This week it’s a couple of titles from WiiWare (thank you, Santa, for the Wii Points card!). That is, when my family’s not playing Jillian Michaels’ Fitness Ultimatum… Thanks a LOT, fat man!

ProtötheaWii Ware Protothea Ubisoft Nintendo

Protöthea is a top-down scrolling shooter game with free movement that puts players in complete control of a last-generation spaceship, with the mission to destroy the asteroid called “Maqno 01,” and finish with the plans of “The Core.” Ubisoft’s Protöthea introduces new concepts to a beloved, classic game style while mixing genres and utilizing the full capabilities of the Nintendo Wii console from graphics to controls. Players of all ages and experience will enjoy jumping on the command of their ship, blasting through 4 different worlds in 10 challenging missions. Use your weapon arsenal and the special bonus items to help you accomplish your mission, and don’t forget to slow down time and take an edge over the enemy.

GyrostarrGyrostarr Nintendo Wii Ware

Gyrostarr challenges you and up to three additional players to pilot your ships through a series of twisting, turning technoplasma tracks while battling a variety of deadly alien foes at ever-increasing speeds. While fighting and maneuvering, you must collect enough energy to activate the ancient warpgate at the end of each track. Succeed, and you can journey to the next, even deadlier track. Fail, and the gate will slam shut, destroying your ship. Enhance your ship with weapon pickups, coordinate attacks with your friends to fire powerful combined blasts and use your grapple to snag energy and pickups in the midst of combat. Control your ship with the Wii Remote controller, Nunchuk controller or Classic Controller, or use the “paired” control system that allows two players to use a connected Wii Remote and Nunchuk or Classic Controller at the same time. Offering 50 levels of intense action, powerful pickups, high-speed bonus levels and mayhem for up to four players, Gyrostarr is a killer arcade challenge.
