Gyrostarr announced for WiiWare

From IGN:

According to High Voltage, "Gyrostarr challenges you and up to three other players to fly through a twisting, turning techno-plasma canal in space, collecting energy to penetrate an alien portal and warp to the next conduit. Without that energy, your space vessels will smash head-first into the unforgiving anti-void." Naturally, each track is guarded by different enemy spacecraft, all of them out to gun you down and "feast on your collected energy."

Gyrostarr seems to run in both 480p and 16:9 widescreen modes and features an electronica-influenced soundtrack that is well matched to the on-screen action. The WiiWare launch title will cost 700 Wii Points ($7) -- a good bargain. With games like this, LostWinds and World of Goo set to debut with or shortly thereafter the launch of WiiWare in America, we couldn't be more excited about the forthcoming service.

$7 (less than a SNES game)? That might be the best bang for you buck yet for WiiWare and makes Star Solider look kinda bad in comparison. To go along with having graphics like that make Gyrostarr a must download game in my opinion. Look for more on this game and The Conduit very soon....

Too bad NIBRIS doesn't pull out of no where like High Voltage and actually show some results. I love these guys, they are totally out of left field.
