Pelvic Floor Exercise Game Fills Gap in the Market

The Wii has a huge audience, from little children to pregnant women, and so it's only fair that each gamer gets a game individually tailored to them.

Showdown at the Wii Shop Channel Corral

Fans of the Wild West may look enviously upon the titles released on HD consoles in the past year, notably Red Dead Redemption and Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, and wish for their own rootin' tootin' adventure to match.

Tales of Elastic Boy: Mission 1 (600pts, Lexis Numerique) – A platformer from the creators of the PooYoos games, this was released in Europe last week, so our review will be available very soon.


Music On: Learning Piano (200pts, Abylight) – The third in the Music On series following Electronic Keyboard and Retro Keyboard, this new instalment takes a different approaching, attempting to teach the fundamentals of reading sheet music through fifteen classical pieces. We'll soon find out if this is worth a standing ovation or is simply A Musical Joke.
