Nintendo's latest game downloads give new meaning to the word spring cleaning. 

Spring cleaning is a lot more enjoyable with the latest downloadable game offerings from Nintendo. Instead of sprucing up your home, you’re invited to dispose of supernatural enemies and unusual messes, and the only cleanup tools you’ll need are your Wii™ or Nintendo DSi™ systems. In Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords for the Nintendo DSiWare™ service, you’ll need to wipe away an undead menace that threatens to destroy their kingdom. In Overflow, now available for the WiiWare™ service, your task is to clean up a colorful but dangerous fuel spill. Some of the action in these games may get messy, but you’ve got everything it takes to restore order.
