Actionloop Twist / Magnetica Twist review (WiiWare World)

It was always likely that WiiWare would provide the perfect platform for the criminally overlooked puzzle genre. These kind of games have always been popular but given their nature they are often unfairly ignored when sitting next to higher-profile releases such as Super Mario and Metroid. With WiiWare already providing us with the likes of Dr. Mario, Pop, Toki Tori and the prospect of Tetris in the future, the puzzle genre is unlikely to be diluted on Nintendo's new download platform. The question is: how does a relatively unknown game like Magnetica Twist weigh up against the bigger names?

Magnetica Twist (known as Actionloop Twist in the Europe) is developed by the Mitchell Corporation and is based on their 1998 arcade game PuzzLoop. The game makes passing references to Bust A Move and Zuma (although given the times of release it's likely Zuma was heavily influenced by the original PuzzLoop). This instalment is based on the DS version which was released to high praise in 2006 and offers the same range of modes and gameplay, but given its WiiWare price tag, is somewhat cheaper than the DS counterpart..... (Actionloop Twist (WiiWare), Magnetica Twist (WiiWare), Minna de Puzzleloop (WiiWare), Wii) 7/10
