WiiWare Releases 6/23/08

We get one game this week, but it looks to be a great one, and for a good price.
My comments in red.

Gyrostarr(High Voltage Software, 1-4 players, Rated E for Everyone-Mild Fantasy Violence, 700 Wii Points): Gyrostarr challenges you and up to three additional players to pilot your ships through a series of twisting, turning technoplasma tracks while battling a variety of deadly alien foes at ever-increasing speeds. While fighting and maneuvering, you must collect enough energy to activate the ancient warpgate at the end of each track. Succeed, and you can journey to the next, even deadlier track. Fail, and the gate will slam shut, destroying your ship. Enhance your ship with weapon pickups, coordinate attacks with your friends to fire powerful combined blasts and use your grapple to snag energy and pickups in the midst of combat. Control your ship with the Wii Remote™ controller, Nunchuk™ controller or Classic Controller™, or use the "paired" control system that allows two players to use a connected Wii Remote and Nunchuk or Classic Controller at the same time. Offering 50 levels of intense action, powerful pickups, high-speed bonus levels and mayhem for up to four players, Gyrostarr is a killer arcade challenge.
I love these types of games, and 4 player action is a great feature. The part about collecting energy sounds slightly annoying when all you really want to do is blow things up, but I'm sure it will be incorporated well.

The Virtual Console will also recieve a good game today in Alex Kidd In Miracle World(yay!).
It also recieves Burning Fight, which I have heard is a horrible value for what you get.

These games will be released Monday June 23 at 9:00 PCT.
