Hudson has already proved its mettle as champion of the Wii ball rolling game with Kororinpa. Which is perhaps why it%26rsquo;s back to have another go with a Balance Board-compatible ball rolling game that%26rsquo;s officially known as the Kororinpa sequel in the US, but strangely titled without any official sequel-sounding moniker in the UK.
It calls on similar skills, such as a light hand with the Wii remote (if you%26rsquo;re using it) to tilt your way through levels set in snow, outer space and water. You get a range of themed balls, each with unique stats, to unlock. It%26rsquo;s the 100 Balance Board levels and the Edit mode that make it stand apart from the previous Kororinpa. But unfortunately they don%26rsquo;t make it better, and this time around it isn%26rsquo;t as charming, as precise to control or as beautifully designed as its predecessor.
