Publisher: Circle Entertainment
Price: $4.99 / 500 DSi Points

You are a member of a family of military geniuses who came from the Empire, and have lived on a beautiful island for many years. The Empire then arrived on the island and now control everything, and are seeking valuable resources and gold. They have ruined the island's environment and have hunted down and killed the tribal people; some of whom are your friends. You must now stop the Empire and protect your people by becoming a commander and leading your people against the evil Empire. This is a revolution for you and the entire island!

Fish Tank
Publisher: iFun4All
Price: $5.00 / 500 Wii Points

You probably know exactly what video games are and how to play them. However, if you haven't played the iFun4all's FishTank yet, you can't really say that you have seen everything! FishTank is a combination of a very popular Match 3 genre with a puzzle video gamestyle. It is an arcade-style matching game but instead of matching gems or blocks you collect shoals of colored fish. In order to do that, you need to build up a combination of four or more identical fish and press a corresponding button to remove them from the net. The gameplay goes horizontally – not vertically as you might be used to.
