    Review Shift DX

    As simple as black and white

    The Shift series has been around since 2008, when the first Shift title debuted as a Flash game. Four mainline games have released since then, with the first two receiving iOS ports as well. Shift DX collects all the levels from the first two games and introduces 100 more to the 3DS; we consider whether this is a treat...

    Review Geki Yaba Runner Deluxe

    Run, run, Gnomey

    As smartphone gaming has become so popular, the runner genre has seemingly reached the popularity levels of the 2D platformer and first-person shooter before it. The latest title of the genre to grace the 3DS eShop is Geki Yaba Runner Deluxe. It's apparently titled Deluxe due to its presence as a mobile game on Android and iOS; on...

  • Feature The Nindie Christmas Celebration - Pocket Card Jockey


    If there was ever a game to represent this most cruel, brilliant, and baffling of years, Pocket Card Jockey is it. Game Freak's most recent non-Pokémon venture makes little sense: You're a horseracing jockey, but really you're a Solitaire player... but really you're an animal husbandry novice. That this strange brew of strategy, quick...

The video contains music from Vectorwolf, a band which has licensed some of its songs to appear in the game - including Night Chase, which is the tune...

  • News Mini Golf Resort Will Bring Serious Sport to 3DS on 22nd December

    Fore (because Golf, see?) dollars and 99 cents in the US

    There are some key genres that largely skip Nintendo hardware - sports games are certainly in that mix. But fear not, 3DS fans, as Mini Golf Resort will help to scratch that itch soon - it's coming out on 22nd December in North America ($4.99 in the US), and is aiming for Europe in early 2017...

    Review Unlucky Mage

    Ill-fated Illusionist

    From Dragon Quests and Shin Megami Tenseis to Pokémon and Fire Emblems, the 3DS is an RPG powerhouse. It's a testament to the eShop's offerings, however, that those famous names are flanked by a flurry of mid-tier RPGs of every persuasion, some of which are certainly worthy of your time. Kemco has been a prolific publisher in...

    Review Ninja Usagimaru - The Mysterious Karakuri Castle

    Mysterious indeed

    Any American high school student who's owned a TI series calculator and endured hours of math classes has no doubt discovered Block Dude. The simple puzzle platformer was centered around escaping from rooms by moving around a limited number of blocks, and presented a wonderful escape from the dreariness of algebra. Evidently, the...
