Nintendo Download: 2nd August 2012 (North America)
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
A lost town, solitaire and reduced Mario
This week's North American update has relatively slim pickings, with Wii missing out entirely. There's one title each for eShop and DSiWare, a reduced Mario classic and a couple of videos, so let's look at what we have.
3D Solitaire (Zen Studios, $2.99) — The title tells you almost everything you need to know, with two modes that allow you to play Klondike 1 or Klondike 3 (one or three cards drawn at a time, respectively), and some attractive 3D animated backgrounds. It's a simple game at a budget price that gets the job done, as our 3D Solitaire review explains.
The Lost Town — The Jungle (CIRCLE Entertainment, 500pts) — The second title in the series, this action/adventure RPG tasks you with exploring the effects of a meteorite that landed in the Amazon jungle in 1997. We awarded the first title 7/10 in our The Lost Town — The Dust review, and we'll see whether this one's mix of quests, exploration and shooting are worth the adventure in the next few days.
Month of Mario
Super Mario Land (Reduced to $2.99 from 2nd August to 8th August) — The debut of the Super Mario series on Game Boy may not match the heights of its two sequels, but it's still a fun experience and now available with a $1 discount. Check out our Super Mario Land review to learn more about it.
Dinosaur Office: Coffee Run (free) — The dinosaurs face the only thing worse than extinction: a coffee shortage.
As the first part of a series over the next few weeks, there'll be a video for New Super Mario Bros. 2 on the eShop that shows one of the title's Rainbow courses. If discovered in the game, these areas apparently lead to a colossal number of coins, so this may be worth a watch.
