  • Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse (NES, Platformer/Action, 1 player, 500 Wii Points = €5 / £3.75 / AU$7.50): Fight back against Dracula in the third exciting instalment of the highly popular Castlevania franchise! As with the original Castlevania, in this second sequel from 1990; the player’s goal is to work their way through deviously challenging levels, but this time there’s a difference – when the level ends, you can choose one of two paths to take for a completely different experience! — The most innovative feature of this game lies with the spirit companions that the player will meet through the journey. Besides the main character Trevor, who uses the traditional Belmont weapon, the Mystic Whip, as well as a number of items, the player can also strike up a spiritual partnership with any one of three distinctive characters. These include Sypha the imprisoned sorceress, Grant the pirate, who is able to jump high and climb up walls, and Alucard, who is Dracula’s son but has a bone to pick with his father. With a range of diverse characters and paths available to choose from, this game boasts incredible replay value, ensuring that each playthrough is a new experience!

    Devil World (NES, Arcade, 1 player, 500 Wii Points = €5 / £3.75 / AU$7.50): 1987
    In 1987 this little-known action game from Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto was released, in it you play heroic dragon Tamagon, who must defeat evil by collecting Boa-Boa Dots inside a maze and destroying enemies with his fire breath. However, keep an eye on the devil at the top of the screen, who instructs his minions to move the maze in random directions, trying to squash Tamagon within its walls. If this seems familiar, you might have seen the devil performing the same trick as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl!

    Ghosts ‘n Goblins (NES, Platformer/Action, 1 player, 500 Wii Points = €5 / £3.75 / AU$7.50): Ghosts’n Goblins was a popular arcade game before it made the leap to the NES in 1986. Like later games in the series, Ghosts’n Goblins presents quite a challenge to players brave enough to take on the role of Arthur and delve into the realm of demons and monsters to rescue the kidnapped princess. Choose your weapons wisely and take advantage of their strengths to deal with the situation at hand. Pass through the six gates that stand between you and Astaroth, and teach him a lesson in chivalry he’ll never forget. Demonstrating a high level of technical prowess for a game of its era, Ghosts’n Goblins presents a unique and unforgettable universe. The stage for adventure is set. Are you up to the test?
