WiiWare and Virtual Console releases for this week

Rounding up the WiiWare and Virtual Console releases for the week of 11/3.

This week brings us a bizarre sci-fi pinball game, a home-remodeling simulator, and an original space-themed shoot-em-up.

  • Alien Crush Returns (Hudson Entertainment, 800 Wii points): Alien Crush Returns is an updated version of the classic Turbografx 16 game. It's a pinball simulator unlike anything you've played because it looks like you're playing inside someones digestive system. Your Nintendo Wi-Fi connection extends the fun, bringing your gameplay online with up to four friends.
  • Home Sweet Home (Big Blue Bubble Inc., 1,000 Wii points): Calling all aspiring interior decorators: Home Sweet Home lets you design your dream room with its easy to use interface and controls.
    Virtual Console
  • Space Harrier (1986, Sega Master System, 500 Wii points): Originating in the arcades of the 1980s, Space Harrier lets you play through 18 levels of intense space shoot-em-up combat. Defeat the bosses at the end of each level and restore peace to your homeland.
