It's Monday morning, and despite Fahey's mini-cation from Kotaku Tower, the Nintendo Wii truck just dropped its weekly goods on our doorstep. I caught a glimpse of puzzles and Mercs before staggering up stairs.
WiiWare title LIT, but Wayforward Technologies, offers a single-player horror puzzle game for 800 Wii Points.
Dark creatures have taken over Jake's high school, and it's up to you to guide him through each classroom in order to be reunited with his girlfriend Rachael. Existing light sources must be used smartly to create bridges of light for Jake to cross. One false step and Jake gets pulled into the darkness. Along the way he'll encounter twisted versions of his school's faculty, which must be battled in order to advance. LIT is a horror/puzzle game that requires the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers. It contains 30 levels, five boss battles, replay modes and several unlockables, including multiple endings, Dark Mode timed challenges and an unlockable character.
Meanwhile over on the virtual console you can pick up classic Sega Genesis title Wolf of the Battlefield: Mercs for 800 Wii Points.
Following a rash of terrorism outbreaks and increasing opposition from guerilla fighters, the U.S. government has decided to hire a group of professional mercenaries to undergo secret missions, battling through enemy lines to go where no ordinary soldier would dare to go. Based on the popular arcade game, the SEGA GENESIS version of MERCS lets you play as a MERC and also adds an original mode, allowing players to choose from five different characters. Take no prisoners as you shoot, drive jeeps and tanks, and clash against huge bosses to accomplish your mission.
