Homeschooling may be a Better Choice


Treva Entertainment releases a lot of animal simulation titles on the 3DS eShop, one of which was the not so lovely Outback Pet Rescue 3D. The title had a significant number of shortcomings, and offered plenty of room for improvement with this new release. Unfortunately for anyone looking for a pet training simulator, you'd be better off training your...

Mario, Zelda, Just Dance, Lego and More


Like last year, Nintendo is having an E3 Summer Sale.This is Nintendo's biggest sale of the year, up to 30% off certain titles. The games in question are from the Mario, Zelda, Yoshi, Just Dance, and Lego franchises, along with a few excellent random 3DS games....

Please Understand


E3 2014 was amazing for Nintendo last year. Filled with three excellent days of live streaming content courtesy of the Nintendo Treehouse, the announcement of Splatoon, the amazing Super Smash Bros. Invitational, the first Legend of Zelda Wii U trailer, those were just the highlights. For many fans, the hype from last years' event lead to high expectations for E3 2015, and sadly, Nintendo just couldn't...

Be Careful Not To Rip Or Tear




           Simple and relaxing puzzle games have always been a big seller on Nintendo consoles, which is certainly not a bad thing. KAMI (or “Paper,” if you want a translation) brings its own puzzling aspect to the 3DS’s eShop, and it has some Japan-styled aspects to it. However, is it too shallow...

A Funny thing Happened along the Way to the Citadel


8-bit retro inspired platformers are a staple of Indie Gaming for a couple of reasons. These games do not require high quality graphics, thus making them easier to make. There is also an audience of gamers who are nostalgic for a simpler time before big budgeted, ultra realistic games began to dominate the market. Zombie Incident, a port...

3DS Minecra... nevermine, it's still on alpha



Being the worldwide phenomenon and smash hit that it is, Minecraft has sold millions of copies across all platforms of the current generation, expect for Nintendo’s that is. And with Microsoft having bought the rights to the game, the chances...

Recipe for Success


Circle Entertainment has brought a number of titles to the 3DS eShop, the latest of which is an RPG that goes by Adventure Bar Story. And much like its title suggests, this game is made up of largely adventuring, running a bar (more like a restaurant though) and the story which surrounds the main character, Siela.

Adventure Bar Story throws you into the gameplay...

Not So Dynamite


Johnny Dynamite is a puzzle game made by Twofivesix, and published by Enjoy Gaming. Their games have had mixed to negative reception with one of their more known series being Pyramids. Johnny Dynamite doesn’t shoot across the sky and leave players in awe, awe, awe, but it isn’t a dud either.

The main objective of the game is to collect all of the dynamite sticks in...

Barrels of Fun


Looks can be deceiving, and Puzzle Monkeys by Log Games is a prime example of this phenomenon. What appears at first sight to be an early 2000's flash game is actually a pretty darn fun puzzle game. By drawing inspiration from a handful of old-time puzzlers, as well as incorporating new ideas, Puzzle Monkeys is one book that you can't judge by its cover.

As any classic...

Hope U can Spell Well


Oftentimes simple and creative ideas can grow into a largely successful franchise by taking these simple ideas and expanding on them. ChudChud Industries attempts to follow this formula by combing the common skill of spelling with reaction time in their title, uWordsmith. While the idea is sound in premise, is it able to hold up despite being a relatively small title on...

Quest II: The Adventure of Elliot


The HTML5 support for Wii U is far from an underused feature available to developers, but few games as good as Elliot Quest seem to rise from the Nintendo Web Framework. Ansimuz Games' title, which was ported to the eShop by PlayEveryWare, is a charming old-school sidescroller which looks back to the days of the NES for inspiration. While drawing creativity from the joy provided from...

Party Like it's 1979


Titan Attacks is a game made by Puppy Games and ported by Curve Digital. This game was inspired by the Space Invaders, Galaga, and retro arcade space shooters of the late 70s to early 80s. Beginning its life on the PC in 2006, the game was ported to the Vita, PS4, and Xbox One in May of last year. 10 months later, the game has finally arrived on the 3DS. Is Titan...

