Minecraft: Story Mode - The Complete Adventure (Telltale Games, available December 16) - €34.99/£28.99

Embark on a perilous quest across the Overworld, to the End, and beyond. With a team of friends at your side, and a troubled land in need of heroes, your decisions – what you say and do - drive the story around you, so choose wisely! Features fan-favourites Stampycat, DanTDM, CaptainSparklez, StacyPlays and LDShadowLady.

Pikmin 2 (Nintendo, Wii DL) - €19.99/£17.99
Captain Olimar has just returned home, and is pleased to be in one piece. After crash-landing on an alien planet, he quickly learned that the only way to escape was to utilise the talents of the Pikmin: the cutest little creatures that under his command sought out the scattered components of his beloved spacecraft. With only 30 days to complete the mission before his emergency oxygen supplies ran out, Olimar will never forget the Pikmin who aided him in his hour of need. The NEW PLAY CONTROL! series features Nintendo GameCube classics updated for Wii! New features, new experiences and, most importantly, new ways to control the games are waiting for you, whether you’re new to the titles or have played the originals on GameCube.

Breakout Defense (nuGAME) - €7.00/£7.00
Breakout Defense is a breakout game for one or two players. Play single player against the AI and aim for a high score or two player mode competing against a friend. Supports Off-TV Play mode. This title cannot be played with the Wii Remote only.

Scribble (Bear Box Media) - €2.99/£2.99

Think you've played a game like this before? Think again! Play in Versus, Teams, Elimination, Barricade or even Tug'O'Draw mode, and find out who is the best artist! Introducing optional 'Mutators' that change how you play. Too good at drawing? How are you at drawing when you can't see the page? What if the ink travels in the opposite direction to your pen? Mutators can really switch up the game, adding that random element to the game. Child friendly words! Players can toggle easy mode on and off for individuals, enabling younger players to take part in the same game as everyone else! Don't think our list of over 1500 words is quite enough? No problem! Add your own with the Word Creator!

Teslapunk (klutzGames) - €9.99/£8.99
Teslapunk is a classic 2D shoot-em-up with fast-paced arcade gameplay. You have to defend Earth against an invasion from Mars lead by Emperor Zangórax, who back on Mars is a popular DJ by night and a frantic invader by day. The Invasion takes you through 6 different levels each uniquely designed. Additionally there is a Survival Game Mode where you can level up your ship and buy helpful items. This title cannot be played with the Wii Remote only.

Test Your Mind (XenoHorizon) - €1.99/£1.99
Trick questions, puzzles, tests of memory, and more! This game full of mini-games will test your ability to think outside the box and use the Wii U GamePad to solve various problems. Rules come and go as they please and it's up to you to decipher the solutions to the problems... and maybe even what it's asking in the first place! If you manage to pass the test (don't worry, it's fair), have a friend or family member try it and you might struggle to hold in your laughter as THEY struggle to figure out what they're doing! When you've figured out all the problems, play a fast-paced memory game in local multiplayer and see who can win a battle of brains. Just don't hurt your mind—we only want to test it!
