RECOVER THE TREASURE OR FACE THE ANGRY DRAGONS

Performing snowboarding tricks can be a testing experience at the best of times, but add in the pressure of having to recover treasure for a hoard of angry dragons and it becomes a white-knuckle ride. In Trollboarder for Nintendo DSiWare this is the challenge you are presented with. Use your snowboarding skills to win back stolen treasures and fend off the blazing dragons demanding their loot be returned.

Also on Nintendo DSiWare this week, lose yourself in complex 3D puzzles that will amaze and delight in 3D Twist&Match. Puzzling fun that will keep you entertained for hours on end.

Meanwhile, on WiiWare, train your mind and body to peak condition.
