There are many trials to overcome in three zany game modes. True to any kung fu movie, you start by learning the Zen arts - a chilled out stage to get you familiar with the controls. Once your skills are fully waxed, enter the kung fu training movie montage, which consists of insane mini-games. Once your skills are honed, enter the ultimate battle as the instructor in your own disco kung fu dojo.

Nintendo DSiWare

BLOONS

Publisher: Hands-On Mobile

Players: 1

ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)

Price: 500 Nintendo DSi Points

Description: BLOONS is an exciting puzzle game based on the simple fact that popping balloons is fun. Pop your way through dozens of puzzling levels in this exciting puzzle adventure. Each level will have a different arrangement of balloons. Use darts to try and pop as many as you can. Watch for special balloons, blocks and darts, and have fun discovering what they do. BLOONS is a great game that you can pick up and play for a few minutes while you're queued up at the store, or sit on the couch for hours as you work your way through 70 included levels. As an added bonus, there's also a level editor that you can use to create your own balloon puzzles.

Sokomania

Publisher: CINEMAX

Players: 1

ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)

Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points

Description: Several crates have been placed on the playing area. Players must control a figure that can push the crates forward. The aim is to get all the crates to their designated places. Players select the episode they want to play and the level they wish to start at. Only completed levels (highlighted in green) and the first unfinished level in each episode are accessible. By repeating previously finished levels, players can try to finish them with fewer crate movements. But be warned: Those movements are added to the total movement number of the actual game, so for the best (i.e., the lowest) number of movements, it's advisable to finish the game in one run.

Your task is to push the crystals forward to their target destinations one at a time. It sounds simple, but be careful. You can push your jewel into an impossibly locked position if you don't plan ahead. As the mazes get harder and the crystals pile up, you'll need clever thinking to clear the labyrinth.
