Wii ware games made into apps

There has been a lot of wii ware games ported over and I was wondering if any one else thinks they shud port over good ones like lost winds and world of goo. They are both better than the majority of real wii games

Current faves:UniWar,Glyder, Assasin's Creed, Wolfenstein,Zenonia(beta testing)

Yes.

Toki Tori is coming soon.

Pop, Tiki Towers, and Midnight Bowling/Pool have already been ported as well as a few others.

I think they already were. Why not send them an e-mail yourself?

Equlibrio's being ported over, too. Can't wait

Of course they should port over the good ones I don't know how active the World Of Goo developers are on their own forum, or if they just decided to ignore the question, but there are two or three different threads asking about an iPhone port that have gone unanswered, starting around September of last year.

I'd think if anything they are going to go as downloadable content on the DSi (to compete with iTunes).

But idevices can simulate wii gameplay much easier and I am pretty sure app store sales are doing better than wii ware and world of goo really wouldn't, work on dsi becouse you would need touch screen on both screens vbecause. That small touch screen at the bottom wouldn't be big engough where an iPhone would be perfect. And lost winds requires higher graphics than the de can handle and the dsi just uses de games ps can someone find the creator of world of goo's email adress for me

Erm... not really.The top screen wouldn't have to be touch, it could simply be a map of sorts like many other games. And don't forget, the DSi touch screen is bigger than the iPhone screen.
