The LoadDown - 04/25/2011

Another week rolls around, and the hits (or wannabes) keep coming...

WiiWare -- Again, one new game and a demo.  Word Search Deluxe is what you'd expect, a word-search game using the Wii remote's pointer capabilities.  There's also a free demo version of the early-learning education title, Learning with the PooYoos: Episode 3.

Wii Virtual Console -- Nothing here this week.

DSiWare -- Three new titles up for download.  Airport Mania: First Flight is a casual time-management game involving air traffic control and plane management responsibilities.  Inchworm Animation is a fairly full-featured paint and animation tool for the DSi, and supports the DSi camera for doing time-lapse and stop-motion work as well; its primary limitation seems to be a loop/layer-based structure, not well suited for filmmaking per se.  Ubongo is a puzzle/gem collecting game adapted from an existing board game.

XBox Live Arcade -- Two new games.  The Fancy Pants Adventures comes to XBLA as well (see PS3 section), and Section 8: Prejudice is a download-only sequel to the 2009 first-person shooter Section 8.

PS3 on PSN --Three new titles.  Telltale Games' excellent Puzzle Agent is now available on the PS3, along with Sega's classic Sonic the Hedgehog 2, emulating the Genesis original with trophies added.  There's also The Fancy Pants Adventures, an expanded console port of the popular side-scrolling platformer Flash game.

PSOne Classics -- Just as I was about to give up hope, Capcom's Resident Evil-style survival adventure Dino Crisis 2 shows up.
