    ^ That.

    We may get some sort of clone but that would depend on whether someone wants to spend a at least a year of their life to get it done only to have to stop what they're doing because Popcap sent their lawyers after them.

    More likely that Popcap will port it to WiiWare.

    Its a brand new game. Try contacting popcap games asking for a port to wiiware.

    Maybe if we had a mature port of linux with 3d acceleration it could be played through WINE(if the Wii even has enough power). But, until then asking for a port from Popcap is the only way we're getting it.

    This is one hell of a frustrating game lol

    Installed it on PC and thought I'd waste 10 minutes or so.....2 hours later!
