Review: G.G Series THROW OUT (DSiWare)

G.G Series THROW OUT (DSiWare)

​Throw this one out

We return to the G.G series with the sports genre, this time looking at a soccer game with combative elements reminiscent of the Mario Strikers series. It somewhat succeeds in this attempt, but matches are seldom challenging and consequently feel dull. While the game mechanics themselves are solid enough, one can't help but...

Review: G.G Series THE LAST KNIGHT (DSiWare)

G.G Series THE LAST KNIGHT (DSiWare)

Hopefully this really is the last knight

The G.G series has grown a great deal in recent weeks, and another addition is an action adventure game that bears more than a passing resemblance to dungeons from The Legend of Zelda. Unfortunately, G.G Series THE LAST KNIGHT doesn't hold any of the same magic and fails to deliver entertainment that has much...

Review: G.G Series VERTEX (DSiWare)

G.G Series VERTEX (DSiWare)

A bit too one dimensional

The next game in the G.G series is here, and this one is yet another unique take on the puzzler genre. While G.G Series VERTEX starts out strong with an interesting shooter-puzzler hybrid, it quickly peters out when this concept fails to develop into anything further. Pair this with lacklustre visual and sound design, and...

Review: G.G Series RUN & STRIKE (DSiWare)

G.G Series RUN & STRIKE (DSiWare)

Double fault

The next entry in the G.G series opts to branch out a bit and little something in the sports genre. While this works relatively well initially, the novelty of the gameplay soon wears off and it quickly becomes rather boring. G.G Series RUN & STRIKE is a decent arcade game, but players looking for anything more will be sorely...

Nintendo Download: 16th July (North America)

16th July (North America)

Tiny Galaxy, airport management, Blaster Master, G.G Series and more

Following the passing of Satoru Iwata earlier this week Nintendo isn't actively issuing press releases at the time of writing; as a result the following is based upon checking the eShop stores. We have a promising Nindie effort on Wii U, a couple of quirky efforts on 3DS, more G.G...

Review: G.G Series DRILLING ATTACK!! (DSiWare)

G.G Series DRILLING ATTACK!! (DSiWare)

Rock solid

The next title to look at in the G.G series is yet another action platformer, but it manages to feel distinct from the others in more ways than one. Unlike every G.G game up to this point, G.G Series DRILLING ATTACK!! focuses less on being an arcade-focused game best suited for quick playthroughs, and more on being an experience that...

Review: G.G Series THE HIDDEN NINJA KAGEMARU (DSiWare)

G.G Series THE HIDDEN NINJA KAGEMARU (DSiWare)

The way of the ninja

The next game in the G.G series opts to return to the platformer genre yet again, and the end result is surprisingly engaging. G.G Series THE HIDDEN NINJA KAGEMARU is a unique arcade focused, 2D stealth platformer that manages to put forth a distinct and compelling gameplay system that'll keep gamers coming back again and again...

Review: G.G Series ALL BREAKER (DSiWare)

G.G Series ALL BREAKER (DSiWare)

Are you worthy of the hammer?

We have another title in the G.G series to consider, and this one opts to go back to action platformer roots. However, G.G Series ALL BREAKER focuses on including puzzle elements into the mix alongside the oddly compelling, melee-centric action. The end result is an engaging experience that'll keep challenging both your...

Review: G.G Series GREAT WHIP ADVENTURE (DSiWare)

G.G Series GREAT WHIP ADVENTURE (DSiWare)

I hate snakes, Jock! I hate 'em!

The G.G series continues onward, and once again goes back to the platformer genre. G.G Series GREAT WHIP ADVENTURE does its best to provide gamers with a compact action platformer, and it largely succeeds in achieving this goal. While it may seem a bit derivative at times, the solid platforming action on offer here...

Review: G.G Series SHADOW ARMY (DSiWare)

G.G Series SHADOW ARMY (DSiWare)

Bob and weave

The next title in the G.G series opts to go once again into the shooter genre, and the interesting gameplay manages to set G.G Series SHADOW ARMY apart from its predecessors in a meaningful way. While some aspects of it may be dull and somewhat uninspired, the continuously variable and fast paced nature of its gunplay make it an...

