Niki – Rock ‘n’ Ball Mixes Tilt Control With Classic Platforming


This week’s WiiWare game comes from the makers of Plattchen – Twist ‘n’ Paint, but developer Bplus didn’t dish out another puzzle game. Niki – Rock ‘n’ Bowl is similar to a 2D platformer with the elementary goal of defeating all the monsters in a level. The twist is you can do it with tilt control. Tilt the remote to make Niki roll and press A to make the ball jump. If you’re not a fan of tilt control Niki – Rock ‘n’ Bowl has NES style controls too, but it looks like the game was designed primarily with tilt control in mind.


Niki – Rock ‘n’ Bowl and Wonder Boy in Monster Land, a Sega Master System game and this week’s only Virtual Console entry, cost 500 Wii Points ($5) a piece.
