Evasive Space

Continuing the multi-directional shooter theme on today’s Wii Shop Channel update (which also included Life Force on the Virtual Console), the sole WiiWare title added is Evasive Space.  Developed by High Voltage Software (makers of the upcoming Wii FPS The Conduit), players take on the role of Konki, a Stellar Guardian who must track down and reclaim the Constellation Stones stolen by Dr. Dark Matter, lest the universe go dark forever (think Dragon Ball meets Legend).  Using the Wii Remote’s IR pointer, players must guide Konki’s ship through 20 levels, avoiding obstacles and collecting power-ups, making it within a certain amount of time or by completing certain requirements.  Beyond the story mode, the game also offers a four-person, competitive multiplayer, though it is offline only.  Evasive Space can be downloaded for 1,000 Wii Points.  The official description can be found below:

Evasive Space™ (Yukes Company of America, 1-4 players, Rated E for Everyone – Mild Fantasy Violence, 1,000 Wii Points): Launch a one-of-a-kind mission to rescue the stars. The universe is going dark, and it’s up to you, Konki the Stellar Guardian, to set things right. Dr. Dark Matter and his roving band of space thieves have stolen many of the Constellation Stones that make up the heavens. It's time to suit up, power up, recover the Stones and once again bring light to the night sky. Using the Wii Remote™ controller's unique pointer capabilities, simply point and thrust Konki through 20 dangerous time- and collection-based missions in the harshest of environments. Navigate through narrow, mazelike astral caves riddled with space worms, steam pipes and mining drills. Explore vast space stations while avoiding turret fire, mines and huge crushing gears. Weave through cluttered asteroid fields and gaseous planetary rings. Evade the hazards, pick up precious items and ship upgrades, and save the Constellation Stones before the night sky is lost forever.
