GayGamer writes: "I hate it when reviews for Wii games, be it retail or WiiWare, use the phrase "...for a Wii game" as some sort of backhanded complement, as if things cannot play, sound, or look good on the system. Even if the system's hardware is relatively limited, all it takes is the right team with the right design to create something spectacular. Case in point, NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits. Coming from Spanish indie developers Over The Top Games, this WiiWare release draws from an eclectic mix of influences, while expanding traditional platforming action into something new with a few motion controls here and there. With this title, the young team has grasped a concept that many other Wii developers simply cannot: play to the system's unique controls while not over doing it and downplay graphics through stylization."
