Wii Play is a simple collection of Mini-games designed to introduce you to the Wii-motes functionality. The title has a total of nine mini-games, each showcasing a slightly different use for the Wii-mote. All the titles focus around the pointing mechanism for the Wiimote as pointing is an integral part of each game's play mechanic. The game includes a Wiimote and is priced at around $50, making it a reasonable alternative to buying a Wiimote separately.
Shooting Range is a duck hunt style mini which uses the Wii-mote as a pointer. Shoot the targets to earn points, while avoiding targets with your Mii's face on it.
Laser Hockey also uses the pointer to control your on screen paddle, but you can control the paddles tilt by tilting the Wii-mote.
Table Tennis lets you flick the Wii-mote in order to volley the ball back and forth during your game of Ping Pong.
Billiards lets you play some virtual pool. Just select the spot of the ball you want to hit with the pointer, hold B, and motion backwards then forwards to send the ball on its way.
Tanks! lets you control a little toy tank as you seek to destroy all of the enemies on the board. This is the only mini that lets you use the nunchuck, but its not needed. The pointer is used to line up your shot while the D-pad (or joystick if you use the nunchuck) controls the tank.
Pose Mii requires you to move your Mii to falling bubbles using the Wii Remote pointer. Through a combination of rotating and pointing, you must make the Mii "line up" to the bubble.
Find Mii gives you the seemingly simple task of locating you Mii in a crowd. Mii Pose tasks you with positioning you Mii in the correct spot with the correct pose to pop bubble before they reach the bottom of the screen.
Fishing lets you flick the remote like a fishing rod to land the magic fish in a little pond.
Charge! has you holding the Wii-mote sideways (retro style), tilting left and right to control your racing cow (?).
