Review: Orion's Odyssey (DSiWare)

Orion's Odyssey (DSiWare)

A little Odyssey

Island Officials' Kickstarter-funded puzzler Orion's Odyssey is the spiritual successor to Hands On! Tangrams, a fun but one-note title that had solid gameplay but little variety and was severely lacking in presentation. Island Officials has crafted a more polished experience with a charming presentation and story, but with...

Nintendo Download: 26th December and 2nd January (Europe)

26th December and 2nd January (Europe)

Storming castles, classic Mario, Pokémon banking, EDGE and much more

Update: Nintendo of Europe issued details for two full weeks of downloads previously, so a fresh update isn't expected. Please note that Pokémon Bank has been delayed due to the Nintendo Network server issues encountered during the festive season. Original Article: With this...

Review: Crash 'n the Boys: Street Challenge (3DS eShop / NES)

Crash 'n the Boys: Street Challenge (3DS eShop / NES)

Challenge accepted

What do you get when you combine the River City Ransom theme with Track and Field-style gameplay? You get Crash 'n the Boys: Street Challenge. The game takes the street gang theme and creates some fitting Olympic-style events to go along with it. It sounds like a mouth-watering proposition, but sadly while the unique urban...

A Year in Development - Renegade Kid

A Q & A with Jools Watsham on 2013

In the second of our "Year in Development" mini-series, we sit down for a Q & A with Jools Watsham, co-founder and main spokesman for Renegade Kid. We already reported on confirmation of Mutant Mudds Deluxe content as a free update on 3DS, and below is the full manuscript that focuses on the studio's year,...

Review: My Style Studio: Hair Salon (3DS eShop)

My Style Studio: Hair Salon (3DS eShop)

Crimped style

Remember that toy where you used a magnetic wand to move iron filings over a drawing of a guy’s head, creating hair, moustaches, and eyebrows? My Style Studio: Hair Salon feels a bit like that, except with less personality and sense of joy. The Hair Salon does offer you more options, in certain ways. There are five “customers”...

Review: Jump Trials Supreme (3DS eShop)

Jump Trials Supreme (3DS eShop)

Might as well jump!

On DSiWare, G-Style's Jump Trials games followed in the fleet footsteps of 10 Second Run, providing short bursts of one-track, one-button gameplay with no fuss and few frills; if Super Mario Bros. is an epic platforming poem, Jump Trials is a list of words that rhyme with "cat". There's certainly a place for the simpler things in...

The SteamWorld Dig developer shares its 2013 experience

In the first of a mini-series here on Nintendo Life, some of the most respected eShop developers share their experiences of 2013. First up we have Brjann Sigurgeirsson of Image & Form, which brought us the terrific SteamWorld Dig on the 3DS eShop. Below is the studio's 2013, in...

News: Retro City Rampage Confirmed for Q1 2014 and a Discount Price on 3DS

Retro City Rampage Confirmed for Q1 2014 and a Discount Price on 3DS

The release will also hit Australia and New Zealand

Retro City Rampage was a welcome slice of anarchic madness on WiiWare, though the flaws of the service and a download userbase long gone blunted the title's impact on Nintendo's system. Nevertheless, it was released on pretty much every other platform, so it was pleasing when the 3DS was confirmed...

Nintendo Minute Highlights Its eShop and Wii U Favourites of 2013

Nintendo Life also makes a very brief cameo...

Not too long ago we told you about the Nintendo Minute show kicking off its Favourites of 2013 with the 3DS. Since then two new episodes have emerged covering the eShop platforms and the Wii U, as it all builds up to the overall favourites that are yet to be published. The eShop list in particular has...

Exclusive: Mutant Mudds Deluxe Content Coming as a Free Update on 3DS

Mutant Mudds Deluxe Content Coming as a Free Update on 3DS

Q1 2014 is the target

In October 2012 Renegade Kid provided those that own the 3DS eShop original of Mutant Mudds with 20 free 'Granny' levels that had previously been available on the PC version of the game. In a conversation with the studio's Jools Watsham today he's confirmed to us that Q1 2014 — potentially March — will bring another free...

Review: 3D Ecco The Dolphin (3DS eShop)

3D Ecco The Dolphin (3DS eShop)

A bit grim beneath the surface

Ecco the Dolphin has always been something of an oddity. At the time of release, the Mega Drive / Genesis platform was defined by its solid arcade ports and action-packed titles such as Golden Axe and Ghouls 'n' Ghosts, so when a dolphin-based adventure came along it was a totally original concept for players to take...

Review: 3D Streets of Rage (3DS eShop)

3D Streets of Rage (3DS eShop)

Street smart

When Nintendo secured the domestic conversion of Capcom's Final Fight for its newly-launched SNES console way back at the dawn of the '90s, it left many Sega fans utterly distraught. Cody, Haggar and Guy's coin-op escapade was the hottest ticket in arcades at a time when the side-scrolling fighter was very much the genre of choice...

Nintendo of Europe's Ed Valiente Highlights the Creative Value of Indie Developers

"If there are interesting, creative... and fun games, consumers will come"

In what's surely been one of the most notable shifts of power in recent years, download and 'Indie' developers have gone from being underdogs struggling to release games to being central in a home console battleground. The continuing and extravagant growth of the PC Steam...
