You Can Design a New Level for Pazuru and Win a Neat Figurine

Update will add three user-generated stages to full game

The 3DS eShop has a number of high quality and clever puzzle games, and Pazuru is a solid recent addition. It has a neat approach, but also adds to the core content with a level creation tool. Developer Moragami is now aiming to put that lever creator to good use, and is offering up a fairly...

Capcom's Spring Sale Offers Up Six eShop Discounts in North America

Street Fighter! Resident Evil! DuckTales!

The eShop stores on Wii U and 3DS often have a range of discounts, and Capcom is the latest to cut prices on some of its biggest releases.

Review: Johnny Dynamite (3DS eShop)

Johnny Dynamite (3DS eShop)

Defused

Imagine a 2D game with a simple premise: collect all pieces of dynamite in each stage without taking any damage. Instead of running and jumping around like you would in a traditional platformer, you thrust freely throughout the bite-sized stages with a trusty jetpack. With unlimited use of this ability, along with an endless supply of...

Image & Form Considering SteamWorld Heist DLC, But Not For Day One

"It needs to be something more"

SteamWorld Heist is certainly one of the most prominent Indie downloads on the way this year, with Image & Form's 2D strategy title set to come to the eShop on Wii U and 3DS, along with a host of other platforms. The studio's been keeping fans up to date with weekly updates, too, tackling questions and running...

The Pokémon Company Wants You To Enjoy Plenty of Pokémon Rumble World Toy Unlock Codes in Europe

Charizard has a Mega Stone, too

Pokémon Rumble World is Nintendo's most recent free-to-play venture on the 3DS, blending button mashing and brawling with strategy to utilise super effective combinations.

Legendary Regirock Rocks The Scene In The Latest Pokemon Shuffle Challenge

Pedra Valley also added to main stages

Review: Bloo Kid 2 (3DS eShop)

Bloo Kid 2 (3DS eShop)

Doesn't make us feel bloo

Originally developed for mobile platforms, Bloo Kid 2 was well received back in 2014; indie developer 'winterworks' delivered a solid 2D platformer with responsive touchscreen controls. Although still a decent choice for the discerning mobile user, Bloo Kid 2 clearly becomes a much tougher proposition on the Nintendo 3DS...

Review: Runny Egg (3DS eShop)

Runny Egg (3DS eShop)

Sunny side up

Budget-priced titles are a tempting option for consumers: for less than the price of a coffee you can get a video game. Unfortunately, not every game is up to the standards of indie gems like Gunman Clive, and sometimes even the most inexpensive titles can leave players feeling ripped off. Thankfully, Runny Egg joins a growing...

Nintendo Download: 7th May (North America)

7th May (North America)

Splatoon demo-ish, strangeness, retro Mega Man, Atlus goodness and more

After a delay while the Splatoon Direct festivities were completed, we now have the download update details for North America. There's a much-hoped for demo (sort of), classic Mega Man, platformers on the 3DS, a whole load of discounts, DLC and a particularly quirky Indie...

Review: Titanic Mystery (3DS eShop)

Titanic Mystery (3DS eShop)

My heart can't go on

If you aren't some form of malicious AI bent on revenge against humanity, then the idea of mixing puzzle gameplay together with tragic events might not make very much sense. It's a strange combination that has "honoured" the RMS Titanic in particular with several different examples, and we've pondered both the implications and...

Review: Best Friends - My Horse 3D (3DS eShop)

Best Friends - My Horse 3D (3DS eShop)

​Put this one out to pasture

It seems as though publishers just can't get enough horse related games released on the 3DS, with Best Friends - My Horse 3D being the sixth one; you'd think by now that horse racing simulator games would have been mastered, but you'd be sadly mistaken. Best Friends - My Horse 3D does absolutely nothing to improve on...

It's Hats Off to the Latest SteamWorld Heist Ambassador Challenge

For all you doodlers out there

With SteamWorld Heist heading to Wii U, 3DS and a load of other systems later this year, Image & Form is keen to keep its fans busy in the build-up. Part of those efforts are bi-weekly competitions for someone to become a SteamWorld Ambassador; they'll get to play Heist before it comes out and get free copies on...

Talking Point: Nintendo's Legacy Makes The Virtual Console Essential, But It Must Modernise

Nintendo's Legacy Makes The Virtual Console Essential, But It Must Modernise

Idealism should make way for realism

Technologically, the world is busier and noisier than it's ever been before. So many gadgets and screens demand our time and loyalty, from smart TVs with hundreds of channels and streaming apps, to smartphones and tablets and, of course, game systems. Those with a decent amount of spare cash that are anxious to...
