RaveWild is a mix between top-down shooters, tower-defense, and real-time strategy. The player must create three different units to protect themselves as invaders pour in at an increasing rate.

NOTICE: The hosted version is v0.2, v0.3 is lost for the time being.


  • Select and control different units using the Wiimote pointer.
  • Watch AI-controlled units engage in combat against invaders!
  • Units level up as they defeat invaders, growing stronger in the process.
  • Select from three different units: Fighter, Sniper, and the immobile-but-durable Turret.
  • Move your character around, command selected units to follow you as a defense or order them to assault their targets!
  • My first homebrew game! That's always a nice extra on top. ^^


B Button: Hold down and drag to select units; fire bullets when in Fighter Mode.

A Button: Order units to move towards a designated spot/Select an invader to attack.

Analog Stick: Move your character around the screen.

- Button: Create units to defend you, positioned where your pointer currently is.

Left/Right on Pad: Cycle through and select which unit you want to create.

1 Button: Order selected units to attack.

2 Button: Order selected units to defend.

Home: Return to the menu if in-game, exit the game if at the menu.

Down on Pad: Switch between Commander Mode (select and move minions) and Fighter Mode.


0.3 - Nope, I didn't give up on this just yet!

     Added particles when combatants are hit and destroyed.
     Finally fixed score, screen adjustment saving
     Strategy Mode added for a more "Tower Defense" style of gameplay.
     Nixed Survival Mode for the newly-added Strategy Mode; the shake barrier unbalanced the game anyway.
     The player can now defend themselves against invaders when in Fighter Mode.
     All combatants now have rapid fire.
     "How to Play" feature was nixed.
     Also, high scores are now saved in XML.


     Discovered that your applications are added to the Homebrew Browser without warning. DevelopmentEffort ++
     Added some 8-bit sound effects.
     Fixed certain variables not being reset when a game is restarting.
     You can adjust the width and height gaps in the Options menu, to help with any overscan.
     Added shield element: hold either the Z or C on the nunchuk and shake to generate a unit-healing, enemy-bullet-negating barrier.


     Initial Release.

Known Issues

  • "How to Play" not implemented yet.
  • Bullet collision detection can be a bit eyebrow raising at times.
  • Apparently, there's some selection irks that I've just noticed.
  • More bullets == chances of slowdown in later waves.
