Family Fishing Will Aim to Lure You in on the 3DS eShop

Throw smoke bombs, like all families on fishing trips

There are a surprising number of fishing games available across Nintendo systems, with multiple examples on WiiWare and 3DS. They must be popular releases as, otherwise, developers wouldn't go out of their way to create and release the games; it sure beats wading around at a real lake, right?...

Review: Wizdom (3DS eShop)

Wizdom (3DS eShop)

A magical concoction

What do you get when you cross Cooking Mama with a match-three puzzle game? Something arguably more fun than either of those, actually. Wizdom is the latest title from publisher Moving Player, and it benefits from a similar presentational charm its last title - Rakoo and Friends - is known for. The premise of Wizdom is simple:...

Review: The Magic Hammer (3DS eShop)

The Magic Hammer (3DS eShop)

It sure isn't Mjölnir

Setting off on an adventure which transcends various realms beyond your own. Taking a magic, talking hammer in hand by which to slay the undead, and rebuild a broken mess of a world.

It's the start of another week, but Nintendo fans in Europe at least have the download update to cheer their spirits. This week's edition seems to be a bit of a doozy, in fairness, with a mix of in-demand titles across both Wii U and - notably - the New Nintendo 3DS / 3DS; on...

Review: Gunslugs 2 (3DS eShop)

Gunslugs 2 (3DS eShop)

Get to the chopper!

Gunslugs 2 goes right for your sense of nostalgia for dumb '80s action movies; we mean dumb in the best possible sense, in terms of those movies with muscle-bound heroes shooting everything and causing enormous explosions. If you're too young to remember that era then, our sympathies, but you can watch The Expendables and imagine...
