Virtual Console games – Europe – Friday 17th August

Europe got two new VC games to download on their Wii today, August Friday 17th.

Cratemaze
Turbografx – 1990 by Hudsonsoft – action – 1 player – 600 points

Cratemaze is comical action game set in a parallel world. While on a trip through time, you and your friends are confronted by Kubai, henchman of the evil Zenzombie. He traps your friends at a separate pont in the space-time continuum.

Fight your way though 60 Rounds of maze to save your friends. Dinosaurs, nijas, robots and other enemies lurk within the maze, spanning from primitive times to future. Escape them by digging holes to drop them into. Fill in the holes to finish them off! Collect all the chests within the time limit to get the key and exit to the next Round.

Cratemaze takes gameplay to new heights, making for an unforgettable gaming experience!

Wave Race 64
N64 – 1997 by Nintendo – racing – 1-2 players – 1000 points

Originally a launch game for Nintendo 64. Wave Race 64 immediately blew the competition out of the water with its impressive 3D graphics and gameplay that was anything but shallow!

In Championship Mode, race around nine challenging courses, from the tranquillity of Sunny Beach to the stormy surf of Marine Fortress, each packed with obstacles to avoid and ramps to launch into crowd-pleasing stunts.

Play against a pal in Vs. Mode, choose Time Trail Mode to shave off seconds from your laps, or opt for Stunt Mode to practise your handstands, backflips and barrel rolls! And if you’re really good, you might even catch a ride on a dolphin!
