This week gives Space Invaders its overdue revenge and a classic side-scrolling shooter its second date with the Virtual Console.
  • Space Invaders Get Even (Taito, 500 Wii points): My, how the tables have turned. In this classic remake, you'll take control of the UFOs, blasting relentlessly at the poor defenseless humans. Make use of five different attack types and then hop online to see where you stand in the rankings.
  • Pit Crew Panic! (Hudson Entertainment, 800 Wii points): In Pit Crew Panic! you're in charge of repairing vehicles on the race track. Use your Wii remote to hover over the damaged part and then assign a crew member to take care of it. Up to four players can take part in various game modes.
    Virtual Console
  • Metal Slug 2 (1998, NeoGeo, 900 Wii points): The sequel to the side-scrolling military action classic is now available on the Virtual Console. Following the winning formula from the original, Metal Slug 2 lets you blast your way through enemies with new weapons and effects.
