Nintendo continues its Monday-morning saga of WiiWare and VIrtual Console games, uploading Protothea and Toki Tori to WiiWare and Ninja Combat to the VIrtual Console.
Protothea (1,000 Wii Points) is a top-down scrolling shooter game from Ubisoft in which players control a last-generation spaceship. The mission is to destroy the asteroid called Maqno 01 and finish with the plans of The Core. Protothea of course uses the full motion-sensitive options of the Wii Remote as players blast through four different worlds in 10 missions.
Toki Tori (1,000 Wii Points), meanwhile, is a puzzle/platform game in which players use a variety of items such as the Telewarp, InstantRock and Slug Sucker to solve the game’s 70-plus levels and gather eggs. Toki Tori uses the Wii Remote for its controls, while a second player can draw hints while you’re playing. The game also uses the Wii Message Board.
Today’s Wii Virtual Console game, Ninja Combat (900 Wii Points) from the NeoGeo, was originally released in 1990 as a side-scrolling action game. In Ninja Combat, players take control of the near-future ninjas Joe (one player) and Hayabusa (two players) and do battle against a group of evil ninjas called the Kage Ichizoku. In addition to normal ninja attacks and screen-clearing special moves, players can also find weapons and items to aid in their adventures. As players progress in the game, allies such as Musashi, Kagerow and Gembu will emerge, giving players the chance to choose a new character in each stage. Ninja Combat also supports simultaneous play with two players.
