Art Style WiiWare games for November

Stylish puzzlers under a fiver each.

Nintendo plans to release the quirky Art Style WiiWare games in Europe from 21st November.

These cost 600 Wii Points apiece (approximately GBP 4.20 / EUR 6), and are stylish remakes of the Bit Generations games for GBA.

All apart from Cubello, actually, which is an original creation. The idea is to eliminate cubes from spinning clusters by firing similarly-coloured blocks at them. There's a video and some pictures of Cubello in action on the official Nintendo website.

Then there's Rotohex - a remake of Dialhex, reviewed on the other side of the blue words - where falling panels have to be rotated to make a hexagon. Head-to-head multiplayer is included, and completing hexagons here rewards players with an unhelpful block to use on opponents.

Or there's space-themed gravity game Orbient. Based on Bit Generations game Orbital, the idea is to guide a star through a galaxy using the gravitational pull of nearby planets. And advancing to other galaxies means eating the sun, which means eating blue stars to grow along the way.

All three games are out in the US, incidentally, and appear to be notching up favourable reviews. Look out for our thoughts on the Art Style series soon.
