Quarth is Blasting Onto the 3DS Virtual Console Soon
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Think of it as Tetris X Space Invaders
The slow drip-feed of Game Boy titles on the 3DS Virtual Console may frustrate some that would prefer a deluge, but we can confirm — thanks to our source at Nintendo of America — another title from the extensive back catalogue that's due to arrive in the next couple of weeks. This time around it's Quarth, the puzzle/shmup hybrid from Konami, and it's due to arrive in the North American eShop in the next couple of weeks.
In this title you control a ship at the bottom of the screen, from which there seem to be a number to choose from, and you watch for incomplete shapes to emerge from the top; you shoot at the emerging blocks to fill them out into full shapes, at which stage they disappear and your target total for the level decreases. Like any puzzle game along these lines you can expect the action to speed up with more blocks than you can handle, and power ups to help you along the way.
It may not be the most iconic or well known Game Boy title, but some are sure to remember it. Do you think you'll be interested in downloading it?
