Van Helsing sniper Zx100 (3DS eShop)

No, Hugh Jackman's not in this one

Barcelona-based developer EnjoyUp Games got our hopes up for this – after the surprising success of its atmospheric Abyss on the Wii U eShop last month, the trailer for EnjoyUp's new 3DS-exclusive Van Helsing Sniper Zx100 demonstrated a first-person gallery shooter set in a neon sci-fi dystopian future London;...

Natsume Confirms Two Game Boy Color Titles Coming to 3DS Virtual Console

Harvest Moon rising

If you're the superstitious type, you might be cowering at the fact that today is both Friday the 13th and the rising of a full moon; a doubly "unlucky" coincidence. If you're a Harvest Moon or Lufia fan, however, today's news from Natsume brings much more benevolent tidings. Natsume has posted a roundup of their 3DS digital...

Review: Super Dodge Ball (3DS eShop / NES)

Super Dodge Ball (3DS eShop / NES)

Super Lag Ball

Many people are familiar with River City Ransom, the cult classic NES game, but what you might not know is that it's actually part of a series with many, many more titles. Of course, that can be hard to figure out when those that were localized all got completely unrelated names. Interestingly, while the series is mostly known in the...

Review: 1001 Spikes (3DS eShop)

1001 Spikes (3DS eShop)

Exquisite torture

We'll get this out of the way right now: 1001 Spikes is hard. So hard, in fact, that it's deliberately unfair. Those of you turned off by that knowledge can save yourself a great deal of frustration by walking on by. Anyone up to the challenge, however, is in for one of the most satisfying platforming experiences in recent years...

Review: Mega Man Xtreme 2 (3DS eShop / Game Boy Color)

Mega Man Xtreme 2 (3DS eShop / Game Boy Color)

An Xtreme Improvement

Mega Man Xtreme left us feeling a bit underwhelmed. While its intentions were certainly good, the execution was lacking and the experience felt like a far clunkier retread of levels we've already played before, rather than much of a game in its own right. However it's worth noting that the game was originally released for the...

"We are but humble purveyors of video games"

The name may be iconic, but the company has decided to change its identity to the rather...

Review: Color Zen (3DS eShop)

Color Zen (3DS eShop)

Nirvana on the go

Last month we reviewed the Wii U version of Color Zen, a relaxing abstract puzzler in which you match geometric shapes with colours as a soothing electronica soundtrack plays in the background. This week the chilled-out title arrives on 3DS largely intact; it's essentially the same game, shrunk down to the small screen(s). It's the...
