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

This article is over 15 years old and may contain outdated information

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.
