|Basically take ''Animal Crossing Wild'' World on the DS, add in a city, and you have ''Animal Crossing: City Folk''. It's probably most fun if you don't own ''Wild World'' for DS and haven't played the Gamecube game (Or the original N64 version for that matter). If you haven't played an ''Animal Crossing'' game before, you are better off going for the superior Gamecube / DS versions.

|The only existing sequel to ''NiGHTS into Dreams'' for the Sega Saturn, created by some of the original dev team including the same lead designer. It's a 2.5D platformer but without platforming- just point the analog stick to where you want to go and the titular character, Nights, will float in that direction. Hold the button to speed up, and do this in circle formation around enemies to defeat them. The sense of physics/momentum is not as refined as it was in the original game, and hurt even more by the fact that Nintendo controllers used an octagonal rest instead of a round one, but it's nonetheless a great love letter the original and has a wonderful art direction.

|The only existing sequel to ''NiGHTS into Dreams'' for the Sega Saturn, in which you fly around as the titular jester-like character, Nights. It's a 2.5D platformer but without platforming- just point the analog stick to where you want to go and Nights will float in that direction. Hold the button to speed up, and do this in circle formation around enemies to defeat them. The goal system has been revamped so that you have chase down a large enemy and take their key, which makes TONS more sense mechanically for a game where you're meant to be going fast. The gameplay itself is not as refined as the original, and hurt even more by the fact that Nintendo controllers used an octagonal rest instead of a round one, but it's nonetheless utterly fascinating to see the NiGHTS universe expanded on. The art direction and soundtrack are wonderful. Supposedly the game was made by members of the original's dev team, including the same lead designer.

WiiWare is expected to shutdown on January 30, 2019. It is already impossible to add Wii points. Therefore, this list should only contain games that are WiiWare-exclusive in some capacity.

|Top-Down Shooter

|Pretty much your run-of-the-mill mob killing top-down-shooter with tons of weapons, except this time it's with vampires and other horrible otherworldly beasts instead of just zombies. Hey, every downloadable service needs top-down shooters. Also on DSiWare and PSP Minis.

|You're a car, you're made of jelly, your engine sounds like someone blowing a rasberry. Each level you have to get to a flag at the end probably by going though various contraptions that will squish your jelly body. Car can change size for a limited time, and there's also a balloon and sticky wheels power-up in this one. Pretty fucking fun. Also on PSP.

The original Jelly Car also has an unofficial, homebrew port, which you can find on the Homebrew browser. And while the second one has more content, it lack the unpolished charm (and better control scheme) of the first one.
