Mad Dog McCree Takes Aim at 3DS

Strictly old-school

In its relatively short existence so far, the 3DS eShop has already enjoyed its fair share of vintage download titles. The latest to emerge — somewhat unexpectedly — is Mad Dog McCree, a full motion video (FMV) arcade shooter. Originally an arcade machine, this simple point-and-shoot title made its way to different disc-based...

Bomb Monkey Aiming for a Spring Explosion

Renegade Kid co-founder hopes so

Last week we brought you the news that Renegade Kid had teased a new game for eShop, Bomb Monkey. There were no significant details on the title's web page, but we made a guess that its a puzzle game that involves using the monkey to blow up blocks in an aztec setting.

Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters (3DS eShop / Game Boy)

Heavenly

When the original Kid Icarus hit the NES, many gamers weren't sure exactly what to think of it.

Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream (3DS eShop / NES)

Dreamy

With ten NES titles originally released on the 3DS for Ambassadors only, it wasn't much of a stretch to expect the first ten put up for sale to be the same games. But we've already received a title that actually wasn't part of the Ambassador batch, and Nintendo has picked one of the best possible games. Originally released in 1987,...
