Hidden Photo (DSiWare)

Shutterbug fun, or shudder and run?

Two of today's most cherished timewasters are fun with photographs and hidden object puzzles, so it's a wonder that it's taken so long for someone to combine the two. Continuing on their recent trend of porting retail DS titles to downloadable DSiWare, Most Wanted and Subdued Games bring us Hidden Photo – but is...

Crazy Cheebo: Puzzle Party (DSiWare)

Just crazy enough to work

If there’s one thing that can certainly be said about DSiWare games, it’s this: no matter how ridiculous the name of your game is, it can be made. Proving this point with much gusto is Crazy Cheebo: Puzzle Party, the latest addition to the countless puzzle games already available on the service. But, beyond the title, is this one different and original enough to..

Review: Dreamwalker (DSiWare)

Dreamwalker (DSiWare)

A dream come true

We all know that there are plenty of puzzle games available on the DSiWare service, but every now and again one pops up that has just the right amount of charm to merit attention. Dreamwalker, the intriguing new puzzle game from Code Mystics, fits that description perfectly. From a silly concept to engaging and endearing visual and...

Everything you need to know about the 3DS eShop, internet browser and DSi transfer functionality

For those who bought their 3DS on launch day there was some disappointment. The eShop, internet browser and the ability to transfer DSiWare games and data were unavailable, promised in a ‘late May’ update. The update slid to early June, but it's...

Review: Puzzle Rocks (DSiWare)

Puzzle Rocks (DSiWare)

Puzzles rock

Cinemax has seen both highs and lows on DSiWare — its Rytmik games have proven to be excellent composition tools, but games like Snakenoid, a bizarre mix of Snake and Arkanoid have missed the mark. Puzzle Rocks is a puzzle game, but we're not quite sure it's really similar to anything else, except maybe Connect Four. It's one of very...

Review: B Team - Episode 1: Dust & Steel (DSiWare)

B Team - Episode 1: Dust & Steel (DSiWare)

Run and gun and not so fun

Run-’n-gun shooters usually wind up one of three ways: either they’re totally crazy awesome with intense action, really really boring, or rock-solid efforts that do no real wrong but regardless fail to spark much of anything in players. B Team - Episode 1: Dust & Steel is the heart-breaking latter kind of game. It isn’t that there is no fun to be had, as this..
