«©NCSX» A meteor is hurtling from deep space and on a collision course with the planet. That's not good. To prepare for the potential deep impact, gamers must play 50 mini-games to earn enough coin to save the world. Games include carrot plucking, rhythm exercises, and other short yet sweet Wii Remote waving exercises.

At the outset of the game, a short introductory sequence shows the space agency "NAZA" on high alert after their satellites detect a heavenly body that's headed towards the Earth. After the President is apprised of the situation, the NAZA station monitoring the meteor is destroyed. That leaves a family of amateur astronomers to deal with the threat. With the help of the Hataraku Help Wanted section and a TV host, the family plays an assortment of mini-games to save the planet.

Three mini-games are playable but another 47 games are eventually unlocked. The first three games are: A carrot plucking exercise, a fishing expedition, and a package delivery game where parcels are handed over to anxious customers. All of the games used a combination of the Nunchuk and Wii Remote where simple jerky motions are the key to success.

NCS Game Notes
» Three save slots are available for players to choose from.

» Upon starting a game, players may choose a boy or girl character. The boy however looks a lot like a girl.

» After entering your name in katakana, hiragana, or English, the game kicks off with a prologue where the space agency "NAZA" detects an anomaly in outer space. A massive meteor like the one that fell in Canada last week is heading towards the Earth and it's panic time. After alerting the President, it's too late and the NAZA station is destroyed. Halfway around the world, a family is watching an entertainment show on TV and later that evening, everyone gathers on the roof to stare at the stars through a telescope. The hero of your choosing spies a new star in the sky that's brighter than anything else around it. Gramps makes an assessment and realizes that Armageddon is nigh as the heavenly body rushes towards the planet. They have seven days to avert catastrophe.

» The game proper begins in the protagonist's room. Move him with the Nunchuk and go to sleep by pressing the "A" button in front of the bed. The meteor can wait until the morning. The next day, Gramps and sis join the protagonist and hatch out a plan to stop the impending arrival of the meteor. Access the computer to check out the latest assignments in the "Hataraku Help Wanted" section where players can earn money by playing mini-games. Three assignments are available which pay out a maximum of JPY6500, JPY8000, and JPY8000. Your performance may yield much less than those amounts.

» The first game is a carrot plucking exercise where an entire row of carrots must be pulled from the ground. You can't just mindlessly pull however. You'll have to watch the gauge on the upper left corner of the screen. When the little indicator spins into the orange zone of the gauge, that's when you're supposed to flick the Wii Remote upwards. If you flick it at any other time, you'll pull up nothing by the tops of the carrots.

» The second mini-game makes use of the Nunchuk analog pad and the Z button where you're supposed to deliver packages to anxious recipients without getting the parcels wet from the sprinklers. You're also supposed to avoid barking dogs and step around the flower beds.

» The third mini-game is a fishing expedition where players commandeer a boat with the Nunchuk and cast a net with the Wii Remote. Schools of fish appear underwater and your job is to cast the net directly above the moving fish to grab as many as possible within the time limit.

» Each mini-game takes an entire day to complete so time is precious and successful maneuvering of the Wii Remote is integral to saving the planet.
