BearShark Game Coming To The 3DS eShop

You probably know how it's going to end

The aquaterrestrial tag team of BearShark have already been accessible on the 3DS through a series of shorts on Nintendo Video, but a game on College Humor’s predatory pair will soon be hitting the eShop as well. According to the slightly sarcastic description on Nintendo’s website, BearShark looks to be...

Review: Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo (3DS eShop)

Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo (3DS eShop)

Just a squirrel trying to get a nut

In early 2012, Little Acorns was released for iOS. It was a simple but charming title in which bespectacled squirrel Mr. Nibbles sought out acorns to prevent his family from starving. When we spell it out that way we realize it sounds rather morbid, but in practice it was a fun and addictive experience that we...

Big John Games Bids A Fond Farewell To DSiWare With Working Dawgs: Rivet Retriever

Top dawg

Big John Games has lifted the lid on what will be its final DSiWare release. Working Dawgs: Rivet Retriever is an action platform title which will retail for the modest sum of 200 DSi Points (or $1.99 on the 3DS eShop). The sequel to Working Dawgs: A-Maze-ing Pipes, Rivet Retriever is set across 20 different levels. Playing as Ace, you...

Talking Point: iDÉAME, Unity and Nintendo's Continuing Indie Crusade

iDÉAME, Unity and Nintendo's Continuing Indie Crusade

Yet more evidence of the vital role of smaller studios

If you go back even a relatively short amount of time, for example ten years, most gaming was locked down by fairly high profile releases from the great gate-keepers of the games industry, such as Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, Capcom, EA, Activision, Ubisoft and more. These names are all familiar...

Pixel Toys Tells Us About Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo, With Hints for the Future

From Super Turbo acorns, downloads will grow...

This week, Super Little Acorns 3D will arrive on the 3DS eShop in North America and Europe. It's developed and published by Pixel Toys, a UK-based studio founded last year. While a relatively small start-up, its founding members have extensive experience from major developers, with companies like...

Review: Soccer Up 3D (3DS eShop)

Soccer Up 3D (3DS eShop)

Own goal

These days, soccer games tend to fall on one of two ends of a spectrum: there's the relatively realistic sports simulation found in annual FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer instalments, and then there's the zany over-the-top action of the Super Mario Strikers and FIFA Street series. In the golden days of the Amiga, however, there were other...

Level 5 Teaser Site Hints at Guild02 Localisations

The black box returns

After U.S. trademarks were filed for titles that appear to be localisations of Level-5's Guild02 games, Level 5 International America has launched a teaser site similar to the one released for last year's Guild01 series. The Guild collections include small, unique titles from well-known game designers. Last year, Level 5...

SEGA Reveals Castle of Illusion HD But There's No Mention of Nintendo Versions

Wii U and 3DS appear to have been left out

Last week we reported on a teaser trailer from SEGA that showed off a game that looked remarkably like a new Castle of Illusion game. As if there was ever any doubt, it's been confirmed but astonishingly a Wii U or 3DS version was not mentioned. Castle of Illusion HD will be released on Xbox Live Arcade,...

Guild01 Titles Set For Discount in North America

Time to liberate these downloads

European Nintendo Download fans will have seen, in this morning's update, that the three localised Guild01 titles are set for a discount this week, which we optimistically hope is a precursor to confirmation of the Guild02 titles being brought West. The good news is that Level-5 has now confirmed the same deal...

Carps & Dragons is the Sort-Of Sequel to Fish-em All

Yes, really

You may have spotted a good few eShop game announcements in the last day or so, which are courtesy of iDÉAME13, the Nintendo-hosted Indie Developer's Conference held in Madrid over the weekend. Earlier on today we also told you about Cut the Rope being brought to the 3DS eShop by Abylight; the developer is also weighing in with an...

Review: Alien Chaos 3D (3DS eShop)

Alien Chaos 3D (3DS eShop)

Clean shooting

Alien Chaos 3D may be one of the eShop's cheaper titles, but it's fair to say that it's absolutely stuffed full of action. Developed by Ludosity, this 2D shooter has a fairly simple premise which is boosted by some fun and inventive gameplay features. The end result is a game that's surprisingly inventive, chaotically fun and rather...
