Club Nintendo’s Games of May Revealed


The calendar page has flipped once again, and that means a fresh refresh of the games available for Coins from America’s Club Nintendo. Here’s what you can pick up during the month of May:

One of the greatest DSiWare games Nintendo’s ever produced, Art Style: PiCTOBiTS is a retro-tastic pixel puzzler that has you matching colors of falling blocks with taps of the stylus to assemble old-school NES sprites on the upper screen, all while listening to a killer chiptune soundtrack remixing classic Nintendo themes in the background. It scored an Editor’s Choice Award and a Great rating of 8.5 when we reviewed it three years ago, and is certainly this month’s best option if you don’t already own it. (Just remember that you need a 3DS to grab DSiWare games from Club Nintendo. An older DSi or DSi XL won’t work.)

This month’s other portable option is a lot less interesting, as it’s good old clunky Urban Champion once again. I called this the worst game Nintendo’s ever made in my review last August and said 3D was wasted on it, ultimately scoring it with a Painful rating of 2.5. So, yeah, probably not the best choice for your Club Coins here in May.

On the console side of things, Nintendo’s offering up the WiiWare on-rails shooter Eco Shooter: Plant 530. I thought this one was Decent and worthy of a 7.0 score when I reviewed it in January 2010, so it could be worth a second look today. The most interesting thing about it was its compatibility with the Wii Zapper accessory – Nintendo’s only other game to support that peripheral was Link’s Crossbow Training before this one came along.

And, lastly, we have Snowpack Park. This WiiWare release slipped past way under the radar back in November of 2010, but it’s a bit like playing a milder, more casual version of Pikmin with a bunch of penguins following you around instead of plant creatures. Toss in Mii support, virtual pet aspects, some mini-games and a wintry aesthetic and you get a download that might also be worth the investment of a few surveys’ worth of Coins to try out.

And there you have them, the month of May’s four new Club Nintendo game rewards for North America. These games will be available until June 1, when the calendar page will flip again and another new set of choices takes their place. Which of these, if any, will you be getting?

Lucas M. Thomas appreciates the reminder about the awesomeness of PiCTOBiTS, and is now powering up his DSi to give it another go. Join him on his IGN blog and Twitter.
