Review: Gunman Clive 2 (3DS eShop)

Gunman Clive 2 (3DS eShop)

Panda-ing to its fans

When Gunman Clive arrived as a budget, bite-sized slice of action platforming on the 3DS in late 2012 it unsurprisingly earned a lot of praise. Its intentionally grubby paper aesthetic and simple, highly polished gameplay seemed like a loving - and skilful - homage to franchises such as Mega Man; that didn't go unnoticed by...

Review: Best of Mahjong (3DS eShop)

Best of Mahjong (3DS eShop)

A lovely pair

Mahjong is a tile-based game that is utterly steeped in history and mystery – nobody really knows how old it is, as many different sources claim different dates of conception, and it seems nobody's keen to agree any time soon. This Chinese game is highly regarded in the East, but its presence in the West is significantly less...

Petit Computer Getting Programmed Out of the 3DS eShop on 31st January

Making way for a new generation of BASIC

Petit Computer is one of the most intriguing apps on the DSi Shop / 3DS eShop, as it allows users to utilise the BASIC code-base to create small games on the DSi hardware or - courtesy of backward compatibility - the 3DS.

Starr Mazer Crosses Point-And-Click With 2D Shooting, And Could Be 3DS-Bound

"A new game experience, not two games in one"

You may have noticed that our coverage of Kickstarter projects has cooled over the past few months, largely because so many came with dubious Nintendo-related stretch goals that they had no dream of ever reaching. We've become a bit more selective about what crowd-funded projects we cover these days, but...