A Flash Of Crazy


There have been a number of games on the Wii U with a focus on local and asymmetrical multiplayer over the last few years. From launch title Nintendo Land, to Game and Wario, Chariot… and so on. Among this variety of experiences, we have Paparazzi, a budget title with relatively...

Brings Life Back to a Decaying Idea


Let's face it, zombies have been overused beyond any tolerable point throughout the past ten years. This fad, which began with good intentions, began becoming a cop-out for lazy developers and simply decayed over time. While the topic of the undead in videogames is rotting away, Undead Storm Nightmare manages to use it in a way that doesn't make you want to...

There is No Hope, No Excape




Excave is a dungeon crawler RPG made by Mechanical Arms and Published by Teyon, a developer with a very hit and miss library. While Steel Empire and Bird Mania have earned praise, they have also had their hand in critically bashed games such as Rambo and Hubert the Bear, as well as many other forgettable and average titles. Which leads to the question,...

Two Flaps Too Many


Just like Minecraft, Flappy Bird had inspired many clones. Flap Flap is almost a Flappy Bird DX, an improvement upon the original with the addition of enemies and items. However, do these additions weigh down the entire experience?

For those unfamiliar with...

Electric Guitar on the Go


When was the last time you saw someone casually carrying around an electric guitar? While a budding musician would benefit from practicing their craft on the go, it simply isn't worth the hassle of lugging around a guitar, even without an amp. This is where Music On: Electric Guitar largely succeeds, as it provides a quick and painless way for musicians to strum away...

Try Breezing Through This




           Many recent puzzle games have taken a deceptively simple concept and found a unique way of challenging gamers in a way that is both difficult but still captivating. BreezeBlox implements one such interesting concept, but don’t let its simplicity mislead you.

Puzzlingly Perfunctory



           Some games in the eShop these days have taken a new twist on a classic formula, or add something new to a classic game that makes it all the more interesting and enjoyable. Maze is a first person maze game on the Wii U, but has Treefall Studios truly made a fun and unique puzzle game, or is it better...

Stacked Like Any Other






           Ah, Mahjong. It’s a traditional Chinese puzzle game with some planning and skill involved that’s been around for millennia. More recently, it’s become popular for many to try their hand at the game on computers, and it’s in this way that many have experienced the game. Best of Mahjong...

Needs to Fly South For the Winter


Flappy Bird inspired games, clones, and anything else related to the original game have all had the same issues as the original. Beyond the simplicity of the core concept on hand, each title has failed to bring any real personality or new features to the gameplay, which results in a quickly stale concept. Most of these games exist seemingly for no real reason other...

The Begining of An Era


In a surprising announcement today, Nintendo has revealed their plans to take the Smart Device Market by storm. Stockholders have been asking for this for years, and Nintendo finally has answered their pleas by partnering with DeNA as a publisher. Nintendo plans on making new games using existing IPs, and not straight up ports.

Not Very Wreck-a-Mended


Racing games have been a prolific genre in the ever changing world of video games since the beginning of arcade machines. While racing titles have been ever present, there have been many different takes on them, one of which was Ivan 'Ironman' Stewart's Super Off Road for the NES, the title which Rock 'N Racing Off Road is heavily inspired by. Unfortunately the modern day take...

A Shot Way Off Target


Soccer Up Online is a game with a simple task- to let you and your friends play a game of European Football over the internet. Amazingly, this title manages to stumble at nearly every chance possible, with nothing working like it should, leaving behind a disappointing product.

Soccer isn't a complicated sport, at least it shouldn't be if tacked in its simplest...

Collavier Corporation, developer of Painting Workshop, is no stranger to the world of art apps, as they released the similarly titled Comic Workshop (which we thought was a great comic drawing app) on the digital store late last year. Though...
