That’s right – Wii and DS. The Wii game arrived today, and, to my surprise, it lets you send a copy of a port of Retro Evolved to your DS. Hurrah!
First up was the Wii “Galaxies” mode. It is ACE. I was expecting a slight drop in clarity of visuals (over the 360 Retro Evolved) but there isn’t really. It’s just not HD, that’s all. The level-based nature is a big difference to the game, but it works really well. I’ve worked through the first set of planets, and then two from the second set.
After that I had a go at the included Retro Evolved game, managing a feeble 300,000-ish points, ranking me 212th in the world. Ste Parker, of posting-in-ugvm “fame” is at 7th or 8th! Pff.
Finally, I played the DS version for a while, getting 360,000 points, even though it seemed much harder. How odd.
