This week’s Nintendo Releases:




Swords & Soldiers - 1000 points

Swords & Soldiers is a side-scrolling real time strategy game that lets you control all the action on the battlefield easily by using only the Wii Remote. Just point at the screen and press the A Button to build new units, cast devastating spells and tear your enemy’s structures to pieces! You can tackle the game’s various modes and missions on your own, or challenge a friend in action-packed split-screen battles.

The aim of the game is simple: Take control of one of three different factions, and advance from one end of the battlefield to the other in order to overcome your enemies. There are three distinct game modes to play in Swords & Soldiers, each one bringing its own unique challenges: Campaign, Skirmish and Challenge.

Whichever game mode you’re playing, there are two main elements you’ll need to get to grips with in order to claim victory. Units and spells govern all the offensive actions available to a faction. You’ll also have to decide where your loyalties lie and select one of these three warring factions to take control of. Each one comes complete with its own particular units and powerful spells, as well as their own good reasons for marching out to war!




Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure is a side-scrolling action game in which you play adventurer Pitfall Harry Jr. in search of his father, Pitfall Harry.

Pitfall Harry has been taken captive by the dreaded warrior spirit Zakelua: Lord of Evil. Armed with only a trusty sling and his father’s journal, young Harry Jr. must now venture into the unknown to rescue him … before it’s too late! Bungee jump and boomerang your way to safety as you battle through treacherous Mayan jungles, waterfalls and deserted mines. With 13 levels of fast, gripping action, you will need to be attentive and quick - or prepare to die.

Master of Illusion Express titles are mind-boggling magic tricks pulled from the popular Nintendo DS game.

Learn the illusions, practice up, and then amaze your friends. Master of Illusion Express: Shuffle Games will boggle your audience members’ minds as they try to figure out how you know exactly what they’re thinking. Also included is the bonus Vanishing Card trick, which the Nintendo DSi system performs for your enjoyment.
