Review: Donkey Kong: Original Edition (3DS eShop / NES)

Donkey Kong: Original Edition (3DS eShop / NES)

Whole once again

The legendary arcade title Donkey Kong is slightly infamous for receiving a rather botched NES conversion. Lacking several screens, animations and even an entire stage, it wasn't exactly one of Nintendo's finer porting jobs, especially when other home versions by different companies did manage to include all of the original content...

More Minecraft Mania Looks Set for Wii U With Stone Shire

From voxel fans Finger Fun Games

Throughout human history we've had various eras in which one resource or object is craved in great numbers — we had the gold rush in the US, the coal rush wherever it's found, Rush the movie, RUSH the game and plenty more besides (you got a bit lost there - ed).

Review: The Keep (3DS eShop)

The Keep (3DS eShop)

Old dungeon, new tricks

Many dungeon crawlers tend to come pre-packaged with a dose of nostalgia through the nature of the genre alone, their exploration and equipment elements resonating as familiar conventions. Stick with a medieval fantasy theme like The Keep and it feels even more from Yon Olde School. The story of The Keep is kept rather...
