Review: Steamworld Dig (Wii U eShop)

Digging Its Way to the Top

Steamworld Dig, as you may know, is a game that was released last year on the 3DS eShop. However, it was later released on Wii U, PS4, PS Vita and PC. It's available for $9.99 in the US, and £6.99/€7.99 in the UK/Europe. But does it really live up to that price?

Steamworld Dig starts out with a miner named Rusty walking into Tumbleton. When suddenly, the ground beneath …

Review - Teslagrad (Wii U eShop)
Sun Sep 21, 2014 2:45 pm by Dash

Shockingly Attractive

    If you aren’t a PC gamer, or haven’t been keeping up with gaming news too much, you may be unaware of the 2D puzzle platformer Teslagrad from Rain Games. Teslagrad originally came out for Steam way back in December, and it’s been delayed for the Wii U eShop a few times since then, but has the 10 month long wait been worth it?

    You start the game off with the title screen transitioning into the very beginning of the story. A man carries a baby boy to …

This is the atmosphere Raylight Studios tried to create with Outback Pet Rescue 3D, but did they manage to hit the …

Alph From Pikmin 3 Confirmed as an Alternate Skin in Smash Bros.
Thu Sep 11, 2014 3:49 am by Knuckles
Smashing Developments

Editors Note: Alph is not actually a seperate character, but rather a costume for Olimar. They play the same and are not seperate characters. Here is the article in its original form:

Nintendo has previously announced an 8 hour twitch stream for Friday, September 12th, and promised to show off the final build of Smash Bros 3DS while they are at it. It would have been a safe guess to presume Sakurai might just continue to tease us with images of the menus, but Nintendo is known for not being conventional.

Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS Demo Launches in Japan
Wed Sep 10, 2014 3:48 am by Knuckles
Those Lucky Japanese...

Sakurai's latest Post of the Day on Miiverse might have been a shocker if you hadn't been following your Super Smash Bros. news on September 9th. About six hours before Sakurai's PotD, the first stories were breaking of Japan having a demo for the upcoming game.

The Demo contains several of the menu screens Mr. Sakurai has been recently revealing in his updates, with five brawlers being available to battle with, but the starting roster is rather large. According to Sakurai, there is only one stage available to battle on, Battlefield. …

Review: Tappingo 2 (3DS eShop)
Tue Sep 09, 2014 7:44 pm by Professor Clayton
Pixel Puzzle Perfection

Released earlier this year, the original Tappingo delivered a streamlined, yet addicitve, fun puzzle game for 3DS owners at a budget price. Quickly attempting to replicate the success original, Goodbye Galaxy Games developed and released Tappingo 2; a sequel of sorts, one which offers more of what made the original great along with some minor improvements.

A puzzle game is nothing without a clever or addiciting idea, and Tappingo 2 certainly isn't lacking in either department. With an oh so simple flick of your …
