Available now on Nintendo DSiWare for download:

  • WarioWare: Snapped! 500 Nintendo Points: Wario returns with more manic action made especially for the Nintendo DSi system. WarioWare: Snapped! uses the built-in Nintendo DSi Camera to make players the star of the show by placing them right into fast-paced mini-games. Take part in wacky challenges simply by moving your face and body as you travel along four wild roller coasters, hosted by Wario and his pals. Beat the mini-games using motions ranging from large to small, or play with a friend for even more fun.
  • Pyoro 200 Nintendo Points: Take control of a cute bird called Pyoro as he tries to catch the fruit that falls from the top of the screen with his tongue! If the falling fruit hits the ground, a hole appears – leaving Pyoro with an ever-shrinking area in which to move. Worse still, if a piece of fruit lands on Pyoro’s head, it’s game over .

  • Paper Plane 200 Nintendo Points: A simple but addictive action game in which players have to guide their paper aircraft through mazes that get increasingly harder to navigate.
  • Art Style: CODE 500 Nintendo Points: Holding the Nintendo DSi sideways, like an open book, the goal is to switch around and rearrange digits, ultimately adding them together to make 10. Once selected, the digits adding up to 10 will all disappear. Different modes offer variations on this simple yet addictive rule to ensure hours of number-crunching fun! Nintendo DSiWare is available in four price categories: free, 200 points, 500 points, and 800 or more points.
  • Art Style: AQUITE 500 Nintendo Points: This fun and challenging mini-game is perfect to play on the go. Your aim is to help a little diver reach the bottom of the ocean, but getting there is more challenging than you may think
