Brunch Panic To Bring Catering Madness to the 3DS eShop

Bagels! Sandwiches! Panic!

Circle Entertainment is to continue its record as one of the most prolific developers and publishers on Nintendo Download platforms with Brunch Panic, a resource management / action game that sees you provide lunch — or brunch, we guess — to lots of quirky characters. Developed by FK Digital, this certainly appears to...

Review: Family Bowling 3D (3DS eShop)

Family Bowling 3D (3DS eShop)

Pins with kin

If you were fortunate enough to grow up near a bowling alley, you might have fond memories of family outings full of comically unappealing shoes, embarrassing bowling stances from certain members of your clan, and slipping spectacularly on finely polished floors at least once. You probably didn't get to throw a twelve-pound ball at a...

Critical reaction, the Wii U eShop and picking 3DS over smartphones

Review: Happy Circus (3DS eShop)

Happy Circus (3DS eShop)

When an Otter's happiness means a golden jacket

It's easy for older gamers to be miserable cynics when edutainment games come around, lazily categorising them as shovelware and stating with unsubstantiated confidence that no one buys these downloads. Except, someone is buying them, as the range of these titles is slowly growing on the 3DS; more...

Review: Mystery Murders: The Sleeping Palace (3DS eShop)

Mystery Murders: The Sleeping Palace (3DS eShop)

Dead or just resting?

You won't have to look long to find quite a few hidden-object games on the 3DS eShop, but the Mystery Murders series stands out by attempting to inject a little soul into the I-Spy formual. Equal parts PC-style adventure game and Where's Waldo whodunit, they frame the item-finding with simple puzzles and spooky stories. The...

Review: Picross e3 (3DS eShop)

Picross e3 (3DS eShop)

Fun and repetition Picross paths

There’s a question you must ask yourself before proceeding: do you want to play Picross? There’s been ample time to give the pastime a try, what with all the previous games put out by Jupiter, and the next step in this journey is remarkably similar to the last one. Picross e3 is a finely crafted puzzle game worth...

Keiji Inafune Won't Rule Out Publishing Mighty No. 9 With Capcom

Would consider Mega Man options with an "offer we couldn’t refuse"

Kickstarter is an interesting model, in that a developer can seek investment from the public — or perhaps you think of it as advance pre-orders, donations? — but then still seek a traditional publisher after using crowdfunded money to make the game. In theory there's nothing...

It's Monday morning, European Nintendo gamers, which means happy download news to bring smiles to our faces.

Family Table Tennis 3D (3DS eShop)

Family, friendly - fun?

After developing something of an unenviable reputation on WiiWare, Arc System Works' Family series of sports games has been reborn as a dependably decent option on the 3DS' eShop. Following on from Family Tennis 3D and Family Kart 3D, Family Table Tennis 3D is the latest in the line, and while it isn't quite up to the...

Nintendo Considering Cross-Buy eShop Purchases, But Doesn't Have Anything To Announce Yet

Feature will be added if enough developers demand it

If you own a PS3 and PC Vita then you'll be aware of the excellent "Cross-Buy" function, which allows you to purchase a game on one system and then download it on the other for free — provided it's available on both in the first place, of course. With so many Virtual Console titles now appearing...
