GOOOAAALLLLL


Nintendo consoles have a long history of offering a variety of games tailored towards a local multiplayer experience. However, with the option to have online play many developers simply choose to ignore the potential of a local only multiplayer party game. TOO DX set out to capture the excitement of gaming in the same room as friends with

Goodbye Galaxy Games


Our Indie Spotlight has highlighted developers who have released highly praised games, but typically only have one on the eShop. Having released several games on both the DSi Shop and 3DS eShop, Goodbye Galaxy Games is a fitting addition to round out our giveaway. With a total of six games, four on DSiWare, two on the 3DS eShop, this team is no stranger to Nintendo handheld platforms.

It's A Toss Up


TOSS N GO is the latest release by active developer RCMADIAX, who now has released half a dozen eShop games in less than a year. It is well known that with short development times comes simplistic games, however RCMADIAX's games have always been fun to play, at least...

Image & Form


Like so many of the other developers we have featured on our Indie Dev of the Day, the developers, sometimes against all odds have dug their way to the top. Image and Form did that quite literally with Steamworld Dig, their claim to fame hit that is now available on many different platforms such as Nintendo 3DS & Wii U, and Steam.

Back in 2012, coming off of their...

A Cut Below the Rest


There aren't very many haircut simulators available for purchase due to the fact that it never quite mirrors the feel of cutting actual hair. Swiping a stylus across the screen isn't even close to that of holding a pair of scissors or comb, yet this hasn't stopped developer Cypronia from trying to bring the joy of the barbershop to the 3DS eShop.

Drowning in Rotten Fishies


The Nintendo eShop can truly be a wonderful place, as it allows developers to release a myriad of creative games to millions of consumers with relatively low risk. Unfortunately, the eShop also allows quite the opposite to happen, with a increasing number of low quality games sneaking by quality control and vying for digital shelf space with truly amazing games. These...

Worldwide Shortages Lead Consumers to Panic


Around the internet as of late, there have been many questions concerning Amiibos, specifically surrounding the shortages of popular Nintendo characters. These concerns come with good reason, as Nintendo has failed to produce enough figures of some characters to meet the demand of consumers, mainly with Villager; Wii Fit Trainer and Marth. Nintendo...

You Won't Need to Block These Pop-Ups


           Do you remember those pop-up story book your parents would read you as a child? Well, apparently the developers at Nyamyam did, and they created Tengami as a result. Does Tengami hold that wonderful...

The Finals are Upon us!


It's been a long road, ladies and gentlemen. Throughout 4 qualifer votes and two more semifinals, you've narrowed the choice for best Mario Kart down one by one. In one corner, we have the much beloved Mario Kart Double Dash!! of the Gamecube era. In the challenger's corner we have Mario Kart 8, coming strong out of the gate despite the Wii U's low install base.

Five Levels of Hell



           There is an ongoing debate on what the difficulty level of a video game should be. Some prefer easy games they can relax to, others prefer games with the option of different levels of difficulty, and some believe many games should force you to...

Y Can't Xeodrifter Crawl?


Metroid is a series many gamers hold close to their hearts despite its being over two decades old. Among the many games Metroid has inspired over the years, none have quite managed to reach the pinnacle of success which Nintendo created for Samus Aran. However, a new challenger approaches, in form of

Match 3 puzzle games aren't likely to spring to mind when you hear the name Safari Quest, yet this is exactly what publisher Maximum Games has brought us. When you hear Match 3 puzzle games, you may remember that the eShop is loaded with...

All Your Amiibo are Belong to us


Amiibo have been out in stores for a short period of time already, yet all consumers aren't sure of what exactly an Amiibo does. In a recent survey we've been running with hundreds of individuals on a general gaming website, well over 60% replied that they simply didn't know what an Amiibo was. This is problematic for Nintendo. Their potential buyers are simply...

Painting is fun, Right?


The process of digitally drawing a picture has been around since some of the first computers were around years ago, though it was in a simple yet fun package that users could access software such as Microsoft Paint. Over the years, the process has been taken to new levels and new platforms, with even Smartphones having fun drawing diversions available for free. Eariler the...

We Kid You Not

After the upcoming conclusion of our Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS tournament, we've decided to launch another 1v1 tournament; this time we've chosen the 3DS hit Kid Icarus Uprising.

While the game is a few years old, it is one which is fondly remembered by many 3DS owners. It was developed mainly by Masahiro Sakurai, who also leads the Smash Bros. series development, and the comepetitive side of Smash Bros. worked its way into Kid Icarus as well once he took over.

Your top four titles then moved on to the Semifinals, where we recently pit Mario Kart 64 against Mario Kart Double Dash!!

Raise the Roof in Style


Nintendo systems have been graced by a wide variety of video game genres, from the increasingly common platformer to puzzle games and about every type of sports imagineable, but if one underrated genre was chosen from Nintendo's library it might just be the category of simulation mixed with management and expansion. Quite an odd genre, however,

Beginner's Blitzkrieg




Castle Conqueror may be a franchise familiar to gamers by name alone. There have been numerous entries into the series, both on the DS and 3DS platform, and it would be easy to presume these titles were sequels to each other, just an expansion pack of the original release with a new feature here, more levels there, etc. However, one would be wrong, as Castle Conqueror Revolution...

Looks a lot better on Paper


Ballpoint Universe: Infinite is one of the most unique games to hit the Wii U eShop yet, most noticeably in its hand drawn, completely inked art style which sets it apart from every other title on the digital platform. Another rather unique feature of the game is the slightly odd combination of Platforming and Side-Scrolling Shooting, though the penmanship on the gameplay...

A Booming Success




To say Sega wasn't counting on Sonic Boom this holiday season is to say Nintendo isn't counting on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U to shift millions of units. With two upcoming video games, Archie Comics running Sonic Boom comics, action figures and the new TV show, the Sega's investors and higher ups are hoping that this gamble with the Sonic brand will...

Guide Your Cube to Safety


PING 1.5+ is another in the long line of Indie games being released on the Wii U eShop, but manages to bring a more unique approach in gaming to the table than some of its competition. PING 1.5+ is, in essence, a puzzle game adaptation of classic arcade game PONG, though one with hard as nails gameplay.

In PING 1.5+, you control a cube who goes to war with...
