eShop game pricing is a hot topic — is $6 too much for a downloadable game? Should the store offer much shorter games for much less? Whatever your thoughts, empirical evidence shows Bird Mania 3D is the cheapest game to hit the 3DS yet.

At $1.99 it costs less than any Virtual Console game and is on par with the cheapest DSiWare, which might help you set your expectations at the right level. It's developed by long-standing DSiWare supporter Teyon, and all you have to do is help your bird fly as far as possible, avoiding enemies and picking up stars along the way.

The game's out in North America on 3rd May for $1.99.
