After offering no new releases at all last week for the sake of putting more focus on the WiiWare launch, the Virtual Console has now returned with a grand total of one new arrival. It’s a bit disheartening for retro fans to get a game like Sky Kid as the lone new VC release this week, and we have to hope that the Console is only in a lull right now and will eventually ramp back up to at least two new additions to the Wii Shop each Monday – there are just too many great, untapped titles from yesteryear left for Nintendo’s retro service to be pushed aside and forgotten for too long. Save your 500 Wii Points and don’t download Sky Kid this week – save them, and wait for the VC to actually come back to life again.
Sky Kid is amusing for a few levels, but will get old quick. The enemies' different shooting styles (exploding shots, missiles, etc.) will quickly get the better of you, and it's just not long enough to last you a while. There is a simultaneous two player mode where you can try to annoy your friend, but even this isn't really that fun. The lack of music, aside from an endlessly repeating 15-second tune, also contributes to its low score.
