Lost Winds

I downloaded Lost Winds - a Wii ware original by Frontier.

It's a charming side scrolling adventure that uses the Wii-mote as a sort of virtual fan - you wave the Wii-mote and it blows wind on the screen.

It's a cool mechanic that allows you to create up drafts for your game character to navigate the world.

The graphics and sound are beautiful and the game play is compelling. The only complaints I have is that its sometimes a bit vague about what you do next and the waving mechanic to create wind can be tiring on the arm!

But for the price (1000 Wii Points) it's a great little game - and I'm looking forward to seeing what other devs do in this space.
