Nintendo Download: 12th July 2012 (Europe)

Sparkles and frogs

This week's Nintendo Download is a metaphorical mixed bag, with 3DS add-on content and WiiWare sitting alongside weird eShop applications. Scan the list below for the full lowdown.

3DS Download Software

Sparkle Snapshots 3D (Nintendo, £4.50/€5) — Remember Sparkle Snapshots on DSiWare? How would you like a similar experience on 3DS? Sounds good, except the app doesn't actually take 3D photos, so we're not sure of its purpose. Still, we'll have a full review soon.

3DS Add-On Content

Sparkle Snapshots 3D — £0.90/€1 each:

  • Mario Core Set
  • Mario Kart 7 Set

Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy — £0.90/€1 each:

  • The Archylte Steppe (FF13 — FMS)
  • Matoya's Cave (FF01 — FMS)
  • Battle 1 (FF03 — BMS)
  • The Final Battle (FF05 — BMS)

WiiWare

Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition (Konami, 1000pts) — That poor little amphibian keeps trying to cross that busy road, except this time you can use sprites from Castlevania and Contra too. We'll see if it's a step in the right direction or best left as roadkill with our upcoming review.

DSiWare

Topoloco (Abstraction Games, 500pts) — A game about maps! Except it's not really a game and the maps aren't that good. Read our Topoloco review then navigate your way as far from this game as possible.

99seconds (EnjoyUp Games, 200pts) — A quirky, classy little shooter with an intriguing premise, read our 99seconds review for more on this cheap and cheerful title.
