Posted by James Newton

Did Pullblox reach the top?

It's Monday morning and time to take a quick look at everything that's selling well in the Nintendo 3DS eShop across the UK.

With plenty of new releases last week it'll be interesting to see how the new titles fared against established titles.

[1] denotes last week's position. [N] indicates game is a new entry. [-] indicates a non-mover.

Intelligent Systems' block-pushing puzzler just misses out on the top spot. We also say goodbye to Pop Island: Paperfield, which takes a dramatic tumble from 9th to leave the chart all together.

Downloaded the very fun Catrap, Kirby's Adventure, Zen Pinball and Lock 'N Chase this Friday. Ninty's move to let you pay in less than 10 € intervals screamed celebration to me.

Also: Y u not Dr. Mario, DSi ?

It's always nice to have charts rather than vague, circumstantial guesses on how well these things are doing. Looking forward to having time to play Pullblox soon....

Zen Pinball is fantastic. I also had a lot of fun with Freaky Forms. It's really amazing to see these games outselling in weeks what other games took years to achieve. It would be great to see numbers but this sounds like the download service is really taking off.
