Wii Shop Channel Monday – Boingz, Sudoku Challenge, and Boogerman


A bunch of single-player fun for your Wii today with Boingz and Sudoku Challenge for WiiWare, and Boogerman coming out for Virtual Console.

Head past the break for full descriptions.


Boingz (RealArcade, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 1,000 Wii Points): Stretch, flex and flick your way to freedom. A truly mind-bending experience, Boingz introduces you to cute, colorful, stretchable friends lost in an alien world, searching for the magical gates that will take them home. Boingz springs to life with 30 levels of puzzle-platforming fun. The Boingz are bendy little critters that can be pulled, stretched and flicked from place to place like rubber bands. It’s a team effort, as all the Boingz will have to work together to unwind the game’s puzzles. What’s more, many of the Boingz have fallen into a deep slumber, and you’ll have to lead the stronger Boingz to find and wake up their sleepy friends. Explore surreal landscapes, sail through the air like a trapeze artist, walk along the seafloor, and collect the Twinklies to power up your elastic-powered flights.

Sudoku Challenge! (Digital Leisure Inc., 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): Now’s your chance to play the brain-busting puzzle game taking the world by storm. With over 100 million Sudoku puzzles, you’ll never see the same puzzle twice in Sudoku Challenge! You can select the classic nine-by-nine Sudoku game boards as well as Grand Sudoku, which challenges you to complete five intersecting Sudoku boards simultaneously. Just a beginner? Don’t worry-with three difficulty options, even a novice player can complete a Sudoku with ease. But if you’re a seasoned pro, challenge yourself in Expert mode and test your true skills. It’s time to get your thinking cap on and see how many Sudoku puzzles you can conquer.

Virtual Console

Boogerman: A Pick and Flick Adventure (Sega Genesis, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone-Comic Mischief, 800 Wii Points): In this top pick from the Sega Genesis, play as Boogerman, the heroic alter ego of Snotty Ragsdale. While investigating Professor Stinkbaum’s lab, Boogerman stumbles upon a strange machine that opens a portal to another dimension. Boogerman has a nose for adventure, but has he met his match in this sticky situation? Journey through dangerous worlds while battling wicked enemies like Fly Boy and Deodor Ant. Deal them a blow with Boogerman’s super abilities: pick and flick with deadly precision, belch, and use his deadly signature stomp.


  1. LOL Boogerman… nice.

  2. Boogerman

    How do they decide if the Genesis or the SNES version is put on VC? For example, Super has better sound but Genesis has its own midi charm to it. They should just have both as a 2-for-1 deal, unless they try to milk it and sell the same game twice.

  3. Why not?

    Capcom is doing it with four versions of Street Fighter 2 on the VC. >.>

  4. I agree with Billman64. I refuse to buy the Genesis version of Boogerman over the vastly superior SNES version … *snicker* … yeah, couldn’t say that with a straight face. What the heck is Boogerman?

    But seriously, I really don’t get how they choose the SNES of Genesis version. I wonder if the publisher picks it?

  5. @ David:
    Eh. I don’t know how to answer your question, but it reminded me of something. GoldenEye can’t be released on VC ’cause of some legal $hit. But everyone knew that…
