Europe – GAME & WATCH NOW ON DSiWARE, HANABI SPECIAL OGRE BATTLE 64, DINER DASH AND MANY MORE GAMES TO DOWNLOAD THIS WEEK

By  • 

26th March 2010: We want to invite you to take a trip down memory lane as the Game & Watch™ series returns. These little LCD game gems were released thirty years ago and marked Nintendo’s first foray into portable games. They were the first ancestors of your Nintendo DSi and will now be available once more, exclusively on DSiWare. The first three titles are Chef, Judge and Mario’s Cement Factory.

Also on DSiWare this week: You’ll need a steady hand as the pressure is on to rescue Leon’s babies from the belly of Ms. Tum Tum in SUPER YUM YUM Puzzle Adventures. And you better watch your back as gangsters are prowling the neighbourhood in Gangstar 2: Kings of L.A.

Get ready for some frantic fun this week as Diner Dash® comes to WiiWare. Help Flo complete all her tasks in the allotted time and pair up with players online to compete for the best diner in town. Or go for the almost spiritual experience of Art of Balance, a physics-based puzzler with great production values. Critically acclaimed when released in North America, it hits Europe this week!

Review: Faceez

Review: Faceez

By  • 

Faceez is a DSiware game created by Neko entertainment which uses every aspect of the Nintendo DSi. Faceez is a simple game, you take pictures of yourself, animate it and dress them up, to share them with friends.

Before you can create your very own Faceez, you will need to take a picture. You will need to line your face up with the on screen guide; this will give you the best result with your Faceez. Once this is done, feel free to change your faceez around; add a noise, a long beard, or a top hat. You can also add animation to your faceez; make it act surprised, walk, run, do a back flip, and so much more. The last step it to add a background for your Faceez to live in. You can choose one of the generic backgrounds or use your DSi camera to take one for yourself. After you are satisfied, or just completely freaked out by your creation, you can share your faceez with a friend by sending it to Facebook our sharing between DSi’s.
