    Review Art Academy: First Semester

    Paint Misbehavin'

    Much moreso than WiiWare, DSiWare has seen a significant number of non-game releases. Applications, utilities, programs...call them what you will, but they're not games, and they've not been exactly welcomed universally, either. Art Academy may well be poised to change that, not least because they've selected as their focus...

    Something for people of all ages.

    Although WiiWare and DSiWare have a lot of games left to get this year, if everything on Nintendo's list actually comes out, that doesn't mean the Virtual Console is going to suffer from it (At least not yet) - Today sees the release of two new retro games, just like last week. WiiWare gets two games as well, while DSiWare gets a single application. For most..

    Nintendo's recent confirmation of upcoming releases for the remainder of 2009 has thrown up some pleasant surprises, with Gameloft's Castle of Magic being one of the more interesting DSiWare announcements.

  • Nintendo Download Spaceballs, Shopping Carts, Poker, Street Challenges, Art and Toys (US)

    Another WiiWare boost with three new games.

    For some reason, Nintendo chose not to reveal today's releases in advance - Not only did they not put a press release on their press site, but they didn't even send one to journalists through email! We have no idea why, because this is actually a relatively solid week - Definitely not as bad as some past...

    HandyGames's CEO confirms that talks are taking place

Rygar is very different from the more well-known NES game of the..

  • News Oscar in Toyland Available in North America Next Monday

Developer Virtual Playground has now told us that the game will in fact be released next Monday, the 14th, so if you've been waiting for a platformer to hit the service, the wait is finally over! It will cost..

    Review Clubhouse Games Express: Family Favorites

    Another stripped-down retail release for DSiWare

    Nintendo seems to have a penchant for taking their DS retail releases and cutting them up into bits and selling them on the DSiWare service. So it should come as no surprise that they're at it again with this second release in the Clubhouse Games Express series. This time around, they're offering up five more classic family games for you to enjoy,..

  • Nintendo Download Rebirths, Colours, Jedi and Clubhouses (US)

    Contra and Star Wars return, and bring along two other games.

    Oh, what's the word? Ah yes - "exiguous"!

    First things first – this is not a dictionary in the traditional sense of the word. Not a single entry here comes with a definition or any usage guidelines, just a list of the equivalent words in five other languages. What we have here is more of a word bank, and sadly not a hugely in-depth one at that...

  • News Dictionary 6 in 1 Gets a Price Drop

    Now 500 DSi Points.

    Apparently quickly realising the price was a little too high at 800 points, Nintendo of Europe has already given the DSiWare application Dictionary 6 in 1 with Camera Function, released today, a price drop. When it was released less than a day ago it would've cost you 800 points just to have a very simplistic dictionary to carry with you! Thankfully, it's now a whole 300 points..

    More arcade classics for the Virtual Console and DSiWare gets the spotlight as WiiWare takes another holiday

  • Nintendo Download Contra Rebirth, Dictionary 6 in 1 (EU)

    A very underwhelming week for Europe.

    Aside from the previously announced Contra Rebirth things in Europe this week are pretty abysmal - Just one other new downloadable thing and it's another DSiWare application with highly limited use! Contra Rebirth is almost bound to be a great pick - It seems very similar to Contra III/Super Probotector on the SNES in terms of graphical style, which means..

    A colourful trip down memory lane

    Originally released as Trolls in 1992 for the Amiga, Super Nintendo and PC, Oscar in Toyland is a remake of what many consider an Amiga gaming classic. The game combines platforming with a “scavenger hunt” game mechanic which challenges the player to find a certain number of “baby Oscars” per level. The game begins with the titular character standing in a..

    Another catch-up week for North America.

    There's a fairly diverse offer of new games this week - An adventure game, a party game, an RPG and a puzzler. All of them are also catch-up games - Europe has already had 3 of them on VC/WiiWare/DSiWare for a few weeks, while the final game was already released on PC two weeks ago. At least they're finally...

  • News DSiWare Going to Bullet Hell Soon

    Nintendo is about to make shmups fans very happy.

    You don't normally associate Nintendo with anything that has "Bullet Hell" in the same sentence, but that's exactly what Nintendo is about to unleash on the Japanese DSiWare service.

    Another WiiWare holiday, but a few VC games and some DSiWare makes up for it.

    After last month's WiiWare windfall it shouldn't be a surprise that Japan is taking a little break from the service. Don't feel too bad for them, because there's three VC titles to tide over Wii downloaders and a few DSiWare titles from Nintendo as well.

    Sequel to a relatively unknown SNES game available very soon.

Out of the blue, it has now been announced that the game will be released in this Friday's European Wii and DSi update. Only recently did we learn that this is actually a..

For the Virtual Console there's Super Empire Strikes Back, the second game in the Super Star Wars series, which is based on the movie of the same name. Like the first game, it's..
