City Builder coming to the Wii

Next Tuesday, February 9, 2010, the game, City Builder, is going to be coming out for the Nintendo Wii. In this game, which was developed by Collision Studios, there are two classic game mechanics that are put together in to one game. You will have fun as you stack water pipes, roads and power lines in order to begin making an ever growing city. There are four different continents that you will be able to play in. The game presents a new take on other classic puzzle pipe games by having three different levels including the road, underground (water mains) and the sky (power lines). Connect the pieces as you race up against the clock. There are various obstacles in your way. Witness each one of the cities grow in a different way!

Here are some of the features that are included in the game:

  • 100 different challenging levels
  • More than 20 hours of game play
  • Various levels going up against the boss
  • Use different strategies to succeed

  • Midnight Club: Los Angeles (Xbox 360)
  • Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Nintendo Wii)
  • Mario Party 8 (Nintendo Wii)
  • Grand Theft Auto IV (Xbox 360)
  • Well the Xbox 360 completely dominated the list of rentals having 17 games out of the whole list of 20 games including the top 8 games on the list. The Wii had the other 3 games. It is some what surprising to see that one of the top three gaming consoles, the PlayStation 3, does not have even 1 game on this list. Why do you think it is that the PlayStation 3 did not have one single game as one of the top 20 rentals for the year?
