I got Hydroventure on the Wii, but never got round to completing it. I think the game is a better fit on 3DS to be honest, and the 360 mechanics are interesting. I'll check it out if it drops from its ridiculous price!
3DS Code = 4914-3785-6773 - feel free to add! :)

Loving my Wii U and it's libary!

It is like £7.99, right? That is not bad for a game with a lot to it. With mobile phones selling tosh for 69p these days, a lot of people seem to be unwilling to pay anything over £1.99 for quality.

The developers of this are working on a Wii U title, right? I'll probably go for that instead.
