Rain Games

We have shined a pixelated spotlight on the developers of eShop hits such as Armillo, Guacamelee, Stick it to the Man, and many of RCMADIAX's games, and have more to come. Today's Indie Spotlight Giveaway choice doesn't need us to shine a light on them, Rain Games' hit Teslagrad does it for them. This electrifying Metriodvainia game took an extra ten months getting to the Wii U after its PC release. Teslagrad...

Everything We Know So Far

Nintendo made a bold and long awaited move with its popular franchises earlier this year, and started offering DLC for series such as Mario Kart and Smash Bros. in unique and new ways (such as amiibo compatibility). With Mario Kart 8 in particular, there has been a lot of information announced pertaining to the game which can be considered DLC, and here we've gathered...

Does it Hit the Target, Or Should You Dart Away?

    Darts Up is yet another one of the numerous budget titles on the Wii U eShop right now, which certainly isn't a bad thing. There are still ones you have to look out for, though. Will this be one that you try your hand or, you will it miss the target completely?
    Darts Up is essentially a slightly refined minigame, and this is where its problems start. To...

The Semifinals are Upon Us

Mario Kart 64 took a victory lap along with Double Dash!! and Mario Kart Wii.

Keeps From Falling Too Flat

One genre of games the Wii U eShop is filling up with is platformers, some of which nail the gameplay, and others which fall relatively flat. Mobot Studios decided to throw their hat into the ring with Paper Monsters Recut, an improved port of Paper Monsters for iOS devices, and aims to bring a visually attractive platformer that appeals to both younger and older players.

RCMADIAX is a developer who, around a year ago, you probably wouldn't have even heard of. Around Fall 2013, almost exactly a year ago, Michael Aschenbrenner formed RCMADIAX (pronounced R-C-Mad-E-Axe,) a one man development studio focused on producing Nintendo Wii U eShop titles, though only as a hobby. With goals of simply releasing a game out into the wild, RCMADIAX worked for three...

A Bewitching Good Time

Circle Entertainment, the publishers of The Legend of Dark Witch, have had a bit of a spotty record with some of their past releases on the 3DS system; though we particularly enjoyed their latest 3DS eShop game, Demon King Box. Their latest release is in the form...

Hyper Sonic Speeds

Let's make one thing clear right off the back, if endless tunnel runners aren't your thing, then this or the regular SpeedX 3D probably aren't for you. This game provides a basic experience that feels like its worth every dollar spent on it, getting exactly what you paid for, and still manages to be fun even after extended periods...

Zoink! Games

Zoink! isn’t a developer that most Nintendo gamers will recognize, but they are more than worth of being included in our Indie Spotlight Giveaway. This Swedish team is comprised of game designers, film directors, and advertisement experts; Zoink! is a well rounded group of individuals that combine their talents to make magic. After successfully making commercials...

Roll of the Dice

Poker Dice Solitare Future (which we will refer to as PDSF from now on) dropped onto the Wii U eShop earlier this year by developer RCMADIAX, who we interviewed here. After releasing the simple yet charming BLOK...

Slow and Steady Doesn't Always win the Race

Turtle Tale was previously released on the 3DS eShop earlier this year, and Saturnine Games felt it was worth their while to bring Shelldon, the platforming turtle, up to the HD screens of the Wii U. But does Turtle Tale's HD release build upon the original, or does it merely tread in the same water?

The answer is a complicated no. Most of...

Drinkbox Studios

Bunnies and Foxes and Carrots... Oh My.

As a game becomes more popular, it will doubtlessly inspire a range of spin-offs and rip-offs to be developed solely in the name of profit. Luckily, for those of us who enjoy playing the same game countless times, Cypronia has stepped up to fill the Animal Flinging genre's void with Angry Bunnies: Colossal Carrot Crusade. While it is a simple port of the...

Fuzzy Wuzzy Games

What exactly is an Indie Developer? No longer a small, independent developer who cannot find a publisher or create large scale games, the term has evolved to encompass more and more game producing teams. In recent years, the number of Indie Devs has increased to the point where the term is thrown around almost randomly, as everyone jumped onto the bandwagon. In a sense these...

Review: Amida's Path (DSiWare)

Forks on the Path

DSiWare games are becoming less and less frequent as the 3DS eShop continues to thrive, getting perhaps more support in its short life than the DSi Shop has had in its entire lifespan. A recent addition to DSiWare is Amida's Path. While this game isn't a beautiful swan song for DSiWare, it does provide a unique experience that shouldn't be completely...

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?

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?

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:
