There Are Still Some Games On the Way to DSiWare in 2012

Emerging Victorious

Nintendo Europe's DS release list for 2012 doesn't contain much in the way of retail — apart from the announcement that Inazuma Eleven 2 is on the way to Europe — with the rest of the schedule populated by DSiWare games. One of the new titles announced is Victorious: Hollywood Arts Debut, which has just come out as a full-priced retail release on DS. Pity anyone who paid..

Review: Castle Conqueror - Against (DSiWare)

Castle Conqueror - Against (DSiWare)

Another day in paradise

Another Castle Conqueror game? If CIRCLE Entertainment keeps this up, this just might turn into a monthly tradition. It's worth reading our previous reviews of Castle Conqueror and Castle Conqueror — Revolution as the gameplay here is largely the same as its real-time predecessors. The basic concept remains untouched:...

Cake Ninja is Fruit Ninja But With Cakes Instead

Ninja

Never let it be said that originality is dead. Cypronia is about to unleash Cake Ninja on an unsuspecting DSiWare service next week. The game tells the story of a ninja sent to destroy all the cake so his wife can't eat it. We're not making this up. As you can see in the video below it's more than a little similar to Fruit Ninja. Cake Ninja is...

DSiWare Goes Commando in Steel Disaster on 22nd December

Ten-hut!

Cinemax is best known for its Rytmik games but it's got something entirely different lined up for Europe in the next few weeks. Commando: Steel Disaster is an old-fashioned run-and-gun shooter that saw a retail release in North America several years ago, but Cinemax and developer Mana Software are taking another shot at it with a DSiWare release.

Double Bloob (DSiWare)

Bloobin' boring

For those who aren't aware, Double Bloob was actually announced over four years ago as a DS retail title. After disappearing for a few of those years, the game has now resurfaced on DSiWare. It'd be easy to assume that those four years of development time were used to make sure that the game was polished and enjoyable. That assumption would be dead wrong. Double Bloob allows you to..

Might leave you hungry for more a few hours later

DSiWare isn’t just for games, you know. Comprising a small, inconspicuous corner of the market, a handful of language applications serve to assist those who can’t quite afford a pocket translator or a class at the civic centre. So far we’ve seen entries in German, French and Spanish, and now...

Elementary, dear Watson

Lists. Who needs 'em? Whether it's a shopping list or a year-end "Best Of" list, you just know when you're writing it that you'll end up forgetting something important. When the year ends, Battle of the Elements probably won't be on our Best Of list. If you're the kind of person that makes lists of games to buy,...

Come On! Heroes (DSiWare)

Arrowsmith

Hot on the heels of the similarly named Castle Conqueror - Heroes comes CIRCLE Entertainment's Come On! Heroes. It's similar in title only, however, as the gameplay and presentation hearken most closely back to the first Castle Conqueror game. This isn't a bad thing but, unfortunately, a lack of variety really lets this release down...
