Mario Calculator
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: N/A
Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points
Description: Mario and Luigi take a break from their normal adventures to dedicate their heroic talents to working with numbers. Mario Calculator features the full functionality of a traditional calculator, including a Memory key and the ability to display up to 13 digits, and adds a layer of atmosphere reminiscent of the original Super Mario Bros. Use the Unit Converter to turn one unit of measure into another (such as length, weight, volume, age and others), or track the history of calculations you’ve performed with ease. Listen to the Mario-related sounds and watch the coins fly as calculations are performed. Now, back to adding up those high scores…

Mario Clock
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points
Description: Turn back time and enjoy a bit of classic game play based on the original Super Mario Bros. with Mario Clock. Help Mario and Luigi collect more coins than ever (POW block anyone?) while they run through a variety of stages. Gather enough coins and you’ll be treated to another scene bound to bring back fond memories for many. Mario Clock includes both analog and digital clocks that use the system’s internal clock or allow you to offset the time however you like. Program up to three alarms (with snooze functionality for those that need it) and assign them a Mario-related sound or use one created in the Nintendo DSi Sound application. You’ll find yourself thinking “Just a few more coins…” in no time!


Space Harrier
Original platform: Virtual Console Arcade
Publisher: SEGA
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Animated Violence
Price: 800 Wii Points
Description: “Welcome to the Fantasy Zone. Get ready!” This is the greeting given to you as you start Space Harrier, but you don’t have much time to take this advice. Even as the words are being spoken, your Harrier warrior is already charging into battle. Toting a huge laser gun under his arm, the Space Harrier can either run along the checkerboard ground or freely fly through the sky. Either way, he’s always heading forward into the hostile 3-D world. As you progress, hordes of strange creatures and robots fly toward you. Fast reflexes are required to dodge their incoming fire. Environmental hazards can be a problem, too. Take care not to run into any trees or stone structures. If you need a bit of a morale boost, just defeat a boss, and the narrator will remind you that “you’re doing great!”

  1. Eduardo the Samurai Toaster . . . hmmm. Interesting.

  2. Nah, nothing for me this week. I might eventually get Ghost Busters, but besides that, nothing else.

    Let’s Catch looks like it could be fun for a few minutes, but I think it would get boring pretty quick (and what’s with the constant chasing the ball after you drop it?).

    Rainbow Island Towering Adventure actually looks better than it’s name suggests, but still, I’ll pass.

    Eduardo – thanks but no thanks.

    Space Harrier – Not for me.

  3. Cool I think I’ll definately be getting Rainbow Islands game. The nes version was one of the kinda rare cartridges. They sorta tried to sell it as a sequel to Bubble Bobble even though it wasn’t. The toaster one sounds cool too. I haven’t bought any arcade titles so maybe Space Harrier will be my first… Geez these downloadable games are costing me a small fortune… I’m up to 10 pages full of games on the SD card menu.

  4. Oh, I REALLY want Ghostbusters!!

  5. BOO! DSiWare is crap this week. I thought Asphalt would be releasing. How many more clocks and craap items do they have left? I wish they’d release a compilation of all of Fronk’s micro games. He deserves it.

  6. That samurai toaster game looks really fun. 🙂 The four-multiplayer cooperative mode makes it a winner. Besides the graphics are refreshing for that kind of platformer.

  7. eduardo the samurai toaster – maybe if they had a try-before-you-buy. I wonder how much they’re losing because they still don’t do trials.

  8. So now we have three clocks and two calculators available for download on DSiWare. Anyone else feeling like we’ve been tricked with the DSiWare Store?

  9. Space Harrier! Finally a new VCA release since the beginning of the service OVER A MONTH AGO.

  10. I put down my reserve order for The Conduit today at GameStop.
