The player must take full advantage of DS' unique touch-screen and online capabilities to flick, rub, and draw as he helps the alien navigate through 60 interactive, pulse-pounding levels. Additionally, the game features wireless gameplay, the ability to create stages, and much more. In WireWay players utilize the touch-screen capabilities as they avoid dangerous obstacles - including falling rocks, eerie skulls, and spiky floors -- while they flick the alien with the wire using the stylus, rub the screen to create wind, and draw wires to assist the alien. As they break walls, open new paths, and collect stars to power up, players have as much time as they need to avoid the enemies and help the alien find his way home. Additionally, gamers can challenge up to four players wirelessly for an intense multiplayer race using the local wireless feature. [Konami] Expand

  1. WireWay stands firmly as a platform-puzzle adventure on the DS. Sadly, much of its appeal is dampened by the disorientation of the dual screens. Hopefully, these issues can be resolved for a sequel – the potential is certainly there.
  2. WireWay is a surprisingly entertaining little game. While the main Quest Mode is a bit short at about four hours, the game offers considerable replay value with its Challenge and Versus Modes.

    WireWay tries very hard to be a great game and I often found myself wanting to give it the benefit of the doubt, but the lingering camera issue hits too close to home.
  4. Unfortunately, the gap between the DS's two screens can be a hindrance, and the frustrating camera controls will often have you blindly shooting offscreen. [Holiday 2009, p.89]
  5. Feels more like a budget release. [Jan 2010, p.75]
  6. 60
    Had Konami considered a wider camera display and additional multiplayer modes, WireWay could've been a huge hit. If you can accept these shortcomings, the game's worth a try.
  7. The game offers plenty of stages, and ranks your score at the end of each. Challenges are opened up after you finish each level, and if you haven’t become disenchanted with Wiley by then, there’s a lot left to do. That is, if you still give a flick.
