871st played so far Genre: Puzzle Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Mindware Corp Publisher: Nintendo With all the digital storefronts disappearing – in particular Nintendo’s offerings disappear early – it feels right to get these indie titles done earlier so I don’t have to worry about disappearing or breaking consoles.
