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.

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...

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,...

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.

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...

Dillon's Rolling Western: The Last Ranger (3DS eShop)

Spinning in place

It's been just over a year since the release of Dillon's Rolling Western, an interesting spin — pardon the pun — on the tower defense formula, starring a steely armadillo prone to communicating through loaded silence. As you can see from our review at the time we liked it, though not without reservations. Now we have a sequel,...
