Flicking Boingz, Flicking Boogers

Nintendo put a meager selection of games online this week and Boingz might be the most interesting out of the three. RealNetwork’s first WiiWare game has players stretch and flick balloon-like aliens to an end of level exit. Boingz sounds like a platformer, but it’s more like point and click game. Players grab the antenna of a Boingz and pull it back to flick it towards the goal. Boingz costs 1,000 Wii Points ($10).

Digital Leisure’s first WiiWare game online today and it’s a sudoku compilation. Sudoku Challenge puts 100 million sudoku puzzles into a single WiiWare download for 500 Wii Points ($5). Sudoku pros might want to give this a look for value, but Digital Leisure should give the licensed properties another look. A 500 Wii Point port of Mad Dog McCree with remote control shooting would be more exciting than another sudoku game.


The Genesis version of Boogerman: A Pick and Flick Adventure is the only Virtual Console release this week. In this pun filled platformer players attack with boogers, burps, and farts. I remember Boogerman being entertaining for its off-beat humor similar to Earthworm Jim. Although, Earthworm Jim is probably a better all around game. If you’re in the mood for toilet humor Boogerman is 800 Wii Points ($8).
