Interview: Bertil Hörberg Jumps Back Into the Saddle With Gunman Clive 2

Bertil Hörberg Jumps Back Into the Saddle With Gunman Clive 2

"I felt I needed a bit more colour this time"

When it arrived with relatively little fanfare in December 2012, Gunman Clive appeared to be a cheap and cheerful Holiday title. Then we played it. What had seemed like a modest download game transpired to be a short slice of finely crafted fun with a charming aesthetic, which combined with a budget...

Shovel Knight Release Trailer Delivers Epicness in Spades

AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

We'd like to think that video game journalism has progressed past the era when we mindlessly slathered over screenshots of games and reviewed things in terms of heads that looked like they were about to explode, but if anything is to make us don our old neon shirts and bring "Radical!" back into style, it's the...

Ubisoft Runs Another eShop Discount Bonanza in North America

Because it can...

It seems that Ubisoft just can't help itself when it comes to eShop discount promotions. In what appears to be a bi-monthly occasion, it's slashed the prices of a substantial range of titles on both the Wii U and 3DS stores in order to drum up some more sales. There are plenty to get through, though no fresh discounts in Europe...

Review: Color Zen Kids (3DS eShop)

Color Zen Kids (3DS eShop)

Childlike innocence

If you read our review of Color Zen on 3DS earlier this month or Color Zen Kids on Wii U most recently, you're in for a familiar ride with the latter title on 3DS. The laid-back colour-matching puzzler with the sweeping electronic soundtrack is back, and this time your children can play it on the go. The objective of the...

Review: Van Helsing sniper Zx100 (3DS eShop)

Van Helsing sniper Zx100 (3DS eShop)

No, Hugh Jackman's not in this one

Barcelona-based developer EnjoyUp Games got our hopes up for this – after the surprising success of its atmospheric Abyss on the Wii U eShop last month, the trailer for EnjoyUp's new 3DS-exclusive Van Helsing Sniper Zx100 demonstrated a first-person gallery shooter set in a neon sci-fi dystopian future London;...

News: Natsume Confirms Two Game Boy Color Titles Coming to 3DS Virtual Console

Natsume Confirms Two Game Boy Color Titles Coming to 3DS Virtual Console

Harvest Moon rising

If you're the superstitious type, you might be cowering at the fact that today is both Friday the 13th and the rising of a full moon; a doubly "unlucky" coincidence. If you're a Harvest Moon or Lufia fan, however, today's news from Natsume brings much more benevolent tidings. Natsume has posted a roundup of their 3DS digital...

Review: Super Dodge Ball (3DS eShop / NES)

Super Dodge Ball (3DS eShop / NES)

Super Lag Ball

Many people are familiar with River City Ransom, the cult classic NES game, but what you might not know is that it's actually part of a series with many, many more titles. Of course, that can be hard to figure out when those that were localized all got completely unrelated names. Interestingly, while the series is mostly known in the...

Review: 1001 Spikes (3DS eShop)

1001 Spikes (3DS eShop)

Exquisite torture

We'll get this out of the way right now: 1001 Spikes is hard. So hard, in fact, that it's deliberately unfair. Those of you turned off by that knowledge can save yourself a great deal of frustration by walking on by. Anyone up to the challenge, however, is in for one of the most satisfying platforming experiences in recent years...

Review: Mega Man Xtreme 2 (3DS eShop / Game Boy Color)

Mega Man Xtreme 2 (3DS eShop / Game Boy Color)

An Xtreme Improvement

Mega Man Xtreme left us feeling a bit underwhelmed. While its intentions were certainly good, the execution was lacking and the experience felt like a far clunkier retread of levels we've already played before, rather than much of a game in its own right. However it's worth noting that the game was originally released for the...
