Of course you can download many of the big games from the eShop but here we're concentrating on the indie games; the ones that can only be downloaded from Nintendo's digital store, none currently costing more than £13. These are the best Wii U eShop games.
Some of these aren't essential but we're expecting them to be replaced as more Wii U eShop games are released. After all, with games such as Scram Kitty, Teslagrad and Tengami on the way, we expect some of these will slip down the top ten..
10. Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition
What is it? The HD version of 3DS platformer Mighty Switch Force comes to Wii U armed with a new selection of remixed levels. You'll have to play through all 21 originals to get to them which means more block switching, leaping and shooting as you help Patricia Wagon capture escaped convicts Hooligan Sisters. Once again, skilled gamers are challenged to beat the par times before trying out the tougher Hyper Drive levels.
What we said: Mighty Switch Force was fun the first time around and tough the second - as you tried to beat the par times set by the developers- but playing the stages a third time gets boring. Those Re-jigged Hyper Drive levels are tougher, but they're not a big enough reward for those who have played the 3DS game. And those who haven't? They'll have fun, but why couldn't WayForward appeal to both camps with an all-new selection of levels? Instead we have prettier versions of the originals with some remixed levels tacked on. For more money. Sure it looks pretty, but was Mighty Switch Force really a game that needed HD?
