Manufacturer's Description : Prepare to rock and roll as your brain does a loop the loop with the ultimate Wii puzzle game. Using tilting Wii's motion sensitive Wii Remote with poise and precision, players must seek to navigate their favourite cute and quirky balls, each with their own look and varying benefits, through complex 3D mazes. Therefore no complicated button combinations are necessary, the tactile controls allow players to tip and tilt their environment in all directions, even upside-down to 180 degrees - making the game intuitive and easy for anyone to pick up and play, whilst still remaining challenging and addictive.

You may already have played a mini-game on the Wii, in something like Rayman Raving Rabbids or WarioWare, where you have to move a ball through a maze simply by tilting the Wii remote. Kororinpa (basically the Japanese equivalent of the word "plink") is those mini-games expanded and turned into a whole game. It’s also not too dissimilar to Super Monkey Ball, in the sense that you control the maze, not the ball, moving the remote to tilt the game world and get your little marble to the goal on each level. Unlike Monkey Ball though the game works in full 3D, with you twisting and turning the maze so that one minute you’re rolling down a slide which you then twist around to become the ceiling or wall.

As you might imagine the added complexity of thinking in three dimensions makes the game seem almost impossibly hard at times, but it’s ruthlessly fair and however much you might like to pretend failure is always your fault and not the game or the controller’s. Sensibly, developer Hudson has ensured that the maze designs are the only overcomplicated aspect, and there are a number of cute animal shaped marbles to unlock as well as some that are heavier or more bouncy. There’s also a split screen two player mode where oddly the second player has to use the nunchuck – a feature apparently added only to cause animosity between players as you fight for control. It’s not for the short of temper, but for those with the patience to play it this is the most rewarding puzzler for a long time.
