Pokémon had better watch out
Some of you may remember Lionel City Builder 3D: Rise of the Rails, a train simulator that came to the 3DS in North America in January. We thought it was quite enjoyable in our review, giving it a recommendation, though at the time no European release date was on the cards. Fortunately, it seems as though that will be...
Hopefully the wait won't be much longer
At E3 this year, we got a chance to demo the upcoming update for Cube Creator 3D, and really liked what we saw. Among other things, Cube Creator 1.2 will be adding in local multiplayer and texture packs, which should expand on the core experience nicely. No timeframe had been given previously as to when the...
Better with friends
Cube Creator 3D launched a little over a year ago for the 3DS, in a time when Minecraft on Nintendo systems was nothing but a pipe dream. We liked the game then and we still like it now, but the development team hasn't been content to simply rest on its laurels and leave the project as is. A free update is due out for Cube...
Pulling into station
There are some strategy games that don't focus on swords or fighting, but take a slightly more realistic approach by placing players in a setting that's entirely plausible in the current day. For PC gamers, the 'Tycoon' games did this by placing players in control of a fictional amusement park or zoo or something to that effect...
Includes new environments, blocks and more
Cube Creator 3D from Big John Games is arguably one of the better Minecraft clones available on the 3DS eShop right now. If you’re located in North America you may have already experienced it. If not, perhaps now is a good time to consider downloading the title with the latest update arriving this week...
Demo has been downloaded over 260,000 times
Nintendo systems may be lacking the selling power of Minecraft, but a number of developers have been endeavouring to fill the gap. The latest to throw their hats into the ring are collaborators Big John Games and Gamers Digital, with Cube Creator 3D - it's arriving on the eShop in North America this week...
250,000 copies of the demo downloaded since December 2014

There are barrel rolls, so do one
Just before E3 this year Nintendo unveiled an impressive range of eShop trailers that announced some brand new games; one of these was Thorium Wars: Attack of the Skyfighter for the 3DS eShop, developed by 3PM Games and published by Big John Games. As a sequel to the rather good DSiWare original, there's
Sadly A-Team style doesn't let you build a chopper with tape and paper
Not too long ago we told you about Strike Force Foxx, a new title coming to the 3DS eShop from Big John Games that brings back memories of 1982 title Choplifter. Big John Games president Ken Patterson promised "over the top" 2D action, and the company has now revealed more...
Big John Games is putting the finishing touches to its next 3DS eShop game
Big John Games has revealed some details about its next 3DS eShop venture, entitled Strike Force Foxx. Described by company president Ken Patterson as an "over the top" action title which "harkens back to '80s action style television shows" like Airwolf and The A-Team,...
Due this year
Big John Games has confirmed that it's bringing a new title to the 3DS eShop later this year — Ohno Odyssey. It'll be a physics-based action puzzle title, in which you use and manipulate various power-ups and items to guide your team mates to the safety of a pod; there'll be 35 levels. The developer says that the team has "worked...

Hook, line, and sinker
Big John Games has confirmed that its next entry in its main fishing series, Big Bass Arcade: No Limit, will arrive on the North American 3DS eShop on 13th June, with a price tag of $6.99. The series has previously appeared on WiiWare and DSiWare, so makes the logical step across to Nintendo's latest handheld. There will be...
Big John Games has lifted the lid on what will be its final DSiWare release. Working Dawgs: Rivet Retriever is an action platform title which will retail for the modest sum of 200 DSi Points (or $1.99 on the 3DS eShop). The sequel to Working Dawgs: A-Maze-ing Pipes, Rivet Retriever is set across 20 different levels. Playing as Ace, you...
No height restrictions, thankfully
After its confirmation at the start of the year, Coaster Creator 3D now has a confirmed release date for the North American 3DS eShop; gamers can join the queue — candy floss in hand — ahead of its arrival on 28th February for $9.99. Rather than being a full-blown theme park simulation, this is exactly as the...
Are you tall enough to get on?
Now that the Holiday season has passed many would be forgiven for fantasizing about warmer days of summer — unless you're reading this from the southern hemisphere, in which case we hope you're enjoying the warm season. A popular pastime in the hot months of the year is heading to a theme park for some roller coaster...
Freakiness, fast gnomz, hidden objects and cake slicing
While some Nintendo Download updates, particularly in recent weeks, are full of juicy and exciting options, we're not sure that this is one of those occasions. Both DSi and 3DS are covered with a mixture of titles, but Wii is left out entirely; no, there isn't even a Neo Geo fighter to keep the...
Slot on North American starting grid confirmed
Big John Games has confirmed the North American release date for its forthcoming DSiWare racer Kart Krashers. The magical day is 27th September, with a price point of 500 DSi points. The company has also released a new trailer which features gameplay footage - you can check it out after the press...
Big John Games' Kart Krashers is speeding onto DSiWare and the 3DS eShop later this summer. Unlike many kart racers it's a single player affair; your aim is to charge through 10 courses looking for stars and smashing up any obstacles in your way. Grab enough points and you might just earn some Golden Wheels. Check out the first trailer...

The long-awaited Chrono Trigger is finally here!

The world can now start spinning again. WiiWareGabrielle's Ghostly Groove: Monster Mix (Natsume, 500pts) — Wii..

Catch-up titles and more
There are plenty of ways to ring in the new year in this Nintendo Download update, including a quality WiiWare demo, a couple of NeoGeo titles for virtual console, a portable slot machine and the newest entry in the G.G Series. Will you spend your holiday cash on any of these titles? Virtual Console: Fighter's History...
All bets are on
We've already had Fantasy Slots: Adventure Slots and Games on WiiWare, and now Big John Games is making the title portable with a DSiWare release on December 27th. With two slot machines, five bonus games and unlockable achievements this might not be a bad bet for 500 Points, but it failed to impress on the big screen as you can read in our Fantasy Slots: Adventure Slots and Games..
