Review: DotMan (DSiWare)

DotMan (DSiWare)

Not quite on point

Welcome to DotMan, the game of driving in circles. And that's it, basically. There's also a small amount of strategy, along with boredom and frustration, but we'll deal with those shortly. DotMan has its roots in classic games like Dodge 'Em and Pac-Man, but that's a bit like saying Twilight has its roots in Bram Stoker's Dracula: it's a thematic comparison only, and says nothing..

Cut the Rope to Slice Up EU DSiWare on 22nd September

When it comes to quality downloads, will this make the cut?

Among the best-received iOS titles is Cut the Rope, which represents along with others like Angry Birds that quality gaming is possible on smartphones, iPads and the like. We've just learned via the European Nintendo Channel that it's heading to DSiWare on 22nd September from Chillingo for 500 Points. Originally developed by ZeptoLab, it's..

Review: House, M.D. - Episode 2: Blue Meanie (DSiWare)

House, M.D. - Episode 2: Blue Meanie (DSiWare)

Blue all over

Earlier this summer saw the release of Legacy Interactive’s first DSiWare game, House, M.D. - Episode 1: Globetrotting. If you played the game, or simply read our review, then you’ll know that this maiden voyage was not a very successful one for the company. Now, several months later, the series continues with House M.D. - Episode 2: Blue Meanie, the second instalment in the..

Tanukii Studios - Go! Go! Kokopolo and Beyond

We sit down with the sole member of the young DSiWare dev

Here at Nintendo Life, two things we love are creative independent developers and unique game designs. One great example of the latter is the recently released Go! Go! Kokopolo, a quirky, challenging downloadable title that hit the DSi Shop a little while ago and scored an 8/10 in our Go!...

Here's what's available for you today. 3DS Virtual ConsoleGolf (Game Boy, Nintendo, $2.99) — Take to the links in this simple take on a good walk spoiled.

Review: 1950s Lawn Mower Kids (DSiWare)

1950s Lawn Mower Kids (DSiWare)

A bit of a chore

When it comes to attempts to turn boring, low-paid jobs into exciting DSiWare downloads, Zordix AB jumped to the fore with Valet Parking 1989. It was an intriguing but flawed game, jam packed with nostalgia and 80’s humour. The developer is now continuing the theme of decade-specific chore simulation with 1950s Lawn Mower Kids. The very idea of turning grass cutting into a full..

8th September 2011 (Europe)

Two to tango

Most kids have gone back to school, so perhaps that's why this week's Nintendo Download is so slim, to minimise distractions from the very serious studying going on. Or there's simply nothing good to release this week and any proximity to children returning to full-time education is merely coincidental. Whichever it is, here's your two to choose from this week.

Review: Bridge (DSiWare)

Bridge (DSiWare)

Over troubled water

It’s one of the simplest forms of entertainment: if all electronic entertainment is unavailable, when there is nothing else to do, a simple pack of playing cards can save the day. Card games can be simplistic or confusing and complex, with straightforward options often seeming suitable as cheap downloads on the DSi shop. More complicated options are available, such as World..

If you're nodding vigorously — or have no idea what we're talking about — then you might want to check out Rytmik Retrobits. Unlike previous instalments Hip Hop King: Rytmik Edition and Rytmik: Rock Edition, the game isn't..

Let's Create! Pottery (DSiWare)

Let's not

Let's Create! Pottery may have the least appealing title this side of Let's Perform! Complex Trigonometry and Let's Compose! A Musical About Kobe Bryant's Lunch, but its problems run much deeper than that. Mainly, it’s just not very fun. The game begins with a title screen that offers several options, but none of them involve starting...
