Another week, another batch of Wii U and 3DS downloads.
Wii U features the weirdest ‘thing’ with Bumpie’s Party, a game well worth watching other people ‘enjoy’, and it also receives a few Virtual Console offerings. Elsewhere the 3DS is graced with Steamworld Dig, a Spelunky-type affair that looks mighty interesting.
This week’s downloads:
- Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party (Wii U Download) – £5.99
Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party is a cute, addictively fun game that puts an innocent modern spin on a party classic as players sit in a circle around the Wii U GamePad, taking turns to spin the virtual bottle and pair up for a series of innovative physical micro-challenges! Can you and a friend press the A Button and B Button on the Wii Remote without using your hands? Or how about holding your Wii Remote behind your friend’s back while you both jump together in sync? If it sounds easy, it isn’t!

To be a successful ruler you will need not only great warriors but also farmers and scientists; growing crops to keep your people well-fed, and developing new weapons to aid you in battle. But watch out for unexpected events like plagues, floods or swarms of locusts!
