Spot the indifference

Greetings, fans of two-pictures-that-are-seemingly-identical-but-are-actually-slightly-different-to-one-another! Aahh! Spot the Difference is here to make you happy people indeed — as long as you don't mind the fact that it's short, bland and totally forgettable, that is.

NES comes to 3DS

3DS gets a demo and two Virtual Console games this week while Wii owners are left sadly without. Still, there's plenty of Virtual Console games coming to Wii in March, so that's something. 3DS Virtual Console: Punch-Out!! (NES, Nintendo, £4.50/€5) — The classic boxing game is the first non-Ambassador NES game to reach 3DS...

Successfully Learning Mathematics: Year 4 (DSiWare)

Successfully Testing Mathematics

The Successfully Learning series from Tivola has, it its own way, become the most prolific franchise on DSiWare. That’s not necessarily surprising considering there's a range of subjects to cover, and we’ve now reached Successfully Learning Mathematics: Year 4. It’s edutainment with Freddy the Vampire, so we...

Review: Box Pusher (DSiWare)

Box Pusher (DSiWare)

You certainly can't claim false advertising

So far, GameOn has made its name on DSiWare with simple games executed well. Box Pusher does nothing to buck that trend, offering a gaming experience that manages to be both vast and shallow, but what this game lacks in personality it easily makes up for with its strong and clever central conceit. Box...

DSiWare: Box Pusher (GameOn, 500pts) — You're the box pusher. Pushing boxes is what you do, and you do it well. In fact, you're the greatest box pusher this town's ever seen. Make and share...

The multiplayer is the real difference

Fans of spot-the-difference puzzles will know exactly what to expect from EnjoyUp Games' latest release, iSpot Japan.

Strider is here!

Update: Looks like this is the full list, dudes and dudettes. 3DS Virtual Console: Super Mario Bros. (NES, $4.99) — Yes, the earlier 3DS Ambassador update was just a prelude to Nintendo releasing Super Mario Bros. on 3DS for non-Ambassadors. Do you really need a review to know if this is worth getting? We'll write one anyway.

Gamelion's I Must Run! is Racing to DSiWare

It's not alone

One of the most self-explanatory game names you could ask for, in I Must Run! you must run. Gamelion's skyscraper scamper has already been released on PlayStation Minis and mobile phones but is coming to DSiWare in the near future. If you've played Canabalt you'll have a fairly good idea what to expect, though I Must Run! includes a...

Flipper developer Goodbye Galaxy Games is behind the maths-based puzzle platformer, which promises multiple mathematical...

Megamixes, burgers and Maru's Mission

A relatively quiet download this week, with just three titles on offer, one of which came from absolutely nowhere. 3DS Virtual Console: Maru's Mission (Game Boy, Hamster Corporation, $2.99) — Here's a title you don't hear of very often. A side-scrolling action platformer — what else? — Maru's Mission puts...

GO Series: Undead Storm (DSiWare)

Frighteningly good

To date, the GO Series has been a bit of a mixed bag, ranging from the disappointingly average GO Series: Pinball Attack! to the brilliant dungeon-crawling puzzler PicDun. As such, it's understandable that one might be sceptical of the latest title in the series, GO Series: Undead Storm. We're pleased to report, though, that...
