,000 full version — Robox lets players jump, explore and shoot as they discover a planet filled with strange and menacing creatures. Go through a beautiful and lethal forest, find your way out of a labyrinth cave, jump into jelly bubbles and go for a ride on a giant slug. Fight epic battles against giant final bosses. Regain the abilities you’ve lost with the help of tiny creatures. Move through walls, break the floor or get new gadgets such as drills and gigantic cannons as you discover one of the most challenging Wii games of the last few years.
Sneezies: For 500 Wii Points, players can grab a cup of coffee, sit back in their favorite plush chair and enjoy relaxed music-based gameplay in which they drop a burst of sneezing powder into the field of floating Sneezies and watch as they sneeze themselves out of their bubbles in a chain reaction. Try to rescue as many Sneezies as you can through 45 relaxing levels in the Classic Mode or the 15 Challenge Mode levels. High scores can be posted online from within the game to see how you stack up against other Sneezies players around the world.
