Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party - more minigames revealed

Last week we showed you six minigames (opens in new tab) from Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party, showing off the game's sense of humour and light-hearted digs at both TV culture and some well-known videogames. Not wanting to buck the trend, we've got some more for you today, with the last batch coming in an exclusive reveal next week. So what's on the box today?

Night of the Zombiddz

In this homage to George Romero's classic horror flicks, the Rabbids are rising from their graves, complete with visible brain through rotten skull. But, bizarrely, you lose points for shooting them. Instead, you have to shoot Rabbids in chicken outfits (no, we don't understand either). Shoot with the pointer function and shake the nunchuk to reload - it's simple but fun and we like the zombie Rabbids. Oh, and the make-out scene at the start made us chuckle.

Rabbidly Stunts

In this mode, your rabbid gets fired out of a huge cannon so hard it gets launched into space. On an ironing board, of course. Ignoring the fact there's no sound in space so the speed boost farting should technically be silent (yeah, cos that's what's unbelieveable about this scene), it's still entertaining, especially when you're using the balance board to surf through the stars.

At the end of each section you get to choose your route, with the left-hand option offering an easier ride - although to be honest there's not that much to challenge you in either route. The secenery is more impressive to the right though, as a rule.

Top of the Flops

This one is really good fun, especially if you choose the drums. It's standard rhythm-action fare (and similar to a previous Rabbids minigame), but using the Wii-mote and nunchuk in a drumming motion really feels like drumming. And if you're not playing, there's plenty to laugh at in the 3D band scene behind the gameplay - like the flautist who keeps doing the motions even after the music's stopped.

Be sure to check back next week for our final exclusive TV Party reveal.
