It's always nice to be surprised (unless the surprise involves a clown shining a torch in your face in the middle of the night) and MaBoShi is a very surprising game. It's a quiet, unassuming little thing, sitting there on the Wii Shop shelf and doing very little to alert you to the evil genius lurking behind its obscure title.
"Maboshi's Arcade" é uma boa opção entre os vários novos produtos disponibilizados pela Nintendo através do WiiWare, seu serviço de distribuição online de jogos inéditos para Wii. Relativamente barato, traz três minigames que partiram de idéias simples e que se transformaram em divertimento agradável e viciante.
Published by Nintendo and developed by Japanese company Mindware, Maboshi's Arcade is a unique puzzle game with one goal: score a million points at the behest of the robotic Mr. Maboshi. When playing by your lonesome, Mr. Maboshi appears, requesting that you help him to get to a million points over time. However, this simple goal is much more complex than it sounds because there are three different games that can be played cooperatively with up to three players simultaneously. These three games, all named after geometric shapes, are chosen by each player and can be played in any combination.

The three distinct arcade games offer some very fun and difficult casual gameplay, and the interactive element of playing all three on the same screen is simply brilliant. Puzzle addicts, arcade enthusiasts, and players seeking a solid and inexpensive multiplayer experience will find this WiiWare title fits the bill nicely.
A very strange and unique game. Perhaps it is not one that will keep you glued to the screen for hours at a time, but it really is addictive and will have you coming back often to try and better that elusive high score which you set the day before. With friends around the proposition is even more attractive.
It's a game design that offers simple controls and challenging gameplay in a presentation that's refreshingly unique. Some parts are more addictive than others, but the whole package makes for a much recommended download on the Wii.
