Four WiiWare titles out today

Cubello, Strong Bad, Snooker, Cooking.

Nintendo has whacked four new games onto the WiiWare store today.

Strong Bad Episode 3: Baddest of the Bands is our pick of the bunch, and will cost 1000 Wii Points (approx GBP 7.00 / EUR 10.00) to download.

This is the next in the series of comedy cartoon capers, which were kicked off admirably in August by Episode 1: Homestar Ruiner. The idea in Baddest of the Bands is to put together a rock concert, but sign too few bands and you'll fail, like Laura out of X-Factor.

Yummy Yummy Cooking Cooking Jam also costs 1000 Wii Points (approx GBP 7.00 / EUR 10.00), but revolves around cooking and serving dishes as fast as possible before customers - insects and humans - get angry.

Cubello, the first and completely original Art Style game, is also out today for 600 Wii Points (approx GBP 4.20 / EUR 6). We talked about this series earlier in the month, and the idea in Cubello is to whittle down the number of blocks in a spinning cluster by firing like-coloured blocks at it. Simple, and potentially quite good.

Last but not least is CueSports - Snooker vs. Billiards for 800 Wii Points (GBP 6 / EUR 8). Fairly self-explanatory, but with Wi-Fi multiplayer thrown into the mix.
