Review: Chuck E. Cheese's Arcade Room (DSiWare)

Chuck E. Cheese's Arcade Room (DSiWare)

Cheese Louise

We're not sure why UFO Interactive bothered to get the Chuck E. Cheese license for this mirthless assortment of half-baked minigames, but we can conclusively say that it wasn't worth its time or the effort to do so. Chuck E. Cheese's Arcade Room is, in a word, awful. The first major issue is the stingy number of games available. We're...

Two 99seconds Trailers Last Longer Than 99 Seconds

But who's counting?

99seconds is a follow up to 99bullets, but instead of a shooter it's a game of extreme keep away. EnjoyUp has just sent over two new trailers showing the game in action, and it looks like a decent test of skill for those after some intense gaming. There's no release date or price for 99seconds yet, but we'll keep you posted.

Review: Penguin Patrol (DSiWare)

Penguin Patrol (DSiWare)

Snow major complaints; it's an ice game! Catch our drift?

The charmingly simple story of Penguin Patrol revolves around a young Eskimo who witnesses a greedy walrus slugging along with a sack full of distressed penguins. The walrus is obviously looking forward to a nice big dinner, but it's up to you to prevent him from getting that far. You...

It's pool! In the 90's!

The Berlin Wall has recently fallen, Seinfeld is dominating television and Justin Bieber has just been born. Yes, it's the 1990s and, for some reason, we're playing pool.
