Tales to Enjoy! Three Little Pigs (DSiWare)

A case of swine flu

If you’ve been hanging around the site during the past two weeks, chances are you’ve at least stumbled onto one Tales to Enjoy review. These games are compilations of activities targeted at kids who are just learning how to read, write, and develop basic problem solving skills. Each one uses an identical interface, but...

Review: Letter Challenge (DSiWare)

Letter Challenge (DSiWare)

Missing the mark

There isn’t really an interesting or unique way to introduce Letter Challenge, but that might be the point. There are plenty of word-based puzzle games available in the world, and so many of them already exist in one form or another on the Nintendo eShop, but that wasn’t enough to stop Enjoy Gaming from throwing another one...

Review: Jewel Adventures (DSiWare)

Jewel Adventures (DSiWare)

Woo-hoo, glitchy woman

Jewel Adventures is a puzzle game that’s partially familiar due to its match three gameplay, but freshened up by a few extra layers of depth. A sense of story, enemy battles, world (re)building and various gameplay goals are the glue that gives this puzzler a bit more substance than most like it. Much of it is only fluff –...

Nintendo Download: 5th September (North America)

5th September (North America)

Dungeons & dragons, twisted dreams, rare retro shooting and much more

It's Nintendo Download update day, North America, and there are some real goodies on offer this week. We have long awaited Wii U eShop games, a rare NES shoot 'em up on the 3DS Virtual Console and various other treats. Without further ado, here are the details. Wii U eShop:...

Review: Cute Witch! Runner (DSiWare)

Cute Witch! Runner (DSiWare)

Magical Nights

With last year's Dress to Play: Cute Witches!, developer Coder Child channeled both Cotton and cosplay into a unique mix of dress-up and side-scrolling flight, a solid concept that we felt was let down by poor execution on the fashion side of the equation. We found plenty to like about the airborne action, however, and that's the main...

Nintendo Download: 25th July (North America)

25th July (North America)

Kid Icarus, chain blasting, Picross puzzling and more

It's that time again, North America, and after releasing a long awaited cult classic last week, the Nintendo Download Update is fairly reserved this week. There are some goodies to enjoy, nevertheless, so let's get to the details. Wii U Virtual Console: Kid Icarus (Nintendo, $4.99) — Not...

Review: Fashion Tycoon (DSiWare)

Fashion Tycoon (DSiWare)

Fashion disaster

If there's one thing that Fashion Tycoon truly achieves, it's the way in which it makes you appreciate just how hard retail workers have it at times. Much like in real life, demanding customers, stock shortages and a lack of staff are just some of the problems you find yourself up against in this game — it's a nightmarish...

Review: Rhythm Core Alpha 2 (DSiWare)

Rhythm Core Alpha 2 (DSiWare)

Bring life back to music

Musicians both aspiring and experienced have had copious opportunities to break out into song with their DSi thanks to a cornucopia of software suites, including 2010's Rhythm Core Alpha that brought an emphasis on live performances to the table. Developer SoftEgg's sequel Rhythm Core Alpha 2 is the most advanced one yet to...

Review: Lost Treasures of Alexandria (DSiWare)

Lost Treasures of Alexandria (DSiWare)

The perfect match?

Lost Treasures Of Alexandria's release on the DSi Shop comes as something of a surprise. That's because it's the first game in a short while to break the trend of poor Match-3 games to which the service has been cruelly subjected. In fact, this latest game rectifies many of the issues that plagued publisher MSL's other recent...
