It may be heating up in Australia, but that hasn't stopped Nintendo having a laugh because indeed hell hath frozen over. That's what I had written originally, but now I've had to change it. So why had hell frozen over? Well we were set to get two Virtual Console games this week, they even sent a press release and everything. But alas, as well as missing out on the World Cup, we miss out on Magical Drop II. Never the less, let's have a look at what we did get.
Sneezies (Chillingo, 500 points) - Not much is know about this one as of yet, but it's from the creators of Angry Birds on the iPhone. It can't be that bad, right? Drop sneezing powder onto the Sneezies and watch themselves burst out of their bubbles. Get the best chain reaction to win. There's even online leaderboards.
Max and the Magic Marker
Tetris Party Live (Tetris Online Inc., 800 points) - The smaller cousin of Tetris Party Deluxe, it may not have 12 modes like the retail one but it's still got your classic stacking action. There's online included in this one for the 800 points as well but it's missing download play.
Rocks N' Rockets (Tik Games LLC, 500pts) – A newly announced one so I have only to go what it says on the press release and that it sounds like Missile Command.
Karnov's Revent (NeoGeo, 900 Points) - A Classic Data East fighting game for the NeoGeo, apparently if you fight well enough in this one you can take on a bull. Yes, the animal.
If this update couldn't get any better, and well it could, rest assured as next week it's Cave Story time. No kidding, it's finally here.
