La-Mulana

Treasure hunting has always been a solid go to subject for entertainment, most likely due to its inherent intrigue and danger, and it’s a well that video games go back to time and time again. Just look at classic titles like Tomb Raider or Uncharted and it's easy to see why gamers are drawn to the action and adventure that comes with searching through ancient ruins. The latest game to head deep below the surface in search of uncovering a great mystery is La-Mulana, a WiiWare remake of a Japanese side-scroller from 2005. La-Mulana evokes nostalgia on just about every level with this near perfect release, and finally brings this wonderfully punishing games to the States in proper form.

Far from carrying as much weight as Nintendo's big name mascots, Kirby has kind of always just been around. Created by HAL Laboratories in the early 1990s, by the now-renowned designer Mashahiro Sakurai, Nintendo’s most rotund character was originally called Popopo and used as a dummy character for testing other games. Going all the way back to his first release on the Game Boy in 1992, the pink puffball is like the overlooked little brother at Nintendo – he shows up everywhere, usually tries something unique and experimental while searching to find his own identity, and never has as much money as the big kids, like Link and Mario, to spend on making people think he’s cool.

While he may not have the same household name recognition as his peers, Kirby does have 20 games with a headlining role, spanning just about every console Nintendo has ever released, so someone at Nintendo has to like him (hint: it's likely Nintendo of Japan President Satoru Iwata who worked at HAL Laboratory in Kirby's heyday). This year, Kirby turns twenty years-old, and Nintendo is celebrating his birthday in style with his own special game compilation, Kirby's Dream Collection, which brings together six of his early works on one Wii disc.
