    Smile Games "with levels" for the wife

    Howdy, there. I've happily found out my wife does dig them video games, but she likes games "with levels". From my collection, she favors Boom Blox and NSMBW--ye olde "wife likes tennis" thing won't cut it. I gather she likes games with specific objectives and accessible levels, that don't require heavy-gamer skills nor previous knowledge of a more complex plot (NSMBW does have a plot, but come on... Mario ain't gonna eat that muffin anyways... He should just let Bowser do whatever it is he wants to do with her).

    So, what other games do you recommend?

    I'm drawing a blank, but if you get some oldschool nes and snes emulators on there she'll have all the levels she wants. Can't beat super mario 3

    A casual game with levels and objectives that's not too involving. I don't know if you are objected to Japanese games or if your wii is even modded to play them but Ivy the Kiwi is perfect. I'm addicted to the simple game. It's about a lost little kiwi trying to get home to its mom but if you don't know Japanese the story is pretty nil. The story doesn't make much of a difference anyways because it's light. You pretty much have to get the kiwi from point a to point b of each level without letting it die. The kiwi constantly moves forward and it's up to you to take the wii remote and guide it through the stage, past enemies and traps by drawing ivy strands as bridges, platforms, and so forth. As the levels progress and get harder you have to start using other talents like swinging the kiwi with the ivy vine or pulling back on the ivy like a rubber band to snap the kiwi into the air. It comes highly recommend!

    Gotta thank you all.

    VC/emulators is surely a great idea. Maybe I should ask her of any old-school games she would like to play (though as far as I know the last game she actively played was Pac-Man on an Atari 2600...).

    Yeah, I thought about Mario Galaxy, but can you beat it without the advanced controls? I use all my Mario 64 experience when playing it, and was a bit afraid it would be too hard for her.

    Well, learning Japanese is on (in? Brazilian here) my list, but quite low in priority I must say. Either way, I've downloaded PokÚpark for my brother's stepson and it works perfectly, so I will give it a try.

    Keep'em comin'!

    P.S.: Maybe we should work on a list of "wife-certified" games?

    I wouldn't worry about the language of Ivy the Kiwi so much because the story is only in the beginning and end and you can get an idea of whats going on from the pictures. It's all about awesome 2D gameplay rather than story. If I'm not mistaken it's getting an English release some time this fall. I can think of a few wiiware games off the top of my head that probably fall into the requirements like Cave Story. I'll look through my game collection tonight when I get home and see if I can come up with any others.
