It’s Monday, and that means the Wii Shop Channel is going to be updated with two new games today. On tap for today’s Nintendo Wii Shop Channel update are Operation Wolf and Columns III.
Full details for both games, including their Wii Points costs, are below.
Operation Wolf: (originally on NES, 500 Wii Points): In this single-player game, A group of desperate terrorists is keeping hostages in their jungle fortress. As a member of the elite tactical squad Operation Wolf, you must invade their hideout, destroy their operations, and get the hostages out alive. Maneuver through a series of missions and fight off soldiers, patrol boats, helicopters and more. The further you progress, the more enemies you’ll have to defeat and the harder they’ll try to stop you in your tracks (going so far as tossing knives and grenades at you or wearing armor). Each area along your path ends with a boss battle where you’ll have to find and exploit each boss’ particular weakness. To top it all off, your weapon options are also limited, so you’ll need to conserve ammunition and grenades.
Columns III (originally on Sega Genesis, 800 Wii Points): This single-player or multiplayer experience expands upon the game play of the original two Columns titles giving players some extra attacks to spring on opponents. As in the original Columns, jewels fall into a bin, and you have to twist and manipulate them to form matches of three or more in a vertical, horizontal or diagonal line to keep the jewels from stacking up and reaching the top. In Columns III, special magical jewels do things like raise your opponent’s crush bar or lower your own, adding an extra element of strategy to the game.
