Give thanks for the opportunity to lob penguins into a basketball hoop this week, courtesy of WiiWare and Snowpack Park, a game you might want to download to your Wii? No? Maybe Tetris then?

Nintendo's Snowpack Park, a penguin hunting and flightless bird mood management sim, leads this week's list of fresh downloadable options for WiiWare, DSiWare and Virtual Console. And while Tetris may not be the freshest of games, Tetris Party Live is certainly the most cost efficient way to play some classic Tetris against Nintendo DSi owners over a wi-fi connection.

In addition to new things to pay for, WiiWare also gets a batch of new demos, including And Yet It Moves, BIT.TRIP FATE, Jett Rocket and ThruSpace.

See the rest of the new downloadable options in the gallery.

Snowpack Park

Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) - Comic Mischief
Price: 800 Wii Points

Welcome to Snowpack Park! You've arrived in hopes of hanging out with some of the local penguins and learning how to take care of them. However, a recent storm has just sent the residents of the park fleeing to various islands throughout the area, and there are only a few penguins to be found. Take control of either a Mii™ character or one of the game's built-in characters and brave various terrains and unexpected obstacles. Travel from island to island, find penguins and bring them back safely to the park. But getting them back is just the beginning. The penguins have different moods, which will go up and down depending on how much interaction they have with you. If a penguin's mood gets too bad, it will leave the park. To prevent that from happening, you must learn how to feed, pet and play with the penguins in order to keep them happy. Throughout the park, you'll also find fun minigames to play, headwear pieces for the penguins to wear, fish for them to eat, blowfish to roll up into snowballs and a variety of other useful things. You can even collect photos of yourself and the penguins by visiting one of the park's photo-taking locations. Prepare for a heartwarming Antarctic adventure!
