Review: Crazy Chicken: Director's Cut 3D (3DS eShop)

Crazy Chicken: Director's Cut 3D (3DS eShop)

Straight to DVD

Crazy Chicken: Director's Cut 3D is an odd title, in that it's unashamedly simplistic yet reliant on gamers that perhaps have a hint of obsessive compulsive behaviour or, alternatively, those that cherish retro games that do little more than give you the same task repeatedly and stick your name on a leaderboard. What this does do is...

101 Penguin Pets 3D (3DS eShop)

These penguins might leave you cold

When was the last time you met someone who distinctly disliked nature’s own best-dressed Antarctic fowl, the penguin? The answer is probably “never”, and Teyon is here to capitalize on that fact with its newest virtual pet product — 101 Penguin Pets 3D. Aimed directly at unsuspecting children and designed...

Groove Heaven (3DS eShop)

Some call me “The Human Metronome”

It seems as though rhythm games have really taken off in the past few years, especially on the 3DS. Retail titles have popped up, such as Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy, and more recently the eShop has been receiving musical exclusives such as the wonderfully charming Harmoknight. Now Teyon, a publisher that's no...

Viral survival

Teyon's maintaining its formidable DSiWare output ratio with Escape the Virus: Swarm Survival out in North America this week. The 200 Point download asks you to form the longest DNA chain you can while dodging harmful viruses in Normal mode, or offers a Baby mode where you simply cart the DNA pieces to safety. WiiWare veterans may...

eShop Goes Cheap with Bird Mania 3D

Project $2

eShop game pricing is a hot topic — is $6 too much for a downloadable game? Should the store offer much shorter games for much less? Whatever your thoughts, empirical evidence shows Bird Mania 3D is the cheapest game to hit the 3DS yet. At $1.99 it costs less than any Virtual Console game and is on par with the cheapest DSiWare, which...

Flip Out Over 101 Pinball World in January

DSiWare turns the tables

Teyon's habit of cramming 101 things into one DSiWare game continues unchecked, with the next title from the Polish developer, 101 Pinball World, due on 12th January 2012. The DSiWare bumper basher will set you back 500 Points and includes 101 tables spread over four themed worlds: Wizard World, Alien Spaceship, Halloween and Pirate's bay. Let's hope the gameplay is a..

Blood? Simple

Teyon's been quiet on DSiWare for a while but that's about to change this week, as Chronicles of Vampires: Origins will reach North America on Thursday. The vampire-related hidden object puzzle will cost 500 Points and looks a lot — in fact, exactly — like the trailer below. Other games due to reach North America in this week's download include Mighty Switch Force, Doodle Fit and

How Many Levels of Breakout Is Enough?

100? 500?

How about 1,001? That's what's on offer in 1001 Blockbusters, the next DSiWare game due from Teyon and Selectsoft. The stack of power-ups — including magnetic paddles, protective walls and fiery and thorny balls — should hopefully keep things relatively fresh over the 1,001 levels of block-breaking that make up this 200 Point download that's out on 13th October. October 2011, San..

Shooter follow-up inbound

We may not have been completely blown away by wartime shooter Heavy Fire: Special Operations, but it obviously did the business for Teyon as the Polish publisher has announced it's bringing sequel Heavy Fire: Black Arms to WiiWare in the near future.
