We know you're bored of not being able to download any new 3D games to your beloved 3DS, and that any announcement of future 3DS downloads is like a faraway carrot, but indulge us anyway.
Enjoy Gaming has just announced Pyramids, a puzzle-platform adventure coming to download later this year. You play a fearless adventurer — wearing a hat, of course — who must escape from the titular tombs with as much loot as he can carry, avoiding traps and enemies along the way. You'll have TNT and a gun, but the emphasis is on using your shovel to destroy and create blocks to help you make your way to the exit.
The game will include 54 levels, but in a neat move more will be made available by scanning a QR code on the Enjoy Gaming website.
Here's the first trailer.

Pyramids is a puzzle/platform game where an explorer tries to get out the pyramids with his loots. The task will not be easy.

The explorer will venture through 54 challenging 3D levels divided in 6 worlds. At the end of each level, the player will obtain a star rating which will be used to unlock levels:
