Nintendo Download: 25th August 2011 (Europe)

Posted by James Newton

Three new titles

A trio of games round out August in Europe, with something on DSiWare, WiiWare and the 3DS Virtual Console as the Wii's Virtual Console drought continues. Here's what's dropping in this week.

3DS Virtual Console

Gargoyle's Quest (Game Boy, Capcom, €4/£3.60) — The ugly gargoyle appears on Virtual Console in this 2D adventure spin-off from the popular Ghouls and Ghosts series. We'll have a review for you shortly to let you know if it's worth your points.


Aya and the Cubes of Light (Object Vision, 1000pts) — Object Vision's mind-bending gravity platform-puzzler finally comes to WiiWare following a delay to fine-tune the gaming experience based on feedback received. Can it provide enough enjoyment to justify the premium price tag? We'll find out after Thursday, in the meantime you can read our first impressions.


Bridge (GameOn, 500pts) — It's bridge, with local multiplayer and chat functions too. We'll see if you should pick it up or pass it on later this week.

Anything for you from this trio?

I would have taken a punt at Gargoyle's Quest at €3 since I never played it but at €4 I might wait for a review. I know it's only €1 more but since I only have €5 left it can mean the difference of picking up a €2 dsiware game.

Nada. Nothing. Zilch. Nowt. Sweet F.A. What a load of rubbish.

Where's Flipnote Memo?

Gargoyle's Quest is awesome. Go get it. Since I still have the original cartridge, I won't though.

That WiiWare title sounds interesting, waiting for the review first though.

i think i will get gargoyles quest review or no.ive heard good things about it should be getting lot more games a week on thursday still waiting for ambassador check my 3ds at launch but would still like to check



Dazza said:

Gargoyle's Quest is one of my favourite GB games, this is definitely worth buying. It's gonna be even better with the 3DS suspend save so you don't have to write those troublesome passwords down



Kit said:


Gargoyles quest is brilliant. A little difficult, but then that just adds to the appeal of the game. I played this through when it first came out for my GB I'll definitely be getting this for my 3DS. Gr8 game, highly recommended!!!



XCWarrior said:

No one things Aya and the Cubes of Light looks interesting? Best thing it seems to end up on WiiWare in quite some time.



Kifa said:

I will probably skip Gargoyle's Quest in favor of Metroid II - I just hope we won't have to wait for that for very long... :/



Monsti said:

Yeeeeess....looking forward to Gargyles. Haven't played it in "a while" ^^



Omega said:

Aya and the Cubes of Light looks very interesting. I'm tempted to buy this one but I'm waiting for some reviews and game footage on YouTube.

Gargoyle's Quest is very good. It's like Mega Man meets Ghosts'n Goblins but you can cling to the walls and even fly a short distance. There are also some RPG elements. If I had a 3DS and would not own the cartridge already, I would definitely buy this gem.

Waiting for reviews on Aya and the Cubes of Light and Gargoyle's Quest. Though it's nearly guaranteed that i'll get and experience Gargoyle's Quest for the first time.

yo guys if you want a gameboy frame for your 3ds hold start and select when you start the gameboy game and the gameboy frames will come and if you want orginal green gameboy color press L + R + Y while in game. its so cool and the resolutions becomes better



Cheezy said:

Is that Patrick Star on the bottom-left of the Gargoyle's Quest cover?

Metroid II is said to come "Q4" so expect it sometime between October and New Year.

I seem to remember hearing good things about Gargoyle's Quest. Definitely looking forward to that review.



Ristar42 said:

Pleased to see Gargoyle's Quest, but I still want to know what happened to other consoles we were told would be on 3DS VC at launch, specifically the Game Gear!

I also want Super Hang-On on the Wii, but it seems Nintendo has forgotten that the Wii VC exists.



WaveBoy said:

Would it be better to grab a copy of the Nes version of Gargoyles Quest Rather than play the GB Version?



Henmii said:

So Gargoyle's Quest is a spin-off to Ghost's n goblins! I never knew this!

Gargoyle's quest seems pretty good and knowing now that it is a spin-off to Ghost's n goblins makes it extra attractive. Maybe I'll download it when I have a 3DS!



Supremeist said:

My birthday is this Thursday! Gargoyle's Quest will be a little gift to myself, I guess.



Omega said:

@WaveBoy: Gargoyle's Quest on the GB and Gargoyle's Quest II on the NES are different games. The best would be to grab copies of both. Like @Sabrewing mentioned, there's also a second sequel on the SNES called Demon's Crest.

gargoyles quest looks interesting..

but meh for the rest.. I thought The Rolling Western was supposed to come out this month? =(



RedBlueSpot said:

Gargoyles Quest is AWESOME!!!!!! I've been waiting forever for this. I wish Capcom would make a new GC for the Wii och 3DS. And it should keep to the basics and don't be a Demons Crest.



TromaDogg said:

Gargoyle's Quest is an awesome little platform/RPG....was the first game I ever bought for my original Gameboy so I'll probably download this. Aya looks like the kind of game I'd like too, I'll be interested to see how the review turns out.
