press the home button on the pad. go to adjustments (or settings or something similar) on the top right corner. one of the options is screen brightness.

It can play wii games on the gamepad! The gamepad even has a sensor bar to point at. Playing games like skyward sword, xenoblade chronicles, metroid prime trilogy, mario galaxy, etc without a tv is so cool!


Um....its really only Xenoblade.

Skyward Sword, Metroid Prime Trilogy, and Mario Galaxy all require the Wii Remotes to play the game meaning you would have to prop up the Gamepad onto something aim the Wiimotes like a crazy person within like 2 feet of the screen in order to see anything or get a connection. Not a very comfortable scenario. Only Xenoblade allows you to play using the Gamepad controls.


Are there any other games like Xenoblade that can be played on the gamepad like that? I got Metroid and Galaxy not realizing I needed to use the Wii Remotes, which took the excitement away.


The only other Wii games on the eshop that can actually use the gamepad's buttons to play are:

-Sin & Punishment: Star Successor
-Pandora's Tower
-Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition (MAYBE for this one, I've never been able to find a clear answer about the eshop version supporting the gamepad, I've heard it both ways)

For the heck of it, here are some notable Wii titles that would be compatible with exclusive use of the gamepad, should they ever appear on the eshop (it's not looking likely that many, if any, more are going to be released though, as it's all about the Switch now):

Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Mario Kart Wii
Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil
Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil Zero
Opoona
Monster Hunter Tri
No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle
The Last Story
Klonoa
Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition
Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
A Boy and His Blob
A friend of mine thought that he had an NES toploader, until I informed him that it was a Super NES.

Afraid not, because the game REQUIRES you to point the Wii remote at the screen to make menu selections; no way around it.

i really wish that the gamepad could have doubled as a pro controller when in wii mode, would have been great for all the VC like chrono trigger which never made it to the wiiu VC (chrono trigger wasnt on the snes classic either which makes it seem like something is going on regarding the liscencing to that game, which makes me less than optimistic of seeing it on switch VC if switch every gets a VC)
