3 Great Games Like Toodee and Topdee on Nintendo Wii U

The Nintendo Wii U was the 2012 follow-up to the hugely success Wii console. It took the idea of the Wii's family motion controls and added in a controller with a built in screen. Although this is seen as s commercially less successful (or to many gamers, a failed system), for families it has been hugely successful at offering ways of playing together still not possible on even never consoles like the Nintendo Switch that followed it.

Because the Wii U is a console that uniquely has two screens displaying different views of the game world it's excellent for games where players take on different roles. This was epitomised by the launch title Nintendo Land and extended with games like Affordable Space Adventure and Wii Party U. In these games one player uses the Wii U gamepad and screen with up to four other players use the classic Wii Remote controllers and the TV view. For families it can be quite magical.

The Wii U also has a strong library of big budget exhuberent games like Super Smash Bros. Brawl, The Wonderful 101 and of course The Legend of Zelda Breath Of The Wild which is visual as good as the Switch version of the game (the Wii U was the system it was originally design for).

The Wii U also has the benefit of being able to play many games on just the gamepad screen, freeing up the TV for other viewers. This turns the gamepad into a pseudo portable system and can even be used to play Wii games. Although it's worth noting that the range from the Wii U base isn't that great.

Finally, the Wii U fully supports all the Wii controllers and game discs. This opens the door to a huge library of games and greatly reduces the cost as purchasing a newer console with four controllers can almost double the price of a Switch, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. Because of its reputation as a "failed" console you can regularly find Wii U consoles and games second hand at a really low price (£100/$120).

Educational Games That Are Also Good Games

These games have an educational element to them, but also offer experiences that are good games in their own right. This isn't busywork to trick you into learning, but clever and innovative ways to encounter history, physics, engineering, maths, geography and language subjects without feeling like you are in school. They also teach softer, deeper skills like long term strategy, planning, balancing systems, emotional intelligence, compassion, team-work and self-care.

Some of these games are aimed at younger players to play on their own, but others (as indicated by their PEGI ratings) are better for teenagers or played together in a family. Find some games that pique your interest, read through the details and decide how your child might benefit from playing them.
 

Attempt The Impossible

How hard a game is considered to be depends on who is playing it. A three-year-old tackling Zelda will struggle. But equally a new-to-games-parents will find Mutant Mudds quickly gets beyond them. The games in this list are known for being difficult. They wear the difficulty as a badge of honour. "None shall pass," except this with the will, time and belligerence to get good enough at this particular activity to beat the high bar the game sets.

This might be grappling with the flying mechanics in Rocket League, getting endlessly lost trying to find the next guardian in Shadow of the Colossus or coming up with the right tactic to get enough money for the ship you need in Elite. Of course, some of these games can be made easier, but to play them at their best is to ramp up the difficulty to max (crushing on The Last Of Us for example) and let them give you all they've got.
 

Thinky Puzzle Games

Most games make you think in some way or other. However, for games are designed to stretch your puzzle thinking more than others. Games that don't lean on reactions or visuals to tell a story. Instead, they offer a conundrum to get you thinking.

I've worked with some people from the Thinky Puzzle Game movement to track down the best little games that get you thinking. "The devotees of such games have been known to smile at all sorts of diverse puzzles and conundrums. Puzzle games, platformers, number games, word games, games with or without grids, games with or without secrets. Easy games. Hard games. But keep it thinky and save your FPS games and dexterity-intensive platformers for another day."

Many of the games in this list look simple and, well, a bit basic. But that is part of the charm. The clever bit is how their design draws you in and gets you thinking. If you want more like this, you can find helpful people on the Thinky Puzzle Discord group.
