Nintendo has updated the Wii Shop with the long-awaited flappy-arm version of 2D Boy's excellent World of Goo.

Although it's a relatively whopping 1500 Wii Points (GBP 10.50 / EUR 15 approx), that's not that bad when you consider the PC version's USD 20 price tag, which is about 400 quid at today's exchange rate.

We'll have a Wii review of World of Goo, in which you build towers and other structures out of balls of goo, soonish. In the meantime, you can check out our World of Goo PC review.

Elsewhere there's the third game in the Art Style series, Orbient. Like its Art Style comrade Rotohex, it's a remake of a Bit Generations game, in this case Orbital. Players try to grow a star by absorbing other stars, apparently.

We'll be taking a look at all three Art Style games - the other one we haven't mentioned is called Cubello - in the near future as well. Orbient costs 600 Wii Points (GBP 4.20 / EUR 6 approx).

Otherwise, there's also Niki - Rock 'n' Ball at 500 Wii Points (GBP 3.50 / EUR 5 approx) to consider. It's from the makers of Plattchen: Twist 'n' Paint, apparently, and there's some footage on YouTube to help make your mind up.

Finally, for those of you with more Wii Points than sense, there's Sudoku Challenge! for 500 Wii Points as well.
