I still mildly favour the WiiWare version for its clever control scheme (where the Wii Remote guided the wind spirit, while the more traditional...
Excerpt: When Nintendo’s WiiWare service debuted in 2008, its initial launch of original download titles ranked between decent time-killers (such as Final Fantasy: My Life as a King and Defend Your Castle ) to forgettable fodder ( TV Show King , Blackjack Casino ).
