  1. If you look at Carnival King as a title that is meant to be a throwback to both classic carnival games and arcade titles, there is a lot to like about it. Just realize that it won't last you very long, unless you are the kind that needs to convince the world that you are the best at this kind of game.
  2. Solid play control, a wide variety of shooting gallery themes, and a competitive two-player game mode make this WiiWare title a lot of fun, especially considering the very reasonable 700 Wii Point price tag.

    This is just aiming and shooting, and the mini-games fly by fast.

    Addictive game if you enjoy time attack type games. The better you shoot, the harder it gets, which allows you rack up more points. Addictive game if you enjoy time attack type games.
