SteamWorld Dig (3DS eShop)

A gem to discover

At its best, the 3DS eShop is host to titles with a simple, well-formed idea that's executed with care and skill. SteamWorld Dig, the second in the SteamWorld franchise from developer Image & Form, fits into that mould, incorporating puzzle platforming mechanics within a continuous process of digging and resource management...

Still room for improvement

Review: Smash Bowling 3D (3DS eShop)

Smash Bowling 3D (3DS eShop)

Bumpier bowling

Smash Bowling 3D, the latest from Big Bass Arcade developer Big John Games, feels like a proof-of-concept for a potentially great bowling game. While the bowling simulation is fun while it lasts, the bare bones presentation and lack of variety in game modes ultimately bring down the experience. Big John Games has touted Smash Bowling...

Review: 10-in-1: Arcade Collection (3DS eShop)

10-in-1: Arcade Collection (3DS eShop)

Is it worth your hard-earned quarters?

Retro enthusiasts may be disappointed to learn that 10-in-1 Arcade Collection doesn't actually include any arcade greats of yesteryear. Luck would have it that Atari — despite decades of financial turmoil and even bankruptcy — still holds the rights to most of its impressive back catalogue. It's a similar...

Review: Bike Rider DX (3DS eShop)

Bike Rider DX (3DS eShop)

Smooth Ride

Bike Rider DX doesn't have much in the way of exposition. It looks like a simple game, and it is: players guide a constantly-advancing cyclist through different stages, using a single button to jump over obstacles, pitfalls, and enemies on the way to the goal. This certainly isn't a new idea, but it wraps it up in a polished package...