Review: G.G Series EXCITING RIVER (DSiWare)

G.G Series EXCITING RIVER (DSiWare)

A quick trip through choppy waters

The G.G Series continues rolling forward with its seemingly endless number of releases, and this time it's branching out into light racing territory. True to the identity of the series that it's coming from, G.G Series EXCITING RIVER offers a barebones yet enjoyable arcade game that shows its value not through its...

Review: G.G Series CONVEYOR TOY PACKING (DSiWare)

G.G Series CONVEYOR TOY PACKING (DSiWare)

Fresh off the conveyor belt

Packing away hundreds of toys rolling off of a factory conveyor belt, who hasn't had that dream? The next title in the G.G series is another falling block puzzler, and while it presents a unique and enjoyable type of gameplay, it's impeded somewhat by some suppressive game mechanics and an uninspired soundtrack. That...

Review: G.G Series BLACK X BLOCK (DSiWare)

G.G Series BLACK X BLOCK (DSiWare)

Block Dude 2.0

Another entry in the G.G series has arrived, and anybody who's owned a TI series calculator and spent a lengthy amount of time in a high school math class will immediately feel at home with the type of gameplay here. Indeed, the premise of G.G Series BLACK X BLOCK feels like a successor of sorts to the cult classic, Block Dude, and it...

Review: G.G Series ALTERED WEAPON (DSiWare)

G.G Series ALTERED WEAPON (DSiWare)

​More than meets the eye

Short, sweet, and to the point. That's the phrase that best describes most games in the G.G series and G.G Series ALTERED WEAPON is no different - it offers an interesting and enjoyable gameplay experience that's over just about as quickly as it's begun. While it would be nice if there was a bit more meat to it, what is...

Review: G.G Series ASSAULT BUSTER (DSiWare)

G.G Series ASSAULT BUSTER (DSiWare)

Mega Buster

The G.G series keeps on going, and next up is another shoot 'em up; yet this one presents a unique and dynamic combat system that's surprisingly engaging. In an experimental series that's pretty hit or miss depending on the genre being attempted, G.G Series ASSAULT BUSTER provides a fun, arcade style shooter that's easily the most...

Review: G.G Series COSMO RALLY!! (DSiWare)

G.G Series COSMO RALLY!! (DSiWare)

Get ready to activate your G-diffusers

This particular title in the G.G Series seems to have been inspired by a certain other futuristic racer, and while it presents an admirable take on the concept of high speed and interstellar racing, its lack of diverse content holds it back from being particularly memorable. That being said, G.G Series COSMO...

Review: G.G Series HERO PUZZLE (DSiWare)

G.G Series HERO PUZZLE (DSiWare)

​A long journey

The G.G Series aims to provide players with quick arcade experiences on their DS systems at a low price point, and it experiments with a wide variety of genres to achieve this goal. Some of these genres are a better fit than others and this results in a somewhat unpredictable line of games that's a collection of highs and lows...

Review: G.G Series WONDERLAND (DSiWare)

G.G Series WONDERLAND (DSiWare)

​We're all mad here

It's not often that a new DSiWare game shows up on the eShop, as that particular line of software is on the brink of extinction. Imagine, then, the shock when the G.G Series made its return to the service when Genterprise chose to localise the remaining games in the series. G.G Series WONDERLAND marked the beginning of the...

Review: G.G Series THE SPIKY BLOWFISH!! (DSiWare)

G.G Series THE SPIKY BLOWFISH!! (DSiWare)

​Under the sea

DSiWare is admittedly a pretty hit or miss service, with games on it typically being forgettable mini-games and otherwise unexceptional apps. The G.G series does a remarkable job of providing decent quality arcade experiences, and the next game in the long list of titles in this series is no different. G.G Series THE SPIKY...

There Are Now Over 600 DSiWare Games And Apps

Not dead yet

The 3DS may be entering its twilight years but that doesn't mean that DSiWare - the downloadable software service which launched with the 3DS console's forerunner, the DSi - is completely dead. In fact, thanks to the large helping of DSiWare games in this week's Download Update, there are now 604 games and apps available for DSiWare...
