With the Wii U going through something of a game drought what are you supposed to play until Pikmin 3 arrives?\u00a0 We have selected 10 underrated or forgotten games for the original Wii that are worth tracking down to plug the gap. Muramasa: The Demon Blade Muramasa: The Demon Blade has recently been re-released for PS Vita, but the original is still highly recommended. Its\u00a0hand-drawn\u00a0art style remains impressively beautiful and\u00a0beneath the\u00a0visual\u00a0flair is an extremely solid\u00a0action RPG\u00a0executed with verve\u00a0and\u00a0swagger. Little King's Story A common misconception is that the Wii was only good for quick and casual games. That's rubbish of course, and if you need an example to prove the point, look no further than Little King's Story.\u00a0It\u2019s a superficially\u00a0cutesy\u00a0game but cut with\u00a0strategic\u00a0depth, complexity and consequence.\u00a0Little King's Story is a\u00a0wonderful\u00a0experience\u00a0that fosters a genuine sense of connection between the player and its characters. Wario Ware: Smooth Moves With Game and Wario for the Wii U receiving mixed reviews, now might be a good time to track down Wario Ware: Smooth Moves. It's a delightfully chaotic rag-bag of mini-games, many of which use the Wii Remote in\u00a0enjoyable and surprising ways.\u00a0Six\u00a0years on, it remains one of the best games to showcase Nintendo's Wii controller. Deadly Creatures The recent Playstation 3 game Tokyo Jungle is a reminder that playing as nature's beasties is a lot of fun. Deadly Creatures wraps its spider\/scorpion simulation with a human story of deception and treasure hunting. And it stars Billy Bob Thornton\u00a0and\u00a0Dennis Hopper.\u00a0Deadly Creatures is totally bizarre, rough round the edges, but refreshingly\u00a0different. A reminder of how inventive and quirky video games can be when given the chance. Another Code: R \u2013 A Journey into Lost Memories The sequel to the\u00a0cult\u00a0Nintendo DS title, Another Code (or Trace Memory\u00a0in the\u00a0US),\u00a0this is a slow-paced, almost lethargic adventure game. Like its predecessor it excels in making novel use of its host platform with a multitude of\u00a0Wii Remote tricks.\u00a0It\u2019s somewhat rambling but has a wistful atmosphere that makes it the perfect game for a rainy afternoon. Boom Blox (and Boom Blox 2) Spielberg. There he was at the Xbox One reveal, peddling a Halo TV series just as he enthused about the merging of games and television back in 2005. However, Spielberg's lasting legacy in the game space will surely be this incredible block\u00a0busting title and its sequel. A\u00a0bold\u00a0aesthetic, amazing music and genuinely fun 'pick up and throw' game play make this a must have. Angry what? You, Me and the Cubes Like Boom Blox this game uses the Wii remote to fling objects at the screen, but in this case you fling little people that you have to land and balance on floating cubes. Described like that you could be forgiven for thinking that this WiiWare title is best missed, but you would be wrong. Despite its odd concept the game has a hypnotic tone that is oddly affecting. LIT LIT arrived in the dying days of the Wii, and on WiiWare... hardly a recipe for success. But don't let that stop you handing over some Wii points for this an expertly judged spooky puzzle game from WayForward. Lost in Shadow\/A Shadow's Tale Lost in Shadow gets points for the games it evokes as much as anything else, feeling like a 2D Ico spin-off. \u00a0Aside from its obvious influences it also plays a good game with its light and shadow manipulation mechanics proving challenging and interesting. Mario Strikers Charged With FIFA not making an appearance on the Wii U this year you could do worse than to dig up this gem from 2007. It's fast, chaotic, unfair and funny in equal measure. It also has a great character roster that, among other things, makes Birdo something of a superstar. Of course there are many other great games available for the Wii with a higher profile, the likes of Pandora's Tower, Sin and Punishment, Xenoblade and Zack & Wiki,\u00a0but what would you put in the forgotten gems category?
