Secret Agent Files: Miami strives to combine hidden object gameplay with more traditional point/click puzzle solving and attempts to make good use of the 3DS’ features along the way; yet the end...

Nintendo of America Launches Weekly eShop Price Promotions

This week is all about the Zelda franchise

Flying in early as a Nintendo Direct treat

Review: Crazy Chicken: Director's Cut 3D (3DS eShop)

Crazy Chicken: Director's Cut 3D (3DS eShop)

Straight to DVD

Crazy Chicken: Director's Cut 3D is an odd title, in that it's unashamedly simplistic yet reliant on gamers that perhaps have a hint of obsessive compulsive behaviour or, alternatively, those that cherish retro games that do little more than give you the same task repeatedly and stick your name on a leaderboard. What this does do is...

Review: Arcade Classics 3D (3DS eShop)

Arcade Classics 3D (3DS eShop)

Six terrible games for the price of one terrible game

Mini-game collections have always run the quality gamut, but it's fair to say that the numbers are weighted much more heavily towards the negative end of the spectrum. For every Game & Watch Gallery there's a seemingly infinite number of Chuck E. Cheese's Arcade Rooms. So if we really wanted...

Rotten egg

Paid service World Gallery remains

Yesterday we reported that Nintendo had halted the Swapnote / Nintendo Letter Box SpotPass service due to some users utilising it to "exchange offensive material".
