Bomberman Blast (WiiWare)
Bomberman Blast is an all-new Bomberman for digital download for
WiiWare on Wii. Retaining the classic features Bomberman fans have
come to love such as online multiplayer battles and numerous arenas,
Bomberman Blast also incorporates new gameplay elements, including the
use of Miis(tm) and 8-person online multiplayer – the first time for
Bomberman on the Wii! Players can battle it out with each other
worldwide going solo or as part of a team. By using their Mii
character, gamers will have the opportunity to show off their Mii by
suiting him or her up into a Bomberman costume, then blowing away the
competition! Now who has the best Mii?

Alien Crush Returns (WiiWare)
Alien Crush Returns is a sci-fi pinball game based on the classic
TurboGrafx-16 Alien Crush series. In extraordinary pinball fashion,
the game offers gameplay spanning two screens, providing players a lot
of real estate to rack in points, multipliers, and bonuses. The game
is played across multiple boards, all of which feature an eerie alien
landscape and enemies that try to prevent pinball perfection. For
players who are confident in their alien crushing skills, they can go
online to play against friends to see who can get the highest score!
Alien Crush Returns is the only pinball game for WiiWare that lets
gamers compete head to head online. In addition, the game includes
online leader boards for score-obsessed pinball players.

version’s realistic controls, anglers use the Wii Remote(tm) and
Nunchuk(tm) to battle fish just like in real life. Pull the Wii
Remote left and right as the fish fights from the end of the line and
adjust the drag to avoid breaking the line. Once players have their
skills down, they can compete with friends with four-person
multiplayer modes, catch rare fish with exclusive boss battle controls
