European WiiWare Update: Hot Wrist Action Edition

Limber up that Wiimote wrist as today's WiiWare release might give you some carpal tunnel.

Game 1 - Actionloop Twist
Nintendo - 1000 Points

Its the Wii version of the 2006 DS game, which alone makes me nervous. Lets try not to flood this service with DS ports please. Anyway, its the home version of the PuzzLoop arcade game which was released in 1998 and places its draw mainly on the large variety of ways it will try and make your life harder in the Quest mode. Some examples include magnets to alter the path of your balls, black holes to suck in your balls (no jokes here) and multiple ball launchers to really get you panicing. Eurogamer gave the game a highly favourable 8/10 review but largely praised its touch screen controls. With the product description mentioning Wiimote twisting I'm unsure how well its been transferred over. I'd read a few reviews before you drop the £7.50.

Wow, I did all that without mentioning Zuma. Popcap's rip-off of the game.

(Note: Actionloop is called Magnetica in the US)

njsykora is pronounced like this.

Yeah it would be easier if it were spelt njsikora but it doesn't look as cool does it?
