The swan song of the NES never got much attention. Gamers had already moved on to other systems, for one, and its chances of finding an audience were further crippled by the fact that a superior SNES version of the same game was released on the same day. It's curious that Nintendo has chosen to send out the 8-bit Woods to Wii gamers, when the 16-bit version is more fully featured. On top of that, this NES edition is also available to owners of Animal Crossing, where it appears as a rare playable collectible. If you're interested in this title's place in Nintendo history, give it a download and see for yourself how the NES went out. But if you're more concerned with its unique take on puzzle genre gameplay, give this one a "wait and see" – you'd be better served to spend your points on the SNES version, when and if it becomes available.

Wario’s Woods is fun for a while but enjoyment for most will no doubt be short-lived. If you are a fan of falling-block style games you will no doubt get pleasure out of this but there really isn’t anything original to see here.
Zu Anfang wirkt Wario’s Woods eventuell etwas kompliziert, nach einer Weile erklimmt, packt und arrangiert man die Item-Formationen aber mit einiger Freude.

Feeling rather similar to the recently released Pokemon Link, it's typically frantic, but a little overcomplicated to the point that it feels little more than a curiosity next to other puzzle classics of the time. Another odd VC release.
