I remember buying this game shortly after it was released. It was one of the first "killer-apps" declared for the WiiWare service, plus it shared some similarities with Kirby: Canvas Curse for DS. It seemed almost too good to be true, and it was.
LostWinds' main gimmick is the use of the Wii pointer icon as a tool that uses the wind to help your little guy get from one stage to another.
That's all fine and good, however I found the air mechanic to get very boring after awhile. The levels later felt like a chore, and I didn't make it very far into the game.
