Club Nintendo Game Rewards for April
This month's game rewards on Club Nintendo include two Wiiware games from 2009 and one DSiware game from 2010.
First up is Excite Bike: World Rally for WiiWare which is a remake of the classic 1986 NES game. The game offers classic single player style races against the clock while also adding in online multiplayer for up to 4 players in a race. While not a new feature, the ability to actually save custom created tracks is a big improvement over the original game. The only downside is no split screen multiplayer in the game.
The next game is also a WiiWare game called You, Me, and the Cubes. A 3D-style puzzle game where the player controls "Fallos" or little characters to help solve puzzles with the twist of the puzzles being physics based. For every Fallos added to the puzzle, the weight changes and causes the puzzle to start leaning unless another Fallos is added elsewhere to help regain the balance.
The final game is a DSiware offering called Metal Torrent. A classic 2D shoote-em-up type game with the focus more on high scores and leaderboards than traditional shooting to reach an end boss. The game offers an Easy and "Insane" mode for difficulty levels.
All three games will be available until April 30 on Club Nintendo with both Wiiware games costing 200 coins each and Metal Torrent 150 coins.
Coins come from buying Nintendo products and registering those products on Nintendo Club's website. Some extra bang for your buck so it's a pretty good deal.
it sucks. is baad, monotonous, short, easy, a waste of money, DO NOTY LISTEN TO THE REVIEWS
i second that, only 8 stages with boss every 2 of them.... prett=y much teh same boss, you get hit and dont die (only on insane). this game could be a button masher, but of course, not even that, is so bad the game itself does the mashing for yo, the game is so easy you might beat it in 15 minutes. and the leaderboards suck. is like "this up there are the asians, and this is you".
i downloaded it based on the reviews... what a bad decision.
It's good fun. I bought it before club nintendo had it, it's a blast!
slowly but surely saving up for the 1st game n watch collection..
Just heard about this a few minutes ago, Too bad i'm not club nintendo.
I'll pass this time. I wouldn't mind trying Metal Torrent out but I don't need it that badly.
A word of warning: Metal Torrent is pretty monotonous.
Someone let me know how the DSiware game is? I might get it for my 3DS eventually... If that's possible.
Club Nintendo coins that you get from registering games.
No, coins you collect by registering your Nintendo products on clubnintendo.
wait coins? like the coins you collect in 3ds from walkin n such? o_O
Toooooooooootally getting Excitebike.
metal torrent looks pretty fun. i may pick that one up.
Can you do this in europe
I will have to look into these games, I have a lot of points right now that I should use.
Just picked up Excitebike as a reward. It's a lot of fun, but having no splitscreen multiplayer (or same screen, for that matter) is really disappointing.
Metal Torrent looks fun.
